About the Event

At the Kulturpalast, three phenomenal artists — Leonidas Kavakos, Yo‐Yo Ma, and Emanuel Ax — come together in an extraordinary trio. Since their first performance at the Tanglewood Festival in 2014, this remarkable formation continues to captivate audiences and critics alike. Their musical chemistry, according to 'The Washington Post,' is described as 'almost supernatural.' In their program entitled 'Beethoven for Three,' they delve into Beethoven's trios and symphonies. The trio arrangements of the symphonies create a fascinating blend between chamber and orchestral music, offering new perspectives and rekindling the immense power and direct appeal of Beethoven's compositions. Undoubtedly, this performance is a highlight in the festival calendar.

Artists

Conductor, Violin: Leonidas Kavakos

That Greek violin virtuoso Leonidas Kavakos had a rare gift was apparent early on. Born into a family of musicians, he took up his instrument at the age of five. By 18 he was ready to make his concert debut at the 1984 Athens Festival; a year later, he became the youngest contestant to date to win the prestigious International Sibelius Competition—a turning point in the young musician’s career that brought his name to international audiences. Kavakos has recorded numerous albums and given critically acclaimed performances around the world, appearing alongside renowned ensembles such as the Berlin Philharmonic, the London Symphony Orchestra, and the Gewandhausorchester Leipzig. He is especially well known for his fine interpretations of Beethoven’s violin sonatas.

Piano: Emanuel Ax
Cello: Yo‐Yo Ma
