Ilian Garnetz is Moldavian and, before his extraordinary performance at the Queen Elisabeth competition (violin – 2009), was still unknown outside his country. Alina Bercu is Romanian, she is just 20 years old, but has already been finalist of the Clara Haskil competition two years ago. Together they constitute a talented duo, inventive, spontaneous. It is no surprise to see that the BNP Paribas Fortis bank selected Garnetz for a series of concerts and a recording. And here it is. Schubert-Ysaÿe-Brahms: three facets of a wonderful violist carrying with him a secular tradition, and perfectly accompanied in Schubert and in Brahms.
