Diana Tishchenko

Sunday matinee

Description Program Artists

Maurice Ravel was famous for two things: his exquisite taste in clothing and the extraordinary virtuosity of his music. Whether velvety, rough, soft, or metallic, Ravel could be fascinated by different fabrics and surfaces for hours. Like an entomologist who dissects butterflies before reassembling them, he recreated the most varied styles – from “refined” French Baroque to “dirty” American Jazz and “sweaty” Hungarian gypsy music. An example of the latter is Ravel’s rhapsody Tzigane, which was once considered unplayable – and will be presented today by the young award-winning Ukrainian violinist Diana Tishchenko.
