Old friends in musical reunion.

Cellist Alisa Weilerstein and pianist Jonathan Biss have been friends since their early twenties, yet have rarely had the opportunity to perform together.

As new mentors in the Crescendo programme at the 2017 Bergen International Festival they will have the chance to renew their friendship, and will perform with the young soloists and chamber musicians at several concerts.

In this evening's concert in Håkonshallen they perform two works by Schumann. Between these Alisa Weilerstein and Opus13 perform one of Boccherini's most famous works, his Quintet in E major.

The concert closes with Norwegian violinist Guro Kleven Hagen joining Weilerstein and Biss for Beethoven's 'Archduke' piano Trio, dedicated to Archduke Rudolph of Austria, the youngest child of Leopold II, Holy Roman emperor.
