An unusual duo
Doors open at 4:30 pm
Consolazione and dance Song without words
Duo KV 423 in G major in three movements
The Atelier De Grandi is happy to welcome this unusual duo again.
The program proposed by Diana Pasko and Philippe Schiltknecht, both members of the Orchestre de Chambre de Lausanne, combines little-known works with a great classic.
Born in the Crimea, Diana Pasko began playing the violin and piano at the age of four. At the age of six, she gave her first public recitals at the Special School of Music in Kharkiv, Ukraine.
She joined the prestigious chamber orchestra "Moscow Virtuosi" in 2013, and performs in various foundations in Moscow and St. Petersburg. She participated in various international competitions in Russia, Italy and Monaco, which led her to join the class of Maestro Maxim Vengerov and Professor Oleg Kaskiv at the International Menuhin Music Academy in Switzerland.
As of 2018, she continues her studies at the HEMU in Lausanne, and then joins the Lausanne Chamber Orchestra in 2019.
Born in 1962, Philippe Schiltcknecht began studying the cello at the age of 10 with Anne-Lise Nickele. He continued his studies at the Conservatoire de Lausanne where he obtained a teaching diploma.
In 1984, he attended an internship at the Lausanne Academy of Music with Maurice Gendron. A year later, the Lausanne Conservatory awarded him a first prize for virtuosity with congratulations from the jury, while he was attending Guy Fallot's cello class.
Philippe Schiltcknecht studied with Rocco Filipini in Cremona and Paul Tortelier. Since 1990 he has been a member of the Lausanne Chamber Orchestra. He also participates in numerous concerts as a chamber musician, in recital or as a soloist.
