The musicians:
Kamila Glass - violin
has been a permanent member of the DSO (German Symphony Orchestra of Berlin) since 2002. For the last seven years she has been the artistic director and co-organizer (with Tina Horne) of the chamber music series Serenata Berlin for which she has invited some of the best classical musicians not only from Berlin but from all over Europe and more recently from Israel, to play in Sa Taronja. Kamila Glass completed her violin studies with distinction, first under Prof. Lawrynowicz at the Chopin Academy in Warsaw, then with Prof. Gronich and Prof. Haiberg at the University of Arts in Berlin.
She became interested in chamber music very early on and while still in Poland picked up prizes in violin and chamber music competitions. Her violin skills were "fine-tuned" during her time with the Amadeus Quartet in London.Since then she has played with passionate skill and enthusiasm with many different musicians in various ensembles. From 1998 to 2000, she held a fellowship with the DSO Berlin. A full member since 2002, she now helps to run the DSO Academy and organizes and teaches chamber music.
Kamila Glass plays a violin by Claude Augustin Miremont (Paris, 1872).
Jakob Spahn - cello
was born in 1983 in Berlin. He studied cello under Prof. David Geringas since 2005, and since the winter 2009/10 with Prof. Claudio Bohórquez at the "Hanns Eisler" Music school in Berlin. He also took part in master classes with Frans Helmerson, Heinrich Schiff and Bernard Greenhouse. He has won numerous national and international competitions. Semi-finalist at the International ARD Competition in Munich recently, he was awarded the special "Alice Rosner Foundation" prize. As a scholarship holder from the German National Music Awards he was invited to take part in "Concerts by young artists." He was supported by the German Foundation for Studies and the association Yehudi Menuhin Live Music Now Association. Additionally, during the past two years Jakob Spahn has also been a fellow of the Karajan Academy of the Berlin Philharmonic. As a chamber musician he has performed with renowned artists such as Wolfgang Meyer, Leonidas Kavakos, Mitsuko Uchida and Lang Lang. From the 2011/2012 season Jakob Spahn is solo cellist at the Bavarian State Opera in Munich. Spahn has made concert tours through Europe, Asia, Central and South America.
François Lambret - piano
The French pianist François Lambret, a native of Paris, studied both at the Paris Conservatory (CNSMDP) and at the University of the Arts (UdK) in Berlin, where the many fruitful musical collaborations he enjoyed have left an enduring mark.
He has studied with many great artists including Menahem Pressler, Ts'ong Fou, Pierre-Laurent Aimard, Vladimir Mendelssohn, Ralf Gothóni and Hatto Beyerle, and worked with renowned ensembles such as the Ysaÿe and the Artemis Quartet. Together with another passionate chamber musician he founded the Paul Klee Trio, an ensemble which has won several international awards, including first prize in the Trondheim competition in 2011. The trio toured the UK, Germany, Austria, Italy, Norway, Canada and Australia. His first recording of Alexandre Guilmant's works for piano and harmonium with the harmonist Kurt Lueders was received with much critical acclaim and was awarded "5 Diapasons". His performances are regularly broadcast by the Japanese TV station NHK, France Musique and German radio. In 2013 his programme includes concerts in Paris (Cité de la Musique and the Salle Pleyel), Tokyo (Topan Hall) and Nagoya (Shirakawa Hall), as well as performances in many European festivals where he is a regular participant (Stavanger Festival, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern Festival, HSBC Cheltenham Music Festival, Tivoli Concert Series, Venice Palazzetto Bru Zane, La Roque d'Anthéron Festival, European Chamber Music Academy).

Another great chamber music evening on the 26th. We thank the world-class musicians that Kamila Glass, tireless organiser of the series and violinist of the DSO, has brought to us over the last many years. These great musicians have offered their talent as a donation to Sa Taronja, and we have been treated to the most beautiful and challenging compositions by many great composers in the intimate setting of our humble ex-chicken shed.
We are hoping for a big audience for this wonderful evening of Russian composers, featuring works by Shostakovitch and Glasunov as well as Tchaikovsky's first and only trio for piano, cello and violin. A romantic and elegaic work of breathtaking lyricism, this is considered one of his most difficult compositions for piano. We are lucky to have the celebrated young pianist and pasionate chamber-music lover François Lambret to play it, along with the talented young cellist Jakob Spahn, and are particularly delighted that Serenata-Berlin organiser Kamila Glass will be with us, on violin.
