  • Fumiaki Miura violin
  • Itamar Golan piano

The second of three lunchtime concerts in the Avex Recital Series 2017 features violinist Fumiaki Miura, the youngest ever winner of the 2009 Joseph Joachim Hannover International Violin Competition, and pianist Itamar Golan, with a programme including works by Dvořák, Stravinsky and Beethoven. Miura performs on the violin by J.B. Guadagnini (1748) on loan from Yellow Angel Foundation.

‘This recording ranks as one of most satisfying accounts of this perennial pairing I have heard, and worthily has a place on the shelves next to my favourite versions. I am almost certain that we will be hearing a lot more of Fumiaki Miura in days to come. Such outstanding talent bodes well for his future career.’ [Tchaikovsky and Mendelssohn Violin Concertos], Musicweb.com, September 2015

‘He met the concerto’ s virtuosic demands with apparent ease, navigating extended passages of high harmonics with near-surgical precision and singing out beguiling melodies with a rich, full-bodied tone." (The Salt Lake Tribune, November 2014)

‘Mr Miura is the consummate, non-showy artist whose attention is totally on the music. His expressive playing illustrated staggeringly supreme technique. He is an artist of such brilliance, I marveled at his talent and obvious hard work, for this piece is of such difficulty’ Nancy Snipper, Arts and Opinion
