His concert in March was amongst the first ones that had to be canceled due to the coronavirus, so we were especially happy to have him opening this series of streams every Friday night at 8 p.m..
We share Bartleby Delicate’s delight about being able to fill the Philharmonie with sound again, even if it’s under special circumstances: «It’s obviously a weird situation for every musician at the moment. I can’t think of my music without an audience, it is always directed to people and my aim is to connect through music. The concert that I should have played at the Philharmonie in March was probably the show I was looking forward to the most this year. It’s already tough for me not to play any concerts but it was especially hard that this one got canceled. I’m happy that I can now play in this beautiful room anyway. To me personally, it means a lot to start this series of live streams from the Philharmonie in a situation where everyone is forced to think out of the box and make the best out of it. Live streams can sometimes feel unfulfilling in the sense that the sound or video quality are not as good as in a live concert. In this case, the live stream experience will be on another level because the room sounds great and technicians will take care of it. This means less stress for the artist and a better quality for the audience. And in times when it feels already special just to leave the house, for me this will definitely feel like a party. Nevertheless, I can’t wait for the real thing to start again and to perform live for an audience – nothing can replace this experience!».
The Trio Yano Schwall Kravos reunites three musicians closely linked to the Philharmonie and the Orchestre Philharmonique du Luxembourg: Ryoko Yano has been playing the First Violin at the OPL since 2017. Cellist Anik Schwall used to be an intern at the OPL and now plays regularly with the orchestra. And last time pianist Zala Kravos performed at the Philharmonie was at a Fräiraim concert in 2019. We are very happy to have the three of them playing at the Philharmonie again, even under these special circumstances!
