... The Salzburg duo :nota bene: performed the first concert of the Wiesbaden Mozart Society's season, in the assembly rooms of the "Kurhaus Wiesbaden". A well-balanced programme, with one sonata each by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Franz Schubert. This might summarise the event ­ but in fact, there was a great deal more to it, for the duo :nota bene: demonstrated once again what a fine thing it can be to make music together. Total concentration on essentials ­ thus the audience was captivated first by Alexander Vavtar's piano-playing. On this foundation, the violinist Eva Steinschaden was able to make her instrument sing. She brought to bear a seriousness which allowed each note to "speak", without losing sight of the whole. And Alexander Vavtar stood by her both strongly and sensitively. Thus Mozart's Sonata in C minor KV 303 and Schubert's Sonata in A major D 574 came as real surprises. Common to both performers is their highly differentiated style. Then there is that extra touch of mutual harmony which goes far beyond successful communication between two players.
