6 concert with Tugan Sokhiev

  • Tugan Sokhiev and Nikolai Lugansky

    Tugan Sokhiev and Nikolai Lugansky

    Russian music should be melancholy and voluminous – or at least that’s the cliché. Tugan Sokhiev, Music Director of the Bolshoi Theatre, provides proof of the contrary. Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade develops oriental magic and impressionist richness of colour, while a tongue in cheek charm repeatedly shines through in Rachmaninov’s Paganini Rhapsody, regardless of its tremendous virtuosity. Nikolai Lugansky will debut as piano soloist with the Berliner Philharmoniker.

  • Tugan Sokhiev and Jean-Yves Thibaudet

    Tugan Sokhiev and Jean-Yves Thibaudet

    Although French music often comes across as rather fragile, there are also powerful counterexamples. Thus, César Franck’s D minor Symphony and Gabriel Fauré’s Pelléas et Mélisande radiate – besides French flair – a Beethovenian will to find the right form. Maurice Ravel, in contrast, strikes a crisp, jazzy tone in the Finale of his G major piano concerto, as one might more readily expect from Gershwin. Tugan Sokhiev conducts; at the piano is Jean-Yves Thibaudet.

    Both forward-looking and intelligible to all – that’s what music was intended to be in the Soviet Union. In this concert from December 2014 you can hear works that accord ingeniously with this challenging mission: Prokofiev’s Second Violin Concerto, with Vadim Gluzman as the soloist, and Shostakovich’s Fifth Symphony, probably his most popular one. The conductor is Tugan Sokhiev, music director of Moscow’s Bolshoi Theatre.

  • Tugan Sokhiev and Hilary Hahn

    Tugan Sokhiev and Hilary Hahn

    Hilary Hahn caused a sensation in the music world at the end of the 1990s as a young violinist who enthralled audiences not only with her perfect technique, but also with her consummate musicianship and creative powers. In this performance of Vieuxtemps’s absurdly virtouso Violin Concerto No. 4, she is accompanied by Tugan Sokhiev who also conducts Tchaikovsky’s rarely heard Manfred Symphony in the second part of the concert.

  • Liszt’s Piano Concerto No. 1 with Tugan Sokhiev and Boris Berezovsky

    Liszt’s Piano Concerto No. 1 with Tugan Sokhiev and Boris Berezovsky

    Boris Berezovsky – “Ultra-virtuoso of the piano” (Der Tagesspiegel) – performs Franz Listz’s Piano Concerto No. 1 with conductor Tugan Sokhiev – a work that moves confidently between raging fury and delicate cantabile and at the same time extends the expression and tone of the piano to the limits of possibility. Other items on the programme include Rachmaninov’s Symphonic Dances and Albert Roussel’s far too little-known ballet Bacchus et Ariane.
