Yury Revich, violin, and Benedict Kloeckner, cello, presented by Music Network
We’re set for performances of great passion and intimacy as two highly gifted young soloists, Russian violinist Yury Revich and German cellist Benedict Kloeckner, share a stage for the first time in Ireland.
A true virtuoso – and an impassioned believer in making the violin “sing” – Yury Revich made his debut at Carnegie Hall in 2009 and since then has performed in many of the world’s most prestigious concert halls. Winner of multiple awards, including the Young Artist of the Year at the International Classical Music Awards in 2015, Revich is a dedicated chamber musician, collaborating with renowned artists such as Daniil Trifonov as well as founding Quatuor du Soleil.
One of Germany’s most acclaimed young cellists, Benedict Kloeckner has been lauded for his “glowing, ethereal tone” and “perfect intonation”. In addition to performing as a soloist in venues such as Berlin’s Philharmoniker, the Barbican Centre and Carnegie Hall, Kloeckner is a much sought-after chamber musician, collaborating with such luminaries as Sir András Schiff, Anne Sophie Mutter, Gidon Kremer and Christoph Eschenbach.
Music Network has commissioned Sebastian Adams to write new music for this tour.
