On May 21 at 9pm (Berlin time), Carolin Widmann performs J.S. Bach A minor Sonata in the great hall of the Berlin Konzerthaus. The artists declares: "In this particular phase of history, it was a big moment of motivation, inspiration and consolation to me when the Konzerthaus Berlin asked me to do a video of J. S. Bach’s a minor sonata for solo violin in the big hall of the Konzerthaus. I really hope that we musicians can practice our profession and passion again soon. For me, recording this Bach gave me strength and hope in dark times."

"It was with this well-known work that Russian conductor Stanislav Kochanovsky began his masterful performance on Saturday evening as he led the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra in a crisp, delightful exploration of the tragic composer. This was the first time Kochanovsky performed here and one can only hope he’ll return again and again. His presence on the stage is electric and the relation he seems to have with the musicians is uncanny: a gesture, and the music swells, a flicker, and it rises, with controlled, precise movement and without a hair out of place."
Congratulations to Daniel Smith on his nomination for Best Conductor at the upcoming 37th Green Room Awards after 'Viaggio a Reims' with Opera Australia. Congratulations to all the other nominees and to everyone involved with this beautiful production directed by Damiano Michieletto, which has also been nominated for Best Lighting, Set and Costume Design, Best Musical Achievement for the Ensemble Cast, Best Direction and Best Production.
