Horizontal Tabs

Info
In his First Cello Concerto, Camille Saint-Saëns broke with the hitherto prevailing convention to arrange concertos in three movements. He structured his work in a single movement, albeit subdivided into three sections (Allegro non troppo, Allegretto con moto, and Tempo primo). These are closely juxtaposed and arranged in cyclic form. Despite the demands on the soloist, this composition became one of the most popular pieces with the great cello virtuosi. Harriet Krijgh is not just a virtuoso but an Austrian-Dutch “rising star” who, according to Wilhelm Sinkovicz, music reviewer of the Austrian daily newspaper Die Presse, has long been “an artist of great calibre”. Since the age of five, the young cellist has nurtured an intimate relationship with her instrument from which she is able to extract velvety-soft tones in a most elegant and expressive manner. The Cello Concerto will be framed by Henri Dutilleux’s Métaboles and Robert Schumann’s Second Symphony.
