Music at Oxford's 2019-20 Season Starts with a Bang


This season truly promises to be a wonderful collection of music and composers from all over the world. Starting off the season with gusto will be the delightful KOTTOS, the quartet who took their name after the giant from ancient Greek mythology. He was the son of Gaia, the earth, and Uranus the sky. He had 100 arms and 50 heads. An enchanting and dangerous creature which KOTTOS resembles in their playing..

The line-up consists firstly of Pernille Petersen, master of recorders in various sizes from the lowest bass to the highest sopranino. A 17 kg Russian Bayan concert accordion is wielded by Bjarke Mogensen and provides an orchestral flavor. The cello, played by Josefine Opsahl, is the foundation of the quartet, adding sounds from the avant-garde and Nordic folk music. Finally, on guitar, KOTTOS are excited to announce that they will be joined by a new member, Mikkel Egelund Nielsen, who was the 2013 winner of the London International Guitar Competition.

With their diverse programmes, KOTTOS’ electrifying and eclectic performances are not to be missed. The players’ vibrant arrangements – often of dances and folk songs by well known composers – have met with critical acclaim, and their launch album was awarded Danish Radio’s classical station’s Listeners’ Prize. 2019 has already seen the group accompanying Danish Queen Margrethe on a state visit to Argentina, and completing a successful 10-day concert tour in China.

They'll be at SJE Arts on 26 September - click here for tickets!
