Late Summer Festival 2020 Program

August 17.
Beethoven & Schubert meet Rachel Yatzkan- Opening Concert
20.00 – 21.45 · Helligåndskirken

Beethoven’s first string quartet and Schubert’s “Death and the Girl” encircle the premiere of Danish / Israeli Rachel Yatzkan’s “Tuf” for violin and viola. Two of the quartet’s repertoire’s classic highlights, Beethoven’s youthful op.18 no.1, and Schubert’s late masterpiece “Death and the Girl” are set against the premiere of Danish-Israeli Rachel Yatzkan’s violin and violin duo, inspired by the Faroe Islands. The title “Tuf” describes the thin layer of volcanic ash that is so characteristic of Faroese nature.

Musical wildlife – Free concert
17.00 – 18.00 · Vestjysk Bank

A concert where animals and fabulous creatures of the world are emerging … Various birds and animals can be heard by the baroque composer Biber, while Telemann takes us on Gulliver’s Travels for Lilliputians and huge giant horses … So different composers like Edvard Grieg and Isang Yun produce both charmingly a little bird and Arnold Schoenberg’s snoring soldiers are awakened by all the sounds of the animals at the farm…

Music towards the night sky
21.00 – 22.00 · Lyngvig Kirke

The intimate church, Lyngvig Kirke, is filled with string tones, created for the space, from the early Middle Ages to our own times… Here, bridges from the very old music such as Guillaume de Machaut from the 1300s – which are in many ways astonishingly modern – to contemporary Violeta Dinescu and Sunleif Rasmussen, both deeply connected to their country’s folk and nature.

August 23. (Extra concert)
Three female composers – and Schubert’s “Der Tod und das Mädchen”
8pm – 10pm · Koncertkirken, Blågårdsplads in Copenhagen

It’s definitely no coincidence that Koncertkirken at Blågårdsplats in Copenhagen is the venue for Late Summer Festival 2020’s extra concert … With its location in the middle of the capital’s most mixed and colorful area, this location is the physical mirror image of this year’s program considerations.
A mix of classic and new compositions, folk music and nature depictions which will confront great classics like Schubert and Beethoven.
Not only do we bring classical music all the way to the West Coast – we also bring Late Summer Festival Hvide Sande to the heart of Copenhagen.

Rachel Yatzkan: Duo for violin og bratsch, “Tuf”. Made for LSF 2020 with support by Danish composer association.
Fanny Hensel: from Strygekvartet in Es-Dur: Romanze og Allegro molto vivace
