Denis Matsuev (Russia)
18:00, 20:30. Denis Matsuev is one of those electrifying pianists often associated with finger-busting repertory. But his keyboard persona is rather perfectly balanced: its thunder and hair-raising brilliance coexist nicely with delicacy and nuance to yield an interpretive depth of a rare kind. In short, he is an artist who can bowl his audiences over with pyrotechnics one moment, then mesmerize them with poetic rapture the next. His repertory as a soloist is rich in the concertos of Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninov, and Prokofiev, and his recitals feature works by that trio as well, but also Schumann, Chopin, Scriabin, and a spate of other notables. Matsuev has appeared with the major orchestras of New York, Chicago, Pittsburgh, London, Paris, Berlin, Moscow, and St. Petersburg, and with such conductors as Gergiev, Maazel, Mehta, Masur, Temirkanov, Slatkin, and Jansons. His recordings are available on Mariinsky, RCA, and Sony. In 1998 Matsuev won the Tchaikovsky Competition, probably the most attention-grabbing springboard from which to launch one's international career.

19:00 Vadim Eilenkrig: My Favourite Things
Vadim Eilenkrig is Russian number 1 jazz trumpeter, a popular TV host and a famous powerlifter! A graduate of Maymonides State Academy in Moscow, for ten years Vadim was the lead trumpet of one of the best world’s jazz orchestras - Igor Butman’s Big Band. His first solo album, "The Shadow of Your Smile," recorded with ex-Brecker Brothers members and produced in 2009 by Igor Butman, became one of the country’s best selling albums. The album became a springboard for Vadim’s solo career. He launched a number of projects such as duets with outstanding pianists Anton Baronin and Daniel Kramer, a show with a TV and radio host and singer Timur Rodriguez, and the Vadim Eilenkrig Quintet. Vadim frequently tours Europe with solo concerts, and takes part in various musical festivals in Munich, Dusseldorf, Riga and Tallinn. In March 2016 Vadim performed at Sing Jazz festival in Signapore on the same stage with Candy Dulfer and Incognito. A few years ago a senior Russian business newspaper called Vadim «the Russian Chris Botti». However, Vadim has developed his unique, original style, inimitable sound and manner, and now, no doubt, he is one of the most recognizable and sought after Russian jazz musicians.
