“A magician of the violin, who infuses even the slightest breath of a tone with expression.” Der Tagesspiegel (Germany)

“Stunning… he might be the most deeply satisfying violinist performing today.” Philadelphia Inquirer

Leonidas Kavakos, “astonishingly virtuosic and blazingly insightful” (The Guardian, U.K.), has established himself as a violinist of rare quality, an artist who not so much plays music as expressively inhabits it. Renowned for his keen intelligence, probing musical imagination and striking range of sound, Kavakos appears with acclaimed pianist Enrico Pace, winner of the International Franz Liszt Piano Competition. Their masterful all-Beethoven concert follows the release of their highly anticipated new album on Decca featuring the complete Beethoven Violin Sonatas.
