A duo of superb performers from Brno – violinist František Novotný and pianist Igor Ardašev. They chose three composers with names beginning with an “S”: alongside famous Robert Schumann, they will present his equally talented wife Clara. Third will be Richard Strauss’s virtuosic Violin Sonata written when he fell in love with his future wife.

Igor Ardašev

Igor Ardašev clearly belongs to the most significant personalities of the emerging generation of European pianists. A Brno native, he practiced his piano skills with Inessa Janíčková at the Brno Conservatoire as well as at Janáček Academy of Arts. Today he has an imposing list of successful recitals behind him (Europe, America, Japan) as well as numerous excellent recordings.
The most interesting include solo projects (Tchaikovsky, Liszt, Beethoven, Dvořák, Ježek, Janáček, Martinů) as well as a four-hand version of Janáček's overture Jealousy realized together with Rudolf Firkušný. His discography was recently also complemented by notable recordings of Dvořák's Slavonic Dances and Smetana's My Country in the four-hand version with his life- and artistic partner, wife Renata Ardaševová.
