Daishin Kashimoto violin; Alessio Bax piano

Avex Recital Series 2017


  • Daishin Kashimoto violin
  • Alessio Bax piano

The final lunchtime concert in the Avex Recital Series 2017 features violinist Daishin Kashimoto, the First Concertmaster of the Berliner Philharmoniker since 2010, and pianist Alessio Bax, with a programme including works by Mozart, Szymanowski and Grieg. Kashimoto plays on a violin made by Andrea Guarneri, 1674.

‘Kashimoto and Uchida’s combined quietness and exceptional control meant the incredibly rarefied, atmospheric ending – in which the violin rises to stratospheric altitude then descends in a slow, unshakeable, pianissimo succession of fifths and fourths – was breathtaking.’ David Fay, Bachtrack

‘And this was indeed an ensemble concert, not a star recital; of the final encore, Strauss’s ‘Morgen’, it’s Daishin Kashimoto’s violin solo that lingers in the memory more than Kožená’s singing or Rattle’s playing’ Erica Jeal, Guardian, January 2016
