Master student Tim Brackman has won the prize for Best Performance of Aeriko, composed by Calliope Tsoupaki for the violin Competition Oskar Back 2018. Tim played together with pianist Anne Brackman.

Calliope Tsoupaki about Aeriko:
"AERIKO is a word from the Greek folk tradition and fairy tales, meaning, etherial creature, airly fairy-like celestial being. It’s the first word that comes up to me when I think of my lifetime friend and great philologer Mado Malamou. I dedicate the piece to her for all the poetic thoughts we share together."

Because of the win, Tim is now officially also a semi-finalist at the competition. The semi-finale takes place Saturday 13 January at TivoliVredenburg, Utrecht. Good luck, Tim!
