Cello Biënnale

Two world premières, five cello soloists


Nov 8

A playful and energetic program with two brand new works and a real Cello Biennale classic by Martijn Padding.

Guus Janssen writes a concertino for the four cellists who were previously successful in the performance of Martijn Padding’s Biënnale GalopThe Italian cellist Francesco Dillon makes his debut at the Cello Biënnale and stars as the soloist in Silvia Borzelli’s new concerto. Asko|Schönberg adds to the conversation in the solo concertos and in Thomas Adès’ Chamber Symphony van Thomas Adès.
