Songs for Bach in the Absence of Words med violinist Elmira Darvarova

EARUNIT præsenterer violinisten Elmira Dararova

Songs for Bach in the Absence of Words

Komponisterne på koncertprogrammet er inspireret eller påvirket af J.S.Bach's musik, og en del af værkerne er navngivet med identiske titler som hos Bach. "Prelude, Fugue, Chaconne", Bach er et reference punkt for rigtig mange komponister gennem tiden, og selvom vi ikke finder nogen værker af Bach på koncertprogrammet, vil vi kunne mærke hans tilstedeværelse i værkerne. Værkerne af Badinski, Soukhovetski, Stephen Brown, Carsten Bo Eriksen (aka My Beautiful Decay 1973) er skrevet specielt til violinisten Elmira Darvarova. Koncertprogrammet er meget varieret, og spænder lige fra musik af den canadiske komponist Stephen Brown, den amerikanske Norman Zocher, til latin-amerikanske Piazzolla. Europæiske komponister, og kvindelige komponister. Og ikke mindst en verdenspræmiere af den danske komponist Carsten Bo Eriksen (alias My Beautiful Decay 1973)

GRAMMY®-nominated recording artist, and a concert violinist since the age of 4, ELMIRA DARVAROVA caused a sensation, becoming the first ever (and so far only) woman- concertmaster in the history of the Metropolitan Opera in New York. With the MET Orchestra she toured Europe, Japan and the US, and was heard on the MET's live weekly international radio broadcasts, TV broadcasts, CDs and laser discs for Sony, Deutsche Grammophon and EMI. As MET Opera concertmaster she has performed with the greatest conductors of our time, including the legendary Carlos Kleiber. She studied with Yfrah Neaman at the Guildhall School in London (on a British Council scholarship), with Josef Gingold at Indiana University in Bloomington (as one of his assistants), and with Henryk Szeryng (privately). She can be heard on numerous CDs, (recent releases include the world premiere of Vernon Duke's violin concerto with ORF Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra, and a CD with world premiere recordings of music by René de Castéra, named a RECORD OF THE YEAR in 2015 by MusicWeb International). She has performed concertos with the Moscow State Symphony, the Vienna Radio Symphony and with numerous European and American orchestras, and has appeared on the world’s most prestigious stages, such as Carnegie Hall, Avery Fischer/ Geffen Hall, Alice Tully Hall and Symphony Space in New York; Symphony Hall in Chicago, Davies Symphony Hall in San Francisco, Roy Thomson Hall in Toronto, Suntory Hall, Bunka Kaikan and NHK Hall in Tokyo; Musikverein in Vienna, Cadogan Hall in London, Sheldonian Theatre in Oxford, Koncerthuset in Stockholm, Victoria Hall in Geneva, Smetana Hall in Prague, Megaron in Athens, Palau de la Musica Catalana in Barcelona, Alte Oper in Frankfurt, Kölner Philharmonie, Mumbai's National Center for Performing Arts, Moscow’s Tchaikovsky Hall, Saint Petersburg Philharmonia, among many others. She has given recitals and master classes at many festivals worldwide. Well-versed in a lot of genres, she has not only performed opera at the MET and shared the stage for symphonic and chamber performances with music giants such as James Levine, Janos Starker, Gary Karr, Samuel Ramey, Pascal Rogé, Philip Myers, Myron Bloom, Anthony McGill, but has also partnered with tango and jazz legends such as Octavio Brunetti, Fernando Otero and David Amram, and is collaborating, in performances and recordings, with world-renowned Indian classical musicians - the superstars of the Sarod - Ustad Amjad Ali Khan and his sons Amaan & Ayaan Ali Bangash. A documentary film about Elmira Darvarova was shown on European television. She performs with the New York Piano Quartet, the Delphinium Trio, the Quinteto del Fuego and the Amram Ensemble, and in a duo with Grammy® winner, pianist/composer Fernando Otero. She is Jury President of several international chamber music competitions in Europe, and President & Artistic Director of the New York Chamber Music Festival. Praised by Gramophone Magazine for her "ultra- impassioned performances", and in The STRAD for her “intoxicating tonal beauty and beguilingly sensuous phrasing" and "silky-smooth voluptuous tone”, she was featured in a Gramophone Magazine full-page article about her world-premiere recording of Vernon Duke's violin concerto (written for Heifetz in 1940), which she recorded with the ORF Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra.
