About

Ilya Gringolts and Aleksandar Madzar draw a portrait of Beethoven.

In the Swiss mountains lies the Verbier Festival where Ilya Gringolts and Aleksandar Madzar begin their performance with a Beethoven sonata full of classical rigor and exuberance. Gringolts' technique exhibits precision, neatness and expressivity. Never emphatic, the violinist interprets Beethoven with a fascinating objectivity.

The famous Sonata to Kreutzer reveals Aleksandar Madzar's dazzling skills. Delivering a solid and architectural interpretation, his presence becomes a real musical persona, not only an accompaniment, which imposes his ideas on the music that is being played. Through their majestic techniques, these two musicians manage to erect Beethoven as a synthetic composer: haunted by classical equilibrium yet ravished with romantic passion.
