Janine Jansen, Martin Fröst, Torleif Thedéen, and Lucas Debargue
About This Event
Janine Jansen’s violin playing has been described as “so golden, so delicate, almost ethereal” (The Times), “a tantalizing dance of colours and textures” (New York Times), and “a stunning display of sustained intensity” (The Guardian).
Swedish clarinetist Martin Fröst is known for pushing musical boundaries. "Until you’ve heard Martin Fröst, you really haven’t heard the clarinet” (The Times). The New York Times describes his playing as having “a virtuosity and a musicianship unsurpassed by any clarinettist — perhaps any instrumentalist — in my memory.”
Swedish cellist Torleif Thedéen, described by the Irish Times as “musically arresting and technically commanding,” has been honoured with a Cannes Classical Award and Editor’s Choice in BBC Music Magazine.
In 2015, French pianist Lucas Debargue became the most talked-about artist of the International Tchaikovsky Competition where, despite placing fourth, his muscular and intellectual playing combined with an intensely poetic and lyrical gift for phrasing earned him the coveted Moscow Music Critics’ Award as “the pianist whose incredible gift, artistic vision and creative freedom have impressed the critics as well as the audience.”
