About the Concert

Patricia Kopatchinskaja loves festivals: "I especially like the fact that the audience is so enthusiastic". We have therefore organized a mini-festival for our Artist in Residence - three concert evenings in which she plays the great violin works of Classical Modernism. We will begin with the violin concertos of Stravinsky and Prokofiev: their music has many common sources, but the temperaments of the two composers were very different. While Stravinsky's music is primarily rhythmic, Prokofiev's melodies often flow freely, supported by original harmonies. Patricia Kopatchinskaja, on the other hand, seems to unite all temperaments in her playing: passionate, committed, with a lot of feeling and, above all, the greatest virtuosity and musicality, she captivates her audience.
The program is complemented by the Sonata in C major for two violins, which Prokofiev wrote for the two violinists Samuel Dushkin and Robert Soetens. Patricia Kopatchinskaja dedicates the concert to them.

Patricia Kopatchinskaja

Patricia Kopatchinskaja’s focus is to get to the heart of the music, to its meaning for us - now and here. With a combination of depth, brilliance and humour, Kopatchinskaja brings an inimitable sense of theatrics to her music. Described by The New York Times "a player of rare expressive energy and disarming informality, of whimsy and theatrical ambition", Kopatchinskaja’s distinctive approach always conveys the core of the work, whether it is with an out-of-the-box performance of a traditional violin repertoire classic or with an original staged project she presents as experimental performance dramaturge.
