Isabelle Faust and Alexander Melnikov

When the star duo Faust/Melnikov recorded Beethoven’s violin sonatas in 2009, it led to a Grammy nomination. The German violinist and the Russian pianist have since continued to collaborate and, among other things, have recorded works by Schumann and Brahms at Harmonia Mundi.

Individually, the two musicians have gained a significant reputation as soloists and regularly perform with the world’s leading orchestras. Last year, Isabelle Faust became affiliated with Mahler Chamber Orchestra as “artistic partner”, but her performances spread across a wide repertoire from baroque to completely new music.
