In this new program, the Hexagon Ensemble pay homage to two near-forgotten composers Ernst Pauer and Ludwig Thuille and combine their works with that of the well-known master composer Johannes Brahms. Pauer and Thuille were hugely popular within their own times. And, once looking at their dusted-off manuscripts, we realize that their music deserves to be heard today as well.
The members of the Hexagon Ensemble have a strong affinity with the Russian repertoire. This resulted in the acclaimed CD “The Russian Connection”. More recently – in 2014, 2015 and 2017 – the Hexagon Ensemble toured in the Russian Federation, including the Republic of Bashkortostan. This program consists of works by Ippolitov-Ivanov, Rimsky-Korsakov, Rachmaninoff and Mussorgsky.
The members of the Hexagon Ensemble always look for cooperation with others. In this program, the Hexagon Ensemble is expanded with five string players in a surprising classical/romantic program, in which well known repertoire is combined with a selection of lesser known works that clearly should be better known. Balakirev, Rheinberger, Bruch and Mozart.
