Anneleen Lenaerts and Dionysis Grammenos (Belgium/Greece)

Expect passion, technical aplomb and an exceptional chemistry between two dazzling virtuosi as Anneleen Lenaerts, Principal Harpist of the Vienna Philharmonic performs with Dionysis Grammenos, recently dubbed by one critic as “the new prince of the clarinet”.

Acclaimed for wonderfully nuanced playing and idiomatic arrangements, Lenaerts has garnered an astonishing 23 international awards as a solo player, most notably at the Grand Prix International Lily Laskine – the world’s most highly-regarded harp award – as well as performing with many of Europe’s leading orchestras, while Greek clarinettist Grammenos is widely recognized as one of the most charismatic and inspiring artists of his generation. His international breakthrough occurred in 2008, when Grammenos won the Grand Prix d’Eurovision and the title of the European Young Musician of the Year. The 25-year-old virtuoso regularly performs at some of the world’s most prestigious venues including Carnegie Hall in New York, Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw and London’s Barbican Centre. The duo’s much anticipated debut CD is due to be released by Warner Classics in October 2016.

Not to be missed: this is chamber music-making of the highest order!
