"... a display of sheer artistry of a kind that must surely earn Ms Gulyak a place among the world’s great concert pianists. This was a recital of the very highest class."

Sofya Gulyak

 

“From the very first notes of the Gershwin Concerto Pascal Rogé was totally, physically absorbed in the music … he remained poised over the flurry of fingers and ivories like an adrenalized cat studying a fishbowl, mapping strategy”

Pascal Rogé

 

"A young and brilliant pianist with an impeccable technical reliability and a reading charged with the most deeply rooted musical tradition. It is not only technique, but rather judgment, and a tempo that doesn't seek the brightness of velocity, but the tranquillity of profoundness".

Ishay Shaer

 

“Sivan Silver and Gil Garburg's playing was close to perfection: beautifully toned, expressive and transparent, with the utmost care for details and yet with structure and great momentum. Not less exciting was the encore which yet again demonstrated their world class.”

“Weithaas plays with vigour and power, als well as a willingness to stop and smell the flowers along the way. Her playing is lush and sweet-toned.”

Antje Weithaas

 

"It is absolutely evident just how much joy these musicians of 4.1 experience when they perform. The ensemble 4.1 not only plays in total harmony together, but their dedication to the music and the performance is shining through every note."

"The finest Brahms playing one could hope to hear" - "These four instruments are like a breath of fresh air on the chamber music scene.

“in Dvorak’s G major Quartet, Opus 106……It was a joy to witness the visual communication the quartet displayed with each other……if I had to single out one movement for praise, it would be the slow Adagio, in which the quartet’s glowing tone filled the entire gallery. The exciting finale was delivered with great panache. What a great start to the season.”

Piatti Quartet

 

"The sound quality of this disc is simply stunning: crisp, clear, almost razor-sharp in its realistic presentation of the string sound, and the equally crisp playing of Quartetto di Venezia makes it a pleasure to hear."

"The Martha Müller Concert Hall in state of emergency: with the American violinist and composer Mark O’Connor, Camerata Bern celebrated a dazzling closing of its 49th season...Camerata-concertmistress Antje Weithaas has sat down with the cellist and seems to wonder, when the last time was that Bern had applauded four encores."

"A very vivid, distinctive and already legendary pianist"

Nick van Bloss

 

"A splendid performance guaranteed with the Berlinskaya-Ancelle duo which, by the virtue of their unified playing, is reflected by an irresistible interpretation marked by a wonderful sense of freshness and relief."

“These four musicians form a brilliant unit. They work together like a well-oiled machine, making music with a single, big beating heart.”

"What a wealth of colours this orchestra produces when led by a masterful conductor!” (Het Gelders Orkest)

A festival that brings Schubert back to life

A festival that brings Schubert back to life

For five full days, the spirit of Franz Schubert could be felt throughout The Hague. The Viennese composer’s chamber music was the common thread running through the Classical Now Festival. Among the festival’s highlights was the reconstruction of a musical soiree organised by Schubert in late March 1828 in memory of Beethoven. It proved to be a long, beautiful evening in the Nieuwe Kerk.

New to Squire Artists: Gioele Muglialdo & Movies in Concert

cinemia in concertoAs an eclectic and versatile musician, Gioele Muglialdo has mastered a repertoire ranging from all forms of classical music to musical, film scores, jazz and pop music.

Quartetto di Venezia & Giorgio Cini Foundation

Quartetto Di Venezia CiniIn collaboration with the Quartetto di Venezia and Asolo Musica, the Giorgio Cini Foundation has organised performances of the complete string quartets of Ludwig van Beethoven in six public concerts in 2016: three in the first semester (23 April, 21 May and 25 June) and three in the second (17 September, 22 October and 16 November). The aim is to offer audiences an exceptional artistic experience in the new auditorium on the Island of San Giorgio Maggiore, created by the stunning conversion of the Squero, a former boatyard rebuilt on the island during the historic restoration in the 1950s.
