Faust overture, Op. 46

Cello Concerto in A minor, Arpeggione
Robert Schumann:
Symphony No. 4 in D minor, Op. 120

Franz Schubert loved to explore unknown territory: A new instrument came on the market during his lifetime, half violoncello, half guitar, which immediately inspired him to compose the work known today as the “Arpeggione Sonata”. The arpeggione can be wonderfully replaced by a cello in this sonata, and the piano part has been arranged for orchestra by the cellist and composer Antonio Tusa – Franz Schubert would probably be delighted that a masterpiece has been added to the cello concerto literature in this way. Russian cellist Anastasia Kobekina, whose playing has been praised for its “ravishing elegance” (Der Tagesspiegel), together with the “ensemble reflektor” and conductor Holly Hyun Choe, invites you to discover the special version of this work at the SHMF. In addition to Robert Schumann’s Fourth Symphony, the concert will feature another treasure: a piece by the Mecklenburg composer Emilie Mayer (1812-1883), who was famous throughout Europe in her day but is now unjustly known only to a few.
