Some musical samples of this concert are available here.

Tanja Becker-Bender's early musical success, manifested in top prizes at the international competitions, lead her to perform as a soloist under the baton of Kurt Masur, Gerd Albrecht and Fabio Luisi with renowned orchestras. Applying the idealistic approach of chamber music to all genres of music, whether concertos, virtuoso pieces, new music in first performances or baroque music on historic instruments, Tanja Becker-Bender is constantly striving for getting to the essence of each work performed, and dedicates herself to a wide range of repertoire. In 2006, she has been appointed one of the youngest professors ever in Germany, at the University of Music Saarland in Saarbr├╝cken, following Maxim Vengerov in that position.

 

Aida-Carmen Soanea, born in Romania, is prize winner of international competitions. She has performed as a soloist in Europe, North and South America and worked together with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, and the Wiener Philharmoniker. Her particular enthusiasm is chamber music. As a member in the delian::quartet she is an acclaimed guest in prominent festivals. Together with contemporary composers she broadens the repertoire for viola and teaches master courses all over the world.
