“When opera takes an erotic turn, there’s always a cello on hand!” (Siegfried Palm)

There is hardly any other instrument in the chamber orchestra that can reflect human emotions, feelings and moods with such intensity as the cello. If we pay close attention to the music in opera’s greatest love scenes – no matter whether it’s a moment of drama or an internal monologue – there’s always a cello involved. The cello accompanies the performers’ pleadings; it introduces them, supports them, dances around them or signals their close. It can convey an extremely broad, multi-facetted range of expressions. Up to six cellos together! The cellists – the Hagens (father and daughter), father and son Leopold and Bartolomey – take us into the world of great opera with magnificent arrangements from: Verdi’s La forza del destino, Don Carlos and William Tell; Bizet’s Pearl Fishers; Rossini’s Barber of Seville; Wagner’s Valkyrie and Lohengrin, and many more besides.
