Enjoy the playful spirit of Carion at it's best in this delightful one-hour program. All time favorites like Ligeti's powerful Six Bagatelles are complimented with tuneful stage and film music by Shostakovich - Tahiti Trot, Romance from Gadly, Galop from Limpid Stream and of course the famous Waltz No. 2 from Suite for Variety orchestra. Stravinski's playful Suite No. 2 will surprise you with theatrical stage interpretations and humor, but nothing will top the mephistophelian virtuosity of Liszt's Grande Etude de Paganini arranged specially for Carion.

No chairs. No music stands, nothing. The way Carion fills the stage with musical and emotional content is something remarkable -

General newspaper

CARION'S fresh approach to chamber music has brought acclaimed performances in Europe's most prestigious festivals such as Rheingau Festival, Kissinger Sommer, Beethovenfest Bonn, Bergen Festival and Louisiana Festival as well as in the Far East. CARION has released 5 highly critically acclaimed CDs - including stellar reviews from Gramophone and BBC magazine, awards from Danish radio and best classical album of 2015 on iTunes. But nothing compares to their trend setting music videos on Youtube that continue generating views totaling close to a million now. The Ligeti performancealone has over 300 000.

The near future will bring a new recording featuring works by Mozart and Hindemith as well as most notable performances ie Zurich Tonhalle (Switzerland) and continued work on expanding the woodwind genre.

A major project will be a very special commissioned work under the common theme - "30 years of Baltic way" in 2019 by 3 Nordic composers (Britt Bystrom, Anders Nordentoft and Andris Dzenītis) in collaboration with German playwright Jochen Sandig. Together the artists will create a completely new type of concerto and unique performance for CARION with symphony orchestra incorporating elements of drama, light performance and cultural happening.

About the repertoire

Carion presents a varied and interesting repertoire. The ensemble is well founded in the established wind quintet works, but has received most favorable critique for their interpretation of Carl Nielsen, French composers likeJean Françaix and especially the Six Bagatelles by György Ligeti. Carion has worked with several composers, most notably with Morten Skovgård Danielsen, and can also present a unique range of arrangements by their own horn player, David MAP Palmquist.
