20:00 David Oistrakh String Quartet (Russia)
The David Oistrakh String Quartet will perform works by Franck and Brahms. It features four of today’s most outstanding Russian musicians, all soloists in their own right, united in their artistry and their passion for the art of quartet playing. In 2012 the family of the legendary 20th century violinist honoured the quartet with his name. The David Oistrakh Quartet frequently performs across Europe, Asia, South America and at many of the most recognised Russian venues, including all of the country’s famous philharmonics halls. After their impressive debuts in Japan, Hong Kong, at the Prague Spring Festival, the Quartet Festival at the Gulbenkian Foundation in Lisbon and at the Philharmonie de Paris, which immediately resulted in two re-invitations, one for the “Ivry Gitlis & friends” 2019 which will see the quartet perform alongside Martha Agerich & Renaud Capucon and the other one for the next Bienale Quartet Festival in 2020 future engagements will bring the quartet to the Wigmore Hall in London, the Pierre Boulez Saal in Berlin, the Vienna Konzerthaus, the Enescu Festival in Bucharest, the Liszt Academy in Budapest, the Bratislava Festival, the Konzerthaus in Dortmund, the Stiftskonzerte in Austria by invitation of Rico Gulda, the Palau de la Musica in Valencia and the Auditorio de Barcelona.

19:00 Greece: Myths and Music
The concert presents melodies of the ancient Greece and an exotic tune of Persian folk music. Anna Toncheva (lyre-kifara), the soloist of the Madrigal Ensemble, is not only a splendid performer and expert in medieval instruments, she also tells captivating stories about musical eras. She founded a series of musical and educational family programmes “Word, Music, Game” and other similar projects. Being a passionate collector of old instruments, she is always happy to share her treasures with the audience. She possesses a rare skill of decyphering old tablatures, that is why her repertoire contains unique pieces of music.
