Now that Arcadi Volodos is restricting his appearances to some 50 concerts a season, London can count itself fortunate to have heard the great Russian pianist in recital three times in as many years. His latest programme at the Barbican Hall focused on two composers especially close to his heart. Clara Schumann had asked the composer to transcribe the slow movement of his String Sextet no. Initially, this is Brahms at his fiercest but also least accessible, with relatively dense textures. Red meat in abundance, so to speak.

Volodos takes his listeners to the edge of the abyss

Paris Orchestra places its activities in the direct line from the French musical tradition, the 19th and 20th centuries and contemporary music. The Philharmonica Orchestra works on an education programme that empowers people in every community to engage with, and participate in, orchestral music. Piano recitals have played a central role in the artistic life of Volodos. CD recording have had great success among international critics. The cellist J. Queyras is a passionate artist, whose humble and quite unpretentious treatment of the score reflects its clear, undistorted essence. With a celebrated career encompassing five decades, Pinchas Zukerman reigns as one of today's most sought after and versatile musicians.
