The next concert of the National Philharmonic Orchestra of Russia will take place in the Rakhmaninoff Hall at “Philharmonia-2” on April 25 as part of the “Romantic Concerts” Subscription Series. The main attraction of the evening is the participation of the members of the NPR's conductor-trainee group Anna Rakitina, Arsenty Tkachenko, Pyotr Gladysh, Dmitry Matvienko and Sergey Akimov. They will present the works they have chosen to perform in a logically built program, in which Spanish, Mexican and French musical traditions are compared and intertwined.
The NPR conductor-trainee group is an exceptional, highly important venture of the Orchestra, meant to support talented young musicians and provide conditions for their artistic fulfillment and professional growth. It goes together with the work of the Vladimir Spivakov Charity Foundation and the Maestro's other projects designed to discover new names and help those who may personify the future of the performing arts.
The concert will also feature clarinetist Artur Naziullin, a Honored Artist of Bashkortostan, who, along with his concert activities, heads the Bashkir Branch of the Vladimir Spivakov Foundation; and pianist Zlata Chochieva, a Honored Artist of the Republic of North Ossetia, an Assistant Professor to Jacques Rouvier at the Salzburg Mozarteum University. Pianist Stephen Kovacevich ranked Zlata as “one of the most interesting and unusual pianists today. She has superb technical abilities, but it is her personal intuition in the music she plays that is special.”
