The strings are among themselves in Kian Soltani's concert with the Amsterdam Sinfonietta. And the Austrian shooting star of Persian descent uses the velvety accompaniment of the Dutch chamber orchestra to intonate solo songs with his Stradivarius cello: first largely in high register in Joseph Haydn's catchy yet technically demanding D major concerto, then in romantic songs by Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy and Franz Schubert. The program is framed by one of Bach's son Carl Philipp Emanuel's Berlin symphonies and Mendelssohn's orchestrally conceived last string quartet.
The concert is part of the focus point "Ideal Ensembles".
