“Faust and Melnikov seemed to perform with one nervous system, and their ability to manipulate these infinitesimal silences elevated their performance from great to exquisite.” —The Boston Globe
Paganini Competition winner Isabelle Faust returns to Hong Kong with pianist Alexander Melnikov to unveil the interlacing harmonic patterns in Beethoven’s 10 sonatas for violin and piano. Presented in three concerts, these lifetime musical testimonies offer the audience a glance through all the ups and downs in Beethoven’s life since he established fame at the young age of 27.
As part of HKU MUSE’s 10th Anniversary celebration, the complete cycle by Faust and Melnikov, described by the BBC Music Magazine as “the most stimulating and fascinating accounts of the Beethoven violin sonatas in many years”, is a musical experience not to be missed.
