Praised in the German press for her musicality, technical mastery and charisma, Ukranian-born violinist Diana Tishchenko possesses a musical imagination to match this thrilling programme.
Sofia Gubaidulina’s daredevil virtuoso showpiece Dancer On A Tightrope is paired with Ravel’s fiery Tzigane and Schubert’s famous Fantasie, And Tishchenko makes a little bit of musical history with a striking new work written specially for her by Portuguese composer Vasco Mendonça.
The title of rising star and this promising young artist go together like hand in glove, as audiences across Europe will no doubt discover throughout her appearances in the ECHO Rising Star series – a showcase for the next generation of classical stars as nominated by our partner venues across Europe.
