211031 David Christophersen (Anissegos & Wiesmaier)

Cambridge Concert Artists

Antonis Anissegos – piano & Maria Magdalena Wiesmaier - cello

Sunday 31st October

7:30 pm

This programme was originally scheduled for a concert in 2020 at West Road Concert Hall in celebration of Beethoven’s 250th anniversary. Because for the pandemic the concert has had to be rescheduled to WRCH’s 2021-22 season. A compelling demonstration of the tenderness, passion and integrity of Beethoven’s music by two outstanding artists. The programme offers haunting stillness with Kurtag’s solo pieces.

Antonis Anissegos studied at the Thessaloniki State Conservatory, Budapest’s Ference Liszt Academy, in Vienna, Cologne and Berlin, winning Berlin’s Neuköllner Opera Competition and the Berlin Senate’s Composition Award, his many compositions being performed widely by Ensemble Piandaemonium, Ensemble Cornucopia, Ensemble Mosaik, Ensemble Modern, Ensemble DissonArt, the State Orchestra of Thessaloniki, The Colour Orchestra of Athens, Magdeburg Philharmonie, Wurttemburg Philharmonie , Brasov Philharmonic CO to name few. He has toured widely in Europe, the Far East and N. America and appeared in over 40 recordings, his playing being described as ‘eloquent… outstanding’ by the Neue Zeitschrift für Musik.

Maria Magdalena Wiesmaier studied cello at Augsburg’s Mozart Konservatorium, Weimar’s Franz Liszt Academy and in London with Christopher Bunting and Raphael Wallfisch. Her broadcasts and performances throughout Germany and Europe have included appearances at the Vienna Burgtheater, Berlin’s Konzerthaus, Frankfurt’s Alte Oper and numerous Festivals. ‘Faultlessly secure, beautiful… expressive’ - Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung.
