Salzburg soloists destined for Beall
The Salzburg Chamber Soloists, led by violinist Lavard Skou Larsen, will perform works by Mozart, Dvorak, and Janacek Sunday, February 5 at 3 pm as part of the ChamberMusic@Beall series. Tickets are on sale online and through the Hult Center and UO ticket offices.
Soprano Karine Polverelli joins the group for Britten’s Les Illuminations, a setting of poems by Arthur Rimbaud.
Perpetuating the legacy of Mozart, the ensemble is a regular performer in its home city as well as a powerful force in frequent world tours. The 16-piece orchestra was founded in 1991 by the Brazilian-born Skou-Larsen and a handful of colleagues with the aim performing orchestral chamber music with the freedom of soloists. Their inspiration was Sandor Végh, the Hungarian violinist and conductor who was a colleague of many of the members.
Polverelli studied at the Boston Conservatory and the Manhattan School of Music. Based in Europe, she has performed in Brussels with guitarist Denis Sung-Hô at the Flagey Festival and with pianist David Miller at the Midis-Minimes Festival.
