20:00 Hiroko Inoue (Japan)
Hiroko Inoue is a dazzling representative of the next generation of classical performers in the 21st century, a talented musician who gives recitals throughout the world. Born in the city of Osaka (Japan), she studied at the Kyoto University of the Arts before graduating with distinction from the Moscow State Tchaikovsky Conservatoire in piano (class of Professor Naum Shtarkman) and organ (class of Professor Alexei Parshin) as well as completing a postgraduate study as an organist and pianist. She furthered her professional skills at the Prince Claus Conservatoire (the Netherlands), studying on early instruments under Professor Theo Jellema. Hiroko Inoue has won first prizes at Japanese piano competitions in Sakai and was a prize-winner at the III International Maria Yudina Piano Competition (St Petersburg, 2003, 1st prize). She has participated in a master-class given by Peter Plani in Moscow (2003) and Moscow International Organ Music Festivals. She has also been a prize-winner at the International Marcello Galanti Organ Competition (Italy, 2004, 3rd prize) and the Valery Kikta International Organ Competition (Moscow, 2005, 1st prize). Since 2006 Hiroko Inoue has been a soloist and organist of the Kaliningrad Regional Philharmonic. She has prepared several fundamental programmes for solo organ, among them monograph concerts of works by Johann Sebastian Bach and French organ music. Moreover, the organist regularly appears with the Chamber Orchestra of the Kaliningrad Regional Philharmonic as well as together with other musicians.

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 Beethoven and Brahms.
