Monday at Last

Monday 6 November 2017 19.00Ends approximately 21.00
It’s Monday at last, and the string trio ZilliacusPerssonRaitinen continues to invite guest musicians to explore new and old music with them. We will welcome Russian violinist Alexander Sitkovetsky, who is active as a soloist with orchestras world-wide, and above all, a dedicated chamber musician – among other things, he leads his own Sitkovetsky Piano Trio.
The concert will begin with a duet by the enormously prolific Czech composer Bohuslav Martinu (1890–1959). Bulgarian Dobrinka Tabakova (b. 1980), something of a child prodigy who won a composition contest in Vienna at just 14 years old, studied in London. She has written orchestral works, chamber music and choral works. Her piece Pirin for Solo Viola was composed in 2000. A duet by Russian Alexander Tcherepnin (1899–1977) will conclude the first part of the concert.
Following intermission will be a premiere performance of brand new music commissioned by ZilliacusPerssonRaitinen from Swedish composer Madeleine Isaksson, who lives and works in France. To conclude, we will hear Tchaikovsky’s String Quartet No. 1 (he wrote three), lauded among other reasons for the gorgeous folk melody featured in the andante movement.
In partnership with ZPR String Trio.
