They have only just performed in the Kosmos Kammermusik series with star cellist Kian Soltani and the cello ensemble of the Tonhalle Orchestra Zurich has already won the hearts of audiences. This season, the twelve Tonhalle cellists are back with a new programme: "Mikros" for three cellos by Anna Thorvaldsdottir seems the ideal piece for this line-up. In it, the composer once again explores the "boundaries of the melodic", as she herself says about her music, and gives the cellos a further sound space. In Edvard Grieg's "Peer Gynt" suite, the cellists then immerse themselves in the Nordic world: The good-for-nothing Peer Gynt encounters many a fantastic character on his travels. With Tchaikovsky's "Nutcracker Suite" op. 71a, the Christmas fairytale magic is then unmistakable. It begins with the world-famous melody of the ballet of the same name and leads musically through the otherwise danced dream world of little Marie and the Nutcracker, who is transformed into a prince.
