Liza Ferschtman's passion for music seems to have no limits. Whether she is a soloist accompanied by a large orchestra or all on her own playing Bach in a small church or making chamber music with friends, she's always looking for the ultimate interpretation, freemdom and expression. This Dutch, Russian born, violinist has been brought up with music from a very young age. She is winner of the prestigious Nederlandse Muziekprijs 2006, plays around the world with famous orchestras and has been the artistic director of the Delft International Chamber Music Festival for many years. The New York Times called her 'a revelation', praising her performance for its 'lazer-like intensity, purity and refined beauty". She especially chose three of her most beloved friends for a concert in our Masters of Chamber Music series, bringing a programme including the most wonderful piano quartets by Dvorák and Brahms as well as Janáček's intense Sonata for violin and piano.

Johannes Brahms en Antonin Dvorák waren goed bevriend en ze bewonderden elkaars werk. Zij ademen beiden de vrijheid en de sfeer van de romantiek, maar voelden zich het meest thuis bij klassieke vormen. Deze twee pianokwartetten vormen hoogtepunten in hun oeuvre. Bruisend van warmbloedige melodieën en volksmuziek-achtige ritmiek. Drie strijkers en een piano in intiem gesprek, en euforisch zingend. Het Pianokwartetvan Brahms lijkt met zijn hemelse lengte de geniale late kamermuziek van Schubert naar de kroon te willen steken. Dvorák is karakteristiek uitbundig, melancholisch en doordrenk van Slavische volksmuziek invloeden. 

‘Ik schreef deze Vioolsonate in 1914, aan het begin van de oorlog, toen we de Russen in Moravië verwachtten’, schreef Leos Janácek in 1922. Dat die Russen kwamen, was voor Janácek niet bedreigend. Zoals veel van zijn landgenoten zag hij ze als bevrijders. ‘Ik hoor staal op staal botsen’, zei hij reflecterend op dit werk. Janáceks Vioolsonate is donker, expressief en zangerig als de Tsjechische taal waardoor hij zich zo graag liet inspireren. Liza Ferschtman en pianist Jonathan Biss geven elke noot van deze intense muziek zijn eigen lading.
