Don’t hesitate too long as places are limited!
We are looking forward to a great evening around a big table.
Nina Ulli studied under Robert Zimansky and Barbara Doll and performs regularly at home and abroad as a soloist, orchestral player, in opera productions and as a chamber musician. Alongside the classical repertoire, Nina focuses on new music, stage music, theatre and improvisation.
In addition to her intense daily interaction with classical music, Nina enjoys exploring music outside the concert hall, for example in the theatre, shows or the circus. Nina sees connection between music, words and other art forms, as a bridge to the soul of her audience.
Nina also teaches a violin class at the MKZ (Musikschule Konservatorium Zürich). Her classes not only introduce children to the violin and classical music, but encourage them to cross musical boundaries: to teach them to speak their own musical language, whilst laying a solid foundation in violin playing. Passing on her love of music is important to Nina, and she always finds it a pleasure to see children opening their hearts to music.
Duo Gehweiler / Cvirn
In order to bring the repertoire for this special pairing closer to the public, the Guitarist Aljaž Cvirn and the cellist Isabel Gehweiler have been playing together as a Duo since 2016. Both musicians have won numerous competitions and triumphed together at the Paolo Ruminelli Competition in 2017. The interesting combination of the two instruments creates a magical and special intimacy. Although few pieces are written for this specific pairing, some pieces have been arranged for them, including the Arpeggione Sonate by Franz Schubert.
The Duo recorded their new CD 'Sonatas for Violoncello and Guitar' in 2017.
Isabel Gehweiler will play some of the bows from the Exhibition.
Top-class Gipsy Swing from Zürich. The Gadjolinos's repertoire is very varied: from swing, through to waltz, Gypsy bossa, and from ballads to boléro, all in the style of Django Reinhardt and Stéphane Grappelli. With the Gadjolinos will celebrate the end of the Exhibition with one last drink, before the makers go back to their benches and the musicians go off to make more music.
