Lucerne (CH): Debut Prix Credit Suisse Jeunes Solistes – Lea Sobbe

17. August 2021

Lea Sobbe | Halldór Bjarki Arnarson

Lea Sobbe  – Blockflöte
Halldór Bjarki Arnarson  – Cembalo
Martin Reck – Electronics

Is the recorder confined solely to the realm of early music? Lea Sobbe, who was born in Trier in 1994 and is currently completing her master’s degree at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis, showed this to definitively not be the case at the 2021 Prix Credit Suisse Jeunes Solistes, winning the coveted CHF 25,000 prize for young musicians as well as the opportunity to appear at Lucerne Festival in a Debut recital. She will experiment with different types of recorders, from the Middle Ages to modern models, and explore the question of how much repetition is needed to achieve complete musical freedom, pleasure, and joy in playing. Sobbe will combine contemporary pieces with live electronics in a program of improvisations and early Baroque repertoire, which she performs with her chamber music partner on harpsichord, the Icelander Halldór Bjarki Arnarson. “Magnificent, daring, beautiful, flowing, touching,” remarked Noémi L. Robidas, jury chair of the 2021 Prix Credit Suisse Jeunes Solistes, describing her impression of Lea Sobbe’s playing and program conceptualization.
