Father and son.

Music has always been a family affair at the Easter Festival and we are lucky to be able to witness a family get-together between Alexandre Kantorow, who has two Victoires de la Musique Classique, and whom Paris Match named the “French piano tzar”, and his father, the violinist Jean-Jacques Kantorow, once referred to by the great Glenn Gould as having a "staggering" talent and the most original violinist he had ever heard.

Father and son have chosen to pay tribute to Brahms with a performance of all three sonatas for violin and piano, a spellbinding repertoire that feeds off the intimate, warm dialogue between the two instruments which never take precedence over each other. The material lends itself beautifully itself to this intergenerational performance.
