For over a century, the Czech Philharmonic has represented the pinnacle of Czech cultural achievement. Semyon Bychkov leads an all-Tchaikovsky evening featuring pianist Kirill Gerstein performing the original, less-bombastic, more lyrical version of Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No. 1 in B-flat Minor.
The RNO has been described as “a living symbol of the best in Russian art” (Miami Herald). This return engagement features an all-Rachmaninoff program, with pianist George Li tackling the remarkable “Rach 2”.
Danish conductor Thomas Søndergård, newly installed as the RSNO’s music director, leads a crowd-pleasing program, with Olga Kern, winner of the 2001 Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, playing Rachmaninoff’s ever-popular Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini.
Celebrating its 60th anniversary, the world’s best-known chamber orchestra returns with pianist Jeremy Denk to perform notable firsts from its acclaimed repertoire—including the Albinoni Concerto Op. 5, No. 5 (the first piece the orchestra played at St Martin in the Fields Church in 1959).
