LGT Young Soloists

The LGT Young Soloists put the audience under vibrant high tension – and not just in the final piece by the Sicilian Giovanni Sollima. No wonder, since this string ensemble is made up of highly talented young musicians between the ages of 14 and 23, who show what they can do here, sometimes collectively, sometimes as soloists. It begins with Beethoven’s most famous and impressive violin sonata, which appears here in pure string garb. Alfred Schnittke’s Suite in the Old Style is a sequence of stylized baroque dances modeled on Stravinsky’s »Pulcinella«. A great romantic reverie is Bruch’s Romance for Viola and Strings. And Sollima’s »Violoncelles, vibrez« is, according to the LGT Young Soloists, »one of the coolest pieces ever written for cellos«.

Concert with intermission.

Lendvai String Trio fotografiert von Sarah Wijzenbeek

Kammermusik Plus | Lendvai String Trio

Deeply inspired by a string trio by the composer Erwin Lendvai and his special musicality, the three musicians from the Netherlands, Sweden and Great Britain named their ensemble, founded in 2004, after Hungary, which is still unknown today. One of the trio’s great passions is to (re) discover forgotten works for this particular line-up. This also includes a total of 16 string trios by the German-Dutch composer Julius Röntgen, who was among his friends with Johannes Brahms. For three years the trio devoted themselves intensively to Röntgen’s works and received international praise for their recording.

From Wednesday, July 14th at 10 a.m. you can reserve a place on the waiting list for the concert. This will be processed immediately when the general advance booking opens on November 15, 2021.

Bläserquintett Profive

Kammermusik Plus | Wind Quintet Profive

The southern German wind quintet Profive not only unites five renowned university professors in one ensemble, but thanks to this unique line-up also promises artistic top class – always paired with contagious joy in playing. The musicians move effortlessly through the epochs, present classics, for example by the wind specialist Paul Taffanel, himself probably the most important flautist of the 19th century, and surprise their audience with exciting reinterpretations of well-known works such as Maurice Ravel’s world-famous dedicatory work »Le Tombeau de Couperin« which was originally composed as a piano suite.

Kammermusik Plus | Carolin Widmann & Alexander Lonquich

There is ample evidence in the history of music that family ties can lead to extremely successful musical creation. And even nowadays, great creative moments emerge from them. The internationally renowned violinist Carolin Widmann played the world premiere of her brother Jörg Widmann’s violin concerto. Also her long-time duo partner, the award-winning pianist Alexander Lonquich comes from a family of musicians. In this concert, the two artists will jointly present a work by his father, the church musician Heinz Martin Lonquich, who in turn was a student of the great Bernd Alois Zimmermann.

This Kammermusik Plus concert will also take place as part of the Heidelberger Frühling 2022.

Kammermusik Plus | Trio Isimsiz

The Guildhall School of Music & Drama is known for having a good nose for exceptional musical talent. And so it is not surprising that the Isimsiz trio (Turkish for »nameless«) also originated there. The three young musicians, who come from Spain, Bulgaria and England, drew attention to themselves with a 2nd prize at the International Joseph Haydn Chamber Music Competition in Vienna in 2017. In the same year her debut album with works by Brahms, Takemitsu and Beethoven was released, which was celebrated by the press for its well thought-out interpretations and technical mastery.

Viviane Hagner fotografiert vonTimm Kölln

Kammermusik Plus | Viviane Hagner & Till Fellner

With Viviane Hagner and Till Fellner, two top-class musicians have found each other who merge as a chamber music duo to form a subtle, musical unit. The program, which was originally supposed to see numerous performances in 2020, is also celebrating last year’s big jubilee. Hagner and Fellner celebrate Ludwig van Beethoven. Sonata No. 8, from his early creative phase, and Sonata No. 10, his last work of this genre, form a perfect framework for Schubert’s famous “Arpeggione” sonata and the Four Pieces by Anton Webern – short, expressive sound studies that show all the nuances of violin and piano.

Unfortunately, the Corona Ordinance of the State of Baden-Württemberg dated November 24, 2021, only allows a 50% occupancy of the concert hall in the currently valid Alert Level II, applying the 2G-Plus rule.
We are therefore forced to automatically refund all tickets already purchased and to restart the advance sale for 50% of the seats from Thu 25 November at 10 am by phone and in our webshop.
We look forward to receiving your new ticket bookings by phone at +49-6221-5840044 (Mon-Fri 10am-6pm) and in our webshop.
Tickets that have already been purchased will be automatically cancelled. They will lose their validity and the ticket price will be refunded to the buyer’s account within the next few days.

The Quatuor Ébène is one of the most complex and exciting quartets of our time. The four French musicians move freely, almost daring, through genres and styles, whether classical, jazz or pop. As part of »Chamber Music Plus« they are now presenting works by Haydn, Schumann and Janácek. The program, spanning three epochs, shows the many facets of the string quartet: from Joseph Haydn’s tireless urge to bring “his supreme discipline” to perfection, to Robert Schumann’s return to precisely those classical roots to Leoš Janácek’s highly expressive response to Leo Tolstoy’s » Kreutzer Sonata «, which seems to break the boundaries of absolute music.

“With beautifully clear, natural sound…The Lendvai Trio once more acquit themselves with flying colours, their infectious enthusiasm consistently communicated.” Gramophone, 2014

In 2020, the Lendvai String Trio celebrates its 15th anniversary season performing regularly at major venues throughout Europe such as Wigmore Hall in London and Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw. The trio has recorded extensively and to great acclaim, including the complete string trios by Beethoven (BBC Music Magazine’s Chamber Choice in June 2013) and Martinů, both for Stone Records. Their most recent international success is the completion of a three-year project uncovering, performing and recording all sixteen string trios by Dutch composer Julius Röntgen for Champs Hill Records.

“Röntgen’s inexhaustible fecundity of melody, musical charm and compositional craftsmanship combine in the most delightful manner…delivered with impeccable musicianship by the wonderful Lendvai Trio.” 
Gramophone, 2016

In 2011 the trio was awarded the prestigious Kersjes Ensemble Prize in Holland, as well as being selected for the Concertgebouw’s Young Artist Series in Amsterdam. In 2005 they were selected for the Holland Music Sessions ‘New Masters on Tour’, resulting in a series of concerts across Romania, Bulgaria, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland and the Netherlands.

The trio regularly performs at festivals in the UK, Germany, Italy, France, Switzerland, Austria and Sweden and their concerts and recordings are broadcast by Dutch Radio 4, Swedish Radio P2 and BBC Radio 3.

The trio enjoys and gets inspiration from regular collaborations with other artists. Recent highlights have included concerts with oboists Alexei Ogrintchouk and Nicholas Daniel, and pianists Paolo Giacometti, Tom Poster, Charles Owen, Alasdair Beatson and Martin Sturfält. As well as regularly commissioning new works, the Lendvai String Trio is also keen to uncover and revive forgotten works for the genre.

Alongside the trio Nadia is concertmaster of the Dutch Radio Philharmonic Orchestra, Ylvali is guest principal at the Royal Swedish Opera and Marie solo cellist of the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra.
