ICMA for Franziska Pietsch, Josu De Solaun & audite

Jan 21, 2021 | Wencke Wallbaum News ICMA for Franziska Pietsch, Josu De Solaun & audite

​​Also in 2021 audite is honoured with an International Classical Music Award (ICMA). The winner in the category "Chamber Music" is Fantasque with Franziska Pietsch (violin) and Josu De Solaun (piano).

Statement of the jury: "From La Belle Époque to the years of World War II, the violin sonatas on this CD reflect the moods and whims of fast-changing times. Franziska Pietsch and Josu de Solaun explore the under currents of Fauré's bitter-sweet romanticism, let Ravel's colours sparkle, and enjoy their ride through Poulenc's frenzy. They bring a fresh sense of boldness and eloquence to well-known pieces."

After numerous enthusiastic reviews and awards from the international press, the production receives with the ICMA now one of the most important awards of the international music scene. We are very happy about this recognition!

The Award Ceremony and Gala Concert will take place in Vaduz, Switzerland, on 27 June 2021, with the Sinfonieorchester Liechtenstein conducted by Yaron Traub.
