The sympathetic Danish cellist won the hearts of the audience and musicians alike with his playing as well as his behaviour. After playing his solo work, he sneaked into the cello group in the orchestra unannounced to play the rest of the concert by ear. It’s hardly surprising that there was a great atmosphere!
During this concert, he will play one of the indisputable cello masterpieces, the Cello Concerto in E-minor by Edward Elgar.
The international conducting career of tonight’s guest conductor Petr Popelka is moving ahead at full speed, so it’s a great pleasure to welcome him to the Arctic Philharmonic for the first time!
