Duo Gelland Residency at University at BUffalo - Workshop and Concert

Duo Gelland Violin Duo will be in residence at the University at Buffalo from Monday, September 18 through Tuesday, September 19 for a composition workshop and concert. Additionally, Duo Gelland and UB composers will meet with the students of Buffalo String Works for a new project! Duo Gelland was founded in 1994 by the violinists Cecilia and Martin Gelland who met in the Danish Radio Symphony Orchestra and started exploring the duo repertoire together. The eminent European ensemble turned an 18th century concept into the driving force of contemporary exploration. Their passionate, profound and playful interpretations earned them the Annual German Record Critics' Award 2008, Swedish Nutida Sound 2011, Fanfare Yearbook 2001. They revive forgotten gems with historically inspired insight, and in close collaboration with composers they bring new scores to life - so far nearly 200. Duo Gelland premiered and performed duos and double concerti in Berliner Philharmonie both halls, Konzertverein Wien, Grünewaldsalen Stockholm, Tonhalle Zürich.

In a new project, they are going to collaborate with UB composers and Buffalo String Works for the premiere of a new double concerto for Duo Gelland and the Buffalo String Works student string orchestra. A special aspect of the double concerto score is that it uses graphic notation, rather than conventional staff notation. A second work will be created for the Buffalo String Works student orchestra alone. 

Duo Gelland will feature works by Arnold Schönberg, Tiffany M SkidmoreErika FörareMikael ForsmanBirgitte Alsted Zweigeigen, and  Hans-Joachim Hespos in the concert on September 19. Among them, German composer Hans-Joachim Hespos's aglaja - dem engel "katastroph" zum angedenken (2019) will be world premiere!
