Renowned as one of the contemporary virtuosos of the violin, Augustin Hadelich is set to captivate audiences at the Teatro Verdi in Trieste on Monday, May 20th. The performance marks the culmination of the 2023/2024 season for the Concert Society of Trieste, promising a night of musical magic that seamlessly blends classical and blues influences.

Hadelich, celebrated as an artist with Warner Classics and a recipient of the prestigious Grammy Award in 2016 for ‘Best Classical Instrumental Solo’, brings his unparalleled talent to the stage at 8:30 PM local time. His mastery of the instrument and unique interpretation style have garnered him global acclaim, making him a sought-after performer across major concert halls worldwide.

The program for the evening is a testament to Hadelich’s versatility and artistic depth. Performing on the esteemed 1744 Giuseppe Guarneri del Gesù violin, known as ‘Leduc, ex Szeryng’, Hadelich will navigate through a repertoire that juxtaposes the intricate contrapuntal style of Baroque with the soulful expressions of blues. Audiences will have the privilege of experiencing masterpieces such as Johann Sebastian Bach’s ‘Partita No. 3 in E Major BWV 1006’ and ‘Partita No. 2 in D Minor BWV 1004’ alongside compositions by the Afro-American composer Coleridge-Taylor Perkinson, David Lang, and Eugene Ysaÿe.

Born in Tuscany to German parents, Hadelich’s musical journey began in Italy before he ventured to the renowned Juilliard School in New York City. His prodigious talent blossomed under the tutelage of esteemed mentors, culminating in victories at prestigious competitions and accolades such as being named “Instrumentalist of the Year” by Musical America.

Hadelich’s performance promises to be an unforgettable experience, showcasing not only his technical brilliance but also his ability to convey emotion and narrative through music. As critics have noted, his musicality transcends technical prowess, embodying a profound sense of beauty and innovation.

The concert also marks a significant milestone for the Concert Society of Trieste, which has curated a diverse and vibrant season of musical offerings with the support of esteemed sponsors and partners.
