5. Chamber Concert 2021: Duo Kravets-Kassung

Kölnischer Kunstverein, Hahnenstraße 6, 50667 Köln

“La lumière du sud” - The light of the south

In 2011 Lena Kravets and Tobias Kassung established their duo in the Cologne Classical Ensemble. With the rare combination of cello and guitar, they develop very individual programs and inspire audiences in numerous concerts across Germany.

In the summer of 2017 her highly acclaimed album “Lieder, Songs & Canciones” was released by KSG Exaudio with a very personal homage to singing. Russian romances and German, romantic songs by Franz Schubert and Johannes Brahms are combined with spirited Spanish canciones and jazz songs.

The current program "La lumière du sud - the light of the south" is particularly dedicated to the impressionist masters of French and Spanish music, who conjure up Mediterranean landscapes in music. In the arrangements of the duo, these soundscapes unfold their full charm and cello and guitar merge into an impressive whole. In addition to the “Siete Canciones populares Españolas” by Manuel de Falla, works by Marin Marais and Gabriel Fauré are on the program. As well as the gorgeous, virtuoso flamenco composition by Mathias Duplessy and Tobias Kassung's own “Capriccio à la lumière du sud” - a homage to tango and the light of the south.

Marin Marais (1656-1728): Variations sur les Folies d‘Espagne; Manuel de Falla (1876-1946): Siete Canciones populares Españolas; Tobias Kassung (*1977): Capriccio à la lumière du sud, op. 16; Gabriel Fauré (1845-1924): Après un rêve, op. 7; Mathias Duplessy (1972): Sonate pour guitar et violoncelle
