Varvara Kutuzova and Konstantin Emelyanov

When two acclaimed musicians who pursue brilliant solo careers meet at one stage is always a pleasure for the audience. Besides, it’s the new concert story. “The best music is written for ensembles”, Boris Berezovsky is sure. “Onstage communication is a pure delight!”
“First of all”, Ghindin adds, “Duo repertoire is vast, if somewhat overlooked”. 

Today, young musician take part in the concert. Varvara Kutuzova isn’t 17 yet, but she started her music career in the early age of 6, playing with a chamber orchestra. Her first solo recital in Moscow was when she was 8 y.o. After her winning of Denis Matsuev’s Astana Piano Passion (2013) her concerts were organized in France, Slovenia, China, and other countries .

The name Konstantin Emelyanov is going around. In 2019, he won the III prize at the Tachikovsky Competition. “Music is an unbelievable thing”, the pianist believes. “Once you’ve tasted it, you’ll never ever gonna enjoy anu day-to-day job”.

Kutuzova and Emelyanov meet on stage to play Mozart’s Double Concerto.
