In the field of music, talent has nothing to do with age: the winners of the Nutcracker Competition can well prove it! This contest launched nearly twenty years ago by Russia's Kultura television channel gathers every year in Moscow an extraordinary selection of young musicians under 14 from all over the world, who compete in three disciplines: piano, strings and wind instruments. The Septembre Musical is proud to welcome a quartet of Russian prizewinners for this concert in Vevey. Pianist Alexandra Dovgan was only 10 years old when she won in 2017 a Gold Medal at the Nutcracker Competition. She is undoubtedly one of tomorrow's stars, as are the three other young virtuosos who will share the stage: oboist Timofei Yakhnov (winner of the Moscow competition in 2015), violinist Daniel Bessonov (winner in 2016) and saxophonist Sofia Tyurina (winner in 2017).

Piano
Balakirev / Liadov / Scriabine

The Septembre Musical could not afford to omit one of today's most brilliant representatives of the Russian piano school! Boris Berezovsky was exposed to this great tradition in the course of his studies at the Moscow Conservatory and made his breakthrough in 1990, when he was unanimously awarded the Gold Medal at the prestigious Tchaikovsky Competition. The Moscow-born pianist regularly performs with the world's leading orchestras and is the much-appreciated chamber music partner of numerous famous musicians such as Vadim Repin, Julian Rachlin and Alexander Melnikov. Boris Berezovsky also performs regularly in recital series where he can display his wide expressive range through carefully selected programmes, such the one he will present at the Castle of Chillon. Scriabine's Poèmes for piano and his Piano Sonata nº 5 will accompany lesser-known works of the Russian repertoire by Mily Balakirev and Anatoly Lyadov. A wonderful opportunity to appreciate the sheer beauty of the Slavic soul!
