Rising Stars with accordiion

With Portuguese accordion player João Barradas.

Don’t miss the opportunity to hear tomorrow’s classical music stars today. In a unique and forward-looking partnership between 21 of Europe’s leading concert halls, which belong to the European Concert Hall Organisation (ECHO), six young musicians and ensembles from various countries are selected each year and given the opportunity to tour all of the concert halls and perform before an international audience.

Experience shows that those who are selected as Rising Stars also have internationally successful careers. Each year, Konserthuset Stockholm features these ECHO Rising Stars in a world-class chamber music festival, with the short and sweet title: Rising Stars.

Accordion player João Barradas – nominated by the Gulbenkian Foundation in Lisbon, Casa da Música Porto and the Philharmonie Luxembourg – already has several albums behind him and a repertoire spanning across jazz and contemporary compositions to famous classical pieces. We will hear music by Keith Jarrett and a new piece by French composer Yann Robin. Barradas has arranged Bach’s Passacaglia and Fugue in C Minor for organ.
