It’s another return with her husband to Worthing for popular Arta Arnicane (Latvia), winner of the 2010 Sussex International Piano Competition (SIPC) and subsequent concerto appearances with Worthing Symphony Orchestra, a solo Interview Concert in 2012 and a concert together during the 2013 SIPC, when Arta was a guest juror in the competition.


It will be a second visit here for Florian Arnicans (Germany) and with him this Interview Concert showcases the cello’s distinctive, stirring and enveloping ability to sing like a human voice. If you’ve not experienced it before, this evening will unveil to you to this beautiful instrumental combination.


The cello will team up with the piano’s ability in the hands of Arta to sing back and combine, to make music to stay with you long after you’ve been at this concert. Their programme of solos and duos is subtitled with the Latin American name for song, Canción, and will be an example of Arta’s special artistry in creating imaginative and rewarding programmes.


Both will be interviewed and already Worthing audiences know and revere Arta’s powers of happy verbal communication. We’ll be hearing Florian for the first time. Married with one son, they are based in Zurich, Switzerland.


Their ‘Programme Canción’:

“The Cello Sings”

Johann Sebastian Bach - Arioso (melodious and vocal)      

Franz Schubert   - Ständchen (serenade)      

Felix Mendelssohn   - Lied ohne Worte Op.109 (Song without Words)  

Antonin Dvorak   - Melodie    

Pablo Casals   - Song of the Birds

Maurice Ravel   - Pièce en forme de Habanera (sultry Spanish dance)

Josef Suk  - Serenade


Johannes Brahms - Sonata for Cello and Piano in F major Op 99

  • Allegro vivace (quick; animated, lively)
  • Adagio affettuoso (slow; but warm-hearted and affectionately)
  • Allegro passionate (quick; passionately)
  • Allegro molto (very quick)

In 2013, Arta and Florian delighted the audience with Brahms’ first cello sonata. Here now comes the equally superb second. Brahms could play both instruments!
