The career of Emmanuel Tjeknavorian, the young violinist from Vienna, has indeed taken off. It started with a prize in the Jean Sibelius Violin Competition of 2015. The European Concert Hall Organisation chose him for their Rising Stars series in the 2017/2018 season. Emmanuel Tjeknavorian’s phenomenal talent, his deeply interiorised musicality, his sterling technique, combined with intelligence, wit and ease make him a truly exceptional musician.
Emmanuel Tjeknavorian is accompanied by pianist Maximilian Kromer, who he has long cooperated with. Their recital is all about friendship: in 1853 Robert Schumann, Albert Dietrich and Johannes Brahms collaborated in composing the FAE Sonata, “in Erwartung der Ankunft des verehrten und geliebten Freundes” (“in expectation of the arrival of the revered and beloved friend”) – the violin virtuoso Joseph Joachim. When the sonata was first performed in the Schumann home, Clara Schumann sat at the piano. Her work is also included in the recital: the three Romances op. 22, also dedicated to Joachim; likewise, the programme comprises Joachim’s arrangements of Brahm’s Hungarian Dances for violin. The second part of the evening will be devoted to two French master composers who were also connected through music and friendship.
