“…You felt as though you’d been on a journey that transformed the material even as you revisited it…the group played with a modesty, even a reticence, that would, periodically, suddenly and beautifully explode.” – New York Times, 2014
Mooredale Concerts presents a feast of wind music, along with cello and piano, when Denmark’s highly adventurous Ensemble MidtVest makes its Canadian debut!
Young, ambitious and dedicated, the Danish ensemble is renowned for creative programming and pushing the boundaries of the traditional classical concert form. Their performance will feature seven members of their ensemble: Martin Qvist Hansen, piano; Charlotte Norholt, flute; Peter Kristein, oboe; Charles Neidich, clarinet; Yavor Petkov, bassoon; Neil Page, horn; and Jonathan Slaatto, cello.
They will play four less performed, but truly stunning works from the chamber music repertoire: Nielsen’s Fantasy for Oboe and Piano, Op. 2, Mozart’s Quintet for Piano and Winds in Eb Major, K. 452, Schubert’s Introduction and Variations on “Trockne Blumen” for Flute and Piano, D. 802, and Brahms’ Clarinet Trio in A minor, Op. 114.
Watch a 10 minute documentary about the Ensemble’s preparation to perform at Carnegie Hall February 2012. Pay particular attention to the wind players, cellist and pianist – is it these players who will perform for you in Toronto.
