RYU GOTO, VIOLIN, VSO/ LAHAV SHANI
It has only been a few years since Midori gave us a magnificent Brahms Violin Concerto, and now her younger brother, Ryu, arrives to perform the same work. Ryu's Goto career began at age seven when he made his debut at the Pacific Music Festival in Sapporo, Japan, playing Paganini's Violin Concerto No.1. At age 26, he is a rising star and has already recorded 5 CD’s for Deutsche Grammophon. Interestingly, he holds a 3rd degree black belt from the Japan Karate Association – so reviewers beware! Israeli conductor and pianist Lahav Shani, 25, was awarded first prize at the prestigious Gustav Mahler International Conducting Competition in 2013, making a huge impression with his astonishing maturity and instinctive musicality. He was subsequently invited to open the 2013/14 season of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra.
