Cello solo from Eastern Europe

In this solo recital with a focus on Eastern European music, some masterpieces of the 20th century are combined with their 'cultural roots', the regional folk songs, from whose treasure of melodies and rhythms they have drawn so richly.

The program includes excerpts from important works by Latvian composer Pieter Vasks, the Hungarians György Ligeti and Zoltan Kodaly and the Polish/Russian composer Mieczysław Weinberg, but also less well-known works such as the spectacular cello sonata by the Georgian national composer Sulkhan Tsintsadze, music by the Ukrainian composer Nikolai Kapustin and Armenian-influenced chants by Johannes Berauer.

Back to the roots: Embedded in arrangements of simple folk songs from the respective region, the deep connections between these complex pieces and their inspiration from folklore can be experienced all the more impressively.

What a furious concert evening! Peter Hudler on his cello was a fantastic tour guide through the world of Eastern European music. (Internationale Stiftung Mozarteum)
