This is the chance to join a very special birthday party: unfortunately, the ‘birthday boy’ himself cannot be present but his works can, since they are immortal. Ludwig van Beethoven was born 250 years ago to the day, and to mark the occasion the three young musicians have picked from among the composer’s works as well as pieces created in his honour or inspired by him: in addition to the work by Canadian Tatar Airat Ichmouratov, Máté Balogh’s composition is performed, which was made as the lead to the (unfortunately) rarely heard Brahms work. Ukrainian Vadym Kholodenko is winner of the gold medal at the 2013 Van Cliburn International Piano Competition and a powerful interpreter of Romantic piano music, while Maxim Rysanov is similarly a musician of international repute, who like his compatriot also approaches the classics of the repertoire with a personal and refreshingly original creative imagination. Their cellist partner, Dóra Kokas, has won several medals at the Budapest Pablo Casals International Cello Competition and she is a well-known, active figure on the domestic chamber music scene.
