I’m really looking forward to playing tomorrow in Aalborg/Denmark in this spectacular concert hall! Together with my colleagues from the Hamburger Bläserquintett I will play Tchaikovsky’s #rococovariations in my own arrangement. Cellists, if you want to play the arrangement you can get the sheet music from Sikorski Musikverlag.
A world premiere of a work by the British composer Edward Cowie is also on the program. He wrote a fascinating solo piece for me that refers to the prelude of the first solo suite for cello by Johann-Sebastian Bach. I play Bach first, then Cowie.
And in the program there is much more wonderful music for cello and wind quintet and for wind quintet.
Many thanks to Hamburger Bläserquintett, Edward Cowie, music agent Oliver Quast and Aalborg Kammermusikforening for the inspiring collaboration!
