Michala Petri  

recorder

Michala Petri (recorder) started her formal education at age 11 at Staatliche Hochschule für Musik und Theater in Hannover, Germany, with Professor Ferdinand Conrad. Since then she has performed at major festivals and in concert halls around the world. She has worked with among others Gidon Kremer, Joshua Bell, James Galway, Keith Jarrett, Christopher Hogwood, and Claudio Abbado. Since 1992 Michala Petri has been in a duo with Danish guitarist and lute player Lars Hannibal, with whom she also performs worldwide. In 2013 she also formed a duo with harpsichordist Mahan Esfahani. Michala Petri’s repertoire spans from Early Baroque to Contemporary music, and her vivid interest in expanding the expressive possibilities of her instrument has made her an inspiration for many of today’s composers. Michael Petri’s many recordings have received much recognition, among others four Grammy nominations and three ECHO KLASSIK AWARDS. Michala Petri received the prestigious Léonie Sonning Music Prize in 2000, and was awarded the 1st rank of Knight of the Dannebrog in 2011. In September 2012 Michala Petri was appointed Honorary Professor at the Royal Danish Academy of Music.

Double Triple Koppel
"The Concerto for Mezzo Saxophone, Cello, and Harp has some very stunning moments. The cello tends to recede into the background, but the harp makes the orchestral fabric very interesting. The quiet part of the first movement’s coda is utterly captivating; the sax mostly takes the jazzy lead and the orchestra adds deftly scored sighs, but it’s that harp, that harp! Indescribable! I could live without the final flourishes, but this movement on its own would make a fine showpiece."

Double Triple Koppel
"This is music of remarkable creativity and power, a welcome respite from all the slick, historically informed, and bloodless performances/recordings of the older classics that seem to be produced by the truckload nowadays. Highly recommended."

ANDERS KOPPEL: Double Triple Koppel
"The way Koppel combines instruments is truly unusual and extremely well handled. Even after repeated listening I am surprised to realize which instruments are creating the sounds and how well he blurs the lines between even such disparate voices as the recorder and the saxophone. Well worth investigating for yourself."

Double Triple Koppel
"…fantastic combination of Michala Petri’s delicate recorder and Benjamin Koppel’s fruit and smoke jazz-coloured saxophone. This addition to a growing discography is superbly recorded and presented, and is another of those accessible and rewarding programmes of new music which should encourage more of us to cast our nets ever wider."
