In recent years, Århus Sinfonietta has had a special focus on commissions for major solo concerts written by composers from different traditions and stages of experience. The first concert will be with the award-winning cellist and composer Josefine Opsahl. For the cello concert 'Hands' for Århus Sinfonietta+, Josefine Opsahl will explore the cello concert as a genre, illuminate and sharpen awareness of the aural, visual, symbolic, and thematic potential of the genre, cello, soloist, and orchestra respectively. The Conductor at the concert will be Holly Hyun Choe, and the premiere will be at SPOT Festival 2023 in May.
