To conclude the season we are looking forward to the extraordinary virtuosity of Serbian Violinist Nemanja Radulović, a dear friend to us and one of the most exciting fiddle players on the world stage. Our previous concerts with Nemanja have been veritable fireworks and highlights of the Ensemble Liaison calendar.
Our journey for this concert commences with some sublime Bach and Handel reimagined by Ensemble Liaison and Halvorsen reflecting the ornate and elegant times of the Baroque period. Prepare for a dramatic shift in gears as the folk idiom of Khachaturian’s Trio and Bartok’s Romanian Dances will get you moving. To top it off, a tour de force of virtuosic chamber music at its best in Brahms’ gypsy inspired Piano Quartet in G minor. This will be an evening of fiery collaborations so don’t miss out!
