A reporter from Limelight Magazine in London recently described the palpable musical chemistry between Anthony Marwood and Aleksandar Madžar this way: “Their playing is graceful and impressively accurate, but there is also something more. Anthony Marwood and Aleksandar Madžar held the Wigmore Hall audience spellbound for the entire duration of their concert together … What do a Serbian-born, Russian-trained pianist and British-born, London-trained violinist have in common? Marwood and Madžar have been performing together for almost two decades, with increasing frequency and to unvarying acclaim.  Why does it work so well? A small clue lies in the way the two musicians speak of each other's playing.

‘He has an extraordinarily natural, deep sense of architecture, a brilliance without display for the sake of it,’ says Marwood of Madžar.  ‘Not a note is gratuitous.  It's all extraordinarily deeply felt.’

‘He's a player who works on many different levels,’ says Madžar of Marwood.  ‘The emotional expressivity is there, but he also knows how to use his head.  There's a lot of thinking behind it, and there's a certain physicality about it which I quite like as well.’"

Detroit audiences – who also were spellbound during the Signature Series debut of Marwood and Madžar in 2013 – will have another opportunity to experience this special partnership when the duo returns for a richly varied program of 19t-h and early 20th-century sonatas for violin and piano from Germany, France, Russia and the Czech Republic.

"Golden tone and surefire musicianship."

Washington Post
