It was in the early 2000s that the young Russian Alena Baeva made a name for herself among professionals when she took part in a number of competitions. Two great names looked into her destiny: Rostropovitch invited her to continue her training in France and a few years later Seiji Ozawa invited her to join his Academy in Switzerland. Under the watchful eye of her two mentors, she was launched on the international circuit. An impressive line-up for this last violin weekend with a programme featuring one of Beethoven's most famous opus, the sonata "Spring" followed by Clara Schumann's tender Romance and Brahms' iconic F-A-E sonata (Frei Aber Einsam / free but lonely). When one speaks of the violin, the shadow of the immense Ysaÿe is never far away and it is precisely to her attention that Chausson dedicated his Poème Op. 25, which was originally written for violin and orchestra. The chamber version retains all its melodic character and the brilliance of the violin part. Student and son-in-law of Dvořák, a contemporary of Ravel, himself a violinist, Josef Suk's Love Song belongs to the essential pieces of the violin repertoire. Finally, to conclude, the art of technical pyrotechnics illustrated by Waxman's Carmen Fantaisie.
