A concert featuring two giants – Sophie Pacini & Martha Argerich

On 09. April 2022 two first-class pianists of two generations meet. The talented pianist Sophie Pacini and the worldwide famous piano virtuoso Martha Argerich will give a duo concert at Herkulessaal Munich. Both pianists are connected with an intimate personal and artistic friendship. The programme features Wolfgang Amadeus Mozarts Sonata in D major and Franz Liszts Réminiscenes de Don Juan de Mozart. Both works were presented at Konzerthaus Vienna in December 2020, a concert which took place without audience due to the corona pandemic. This recorded concert was released a few days ago on Blu-ray.

Here you can see a little preview:


“Crazy though this sounds, I sensed that the souls of these legendary violinists were still in their instruments and I felt as if I was bringing their sound back to life”. (Janine Jansen)

What Janine Jansen is talking about was her unique opportunity playing 12 different Stradivaris and getting to know the characteristics of each instrument. Together with filmmaker Gerald Fox and the legendary Sir Antonio Pappano a unique journey began. Starting from her hometown Stockholm she travelled to Stradivarius' hometown Cremona, where she met the worldwide famous violin makers, and finally ended in a 10-day-stay in London to record a concert recital at Cadogan Hall. The result of this fascinating project is not only a centenaryrecital, for which 12 stradivaris had been brougth to one place, but also the captivating documentary, capturing all the incredible moments of Janine Jansen during this nerve-racking and stunning trip as well as much information about the Stradivaris history.

The documentary JANINE JANSEN _ FALLING FOR STRADIVARI by Gerald Fox is available on Blu-ray for the first time.
