Rudolf Buchbinder’s ability to make music come alive, inhabiting each phrase, is truly unique. He has set new standards in the performing arts, especially as an interpreter of the music of Beethoven. He is not afraid to admit that Beethoven’s music continues to move him to tears. Julian Rachlin’s individual style is characterised by excitement and the ability to inspire the audience. He plays a 1704 ex-Liebig Stradivarius violin.

Pianist Martin James Bartlett (1996) admits that his life changed completely when he won the title of BBC Young Musician of the Year in 2014 - victory in this competition allowed him to embark on a professional performing career, giving him the chance to travel and meet and work with inspiring musicians. The sensitivity or even sensuality of his playing is breathtaking, and his imagination overflows.
 
Bartlett played at the National Service of Thanksgiving for Queen Elizabeth II’s 90th birthday at London’s St. Paul’s Cathedral, and as part of the Chinese State Visit in 2015 he gave a private concert for the First Lady of China, Peng Liyuan. He loves jazz and has recorded with Elton John, Stevie Wonder and Nicola Benedetti, and in his Riga concert he will perform piano highlights from the 17th to 20th centuries.
