End of season in Switzerland, France, Czech Republic and Belgium
Judith has brought this 21/22 season to a close with two recitals at the Festival Concertus Moraviae in the Czech Republic, her debut at Flagey in Brussels within the Festival Musiq’3 and playing the Nights in the Gardens of Spain by Manuel de Falla with the Sinfonie Orchester Biel Solothurn in Switzerland as well as with the Orchestre National de Lille in France.
“Everything is evocation, suggestion, of a joyful and dancelike voluptuosity”, writes Classiquenews in its review of the interpretation with the French orchestra, conducted by Jean-Claude Casadesus within the Lille Piano(s) Festival, where the following day Judith joined the Gerhard Quartet to play the quintets by Dvorak and Granados.
A few days earlier, in her rendezvous with this great work of Spanish music and the Sinfonie Orchester Biel Solothurn conducted by Kaspar Zehnder, Bachtrack had remarked that “the pulse on the keys combines, in a surprising way, rigour, flexibility and virtuosity… her spectrum of sound is brilliant, her expressive solos generously prolong the effects of the orchestra. This complicity is sustained with the same charm throughout the magical dream that are the nocturnes in the gardens of Spain.”
In the coming weeks, several of Judith’s latest performances will be broadcast: the recital from Flagey in Brussels, with works by Grieg, Debussy and Scriabin, will be broadcast by the Belgian National Radio; the quintets by Granados and Dvorak played with the Gerhard Quartet can be watched and listed to on Mezzo TV; and her concert at La Rioja Festival in May, with works by Brahms, Chopin, Granados and Grieg and which was recorded by Allegro HD, will also be broadcast for the whole of Latin America.
This brings to a close a season full of enriching projects for Judith, both with orchestras as well as in chamber music and recital format, which have received a fantastic welcome by the public and critics alike.
