Finely attuned interplay between the two chamber partners creates a synergetic, complementary dialogue: Violin virtuoso Dan Zhu, one of China’s leading violinists and founder of the Etruscan Bloom Festival in Florence (2021), a passionate environmentalist who is the first violinist in history to have performed on the Antarctic continent (2013). Professor at the Paris Conservatoire since 2011 and one of the foremost interpreters of Schubert's music, Michel Dalberto is hailed as one of the leading French pianists of his generation.
Zhu’s latest project, Love&Hope, grounded in the spiritual essence of three ingenious composers whose music “shares the eternal virtue of humanity and its universal truth – love” (Dan Zhu), derives inspiration from Gandhi’s maxim “Where there’s love there’s hope”.
Zhu turned heads and ears with his feisty artistry, turbo-charged technique and fearless attitude.
Joel Luks, 2012
Two partners on an equal footing: to Dalberto's sovereign and free keyboard responds the fluid subtlety of a Dan Zhu.
Michel Le Naour, 2019
Michel Dalberto immediately brought warmth, a sense of intimacy, and that “just right” touch that turns an inert piano key into a trigger for pure magic.

Flute Quartet in D Major, K 285
Founded in 2012, Quatuor Van Kuijk has been taking the world of music by storm, enchanting critics and audiences alike. The first French ensemble to have won the prestigious 2015 Wigmore Hall String Quartet Competition, Van Kuijk were also the BBC New Generation Artists (2015–17) and joined the ECHO Rising Stars roster for the 2017/2018 season.
Having achieved such notable successes early in their career, the Quatuor are an established presence at major international venues and enjoy highly visible musical partnerships with distinguished instrumentalists. This time they have joined forces with passionate flutist Eva-Nina Kozmus, soloist at the Opera de Limoges in France and the only Slovenian laureate of the prestigious Eurovision Young Musician competition (Vienna, 2010). Irish composer Sam Perkin dedicated his composition Eva to the talented instrumentalist, whilst works by Slovenian composers written especially for Eva-Nina have been compiled in the collection Razpoloženja.
A popular genre in late 18th century, the flute quartet’s mellifluous combination of flute and strings inspired also Amy Beach, a pioneering American female composer of the late nineteenth century and a national symbol of women’s creative power.
All four players contribute to the extensive colour palette, precise blending and, where apt, the sense of fun that makes these well-judged, serious performances so vivid.
The confident and temperamental performance of the extremely talented and musical Eva-Nina Kozmus is distinguished by brilliant technique, as well as beautiful tone and cleanly articulated phrasing.

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.

Dramatic, energetic playing of clean intensity
The New York Times
An ethereal and light joy, one cannot play Beethoven’s music any better or more fulfilling than this.
They produce a dazzling palette of sounds, roaring like a full symphony or whispering at near-inaudibility.
The Washington Post
Tetzlaff Quartett brings together four acclaimed chamber musicians – the Tetzlaff siblings were joined by two musicians who pursue successful individual careers. Their few yet eagerly awaited concerts testify to the ensemble’s sterling music-making. Although uncrowned with an array of awards and prizes, the quartet ranks among some of the world’s finest chamber ensembles – impeccable technique and invigorating expressiveness culminate in sonically balanced, refined and precise performances marked by a unique interpretive freedom.
The Tetzlaff Quartett’s deeply engaged performances faithfully reflect the greatness of Beethoven’s late quartets, which blend the sheer force of music with the insightfulness of Schonberg’s first foray into absolute music; which already heralds the composer’s deviation into the domain of atonality.

From the first note, Trio con Brio exudes class … both explosive and exquisitely intimate.
Trio con Brio Copenhagen is the first chamber ensemble to have received the prestigious P2 Artists Award (2015). The trio, which plays the central role in Scandinavia’s vibrant contemporary music scene, will mark their twentieth anniversary with a series of concerts throughout Europe, USA and Asia in 2019.
There is something about the configuration of a trio, about that triangle, that somehow focuses and amplifies the special understanding that we all have as people and as musicians. It is both a freedom and a fulfilment.
Born out of an idea of the coming together of ‘musical pairs’ (two sisters – and a marital couple), the trio quickly gained a reputation for their fresh and contemporary approach to the core repertoire and an inquisitively selected programme. The trio scale musical heights with the verve their name suggests, as well as a remarkable sense of coherence, infectious zest and an overwhelming joy of music-making.
They look back on their past achievements with a rich programme: Beethoven and Shostakovich have accompanied them since the very beginning, while Nørgård dedicated some of his new pieces to the trio.
