"Some things cannot be taught or learned [...] Her playing is honest and intense. I predict a great future for her." Let's take a leaf out of Grigory Sokolov's book by not considering Alexandra Dovgan a child prodigy. Born in 2007, the Moscow native with magic fingers takes to the stage as an accomplished artist, whose stunning musicality no one can resist. Two and a half years after her first appearance in Paris, on the occasion of the same Sunday concerts, she will enchant the audience with the Vienna Carnival (Faschingsschwank aus Wien), a colourful fantasy composed by Schumann in 1839, before telling us the stories imagined by Chopin in the 4 Ballades written between 1835 and 1842, narrative pages if there ever was one.
