The Norwegian violinist Vilde Frang may only be thirty years of age but she already has an impressive international career behind her - begun in public at the age of 12, under Mariss Jansons. Since then she has collaborated with the biggest orchestras and the most prestigious conductors. But it is for a recital that we are welcoming her back, in the company of the Serbian pianist Aleksandar Madzar. They have put together an extremely varied programme, from Brahms to Bartók by way of Albéniz, which showcases a vast range of atmospheres and musical colour whilst further enhanced by the musical complicity between these two highly enthusiastic, yet sensitive artists.
