The two Hungarians not only played music, they were themselves the music – in every nerve – down to their fingertips.

Cosima Soulez Larivière debuted successfully in front of a Hungarian audience in September of 2017, walking off with first prize of the 1st Bartók World Competition and Festival. Born in Paris, she has studied music since the age of three. Her talent was spotted early on, she won a scholarship to the Yehudi Menuhin School in the UK at eight, where she was tutored by Nathasha Boyarsky. Currently she is studying in Germany with Krzysztof Węgrzyn at the Hannover University of Music. Despite her youth she has given numerous concerts in Europe and Asia, and prior to the Bartók World Competition she triumphed at the 2015 Postacchini Competition (Fermo, Italy) and Brahms Competition (Pörtschach, Austria). At the 2018 International Joseph Joachim Violin Competition in Hanover, Cosima received the 3rd prize as well as the prize for the best interpretation of the commissioned work. This time the French-Dutch violinist arrives in Budapest with a programme spanning the ages from the second half of the 17th century to the early 20th century: compositions by two ‘Salzburgers’, Biber and Mozart, plus Bartók’s fiendishly difficult Sonata No. 2 and Franck’s evergreen Sonata in A major. She is partnered by Russian Dina Ivanova, who won second prize at the Ricardo Viñes and Weimar International Liszt Piano Competition, and third prize at the Liszt competition in Utrecht.
