Emmanuel Tjeknavorian's father came to Finland to surprise his son,
Second Prize, 18.000 euros: Emmanuel Tjeknavorian (Austria). He also got a 3.000 euro award for the best performance of the Sibelius Violin Concerto. Conductor Loris Tjeknavorian flew to Finland from Dubai just a few hours before his son's final round performance to surprise him. He wasn't going to shock his son by sitting in his assigned seat in the third row, so he listened to the Sibelius Concerto in the lobby.

Kommentit
  • Celestan hiljaisia voimasointeja

    Celestan hiljaisia voimasointeja

    Yhdysvaltojen länsirannikoilla toimiva säveltäjä-pianisti Michael Jon Fink (s. 1954) rakentaa usein teoksissaan hiljaisia ja rauhallisia sointimaisemia. Uusin säveltäjän musiikkiin keskittyvä julkaisu rakentuu unenomaisen tunnelman ja pehmeiden soivuuksien ympärille. Fink on ensimmäisen kerran levyttänyt musiikkia soolocelestalle jo 80-luvun alussa.

  • Kuin kaksi marjaa

    Kuin kaksi marjaa

    Amy Beach (1867–1944), Clara Schumann (1819–1896) ja Ethel Smyth (1858–1944) olivat muusikko-säveltäjiä, joiden elämäntarinoista löytyy yhteisiä nimittäjiä. Kaikki tulivat perheistä, joissa heidän musiikkiharrastustaan ja myöhemmin myös muusikon uraansa kannustettiin.

    Hartmannin jämäkät jousikvartetot

    Karl Amadeus Hartmannin (1905–1963) persoonallinen sävelkieli oli kallellaan kohti Wienin toisen koulukunnan ilmaisua, mutta seisoi kuitenkin tukevasti omilla jaloillaan.
