September is traditionally the month of the regional editions of the “Vladimir Spivakov invites ...” Festival. In September 2019, the Maestro and his orchestra will be hosted in Orenburg and Ufa. The concerts will feature young stars of the music art including the winners of international competitions María Dueñas (violin, Spain), Ivan Bessonov (piano), Aigul Akhmetshina (mezzo-soprano), a member of the ROH Jette Parker Young Artists Programme at Covent Garden, and Yaroslav Abaimov (tenor), soloist of the E. Kolobov “Novaya Opera” Theatre in Moscow. Maestro Vladimir Spivakov himself will be on the conductor podium all five evenings (see Events). The NPR’s Russian tour is part of the All-Russian Philharmonic Seasons Project of the Moscow Philharmonic Society and the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation.
The NPR concert on September 14 will open the 76th concert season of the Orenburg Regional Philharmonic Society. Under Vladimir Spivakov's baton there will be performed works by Mozart and Mendelssohn (soloist - María Dueñas). The program of the second concert on September 15 is fully devoted to Beethoven's music (soloist - Ivan Bessonov). These two programs will be also presented in Ufa.
The Ufa fourth edition of the “Vladimir Spivakov invites ...” Festival (September 17-19) will be held at the Bashkortostan State Concert Hall, with the National Philharmonic Orchestra of Russia once again being the star of the concerts. Vladimir Spivakov will also present appealing young soloists to the Bashkir public, some of whom are already known to Ufa music lovers: María Dueñas, Spanish violinist well remembered there for her brilliant victory at the Vladimir Spivakov Competition in 2018, and Aigul Akhmetshina, a native of Bashkortostan, glorifying her country with her successes in the Russian capital and in Europe, becoming a member of the ROH Jette Parker Young Artists Programme. The Ufa Festival edition will open with an opera gala, featuring popular fragments from Italian and French operas.
The Russian tour of the National Philharmonic Orchestra of Russia is going on. Within a month, Vladimir Spivakov and his collective will perform in Voronezh, Rostov-on-Don, Krasnodar and the towns of the Orenburg Region (see below). Anna Aglatova (soprano), a star of the Bolshoi Theatre, and Polina Shamaeva (mezzo), a soloist of the Kolobov Novaya Opera Theatre, will take part in the concerts of the tour. They will sing (with the Orchestra) arias from the operas by Rossini, Donizetti, Massenet, Bizet, Saint-Saens and popular masterpieces of Delibes, Jimenez and Lehar.
In the second part of the concerts, Vladimir Spivakov will present to the audience his interpretation of his most beloved works by Russian composers - Rachmaninoff's Symphonic Dances and suites from Tchaikovsky's ballets.
The NPR's Russian tours are held within the framework of the All-Russian Philharmonic Seasons Project of the Moscow Philharmonic Society and the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation.
