The German-Greek artist Danae Dörken is already one of the most sought-after young pianists of her generation. She was encouraged by Yehudi Menuhin at an early age and studied with Karl-Heinz Kämmerling and Lars Vogt. In 2015 she founded the “Molyvos International Music Festival” on Lesbos together with her sister - and regular duo partner - Kiveli Dörken.
In addition to the purely classical repertoire, Danae Dörken also likes to go into her Greek roots in her programs. Your last album "East and West", on which you u. a. Eastern music by Chopin and Kalomiris met western music by Schubert and Grieg, met with a great response from the public and the specialist press.

Quatuor Arod's new album Schubert: Death and the Maiden will be released on October 2nd, 2020 by Warner Classics. “We wanted to discover the different stylistic phases in Schubert's life,” the French musicians explain. And so, in addition to the eponymous string quartet No. 14 “Death and the Maiden”, the string quartets No. 4 and No. 12 (“Quartettsatz”) can be heard on the young quartet's new album.
