“12 concerts in 12 days” is the tagline of Copenhagen Summer Festival, which began on Sunday July 29, 2012. On the programme is Edition·S composer Rune Glerup.
Copenhagen Summer Festival is an annual festival founded in 1969 and has for more than forty years focused on presenting classical chamber music played by young upcoming talents. The concept consists of engaging highly profiled artists side by side with the stars of tomorrow and aims at developing the classical music scene by presenting young Danish and international classical music talents and prizewinners. The festival focuses on giving young talents a boost in the beginning of their careers and the chance to meet and gain mutual inspiration and experience. It is also about creating role models and delivering inspiring musical experiences to local as well as an international audience visiting Copenhagen.
The festival takes place in the last week of July and the first week of August with daily concerts in 'Charlottenborgs Festsal' at Kongens Nytorv.
Friday August 3, 2012 at 4.30 pm the pianist Neel Teilmann is performing Rune Glerup’s Sonata in Seven Movements (2011). Glerup originally composed the work with Teilmann in mind and it was premiered at her debut concert when she graduated from The Royal Danish Academy of Music this spring.
The performance is a part of a concert by young pianists, which include the two prizewinners from the Steinway Competition Lea Han at 15 years old and Peter Guang at 16 years old.
