LIU KOTOW welcomes German violinist Niklas Liepe and his "#The new Paganini Project" to its roster for general management.
Niklas Liepe,, has been described by the press from an early age as a „soloist in a class of his own who seems to meld with his violin and capti- vates the audience with breath-takingly brisk, spirited but also dreamy and romantic passages“ and whose „purity and clarity of his playing, ‚sweetness‘ of the violin, and its soft and emotive tones have an enchanting effect“.
He has given recitals in New York (Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center), Washington, D.C. (Kennedy Center), San Francisco, Vancouver, Detroit and in London (Wigmore Hall), Hamburg, St. Petersburg, Helsinki, Warsaw, Hong Kong, Antwerp, at the Lucerne Piano, Gilmore, Bergen, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern Festivals and at Beethoven-Haus in Bonn. Juho Pohjonen was selected by Sir András Schiff as winner of the Klavier Festival Ruhr Scholarship in 2009.
The New York Times:
‘If we needed proof that exciting new talent is in the pipeline, there was the marvelous American debut of Juho Pohjonen at [Carnegie's] Weill Recital Hall. Mr. Pohjonen offered a formidable mixed program, topped by thrilling accounts of two fiendishly difficult works by a fellow Finn, Esa-Pekka Salonen."
Juho Pohjonen performs Presto from Aleksandr Scriabin's Sonata no. 2 :
BOMSORI KIM & WARSAW PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA
Jacek KASPSZYK - conductor
Henryk Wieniawski - Violin Concerto No. 2 in D Minor, Op. 22
Dmitri Shostakovich - Violin Concerto No. 6 in A Minor, Op. 77
Recording Producers: Andrzej SASIN, Aleksandra NAGÓRKO
Premiere: 27 October 2017
This exciting collaboration marks Bomsori's recording debut, in which the fiendish virtuosity of Wieniawski’s Romantic Violin Concerto No. 2
is coupled with Shostakovich’s searingly intense Violin Concerto No. 1
in A Minor.
Although nearly 100 years apart, both concertos presented on this album had their premieres in Saint Petersburg. Saint Petersburg is also the city in which Henryk Wieniawski held the post of soloist at the Tsar’s court, as well as the birthplace of Dmitri Shostakovich and where he spent most of his life.
Winner of Gramophone’s ‘Recording of the Year 2016” award, Igor Levit manifests his position as one of the most relevant pianists of his generation – as an artist “built to last” (The Guardian).
The 2016-17 season marks Igor Levit’s debuts with the Staatskapelle Dresden (Christian Thielemann), the Bavarian State Orchestra (Kirill Petrenko) and London Symphony Orchestra (Fabio Luisi) and reunites him amongst others with the Danish National Symphony Orchestra (Sondergard), NDR Elphilharmonie Orchestra (Thomas Hengelbrock), Tonhalle Orchestra Zurich (Lionel Bringuier) and San Francisco Symphony (Fabio Luisi)
Igor Levit will be on tour in Asia with Bavarian State Orchestra and Kirill Petrenko in September 2017

The Violin's Virtuoso Zukerman and His Chamber Players Piano Quintet Recital
被誉为当代最伟大的十大小提琴家之一的平夏斯·祖克曼(Pin chas Zukerman)，曾获得21次格林美奖提名并两次获奖——1980年的“最佳室内乐演奏会”和1981年的“无乐团的乐器独奏之最佳古典乐表演”，他的音乐天才很早就让乐评人与听众叹为观止。无论是作为小提琴家、中提琴家、指挥家、音乐教育家还是室内乐演奏家，祖克曼都备受尊敬。在乐坛，他是公认的属于这个时代的大师。
这位知名的艺术家透过他的生命启发了许多年轻的音乐家，并于2002年与四位门徒组成了「祖克曼室内乐团」(Zukerman Chamber Players)。祖克曼室内乐团经常受邀至全美各地著名的音乐节演出，也曾受邀到世界各地，如伦敦的BBC逍遥音乐节 (BBC Proms)、阿姆斯特丹的大会堂、义大利的科托纳音乐节 (Cortona Festival)，以及维也纳、巴黎、米兰、布达佩斯、那不勒斯、巴塞隆纳、哥本哈根、韦尔比亚、华沙、埃里温等地演出。
