On 2nd June, Syrian violinist Bilal Alnemr and Czech pianist Marek Kozák played music by Smetana, Ysaÿe and Grieg for a good-humoured adult audience at the “Razzia” in Zurich, while on 3rd June, during a family concert titled “Tchaikovsky and his Nutcracker”, children’s eyes shone brightly – and not only because of the unexpected Christmas cookies, which were handed out to them.
“In Touch with Talent” has been run jointly by the Géza Anda-Foundation and the Orpheum-Foundation for many years. Both foundations are dedicated to the promotion of young musicians.
In the run-up to the 16th Concours Géza Anda 2024, a morning event was also held for host families, during which Marek Kozák played an interesting Rachmaninoff programme. We are still looking for host parents for the next Concours; you can find more information here.
