Klavier-Rezital Pavel Kolesnikov & Samson Tsoy
The Horenstein Ensemble, founded 15 years ago by musicians of the Konzerthausorchester, has existed ever since in the rare formation of string quartet, clarinet, flute and harp. Our associate principal cellist Andreas Timm, who is one of the five founding members, describes making music together:
"In chamber music in particular, things sometimes happen spontaneously that you can't prepare for in rehearsals: As a player, you suddenly feel this tension that spontaneously arises between the audience and the performers on stage. You can explore these moments of extreme intensity even more, make a piano even more delicate, lend even greater tensioin to a pause... These are the moments when you can work magic as a chamber music ensemble.
In very different formations, from duo or trio to quintet to septet, we can offer a wide range as an ensemble - a possibility that musicians would otherwise hardly have. As a result, the audience naturally experiences particularly exciting contrasts, which are rooted both in the different music-historical epochs and in the acoustic diversity of the instruments.
After several years, we have „Introduction et Allegro“ by Maurice Ravel on the program again; for us as an ensemble of seven musicians, this was the „musical initial spark"! Be it that we now have more life experience or more musical experience - each time we work together we bring a different basic feeling with us and discover new details even in familiar pieces. Arthur Honegger's Sonatina for violin and cello, a work that is not often heard, also has a very special charm with its virtuoso, multi-faceted basic character. That's why I'm particularly looking forward to discovering something new here.“
