Patricia Kopatchinskaja is a phenomenon. For the whirlwind musician from Moldavia, it has always seemed much too boring to just be one of the best violinists of her generation. Of course she has the great violin classics at her fingertips, but at the same time there is nothing she hates more than the unquestioning reproduction of tradition. Her mission is to pass on the fire, and there is hardly any artist around who sends out as many sparks as she does. So she has built up a repertoire ranging from the Middle Ages to the avant-garde, playing with symphony orchestras and with folk groups from Eastern Europe, and brushing standard works the wrong way by placing them in unusual contexts. A total of six concerts spread over the season gives audiences the chance to get to know this highly expressive artist.
