Beethoven Revisited – the violin sonatas performed with new perspectives on artistic historical practices such as tempo and rhythmic flexibility, use of rhetoric and cantabile.

Jacqueline Ross enjoys a unique and varied career performing on both modern and period instruments. Born in New York, she began her studies under the legendary Joseph Fuchs at the Juilliard School, continuing studies in contemporary music with Saschko Gawriloff in Germany, and baroque violin with Lucy van Dael in Amsterdam. Her solo recordings, which have been met with wide critical acclaim, include the complete Sonatas and Partitas of JS Bach. Jacqueline is also a devoted teacher, and is currently Professor at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. She is regularly invited to give masterclasses internationally, which include the Curtis Institute, the Mozarteum, the Paris Conservatoire, and conservatories throughout Europe and the Far East. She has also adjudicated on many major violin competitions, including the Menuhin, Salzburg Mozart, Leopold Mozart, Isang Yun, and Louis Spohr International Violin Competitions, among others. Her research into style and performance has been supported by the Dutch Arts and Humanities Research Board, The British Council, and the London Centre for Arts and Cultural Exchange. She was awarded an AHRC – Centre for Musical Performance and Creative Practice (CMPCP) Visiting Fellowship based at Cambridge University, to further her research on early 19th century performance practice, and to prepare an edition of Schubert’s Trockne Blumen Variations, which she has recorded. She has recently been awarded a Guildhall School Research Grant to investigate the music of Brahms with a particular focus on Joseph Joachim’s approach to “Cantabile” in string playing. This has led to the innovative chamber music series “Brahms Re-heard”, which presents illustrated performances of Brahms and his contemporaries. Her scholarly-critical edition of Clara Schumann’s Drei Romanzen op. 22 for Bärenreiter was published in March 2021 by Bärenreiter. This edition is the first to include, in addition to the first edition, the numerous manuscript sources that survive today, such as: Schumann’s draft manuscript, presentation autographs for Wasielewski and Joachim, as well as copyists’ parts once owned by the two violinists.
She performs on a GB Guadagnini violin made in Turin in 1777, which was financed for her with kind help from NW Brown.

Dmitry Ablogin is regarded as one of the most brilliant and creative keyboard artists of his generation.
Dmitry studied piano under the guidance of Vladimir Tropp at the Gnessin Academy in Moscow and graduated with distinction in 2012. His marked interest in historical pianos led him to Frankfurt University of Music and Performing Arts, where he studied fortepiano and historically informed performance with Jesper Bøje Christensen.
Dmitry has won prizes at numerous piano competitions: the 1st International Chopin Competition on Period Instruments (Warsaw, 2018), the International Competition “Musica Antiqua” for Pianoforte (Bruges, 2019), the German Piano Open (Hanover, 2016), the International Vera Lotar-Shevchenko Competition (Novosibirsk, 2010) and the Nikolai Rubinstein Competition (Paris, 2006) to name a few.
In October 2021, Dmitry won the 10th International German Pianist Award and made his début at the Alte Oper Frankfurt.

Highlights of Dmitry Ablogin’s 2023-24 season include debuting at the Berlin Philharmonie, Cologne Philharmonie, Concertgebouw Amsterdam, Konzerthaus Freiburg, Edinburgh Queen’s Hall and Glasgow City Halls.
He appears as a soloist together with the Freiburger Barockorchester, the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, the Orchestra of the 18th Century and Nürnberger Symphoniker. 

Dmitry has performed at the “Chopin and his Europe” festival, organised in Warsaw by the Chopin Institute, in 2019, 2020, and 2022, and the Miami International Piano Festival (USA). He has also given concerts in Germany, Denmark, France, Italy, Spain, Poland, Finland, Russia and Switzerland.
As a chamber music partner, he regularly performs with artists such as the Eliot String Quartet, the Henschel Quartet, Alena Baeva, Anastasia Kobekina and soprano Kateryna Kasper.
Dmitry has made CD recordings for prominent labels such as Naxos, Genuin, Organum Classics. In 2022, he released three albums, including his first solo recording featuring two versions of the Diabelli Variations by Beethoven – on a modern piano (Fazioli grand) and a period piano (Streicher Fortepiano 1825). This CD has been presented on BR Klassik and in the VAN Magazin as the Album of the week.
Two previous recordings, chamber music by César Franck with the Eliot Quartet and songs by Fanny and Felix Mendelssohn with soprano Kateryna Kasper were nominated for prestigious awards such as “Opus Klassik”, “Preis der Deutsche Schallplattenkritik” and “International Classical Music Awards”.

Dmitry is currently based in Germany. In addition to performing around the world, he leads a piano class at Frankfurt University of Music and Performing Arts.
