Gromes - Victoria - Riem

Nowadays even elevators sing, but at the beginning of the 20th century music was so precious that neighbors would open their windows to hear someone who was simply tinkling the piano for a moment. At the time, salon music was not only played in salons, but on the streets, in front of cafes, and even in churches – and in the most unusual instrumental combinations. Today's matinee invokes the memory of such times as it brings together three instruments that otherwise rarely meet. The concert features Opus Klassik winners Raphaela Gromes, cello and Julian Riem, piano with Gewandhausorchester harpist Gabriella Victoria.
