Wow, just an amazing weekend of music making rehearsing with Bern University‘s Summer Orchestra „Sommer Ensemble“.
Bartók‘s Hungarian Sketches (originally for piano) are lesser known beautiful short movements, Jonas‘s rendition of the Arutjunjan is stirring stuff and Scheherazade has been on my wish list for a long time. What an amazing piece! Yacin Elbay is leading the orchestra for the first time and he‘s nailing the solos.
Definitely a concert worth coming to if you’re in town!
