Diana Tishchenko & José Gallardo

ECHO Rising Stars

Praised in the German press for her musicality, technical mastery and charisma, Ukrainian-born violinist Diana Tishchenko possesses a musical imagination to match a thrilling programme.

In a concert of contrasts, Tishchenko sets the scene with two sonatas composed almost 300 years apart. The lyrical undulations of the ‘Andante’ from J S Bach’s Violin Sonata No 2 soothe the soul while Fazıl Say’s evocative elegy to nature takes us on a journey from the depths of chaos and destruction to the heights of hope and rebirth. 

A violinist of ‘spontaneity and eloquence’ (The Strad), Tishchenko shifts with ease from billowing melodies to the arresting sounds of music far more contemporary, including the haunting beauty of KAYA by Ukrainian composer Maxim Shalygin and Vasco Mendonça’s tempestuous a box of darkness with a bird in its heart, written for Tishchenko as part of her ECHO Rising Star series. And, as we’ll no doubt discover, the title of rising star and this promising young artist go together like hand in glove.
