Program notes

This masterclass recounts the trajectory of a supremely gifted violist and turbulent artist, heir to a uniquely Russian tradition of interpretative rigour which is seen passing on to his pupils here. Yuri Bashmet is an explosive mixture of severity and sensitivity which reaches the heights of musical sublimity!
