Alena Baeva and Vadym Kholodenko performed at Fribourg, Switzerland

image description

On May 10 Alena Baeva and Vadym Kholodenko gave a duo recital at the University of Fribourg (Freiburg), Switzerland, as a part of the International Piano Series.
It was a very special moment for both artists. They started to play together nine years ago, while still studying, with the Beethoven G-dur Sonata n.10. Since that time Alena and Vadym enjoyed many programs together and also had their solo careers flourishing. But after Vadym's triumph on 2013 Cliburn competition, finding dates became ever more challenging; this concert came after a few years break and has started a new chapter in collaboration of two old friends and passionate chamber musicians.
The program included Sonata a-moll and Fantasie by Franz Schubert, and Sonata No.3 'Epic' by Nikolay Medtner.

Concert review at Freiburger Nachrichten newspaper… (in German)

University of Fribourg was founded in 1582, and wonderful University Concert Hall has seen David Oistrakh and Sviatoslav Richter performing.
