20:00 In Flames (Sweden)
An influential and prolific Swedish heavy metal group, In Flames helped to establish the modern melodic death metal scene and ensuing metalcore scenes of the early aughts. With neo-classical guitar solos and innovative song arrangements, the group progressed from underground death metal to metal music innovator alongside contemporaries like Dark Tranquillity and At the Gates. Emerging in the mid-'90s, the band hit their stride in 2002 with the release of their more alternative metal-leaning sixth studio effort, Reroute to Remain. Subsequent offerings such as A Sense of Purpose (2008), Siren Charms (2014), and I, The Mask (2019) continued to finetune the formula, drawing both commercial and critical acclaim, and earning the band multiple Swedish Grammy Awards. In Flames has influenced many bands. The band has been especially influential to metalcore, with bands such as Darkest Hour, As I Lay Dying, and Still Remains naming them as a source of inspiration. They have also influenced a number of subsequent melodic death metal bands, including Insomnium, Omnium Gatherum, and Blood Stain Child.

19:00 Rudolf Buchbinder (Austria)
A pianist noted for his taste and precise technique, Rudolf Buchbinder has been particularly identified with Austro-Germanic Classical and Romantic composers, especially since his survey of the complete Haydn piano sonatas for Teldec in the 1970s. Of his later efforts, his recording of the Brahms concertos with Nikolaus Harnoncourt won remarkably high praise upon its release in 2000. In recital, he plays a great deal of 20th century music, but his discography has been devoted almost exclusively to older works. At the Vienna Academy of Music, Buchbinder studied with Bruno Seidlhofer. In 1965, before he'd turned 20, he toured North and South America, and the following year he won a special prize at the Van Cliburn Competition (although he failed to take first, second, or third place). This significantly raised Buchbinder's profile and soon he was touring with the Vienna Philharmonic. He spent the following years as a touring soloist in recital and with orchestras in Europe and the United States. In 1975, he toured the U.S. and Japan with the Vienna Symphony Orchestra, Vienna's "other" orchestra, and continued to serve as the group's drawing card on tours through the 1990s. He recorded all of the Mozart piano concertos with that orchestra, doubling as conductor. Meanwhile, Buchbinder has also taught piano at the Basel Academy of Music. Concert dates for the 2010-2011 season included stops in Dresden, Madrid, Milano, and Paris. Releases include a DVD of Mozart piano concertos (2006) and CDs of Brahms piano concertos and Beethoven piano concertos. In Moscow, Rudolf Buchbinder will perform works by Ludwig Beethoven.
