FREE! Pre-Concert Event: Jobine Siekman - cello - Sunday 10th November, 5.45pm

Dutch cellist Jobine Siekman is quickly building her career as an exceptional chamber musician and soloist. She has won prizes both as a soloist (National Cello Competition of Cellobiennale Amsterdam 2016) and with ensembles including the Alkyona Quartet and the Chloé Trio. In 2017 she graduated from the Royal College of Music with first class honours with professor Melissa Phelps, and in the summer she graduated with her Masters of Performance degree with professor Richard Lester as the Irene Hanson Scholar supported by the RCM. She now continues to study at the RCM as the Mills Williams Junior Fellow, as well as working towards her Artist Diploma. In 2017 she performed the second Bach Suite at Wigmore Hall as part of the RCM Ligeti Sonata for solo cello
JS Bach Cello suite no 6 in D major BWV 1012

String Showcase concert. Jobine was awarded second prize in the National Competition of the foundation Young Music Talent of the Year (2011) and the Anna Shuttleworth Prize in the RCM cello competition (2016). BBC 3 has broadcasted her recording of Webern’s 2 pieces for cello and piano. Jobine is a passionate chamber musician and is a member of several successful ensembles with whom she performs regularly in the UK and the Netherlands. She participated in masterclasses with Gary Hoffman, Johannes Goritzki, Frans Helmerson, Anner Bijlsma and Jean-Guihen Queyras. The Hendrik Muller Fonds and Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds have sponsored her studies.

The lives of both Shostakovich and Ligeti were largely affected by the Soviet Union repression in the first half of 20th century. The piano trio by Shostakovich and the solo sonata by Ligeti were both written during the composers’ studies, but are both mature in style. However, even at this stage we can already hear the impact of the Soviet rule on their music. Bach used dance forms for most of the movements in his cello Suites, a tradition that would be continued by composers later, including Smetana, who used the tarantella as inspiration for the last movement of his piano trio.
