Now that culture is back, the Russian pianist Anna Vinnitskaya will be performing in Berlin twice within the next two months. Those who want to experience her live may want to hurry because tickets are selling out quickly.
Berlin, March 4th, 2022 (The Berlin Spectator) — None other than Anna Vinnitskaya will be playing Robert Schumann’s ‘Arabesque’ in C major when she hits the stage at the Chamber Music Hall at the ‘Berliner Philharmonie’ on March 25th, 2022. She will also perform his ‘Piano Sonata No. 1’ in F minor. When the Russian piano genius is done with Schumann, she will continue with Frédéric Chopin.
Chopin and Ravel
The late French composer’s ‘Impromptus No. 1 to 3’ are listed on the playbill. Anna Vinnitskaya will complete the Chopin part of her concert with his ‘Fantaisie-Impromptu in C minor before she moves on to Maurice Ravel. His ‘Valses nobles et sentimentales’ are part of this promising evening which she will conclude with ‘La Valse’. Of course, tickets are selling well. In this particular case, most of the 1,180 seats, including the best ones, are taken already.
Audiences in Berlin who insist on good seats may want to wait until Anna Vinnitskaya returns on May 8th, 2022. In this case, she is scheduled to perform with the Brahms Ensemble Berlin, at the same venue. Rachel Schmidt and Raimar Orlovsky are the violinists of the evening, Julia Gartemann plays the slightly larger viola and Christoph Igelbrink will be working on the cello. In this case, more tickets were available as of March 4th.
From Monte Carlo to Katowice
Is Berlin the only city Mrs. Vinnitskaya will perform in? No. She will be playing with the Elbe Philharmonic in Hamburg, Kiel, and again in Hamburg today, tomorrow and on Sunday. Tickets? Forget it. Her recital round begins on March 20th, 2022, in Ahrensburg, just outside Hamburg. It continues in Antwerp (Belgium) on March 23rd and in Berlin on the 25th.
More concerts with Anna Vinnitskaya, mostly with large orchestras, and in some cases with small ensembles, will be taking place in Monte Carlo, Paris, Palermo, Vienna, Berlin (see above), Hamburg, Budapest, Bayreuth, Essen and Katowice.
Drowned in Awards
When she was 6 years old, she got her first piano lesson. It took only three years until she performed in public for the first time. Born in Novorossiysk, she and her parents moved to Rostov-on-Don when she was 12. This is where she studied at the Rachmaninoff Conservatory. Later, she continued her studies at the ‘Hochschule für Musik und Theater’ in Hamburg, where the 38-year-old piano master teaches today.
Anna Vinnitskaya is being drowned in awards. Early on, she won the International Junoshenki Competition. Later, she got the first prizes in the Jaèn Competition and the Elise Meyer Competition. How does the first prize in the Queen Elisabeth Music Competition for Piano sound? In Brussels, she got that one in 2007.
We have a favor to ask: As of March 3rd, 2022, nine readers are supporting The Berlin Spectator on a monthly basis. We appreciate everybody’s help a lot. Thank you so much! You know who you are.
But, The Berlin Spectator needs more supporters. Right now, we receive a low three-digit amount per month. The first digit is a 1. In order to make this a more stable project, the amount would have to be quintupled, at least.
This is the obvious question to you: Would you consider supporting The Berlin Spectator?
