The least important are not forbidden to dream of great things, and even modestly to aim at them, according to the measure of their abilities.

Three composers - three musical works - three young, talented performers. This time, the audience of the Solti Hall can hear an instrumental arrangement that differs slightly from the traditional violin-cello-piano setup yet it is still classic; in addition to two of the most well-known clarinet trios of the 19th century, the program also features the "night music" composed by renowned composer-conductor-clarinetist Jörg Widmann in 1998. ▪ Although the artists of the trio are still in their 30s, they have already performed with the most renowned musicians and orchestras in the world, having taken the stage from the Tonhalle in Zurich to Carnegie Hall. The two Spanish musicians have gained the attention of the music world by winning several competitions: Juan Pérez Floristán won the Paloma O'Shea International Piano Competition in Santander and the Steinway Competition in Berlin in 2015, Pablo Barragan finished on the podium at the 2012 ARD International Music Competition. Kian Soltani, who is of Persian origin but was born in Austria, has already participated - despite his young age- in numerous recordings, working with artists such as Daniel and Michael Barenboin, Lahav Shani and Renaud Capuçon. The cellist was a resident artist at the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in 2019.



The concert is followed by CODA – which is an informal conversation with the performers.
