The Patricia Kopatchinskaja phenomenon

The violinist is the Elbphilharmonie's Artist in Portrait in the 2020/21 season.

»She is unique and she doesn’t know it«, conductor Teodor Currentzis says about her: Patricia Kopatchinskaja is a phenomenon in the music world. The violinist programmes her concerts so that »they speak to everyone and give every listener something to take away with him, something he is grateful for«. In the 2020/21 season the Elbphilharmonie is devoting a portrait to Ms Kopatchinskaja with six concert evenings.
