Chamber music matinée 4 CELLSO

Sun, 23. February 2025 | 11:15 UhrOrchesterhaus Kriens

So far and yet so close. The cellists of the Luzerner Sinfonieorchester will take you on a sound journey around the globe. When eight cellos become one, a kaleidoscope of sounds is created in which the boundaries between near and far become blurred. The familiar sounds enchantingly different and the unfamiliar seductively familiar.

CELLSO’s program offers the audience music from all over the world: from Mozart, who traveled constantly as a boy under his father’s supervision, to the “Bachianas Brasileiras” by Heitor Villa-Lobos, who expressed his admiration for Johann Sebastian Bach with Brazilian fire, to Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite, most of which was composed on his journey through the USA.

Home is not a place, home is a feeling. The “Neiges” by Finnish composer Kaija Saariaho (1952-2023) run like a veil of sound through the familiar parts of the program in various instrumentations, echoing the longing of the Parisian by choice for the light autumnal snow flurries in her homeland. Like little snowflakes, these pieces dance through the program and make the harmony even more audible through their contrast.

There is magic in every beginning. The cellists of the Luzerner Sinfonieorchester cordially invite you to their first program and the beginning of a journey together.
