KOA_Website_19-01

Overview

A major figure in the international musical scene for decades now, Georgian Eliso Virsaladze is regarded as one of the greatest pianists of our era. The great Sviatoslav Richter made no secret of the fact that he considered her to be an ideal interpreter of Schumann, which certainly fuels our keen anticipation of her performance of the great German Romantic composer’s Piano concerto with the Athens State Orchestra. On the podium for this evening’s concert will be the young Lithuanian conductor Izabelė Jankauskaitė, who, although starting out on her career, already has significant distinctions and performances to her credit.
