One of Kholodenko’s important musical partners is violinist Alena Baeva, who has been working with him for more than a decade. Born to a musical family in Kazakhstan, Baeva began playing the violin in early childhood before continuing her training at Moscow’s famous Conservatory. In 2003 she went to study in Paris at the personal invitation of the legendary cellist and conductor Mstislav Rostropovich. She works regularly with leading orchestras and conductors such as Valery Gergiev, Paavo Järvi and Vladimir Jurowski and has played in chamber ensembles with Martha Argerich, Yuri Bashmet, Steven Isserlis, Nikolai Lugansky, among others. She is building an enviable career, with a repertoire that includes both famous violin works and compositions by overlooked composers. At this concert, she and Vadym Kholdenko will perform works by Schubert, Schumann and Richard Strauss.


Programme:

F. Schubert: Fantasie in C major, D. 934
