Wherever violinist María Dueñas, born in Granada in 2002, performs, she delights audiences and the press. She is rightly celebrated as the talent of the century. The Spanish-Austrian musician not only impresses with her astonishing artistic maturity and a beauty of sound that is second to none, but also impresses with her self-composed cadenzas.

Deutsche Grammophon hired her straight away after winning first prize at the Yehudi Menuhin Competition 2021 and awarded her an exclusive contract. Her first album is dedicated to Beethoven's only violin concerto - the very work with which she will perform on the evening. At their side: the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra with its newly appointed chief conductor Kazuki Yamada, who takes on a great legacy as the successor to Sir Simon Rattle, Andris Nelsons and Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla.
