Description

Program:

Dmitri Shostakovich: Festive Overture, Op. 96

Camille Saint-Saëns: Piano Concerto No. 5 in F Major, Op. 103

Sergei Rachmaninoff: Symphony No. 2, Op. 27

One of today’s most sought-after soloists, Jean-Yves Thibaudet has the rare ability to combine poetic musical sensibilities with dazzling technical prowess. His talent at coaxing subtle and surprising colors and textures from each work he plays has led The New York Times to exclaim that “every note he fashions is a pearl…the joy, brilliance and musicality of his performance could not be missed.”

The Russian National Orchestra was founded in 1990 by pianist and conductor Mikhail Pletnev and today is widely recognized as one of the world’s top orchestras. Of its debut at the BBC Proms in London, the Evening Standard_ wrote, “They played with such captivating beauty that the audience gave an involuntary sigh of pleasure.” The RNO is also described as “a living symbol of the best in Russian art” (Miami Herald_), “as close to perfect as one could hope for” (Trinity Mirror), and “astoundingly virtuosic” (Glasgow Herald).
