On Sunday, 15 September, Harriet Krijgh can be heard at the closing concert of the Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern at the Konzertkirche Neubrandenburg. Together with the NDR Radiophilharmonie Hannover and their chief conductor Andrew Manze, this year’s prizewinner in residence will play Elgar’s Cello Concerto. The concert starts at 4 pm and will be broadcast live on NDR Kultur.
Within the framework of her residency, the Dutch musician performed in more than 20 concerts at the festival. During an ‘Amsterdam weekend’, she portrayed the cultural metropolis and took the visitors on a cinematic journey to the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam. With the Radio-Symphonieorchester Wien and clarinet player Matthias Schorn, she presented a colorful program with a focus on Vienna. Chamber music also played a central role. The cellist played with festival prize winners such as Lucas & Arthur Jussen, Daniel Müller-Schott, and Martynas Levickis as well as with musical friends such as Baiba and Lauma Skride.
