Maestro Vladimir Spivakov needs no introduction. A violinist of "soulful refinement and technical finesse," he appears regularly as a recitalist and orchestra soloist in all major international music capitals. Performing for over three decades, he has been one of the most acclaimed violin virtuosos of our time.
"...a refined and aristocratic artist. His playing is not only extraordinarily persuasive, even exhilarating on a purely technical level, but bespeaks a refined and probing musical mind." - The New York Times

Pianist Olga Kern launched her career by winning the Gold Medal at the Van Cliburn Piano Competition in 2001. Ever since, her vivid stage presence and extraordinary technique have captivated audiences and critics around the world.

“Kern's musicality radiates off the stage and saturates the hall, and it is joyously alive, immediately communicative, fragrantly sensual, and almost visual in its intensity. Whatever it is – call it star quality – music likes Kern the way the camera liked Garbo.” -- The Washington Post

Program: Johannes Brahms, Violin Sonata No. 3 in D Minor, op. 108 / Igor Stravinsky, ‘Suite Italienne’ and Arvo Pärt, Spiegel im Spiegel (dedicated to Vladimir Spivakov) / Cesar Franck, Sonata in A Major
