Melodies - Romantic Music for Violin and Guitar (2009)

Massenet, Kreisler, Handel, Schubert, Mozart, Paradis, Lalo, Bizet, Grieg, Gluck, Paganini, Satie

Chen Yi

With the romantic charm of the violin and the tender sounds of the guitar, a world of melody unfolds. There is an intimate quality to both of these instruments – their elegantly carved shapes reminiscent of the female form. When played together, their sounds compliment each other – the endless song of the violin, accompanied by the gentle strumming of a guitar is the perfect serenade, their tender duet framed by silence.

The music selected by Tina Chen Yi and Hannibal for this recital is the soundtrack for a day dream, or the twilight accompaniment for a romantic dinner. The emphasis is on Melody – beautiful, finely arched musical lines that reach beyond the pressures of everyday life and transport you, to a quiet realm of song.

Lars Hannibal

Lars Hannibal is a Danish guitarist and lute player. He began playing the guitar at the age of 15 as many others of his generation. Some years later, a recording by Andrès Segovia, playing the Gavotte from Bach`s E-Major Partita, impressed him so much, that he decided to start playing the Classical guitar. 

He studied at the music Conservatory in Arhus with Erling Moldrup when he was 21, and studied the lute from 1977-1980 with Toyohiko Satoh in The Hague. In 1980 Lars Hannibal formed Duo Concertante with violinist Kim Sjogren, together they toured 15 years in Denmark, Germany, France, Spain and UK, giving more than a thousand concerts. As something new at the time they developed a concert form, where information, anecdotes and humor were an integrated part, easening up the concert form at the time. Many established Danish composers wrote works for Duo Concertante during this period. 

Lars is also the managing director of his own record company, Our Recordings. He and Michala Petri have together and individually made albums for Our Recordings. This has included recording albums with various Chinese artists, thus building bridges between China's and Europe's music culture.

In 2004 Lars Hannibal started a project with Chinese Musicians in various formations, under the mutual name Dialogue: East Meets West. As part of this he was appointed curator for the Danish Expo Participation in Shanghai 2010, where he brought Danish and Chinese artists together with Shanghai Symphony Orchestra in a large show often shown at CCTV. Further collaborations have included performances with Danish Actress Ghita Norby in a performance having words and music in dialogue, taking up subjects of the present day.
