Wiener Kammersymphonie & Anika Vavic
Mozart, Dvorák and Pelzl on the concert programme as renowned string quintet teams up with renowned pianist
Carefully selected works by Mozart, Dvorák and Pelzl create the foundation upon which the Wiener Kammersymphonie and pianist Anika Vavic build a rich canvas of timbres and sonic palettes. Highly recommended.
The String Quintet Wiener Kammersymphonie (WKS) is composed of highly talented musicians based in Vienna. The group brings to its’ audiences a vast musical repertoire from classics to 19th century to contemporary compositions, often performing works by (unjustly) forgotten andoverlooked composers,bringing out the very best of the Ensemble members.
The WKS was founded in March 2006 in the“Year of Mozart” and made its outstandingly successful debut with a series of concerts in Spain that met with both public and critical acclaim describing the group as the best performers of a long seasonentirely dedicated to Mozart.
From that moment onthe WKS performed troughEurope (Spain, France, UK, Poland, Netherlands, Danemark, very oftenfollowing a new invitation) and Latin America (Brazil, Argentina, Chile,Colombia, Peru, Uruguay, Panama). Future performances include further Latin America and European engagements, always developing the special symphonical/opera/ concertorepertoire "revisitated" in the chamber music version for StringQuintet.
The Viennese pianist Anika Vavic, a native of Belgrade, is passionate about discovering the inconsistencies and ambiguities of the scores she illuminates at the piano, powerfully yet sensitively. She always strives to live up to the creed of her teacher and mentor, the immortal cellist Mstislav Rostropovich.
Anika Vavic works regularly with conductors such as Valery Gergiev, Paavo Järvi and Hannu Lintu, Jun Märkl, Jukka-Pekka Saraste, Stefan Blunier, Mirga Grazinyte-Tyla, Kirill Karabits, Andres Orozco-Estrada, Markus Poschner, Yutaka Sado and Enrico Calesso. Kristjan Järvi and Jorma Panula are further musical partners from recent years.
During the 2021/22 season, Anika Vavic gives her debut with the Bamberg Symphony Orchestra under Jakub Hrusa, playing Rodion Shchedrin's Piano Concerto No. 4, and returns to Taipei to the National Symphony Orchestra for Shostakovich's Piano Concerto No. 2, but also to Den Haag, where she joins the Residentie Orkest under Jun Märkl to perform Rachmaninov's Piano Concerto No. 2. She pays homage to the centenary of Alexander Scriabin's death at the Imagodei Festival, performing his Mysterium, attempting to replicate his "mission", the vision of the merging of all senses, in a combination of puppet theatre and dance.
She also returns to the Zagreb Philharmonic and the Südwestdeutsche Philharmonie in Konstanz, where she performs Prokofiev's Piano Concerto No. 3; furthermore, she performs the Piano Concerto by the Liszt student Hans Bronsart with the Staatskapelle Weima
