CRESCENDO: 
Weilerstein, Biss & Young Soloists

Crescendo musicians in a grand combination of master and apprentice.



Cellist Alisa Weilerstein and pianist Jonathan Biss are Crescendo mentors in 2017. At this concert the two Americans perform with young soloists Guro Kleven Hagen, Eivind Holtsmark Ringstad and Kian Soltani, who have all already become audience favourites at the Bergen International Festival. The mentors also perform with the string quartet Opus13  under the leadership of Sonoko Miriam Welde. All of these young musicians are participants in the ambitious mentoring programme, and as such make their mark on this year’s festival



The repertoire on this occasion is a collection of late 19th century works; Schoenberg’s dramatic Verklärte Nacht (Transfigured Night), alongside the unusual scoring of Arensky’s String Quartet for two cellos and closing with Dvořák’s Quintet, which has characteristics borrowed from Czech folk music.
