Music Network presents: Raphaela Gromes & Julian Riem
Raphaela Gromes is an exceptional young cellist who has quickly garnered a slew of rave reviews for the incredible intimacy of her playing, her musical imagination, and thrilling virtuosity. Add to this her symbiotic duets with partner Julian Riem and you’re set for a truly inspiring evening.
Winner of many international prizes, Gromes has performed extensively throughout Europe in prestigious venues like the Tonhalle Zurich, Concertgebouw Amsterdam, Konzerthaus Berlin and Konzerthaus Wien, and several composers have already dedicated cello concertos to her, including Valentin Bachmann and Mario Bürki.
A renowned soloist and award-winning pianist, Julian Riem has appeared with many of Europe’s leading orchestras. He is a passionate advocate of contemporary music and a sought-after chamber musician: in addition to his work with Raphaela Gromes, he is a member of the Munich Horn Trio and the Velit Quartet.
On this tour the duo will perform a new piece by Kevin Volans commissioned by Music Network.
