Accompanied by the National Symphony Orchestra of Ukraine under the direction of conductor Yuriy Litun, the well-known pianist Pavlo Kachnov will perform the Second Piano Concerto by Camille Saint-Saens.
At the beginning of this work you can hear a hint of Bach's organ works, and in the finale - an aria from Rossini's most famous opera. This work has an interesting history. It is known that Saint-Saens composed the concert in almost half a month. The premiere took place in Paris: the composer became the first performer of the solo part, and the orchestra was conducted by Anton Rubinstein. The author was dissatisfied with his own performance, but Ferenc Liszt was one of the first to give a very high rating of this Piano Concerto. To this day, this concerto is the one of the most popular works of Saint-Saens.
This evening's program will be complemented by the Symphony No. 4 of Robert Schumann and the Sinfonia Concertante of Dmytro Bortniansky, orchestrated by Vsevolod Sirenko.
D. Bortnyansky - Sinfonia Concertante in B Flat Major (orchestrated by Vs. Sirenko)
K. Saint-Saens - Piano Concerto № 2 in G minor, Op. 22
R. Schumann - Symphony № 4 in D minor, Op. 120
