Summer Concerts: French Romanticism and Impressionism

/ 18. August 2019
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

In this Summer Concert the young cellist and international prize-winner Jonathan Algot Swensen performs with pianist Elias Holm some of the cello repertoire’s greatest works by French composers. Profound romantic feelings are awakened in Fauré and Franck, while Debussy’s cello sonata represents musical impressionism with imaginative colours and moods. The poignant cello piece by Messaien is a religious work which was composed during the Second World War in a prisoner-of-war camp and is a hymn to the eternity of Jesus.
