Work by a Slovenian composer, TBA
An artist of affecting humility and beautiful tone production.
A violin virtuoso of a victorious tone, with thick layers of colour, which as an entranced song flashes a plurality of events on the ground, overlooking from a kind of superior vantage point.
Violinist Dan Zhu possesses great breadth of mind and musical sensibility. His special outlook on life, art, freedom, beauty and love is reflected in his artistic maturity, complemented with technical brilliance and stylistic consistency.
Dalberto plays it with discerning sensitivity, which he complements with splendid rhythmic élan and general vitality of spirit.
A widely acclaimed artist, Michel Dalberto has been hailed as one of the leading French pianists of his generation. He is one of the foremost interpreters of Schubert's and Mozart's music and an acknowledged recording artist. He is the only living pianist to have recorded the complete piano works by Schubert.
With a stylistically diversified programme, the musicians will pay tribute to both the violinist’s native land and his new home and enrich Slovenia’s chamber repertoire by giving the Slovenian premiere of Sheng’s Fantasies.
