In the first days of summer, on June 26th, the students of the Zakhar Bron School of Music appeared on the stage of the Chamber Hall of the Congress House of Zurich for the first time.
The School presented 15 young violinists and pianists, five to seventeen years old. Among the participants the audience could hear were:
The children presented a program of various styles: Baroque (Bach, Vivaldi, Fiocco), Romanticism (Chopin, Wieniawski, Kreisler, Vieuxtemps), Russian and Soviet music by Tchaikovsky and Shostakovich. The public especially appreciated the appearance of the lovely five year old Estelle Pressler with Perpetum Mobile by Bohm and the moving performance a Gluck melody from the opera “Orpheus and Eurydice” by the charming Ilva Eigus.
Two students of the Zakhar Bron Academy in Interlaken, Ines Burzhinska and Rolanda Ginkute also took part in the concert, performing virtuosic violin fantasies: “Faust” by Wieniawski and “Carmen” by Waxman-Gounod.
