International Classics: Ilya Gringolts and Aura Go

September 19, 2023 @ 7:30 pm - 8:45 pm

Watch as the violin virtuoso and piano prodigy join forces.

Feted for his effortless renditions of the otherwise impossible – from Paganini and Locatelli to Brett Dean – Ilya’s performances and recordings have established him as one of the quintessential violin virtuosi of our time. He has performed as soloist with the world’s leading orchestras, including a recent collaboration with the Australian Chamber Orchestra.

Pianist Aura Go joins Ilya for the first time since collaborating at the 2016 Kuhmo Chamber Music Festival in Finland. Their shared passion for contemporary music unites them here in the Australian premiere of modern master Wolfgang Rihm’s Phantom und Eskapade, dedicated to Anne-Sophie Mutter.

Rihm’s invocation of the fantastical alludes to the Schumann sonata and its preoccupations with imagination and myth. The Mozart sonata will unveil the crystalline sounds of Ilya’s Stradivarius violin.
