Music in the Museum

Works by Strauss and Rossini

Description Program Artists

Opera is a luxury. This was even more true in the past than it is today – and since people invariably had an appetite for opera melodies, but not always enough cash, the business of arrangements flourished. These are an art in their own right, as can be heard in our Figaro Paraphrase. This virtuoso piece is only one of the many chamber works that were written by opera composers or that relate to opera and song in one form or another. The program will be presented by young German cellist Raphaela Gromes, who together with her chamber music partner Julian Riem, frequently showcases unusual combinations of works.
