Tarrodi, Bronsart, Peyron, Maier-Rontgen

Chamber music by Swedish women composers from the 18th to the 21st century including Ingeborg von Bronsart, Amanda Maier-Rontgen and award-winning 37-year-old Andrea Tarrodi.

Chamber music by Swedish women composers from the 18th to the 21st century including Ingeborg von Bronsart, Amanda Maier-Röntgen & the award-winning 37 year old Andrea Tarrodi. In today's varied programme, Hillevi Martinpelto sings Ingeborg von Bronsart's setting of Heinrich Heine in "Die Loreley". Tarrodi's "Empíreo" was inspired by Isaac Grünewald´s ceiling painting in the Stockholm Concert Hall, the venue of the concert. From the Medieval Latin, empyreus is the place in the highest heaven or outermost heavenly sphere of ancient and medieval cosmology, which was often thought to contain or be composed of the element of fire. To close the series, the premiere of Amanda Maier-Röntgen's Piano Trio. Unlike her violin sonata & concerto, the trio seems never to have received a public performance in her lifetime. It wasn't until 2016 that her descendants in Amsterdam found the scores among her surviving papers, so the trio can now be performed publicly for the first time.
