Akiko Suwanai, a tall, imposing violinist of striking stage presence, raised her bow for a sombre, intense descent of notes at the start: this was big-boned, noble playing, with its rhythmic life taut and rigorous
Since 2016, world renowned Italian conductor Gianandrea Noseda has lead the National Symphony Orchestra to great heights as the preeminent ensemble's visionary music director. Continuing his second season, he invites Japanese violin virtuoso Akiko Suwanai to the Kennedy Center Concert Hall Stage for a rousing program centred around Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto.
Becoming the youngest ever winner of the International Tchaikovsky Competition in 1990, Suwanai went on to become a regular guest performer alongside leading orchestras across the world. Possessed of a jaw-dropping technicality, unwavering rhythmic integrity and magical lyrical composure, the superstar violinist has rightfully earned her place amongst her generation's classical greats.
