Program

Chróma is a work for two solo cellos, string instruments that do not form part of the Symphonic Band’s line up. The “colour” added by this unusual combination explains the title of this piece, which consists of four movements with chromatic themes: the silver of the night, the moon and the stars, the green of nature and hope, the red of love and passion, and the yellow of light and life. The concert brings together two great cellists, Santiago Cañón and Arnau Tomàs, under the baton of Swiss conductor Isabelle Ruf-Weber. 

The other works in the programme are also by Swiss composers: a march by Trachsel; Solemnitas by Cesarini, inspired by a festival held each year in the German town of Burgdorf and using a popular tune with variations, and Waespi’s Divertimento, a piece full of contrasts, which takes us to the world of American popular music, including sounds resembling a New Orleans street procession and a traditional hoedown.
