New Artist - Alexander Gadjiev


We are pleased to welcome Alexander Gadjiev as a new artist in our roster. The young pianist is a prize-winner of major competitions (including 2nd prize Chopin Competition and special prize "Krystian Zimerman Prize for the performance of a Chopin sonata" in Warsaw 2021).

Therefore it is not surprising that his concert on 15.05.22 at the Chopin Society in Hanover was also met with great enthusiasm by the audience. The critic Okka Mallek attests: "The finest dynamic nuances, a pronounced creative will and powerful virtuosity are united in this eminently gifted young pianist".

On 18.05, Gadjiev will celebrate his graduation with Sergei Prokofiev's Concerto for Piano and Orchestra No. 3 in C major, op. 26, at the Berlin Konzerthaus as part of the Hochschule für Musik Hanns Eisler's graduate concert. Please check for tickets:

Concerto Köln and Julia Lezhneva at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam

On April 30, Concerto Köln and Julia Lezhneva were guests at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam.

Under the title "The Baroque Virtuoso" Concerto Köln performed thematically finely tuned orchestral works ranging from Vivaldi's pupil Johan Georg Pisendel, Georg Friedrich Händel, Jan Dismas Zelenka, Johann Adolf Hasse to Antonio Vivaldi himself. The instrumental soloists were Mayumi Hirasaki and Emilio Percan.

Julia Lezhneva performed Vivaldi's brilliant mottet "In furrore iustissimae irae" as well as arias from Hasse's opera IRENE - a true rarity.
The complete concert of the NTR ZaterdagMatinee was recorded by NPO Radio 4 and can be listened to here:

The Dutch press also found that Julia Lezhneva and Concerto Köln are a well-rehearsed team and that their joint performances are an expression of a quasi "organic" bond, speaking of "chemistry of the greatest beauty and expressiveness": "Almost like an instrumentalist, Lezhneva blended into the orchestra with her almost veiled, dark timbre in the lower registers and her sparkling, radiant high notes. She sang both the slow and fast parts with virtuosity and flawlessness, and everything was in the spirit of the music."

Philippe Jaroussky receives the Musikfest Bremen 2022 Award!

Philippe Jaroussky receives the prize of the Musikfest Bremen 2022!

With this prize, the festival honours, among others, soloists "who have set independent accents in the international music world through their outstanding artistic work and have decisively shaped the profile of the Musikfest." (https://www.musikfest-bremen.de/news/artikel/philippe-jaroussky-erhaelt-den-musikfest-preis-2022/News/detail, retrieved 02.05.2022)

In his seven appearances at the Musikfest Bremen, the countertenor convinced the jury: "His bell-clear, intonation-clean voice fascinates with a sensual timbre and he continuously places every form of virtuosity in the service of a touching intensity of expression. He always looks beneath the surface of the music and it is in the ability to authenticate situations and figures with each aria that he shows his mastery."
