Joseph Haydn, The creation, Hob. XXI:2
During one of his visits to London, Haydn was completely enchanted by Handel’s magnificent oratorios. After returning to Vienna, he joined forces with librettist Gottfried van Swieten and set about composing his first oratorio, which provides a unique description of the creation of the world in seven days. The oratorio, in which the composer also employs fascinating tone painting, such as in the introductory presentation of chaos, has been considered one of the most magnificent works of the entire music repertoire since its first performance.

Flute Quartet in D Major, K 285
Founded in 2012, Quatuor Van Kuijk has been taking the world of music by storm, enchanting critics and audiences alike. The first French ensemble to have won the prestigious 2015 Wigmore Hall String Quartet Competition, Van Kuijk were also the BBC New Generation Artists (2015–17) and joined the ECHO Rising Stars roster for the 2017/2018 season.
Having achieved such notable successes early in their career, the Quatuor are an established presence at major international venues and enjoy highly visible musical partnerships with distinguished instrumentalists. This time they have joined forces with passionate flutist Eva-Nina Kozmus, soloist at the Opera de Limoges in France and the only Slovenian laureate of the prestigious Eurovision Young Musician competition (Vienna, 2010). Irish composer Sam Perkin dedicated his composition Eva to the talented instrumentalist, whilst works by Slovenian composers written especially for Eva-Nina have been compiled in the collection Razpoloženja.
A popular genre in late 18th century, the flute quartet’s mellifluous combination of flute and strings inspired also Amy Beach, a pioneering American female composer of the late nineteenth century and a national symbol of women’s creative power.
All four players contribute to the extensive colour palette, precise blending and, where apt, the sense of fun that makes these well-judged, serious performances so vivid.
The confident and temperamental performance of the extremely talented and musical Eva-Nina Kozmus is distinguished by brilliant technique, as well as beautiful tone and cleanly articulated phrasing.

Work by a Slovenian composer, TBA
An artist of affecting humility and beautiful tone production.
A violin virtuoso of a victorious tone, with thick layers of colour, which as an entranced song flashes a plurality of events on the ground, overlooking from a kind of superior vantage point.
Violinist Dan Zhu possesses great breadth of mind and musical sensibility. His special outlook on life, art, freedom, beauty and love is reflected in his artistic maturity, complemented with technical brilliance and stylistic consistency.
Dalberto plays it with discerning sensitivity, which he complements with splendid rhythmic élan and general vitality of spirit.
A widely acclaimed artist, Michel Dalberto has been hailed as one of the leading French pianists of his generation. He is one of the foremost interpreters of Schubert's and Mozart's music and an acknowledged recording artist. He is the only living pianist to have recorded the complete piano works by Schubert.
With a stylistically diversified programme, the musicians will pay tribute to both the violinist’s native land and his new home and enrich Slovenia’s chamber repertoire by giving the Slovenian premiere of Sheng’s Fantasies.

Dramatic, energetic playing of clean intensity
The New York Times
An ethereal and light joy, one cannot play Beethoven’s music any better or more fulfilling than this.
They produce a dazzling palette of sounds, roaring like a full symphony or whispering at near-inaudibility.
The Washington Post
Tetzlaff Quartett brings together four acclaimed chamber musicians – the Tetzlaff siblings were joined by two musicians who pursue successful individual careers. Their few yet eagerly awaited concerts testify to the ensemble’s sterling music-making. Although uncrowned with an array of awards and prizes, the quartet ranks among some of the world’s finest chamber ensembles – impeccable technique and invigorating expressiveness culminate in sonically balanced, refined and precise performances marked by a unique interpretive freedom.
The Tetzlaff Quartett’s deeply engaged performances faithfully reflect the greatness of Beethoven’s late quartets, which blend the sheer force of music with the insightfulness of Schonberg’s first foray into absolute music; which already heralds the composer’s deviation into the domain of atonality.

Per Nørgård, Spell, version for violin, cello and piano (1973)
Dmitri Shostakovich, Piano Trio No 2 in E minor, Op. 67
From the first note, Trio con Brio exudes class … both explosive and exquisitely intimate.
Trio con Brio Copenhagen is the first chamber ensemble to have received the prestigious P2 Artists Award (2015). The trio, which plays the central role in Scandinavia’s vibrant contemporary music scene, will mark their twentieth anniversary with a series of concerts throughout Europe, USA and Asia in 2019.
There is something about the configuration of a trio, about that triangle, that somehow focuses and amplifies the special understanding that we all have as people and as musicians. It is both a freedom and a fulfilment.
Born out of an idea of the coming together of ‘musical pairs’ (two sisters – and a marital couple), the trio quickly gained a reputation for their fresh and contemporary approach to the core repertoire and an inquisitively selected programme. The trio scale musical heights with the verve their name suggests, as well as a remarkable sense of coherence, infectious zest and an overwhelming joy of music-making.
They look back on their past achievements with a rich programme: Beethoven and Shostakovich have accompanied them since the very beginning, while Nørgård dedicated some of his new pieces to the trio.
