Lisa Batiashvili set standards with her recording of Sibelius's Violin Concerto: her view of the work, which balances intellect and emotion, delighted audiences and the press alike. In her portrait, the internationally sought-after violinist, who has received prestigious awards, will perform the work with the Wiener Philharmoniker and Philippe Jordan. The starting point of the personale, however, is Batiashvili's interpretation of Beethoven's violin concerto, which she performs with the Amsterdamer Concertgebouworkest under Paavo Järvi. The series concludes with a journey to her home country Georgia, where Batiashvili, as a tone-setting mentor, presents young, highly talented scholarship holders from her Lisa Batiashvili Foundation.
