'If you want to make music, you owe it to the composer to really give everything you have.' Words from violinist Janine Jansen. Hearing the very young Japanese violinist Hina Maeda, violinist and critic Heather Kurzbauer understood, this young violinist is following in Jansen's footsteps: 'That's what Hina does. She plays fully from the heart.' Hina Maeda is only 20 but already has a great track record. Before she gloriously won the Wieniawski Competition in 2022, she already achieved - at 13! - the highest score at the Violinwettbewerb Kloster Schöntal. Pianist José Gallardo is in great demand as a chamber music player. Now he accompanies Hina Maeda, while he has previously performed with Vilde Frang, Gidon Kremer and Nicolas Altstaedt.
