Syrinx Concert Toronto May 31, 2020
Wolfgang David
The Washington Post wrote that Mr. David "scaled the heights of musicmaking and The Strad described his playing as emotionally wide-ranging as one could hope for.
In the space of a few short years, Wolfgang David has ensconced himself on the international stage, both as a recitalist, and as a guest soloist with many leading orchestras such as the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra, Johannesburg Philharmonic Orchestra, Berne Symphony Orchestra, New York Virtuosi etc.  The winner of many competitions and prizes, David has performed in major halls such as Konzerthaus and Musikverein Hall in Vienna, Carnegie Hall in New York, Cerritos Center in Los Angeles, the Wigmore Hall in London, Victoria Hall in Geneva, and Philharmonie in Cologne. Highlights of his career included concerts at the Great Assembly Hall of the United Nations in New York in the presence of Secretary General Kofi Annan, and a concert in Bangkok, given for the Queen of Thailand.

Wolfgang David performs on a violin built by Carlo Bergonzi, Cremona after 1724, on exclusive loan to him from the Austrian National Bank.

Takeshi Kakehashi
Born in Tokyo on August 2, 1977, to musician parents, Takeshi Kakehashi lost his eyesight to childhood cancer just a month after birth. He would always stop crying when listening to music, however, and could reproduce melodies accurately, and began using the piano in lieu of toys. He took up piano lessons at four and a half years old and went on to study composition.  

In 1990, he left Japan for Europe, and entered the preliminary course of the University of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna, Austria. In 1994 he won first prize in the International Competition of the Blind and Partially Sighted Musicians in the Czech Republic, as well as winning the Ettlingen International Competition for Young Pianists (B category) in Germany as the youngest participant, and his rich musical skills are recognized. In 1995 he won second prize at the Stravinsky Awards International Competition for children and young adults in the United States. He has since gone on to win other international prizes and in 2000 was awarded a special prize by the mayor of Warsaw, on the occasion of the Frederic Chopin International Piano Competition. As well as the foremost Japanese orchestras  the NHK Symphony Orchestra, Yomiuri Nippon Symphony Orchestra, New Japan Philharmonic Orchestra, etc., Kakehashi has performed with orchestras around the world including the Prague Symphony Orchestra, St. Petersburg Academic Symphony Orchestra, Orchestre National de France, Dresdner and the  Kapellsolisten, Mozarteum Orchester Salzburg.

Their program includes the music of Beethoven, Schumann, Ravel and Canadian composer Glick.
