Lisa Batiashvili returns to LA Phil for her first appearance with Dudamel
“There is something so super-intuitive about (Lisa’s) playing that, while she is performing, the brilliance of her technique, the range of her colours and the sheer invention of her phrasing are subsumed into the intrigue of her musical storytelling … The Tchaikovsky exudes a melancholic warmth fusing classical and romantic sensibilities. … There is undeniable relish for the expressive opportunities that the pieces throws up at every turn but for all the colour and invention of Batiashvili’s playing it is never, ever self-regarding.” (Gramophone Magazine)
Following her appearance with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Batiashvili will perform at the opening week of Boulez Saal, Berlin on 9 March, and complete her residency with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra with performances of Shostakovich Violin Concerto No. 1 in Amsterdam (16 and 19 March) and Antwerp (17 March) with Vladimir Jurowski.
