Working with talented young musicians is a top priority for violinist Lisa Batiashvili. Thus, our Artist in Residence is particularly looking forward to this concert with the scholars of the Karajan Academy, during which she will appear as soloist and leader. The programme includes Antonín Dvořák’s charming Serenade for Winds and Peter Tchaikovsky’s elegant Souvenir de Florence. The Georgian composer Giya Kancheli strikes melancholy tones in Chiaroscuro, a work for violin and chamber orchestra that ideally displays Lisa Batiashvili’s expressive artistry.
