We are delighted to announce the concert by prominent London based Slovenian violinist Lana Trotovšek and her Spanish-Catalan pianist partner. They will take on three major sonatas from the 19th- and 20th-century repertoires, plus a rediscovered work (1934) by the Slovenian late-Romantic Lucijan Marija Škerjanc.
Violinist Lana Trotovšek made her debut with the Mariinsky Theatre Orchestra under Valery Gergiev in 2012, and has since appeared with some of the world’s finest orchestras. In 2014, she toured with the Moscow Soloists and Yuri Bashmet and in 2016 she performed Prokofiev’s Violin Concerto No.1 with the London Symphony Orchestra under Gianandrea Noseda. Washington Post has described her as ‘Radiant’ and praised her ‘clean, refined tone with musical sense of phrasing and impeccable intonation’. Her schedule in 2019 includes Tchaikovsky violin concerto with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra London and an evening recital at the Wigmore Hall with Maria Canyigueral. Lana Trotovšek lives in London and is a Professor at the Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance. She plays a 1750 Pietro Antonio dalla Costa violin.
One of the leading lights among the new generation of Spanish pianists, Maria Canyigueralwill perform this season at the Wigmore Hall, Palau de la Música Catalana in Barcelona and Fundación Juan March in Madrid. She has been working with nine internationally known composers including Antón García Abril for her project ‘Avant-Guarding Mompou’ soon to be released on a CD by Audite label. After winning the Gold Medal at the Global Music Awards in California for her album with violinist Lana Trotovsek (Hedone Records, 2016), Maria has appeared in Belgium, Japan, Spain and the UK. Maria performed solo recitals at the Festival Porta Ferrada, Ibercamera, Schubertíada Vilabertran and Auditorium Girona, as well as at the Echoes Festival, St. Martin in the Fields and St John’s Smith Square, London.
