Alena Baeva, violin
Katia Skanavi, piano
Since winning an impressive selection of major international competitions in the early 2000s, Alena Baeva’s diary has been chock full of concerto performances, recitals, recordings, and chamber music projects which have taken her all over the world many times. We’re thrilled that she has made time to tour Ireland with pianist and fellow Russian, Katia Skanavi, herself amongst the forefront of young dynamic chamber musicians with a passion for discovering new music, and reinvigorating the old.
Having collaborated with such heavyweight conductors as Gergiev, Jaarvi and Menuhin, this duo have confidence and presence in spades, and with their gorgeous tonal palette and elegant discourse, they bring sense and sensuality to anything they tackle. And being the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth, their performance of the ‘Kreutzer’ Violin Sonata will be a real highlight of a programme which also includes a special Music Network commission for these extraordinary and charismatic artists.
