Schumann's stories and Schubert's Arpeggione

Schubert was the only top composer who wrote for the arpeggione, a 19th-century hybrid between a guitar and a cello that fell out of use. His Arpeggione Sonata is an all-time favourite of both cellists and audiences. Two other favourites, Franck’s Sonata and Schumann’s ‘folk style’ pieces, complete this programme that will attract any cello enthusiast on March 3 in the Muziekgebouw.

Soltani's Melodic Journey

Austrian-born Kian Soltani comes from a family of Persian musicians. That background can be heard in his choice to include Persian Folk Songs by Reza Vali. Just as Bartók used folk music from the Balkan as inspiration, the American/Iranian Vali uses the centuries-old Persian musical traditions for his inspiration. In his five pieces, Schumann doesn’t refer directly to folk music but his wish to tell intense and impressive stories.
