‘Sublime and poigant’ (★★★★★ NRC)

On November 13, Volodos will perform a beautiful new program in the World Master Pianists series in the main hall of AMARE, The Hague. In addition to music by Skrjabin, Volodos will play, as a tribute to the Spanish pianist Alicia de Larrocha (1923 – 2009), whom he greatly admired, a large selection of short pieces of his favorite Spanish composer Federico Mompou. Compositions in which the music sometimes almost comes to a standstill, nevertheless with an incredible eloquence.

Arcadi Volodos has developed into one of the most profound pianists in the world. Time and time again his performances leave his listeners as enchanted, as if they have attended a spiritual worship service. Newspaper Trouw: “His unique technique enables him to bring out voices in the most complicated passages, that no one else can achieve.”

Arcadi Volodos plays Mompou


Due to illness, it remained uncertain until the last minute whether Arcadi Volodos would be able to participate in the concert. But he did play! However, given his condition, this was limited to a magical first half with all of Mompou’s planned works and four encores to compensate.

The merely 20-year-old Dutch super-talent Aidan Mikdad then played, with Volodos’ approval, a beautiful selection of compositions of Skrjabin, ultimately giving the very enthusiastic audience an even longer concert.

As a result, the complete programme of the concert was as follows:
