Tapiola Sinfonietta: Bach Materia

Espoo Cultural Centre, Tapiola Sinfonietta - Kulttuuriaukio 2 02100 Espoo

Ryan Bancroft, conductor
Jonian Ilias Kadesha, violin

Johann Sebastian Bach: Prelude from Partita no. 3 in E major BWV 1006
Esa-Pekka Salonen: Fog
Anders Hillborg: Bach Materia 
Maurice Ravel: Ma mère l’oye, ballet music

Esa-Pekka Salonen and Anders Hillborg draw inspiration from Bach in their new works. Salonen’s Fog starts off with Bach’s Prelude in E major for solo violin, while Hillborg’s work, where soloist Jonian Ilias Kadesha is invited to improvise, is rooted in Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No. 3. Ravel’s delicate Ma mère l’oye is usually performed as a five-movement orchestral suite, but the complete ballet music performed in this programme showcases a world of fairy tales in all its richness. A programme rooted in the Bach’s music and Ravel’s fairy-tale world is conducted by Ryan Bancroft, the new Artist in Association of the Tapiola Sinfonietta.

Pre-Concert Talk by Kimmo Korhonen (in Finnish), Tapiola Hall 6.15-6.35 pm.

Meet the Artists after the concert, Tapiola Hall. Arranged by the Friends of Sinfonietta Society.
