Carolin Widmann - live from Berlin

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.

ENRICO ONOFRI

The CD Into Nature conducted and played by Maestro Enrico Onofri and the Imaginarium Ensemble, is CD of the month on Amadeus Magazine and won the prestigoius Diapason d'Or of the french magazine:

"The splendid result, often brilliant, is devoid of blatant effects that overshadow the rest. It rather recalls the harmony of some rural landscapes used by Giorgione as backdrop of his paintings, where the thousand voices of the Nature coexist enigmatically in a suspended and dreamlike dimension, out of a specific time."
-Massimo Rolando Zegna, Amadeus Magazine-

Stanislav Kochanovsky

Successful debut for Stanislav Kochanovsky with the Israel Philharmonic:

"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."
