NEMANJA RADULOVIĆ

The festival debut of this passionate admirer of Paganini, whose bohemian appearance is well worthy of the famous violinist. His concerts are a display of exhilarating instrumental virtuosity and romantic depth.

The Strings of Autumns have witnessed a number of great violin debuts – suffice it to name Gil Shaham and Daniel Hope among the many others. This year the festival will introduce Prague for the very first time to the thirty-three-year-old Serbian virtuoso Nemanja Radulović, whose path into the great world of classical music was opened by a substitution for Maxim Venger to play Beethoven’s Violin Concerto in 2006. He has performed at Carnegie Hall, the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées in Paris, or the Berliner Philharmonie. The 2014 Victoires de la musique classique awardee and Deutsche Grammophon-exclusive artist has chosen a virtuoso repertoire of Saint-Saëns, Debussy, Chausson, and Ravel for his festival debut in the Bethlehem Chapel; he will be accompanied on the piano by Laure Favre-Kahn.

Programme:
Camille Saint-Saëns: Danse Macabre
César Franck: Sonata in A Major
Claude Debussy: Sonata
Ernest Chausson: Poème
Maurice Ravel: Tzigane
