Which musicians were ahead of their time

Music that was often ahead of its time

Because both composers are known for being ahead of their time due to their wealth of ideas and the novel music they created from it. But neither of them always had the desired success with the audience at the time, which preferred to hear the familiar.

The audience at k1, however, was completely enthusiastic and for some listeners one or the other piece was something new because it was seldom played. The Violoncello Suite No. 6 in D major by J. S. Bach is one of the more well-known works of the evening because the suite requires a high level of virtuosity with which a musician can present himself in the best possible way to a demanding audience.

The only 22-year-old cellist Andrei Ionita was literally sweating on the forehead of the seven movements - because the suite is also a great physical challenge - and the features of the audience were incredulous and happy. You can't get any more Bach, that was the pure rendering of an essence. Diana Ketler and Christian Ihle Hadland performed amazing things about the twists and turns and musical ideas on the grand piano; an enjoyable, slightly diabolical, brisk journey through Mozart's spiritual world.

Razvan Popovici (viola) Thomas Gould (violin), Bernhard Hedenborg (cello), Andrei Ionita (cello) and Davide Vittore (double bass) presented a completely different Mozart, brusque, bold and relatively short, without the usual playings and the usual wealth of variations. in front of the audience. Otherwise the work "Adagio and Fugue in C minor" is usually performed in a quartet, here you heard it not with two violins, but with two cellos and a double bass, which enormously reinforced the dark character of the piece from the start. After a short break, Thomas Gould and Razvan Popovicis performed the "Six Inventions for Violin and Viola" based on the "Two-Part Inventions" by J. S. Bach and they were a real musical treat whose taste made you want more and more Bach.

The end of the concert was dedicated to Mozart, whose piano quartet was presented in G minor. The musicians played their way into an intoxicating amusement, which in the third movement »Rondo. Allegro moderato «reached its climax, when the audience, drunk with happiness, fell into a real ecstasy with the musicians. No encore. But what else should you have played at such a high point?
