Rossini & Mellnäs

Students of the RSPO Orchestra Academy play music by Gioacchino Rossini and Arne Mellnäs.

Since 2016, the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra (RSPO) offers one year of training on site at Konserthuset Stockholm. The RSPO Orchestra Academy aims to give participating musicians heightened knowledge and understanding of the profession by giving them the possibility to work with – and alongside – one of Europe’s leading symphony orchestras.

The musicians receive individual tuition on their instrument by tutors that are predominantly leaders and principals of the orchestra. In addition, extensive chamber music playing is a vital part of the course, leading to public concerts as well – as in in this livestream from our beautiful Grünewald Hall: two duos by Rossini and Mellnäs.

Rossini is of course famous for his operas, but his duetto in three movements for cello and double bass from 1824 is an exciting rarity in his work list. The deep strings produce rich colours and the music is at the same time virtuoso, for instance in the finale. Swedish composer Arne Mellnäs (1933–2002) wrote a handful of ”rendez vouz” pieces: meetings between two instruments. We hear the refined Rendez-vous 2 for flute and percussion, composed in 1989.
