Dmitri Shostakovich: Sonata for Cello and Piano in D minor, Op. 40
Only the most daring, top-level virtuosi who also happen to be extraordinarily astute musicians would tackle such a demanding program as this one – and Daniel Müller-Schott and Simon Trpčeski are such musicians. They are artists at the peak of their creative powers, conquering audiences with performances of breathtaking scope. As a powerful duo they are able to realize all the ideas they have
about what a great concert should be: it must be full of challenges, demand both great virtuosity and a broad range of artistic perspectives, and at its core be great music, regardless of its origin or popularity.
This is exactly what awaits us at this Festival Maribor concert. From the classical 19th century sonatas through the powerful music of Dmitri Shostakovich to the concentrated music of Anton Webern, this is a programme that immerses us in the richness, diversity and intensity of chamber music for cello and piano. It’s not about superficially liking something; this is music that really draws us into a musical universe in which external reality seems to completely disappear for a while. Such an escape into a vast fantasy world certainly suits us.
