The sensational marimba soloist Ronni Kot Wenzell from Rio, Brazil joins Philippa Mo, violin, in a unique programme including his own arrangements of sublime Baroque masterworks from Bach’s orchestral suites and Schubert’s Ave Maria, before a magnificent display of his explosive virtuosity with Tango Jalousie and a twinning of Schubert’s sweeter L’Abeille and the unmissable and ferocious Flight of the Bumble Bee by Rimsky Korsakov like you have never heard it before.


Ronni Kot Wenzell is widely internationally active. He performs and tours in Europe, USA, Asia and South America as soloist, duo and as part of ensembles and as duo partner to the famous Chinese percussion virtuoso, prof. Li Biao. Acclaimed ...concerts have included the opening of Formula 1 in Shanghai, performances for NIKE in Los Angeles, AUDI in Germany, the opening of the National Centre for Performing Arts in China, and an invitation to perform at the closing ceremony of the Olympic Games in Beijing.

Ronni has also had a great interest in the piano since a young age. He has been pianist at the Trommen Culture House, north of Copenhagen, and also head pianist at The Royal Danish Ballet School.

Ronni has also performed as a soloist with orchestras in Denmark, Germany and Hong Kong and has participated in TV recordings for DR, TV2, TV2 ZULU, Chinese CCTV Music, CCTV7, CCTV11 and MTV. Additionally, he has participated in many CD recordings, among others a solo piano CD commissioned by The Royal Danish Ballet, a CD recording with Japanese Eriko Daimo and a CD recording in Beijing for EMI Classics.

Ronni also occasionally conducts, such as for Disney's latest Beauty and the Beast.
