Don’t miss the opportunity to hear tomorrow’s classical music stars today. Rising Stars is a unique and forward-looking collaboration between 24 of Europe’s leading concert halls, all members of the European Concert Hall Organisation (ECHO). A handful of young musicians and ensembles from various countries are selected each year and given the opportunity to tour the concert halls and perform before international audiences. Experience shows that those who are selected as Rising Stars also have internationally successful careers.
One of this year’s young stars is Scottish guitarist Sean Shibe, who was nominated to Rising Stars by Barbican in London. At his visit to Konserthuset, he performs music by British-American Freya Waley-Cohen and a new piece by British composer Thomas Adès, who was featured at Konserthuset’s international Composer Festival in 2009.
We also hear music by Francis Poulenc and Federic Mompou. Mompou was born in Barcelona but studied at the conservatory in Paris, and was influenced by Erik Satie and French Impressionism.
