With Zimmerman in Munich
On 14 December, Brad Lubman is a guest on the podium of the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks, with whom he has been collaborating for a long time. The program includes Bernd Alois Zimmermann's Sinfonie in einem Satz as well as his concerto for two pianos and orchestra, Dialoge, with the GrauSchumacher Piano Duo. Ilya Gringolts also participates as a soloist in John Adams's Violin Concerto.
The concert marks the end of the Zimmermann year 2018, when the composer would have turned 100 years old. With his Monologen for two pianos, the GrauSchumacher Piano Duo can be heard immediately following the orchestra concert, as part of the Late Night program of the concert series Musica Viva in the Munich Herkulessaal.
Gold for Stravinsky
Congratulations to Ilya Gringolts: his two-CD Stravinsky recording has been awarded a Diapason d’Or from the French music magazine Diapason. “This complete recording of Stravinsky’s violin works, the most comprehensive that has ever been released, is also one of the most imaginative and deserving,” wrote the magazine’s critic.
