Rising Star Emmanuel Tjeknavorian
For several years, the Society of Music Friends in Vienna has accompanied and supported the career of 22-year-old violinist Emmanuel Tjeknavorian. Meanwhile, the young Viennese with Armenian roots is on the way to a great career. Since his debut in the Musikverein, he has given several sonata and chamber music evenings and, with his interpretation of Schubert's C major fantasy, has become "beautiful proof of the thesis that the Viennese music culture has not died out" (Die Presse).
Appointed by the Musikverein and Konzerthaus as representatives of Austria for the international concert series "Rising Stars", Emmanuel Tjeknavorian will be guesting in leading concert halls in Europe in 2017/18 and in the Musikverein - with a highly demanding program for violin solo, which also features works written especially for him by Christoph Ehrenfellner. As a rising star, he also visited a Viennese school to share his enthusiasm for classical music with young people.
