Vilde Frang, 29-year-old violinist from Norway, “is clearly a new star in the violin firmament” according to The Guardian (UK). Frang is an exclusive Warner Classics artist and her recordings have received numerous awards, including Gramophone Magazine's "Editors Choice.” Frang was unanimously awarded the Credit Suisse Young Artist Award in 2012 and made her debut with the Vienna Philharmonic under Bernard Haitink at the Lucerne Festival.

Born in Norway in 1986, Vilde was engaged by Mariss Jansons at the age of 12 to debut with Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra. She has worked with famed pianist Mitsuko Uchida as a 2007 Borletti-Buitoni Trust Fellowship winner and is an alumna of the Anne-Sophie Mutter Foundation. Vilde Frang performs on a 1864 Jean-Baptiste Vuillaume violin.

Michail Lifits, winner of the 57th Ferruccio Busoni International Piano Competition in Bolzano (2009), is praised for "his inspirational tone and his wise maturity" as well as for "the breathtaking beauty of his playing." In 2011, Lifits signed to Decca Classics. His debut CD with piano works by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was released in 2012 and was acclaimed by critics worldwide. Lifits was born in 1982 in Tashkent, Uzbekistan. He studied at the University for Music and Drama in Hanover and at the International Piano Academy Incontri col Maestro in Imola (Italy).
