Classical Vienna meets Slavonic modernism
Works by Lutosławski, Shostakovich and Beethoven
It is with great excitement that the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen announces a further project with Tarmo Peltokoski. This charismatic young Finn’s most recent guest appearance in June was with a programme that ranged from Mozart to Schnittke. This time he will be demonstrating a further facet of his mastery with a Beethoven symphony; core repertoire for the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen, whose recordings of the complete symphonies are celebrated across the globe. The Polish composer, Witold Lutosławski’s ›Overture for Strings‹ is a rarely performed work; a dense network of motifs whose texture is reminiscent of Bartók. It is presented in just five minutes; the particular order in which they are played suggestive of the direction the later Lutosławski will take. Dmitri Shostakovich’s 1st Cello Concerto stands together with other great works for this instrument by Schumann, Elgar and Dvorák. However, unlike these other giants, Shostakovich’s work is dominated from the outset by its rhythm but without compromising on the instrument’s vocal possibilities.
