INTERMISSIONS


SONORO STRING QUARTET

DANIEL GOLDIN, VIOLIN
MARTHA-PIL NEUMER, VIOLIN
TUVA ODLAND, VIOLA
HEDDA AADLAND, CELLO


Through this evening’s program we will be hearing some captivating, characteristic music. Music from different traditions and cultures, each written as a

representative of a respite, an intermission. How can Norwegian mountains and fjords be compared to the tangos danced in the streets of Argentina? Folksy tunes combined with classical traditions. The program will take us from Grieg’s romantic sound landscape in his first string quartet, and further forward through the history of music; we will meet a playful Britten, a rivalry Sæverud, a sentimental and seducing Piazzolla and one of the most exciting composers of our time, Caroline Shaw and her “Entr`acte”, written in 2011.

Biographies


The SONORO STRING QUARTET was founded in 2019, and consists of Daniel Goldin and Martha-Pil Neumer (violin), Tuva Odland (viola) and Hedda Aadland (cello). They are all


students at Barratt Due Institute of Music, where they receive chamber music lessons from Kari Ravnan and Geir-Inge Lotsberg, the first violinist of the Oslo String Quartet.

The quartet is part of the “Young Quartet Series”, which a talent program hosted by Oslo Quartet Series. They are the first group to be engaged in the program three years in a row. As members of the young quartet series, they receive concert experience and masterclasses with world-renowned quartets. Previously, the quartet has played for members of the Vision String quartet, Juilliard String Quartet, Skampa Quartet, as well as the three major Norwegian quartets; Vertavo, Engegård and Oslo String Quartet.

Sonoro has also been engaged in several chamber music festivals in Norway, where they have given both formal and informal concerts. The quartet participated in Sandefjord during Fjord Classics 2019, and was also a part of the Lofoten International Chamber Music Festival the same summer. In January 2020 they participated as a YAGA-ensemble during Glogerfestspillene, where they held a recital, and performed the fierce Shostakovich string octet together with Oslo String Quartet. The following summer Sonoro played the «Up and Coming» concert at Horten Chamber Music Festival, and arranged their own mini-tour in Lofoten. The quartet was invited to Trondheim to take part in the international chamber music academy, taking place in September 2020. This enabled the quartet to work with both the Vertavo Quartet and Quator van Kujik, and perform Brahms string quintet no.2 in the final concert with violist Jennifer Stumm.

In October 2020, the Sonoro String Quartet participated in the Midgard Competition, and won both the chamber music class as well as the Midgard Prize. This resulted in several engagements, including Norsjø chamber music festival in April 2021. They were also invited to Bergen by KODE, to record a concert in Harald Sæveruds home, Siljustøl. In April 2021 the quartet also took part in the chamber music program “ECMA”, and played, virtually, for both Johannes Meissl in Vienna, and Minna Pensola in Helsinki. Sonoro has previously also been part of a jazz project at Victoria scene in Oslo, collaborating with Norway’s foremost jazz players.
