Cancelled: Symphony in Chamber Music Format

This concert is cancelled due to illness.

Croatian Dora Pejacevic (1885–1923) composed her first piano trio in 1902, and when she wrote the second one in C major eight years later, she had grown from a promising young artist into a mature composer. This late-Romantic, lyrical music offers a broad spectrum of atmospheres and emotions.

Is it possible to pack a symphony by Shostakovich into a conveniently pocket-sized format? Viktor Derevianko has done just that with the fifteenth symphony from 1971 – Shostakovich’s distinctive last symphony, which references, among other things, Rossini’s William Tell and the “fate” theme from Wagner’s the Ring of the Nibelung (the composer was working during a hospital stay; he did not have many years left).

The power and melodic density of an orchestra cannot be translated for a small ensemble, but the emotional essence can be extracted and using just a few instruments, the music can be articulated in a way that places certain sections in a new light. Violinist Seohee Min, second concertmaster of the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra, leads an ensemble that also includes cello, piano and three percussionists.
