Sid Hille’s third string quartet ‘Quatuor no. 3 – Equilibrium’ had its first performance last week. In three concerts around the Helsinki area the Sid Hille Camerata presented their fresh and dynamic take on chamber music. Additional to the premier of ‘Equilibrium’ two movements of Sid’s second string quartet were performed as well as two pieces for piano and strings.
The Camerata will play one more concert this spring on May 7th at the Uusi Paviljonki in Kauniainen.
Here is a clip from the Temppeliaukio Church concert:
After the chamber music concert in Kauniainen, Sid puts his jazz hat back on and presents two exciting bands on two consecutive Saturdays in May:
– SH5, the newly-formed Sid Hille Quintet with trumpeter Verneri Pohjola, saxophonist Manuel Dunkel, Sid on piano, bassist Jori Huhtala and drummer Teppo Mäkynen, will play a ‘Tribute to the Platypus‘, compositions by Sid that had been in the repertoire of the Platypus Ensemble in the beginning of the 2000’s.
