Monday at Last
String trio ZilliacusPerssonRaitinen meets violinist Henrik Naimark Meyers and cellist Torleif Thedéen.
Monday 29 January 2018 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.
For 30 years, cellist Torleif Thedéen has been among the top cellists in the world. He has worked with the very best as both a soloist and a chamber musician and is richly represented in recordings. Among other places, Henrik Naimark Meyers (b. 1989) has studied at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm, the Mozarteum University of Salzburg and the Hochschule für Musik Hanns Eisler (with Ulf Wallin).
The concert will begin with a duet by the highly acclaimed Finnish composer Sebastian Fagerlund, followed by another duet by Russian Sofia Gubaidulina (featured in Konserthuset’s Composer Festival in 2000). Thedéen will then present a solo piece by Norwegian Arne Nordheim (1931–2010).
After intermission, all participants will unite on stage for the concert’s oldest piece, a string quintet (with two cellos) by Russian composer Georgy Catoire (1861–1926). Unlike many of his Russian colleagues, Catoire did not pursue a Russian and nationalistic style; rather, this internationalist turned his gaze outwards: he admired Tchaikovsky, but was also inspired by Wagner, for example.
In partnership with ZPR String Trio.
