Amsterdam Sinfonietta Kamermuziek

The second day of the festival starts with a chamber music concert in the Zeeuwse Concertzaal in Middelburg. Musicians from Amsterdam Sinfonietta play works by Ravel and Mozart.

Ever since he was a young composer, Mozart used two violas as a rich middle voice in his chamber music. It is therefore no wonder that he assigned rewarding solo tasks to the first viola in his String Quintet. With the cello, it is the actual counterpart of the first violin. This results in a layered, incredibly rich sound. At the beginning of the twentieth century, Ravel wrote his Sonata in memory of Debussy. Critics describe this work for violin and cello as a devilish virtuoso full of crystal-clear coolness, impressive harmonies and fiery diphthongs, alternated with deep tranquility.
