Why else would they re-unite for the 2016 Concert in the Waldbühne, so shortly after finishing a concert tour together?
After all, it's only been a couple of months since they performed together in Dresden, Berlin, Dortmund and Vienna. The concerts received rave reviews from the press, with Austrian newspaper Der Standard taking a bow and stating that, impossibly, everything about their interpretation of Tchaikovsky's 5th Symphony seemed to be just perfect, and that Batiashvili even managed to top of the orchestra's zest with the Shostakovich Violin Concerto, all the while showcasing her complete musical mastery.
So does it come as a surprise that the Berliner Philharmoniker invited those two to join them for their highly beloved Concert from the Waldbühne in June 2016?
Our production team - that much we can reveal - was through the roof when they learned that they would get to work with such amazing artists, and they are already busy making all the necessary arrangements to ensure that people all over the world can experience this fantastic concert.
They are the world's best orchestra. He is one of the most accomplished and admired conductors of his time. She is among the most promising and talented young violinist of her age: The Berliner Philharmoniker, Sir Simon Rattle and Vilde Frang.
So there is every reason to be certain that the Europakonzert from Røros, Norway on 01 May 2016 will be an exceptional musical experience. Together, the artists will showcase a repertoire featuring works by Beethoven, Mendelssohn and - of course - Grieg.
Our production department has travelled to Norway several times over the past few months - scouting locations, meeting our Scandinavian colleagues - and also simply enjoying the stunning landscape and the beautiful town of Røros.
So do make sure you save the date!
