The breathtaking quality of the tone colours and phrasing of all the musicians creates a rare intensity.
The violinist Noëlle-Anne Darbellay lives on Lake Murten and forms the Ensemble Orion with Matthias Müller (violin) and René Camacaro (cello). Together they perform throughout Europe, North America and Asia and we are all the more delighted to finally welcome them to the Schlosskirche.
The programme includes two of the rarely performed string trios for two violins and violoncello in C and F major from Luigi Boccherini's Opus 34, four songs by Franz Schubert and works by the composers Daniel Glaus and Jean-Luc Darbellay, all played on period instruments with a concert pitch of 430 Hz.
In her performances, Noëlle-Anne Darbellay fascinates her audience when she simultaneously speaks, sings and plays in a virtuoso manner and impresses with the credibility of her interpretations: she is never concerned with pure self-expression, but rather with precisely filling out the "character" that she portrays in the various performances. In doing so, she repeatedly transcends the boundaries of seeing and hearing in surprising ways.
