DANAS (Zorica Kojić)

Triumphant treasure of ideas

[…] Anika Vavic was the first soloist to open the evening with Shostakovich’s 2nd Piano Concerto, a gift that immediately piques our curiosity to listen with a simply irresistible, complex and capricious imagination.

In the slow/ andante movement Vavic expands and surprises us with a refined meditation of Shostakovich's heavenly tenderness. This leads to the final explosion, the uniquely playful and twisted moods that end in the teasing rhythms of the delicate piano and orchestra.
