Dear friends of music,
On February 1st, 2020 Lisa Shklyaver and Georgy Voylochnikov performed a very interesting program for clarinet and piano. Classics such as Ludwig van Beethoven, Peter Tschaikowsky and Johannes Brahms as well as Igor Stravinsky and Alban Berg and last but not least the less well-known composer Alexander Gretschaninov were heard.
Given the biography of the two musicians, it is not surprising that the concert would be outstanding. Both have extensive stage experience, which the audience of the Musiktudio has been able to convince themselves of several times in regards to Voylochnikov, most recently at the opening of Natalia Simonenko’s current exhibition. Lisa Shklyaver performed for the first time in the Musikstudio and she lived up to her reputation, which she had gained, among other things, through numerous appearances together with Jos van Immerseel. The technical skills of the two musicians are therefore beyond question.
The focus was much more on the successful interaction between Shklyaver and Voylochnikov, which alternated in part with very successful solo performances with Tchaikovsky on the piano (which was added to the program at short notice instead of Borodin) and Stravinsky on the clarinet. Right from the start with Beethoven it became clear that the two musicians managed to harmonize their sound into one. From this basis, one of the two instruments repeatedly came to the fore and took on the leading role in the music. A successful surprise was the interpretation of the work of Alexander Gretschaninov, whose work astonishingly reminds more of older masters like Tchaikovsky in contrast to the new trends around Stravinsky and Schönberg.
An exciting concert, which was very well received by the audience!
Dear music lovers,
Georgy Voylochnikov already honored the Musikstudio with his great arts on the piano at the opening of the exhibition “A Song of Dreams” by Natalia Simonenko. Today, however, he performs together with the clarinetist Lisa Shklyaver! She too can look back on a considerable CV. One of her regulars is the legendary master of early music Jos Van Immerseel!
Together, the two musicians have prepared a beautiful program for clarinet and piano with works by I. Stravinsky, A. Borodin, J. Brahms, A. Berg and A. Gretschaninov. Look forward to a true listening pleasure!
