Martina Filjak, pianist


Concerts in Germany

During May and June Martina Filjak performed the 2nd concertos by Brahms and Rachmaninoff in Aachen and Kaiserslautern. The concerts were warmly received both by the audience and the press.

End of June, Martina performed the 2nd Piano Concerto by Rachmaninoff in Kaiserslautern. On that occasion the reviewer of the 'Rheinpfalz' noted: ''She delivered big cinematic emotions without ever becoming 'kitschy'. Pathos and Emphasis were consciously employed, but without any exaggeration.... a melancholy of disturbingly sweet beauty demonstrated by Martina Filjak with huge sensibility and fantastic technique.''
