»Virtuoso elegance, rhythmic charm, and an unusual flair for a variety of timbres«, wrote the Süddeutsche Zeitung about the violin art of Emmanuel Tjeknavorian. Since receiving an award for the best interpretation of the violin concerto by Jean Sibelius at the International Jean Sibelius Violin Competition in 2015, the Viennese-born violinist has become one of the most sought-after musicians of his generation within a very short time.
The »Rising Star« cycle took him to the most renowned concert halls in Europe, and the Wiener Musikverein appointed him the youngest artist in residence in the history of the concert house. Emmanuel Tjeknavorian will make his SHMF debut together with the esteemed Budapest Festival Orchestra under the baton of its founder Iván Fischer with an extremely beautiful sounding rarity: Felix Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto in D minor, not to be confused with the much better known Violin Concerto in E minor.
Compared to its sister piece, this early work – Mendelssohn was only 13 years old when he composed it – is still more rooted in the classical tradition. Nonetheless, the Violin Concerto in D minor already bears witness to Mendelssohn's masterful sense of form and poetic soul that would come to characterize later compositions.
