Håkan Hardenberger and the Swedish Chamber Orchestra on tour

09.04.2016

Håkan Hardenberger and Uri Caine are on tour with the Swedish Chamber Orchestra as a continuation of the ‘Bach Brandenburg Project’ that started in December 2015. As part of this unique project, the Swedish Chamber Orchestra commissioned a partner composition for each of the six J.S. Bach’s Brandenburg concertos.

The first tour of this project will feature Håkan Hardenberger performing the German premiere of Steve Mackey’s trumpet concerto Triceros, which is written based on the second concerto as well as jazz pianist Uri Caine performing his composition Hamsa, inspired by the fifth concerto. The new compositions will be performed alongside the Bach under the baton of Thomas Dausgaard in Potsdam, Erfurt, Budapest, Heidelberg and Cologne.
