About B:Classical 2022/23 & ECHO Rising Stars: Diana Tishchenko
Diana Tishchenko: Violin
Kirill Kozlovski: Piano
Vasco Mendonça: A Box of Darkness with a Bird in its Heart
Beethoven: Violin Sonata No 9 in A major, Op 47 ‘Kreutzer’
In Diana Tishchenko, critics have discovered “a genuinely distinctive, individual voice”, praising her “beauty of tone,” and “astonishing maturity”. Solo engagements with leading European orchestras, a clutch of major international awards and a widely-acclaimed debut album in 2019, put her in the top rank of violinists to watch. This recital plays to all her strengths through Ravel’s intricate gypsy Tzigane, a striking new work by Portugese composer Vasco Mendonça and the many contrasts of Beethoven’s ‘Kreutzer’ sonata which gives both instruments a chance to shine.
In our Sunday morning Rising Stars recitals, we’ll hear from a group of outstanding artists, hand-picked by the directors of Europe’s most prestigious concert halls. Each musician embarks on an international concert tour of halls in the ECHO (European Concert Hall Organisation) network and B:Music venues Symphony Hall and Town Hall have been there since the series began in 1995.
Join us in Symphony Hall’s new Jennifer Blackwell Performance Space for a delightful hour or so in the company of superb musicians, and enjoy a coffee or tea and a slice of cake into the bargain.
