Concerto in Amber, world premiere

On the 24th of September Concerto Copenhagen will present the world premiere of Rasmussen's Concerto in Amber. The piece represents the first commission ever from the Danish period ensemble and the first addition of a contemporary piece to their baroque repertoire. The baroque strings of the ensemble will be joined by the internationally well-known Rascher saxophone quartet in a kind of concerto grosso counterposing the sound world of two different times. 
The concert, featuring mainly music by Bach, is at 8 PM in the Black Diamond concert hall at the Copenhagen harbor.
Later this year Concerto Copenhagen will present the work on tour in Germany.
