About the programme

For the first time in exactly 50 years, CAMERATA BERN is playing in Japan. What to bring from Switzerland? A musical greeting, of course! In particular, music that was written for CAMERATA BERN. Commissioned compositions such as Gabrielle Brunner's finely articulated Szene II (2022) based on a poem by Ingeborg Bachmann. The Hungarian-Swiss composer Sándor Veress wrote for the still-young CAMERATA BERN as early as 1966. His Musica Concertante is a highly virtuosic concerto for the collective and is thus characteristic of the ensemble. 

It is also typical of CAMERATA BERN to combine such new works with more traditional ones: for example, Kodály's Dances of Marosszék arranged by Veress, which illuminate the depths of the Hungarian soul. Great emotions, too, in Bartók's Romanian Folk Dances: miniatures of melancholy and a blazing zest for life. Artistic Partner Patricia Kopatchinskaja can be heard as a soloist in Mendelssohn's classically filigreed Violin Concerto in D minor. A youthful work? Always exciting from a prodigy!
