Russian National Orchestra with Mikhail Pletnev and Lucas Debargue
Concert 2: Tchaikovsky
Abu Dhabi Classics presents the Russian National Orchestra live at the Cultural Foundation, Abu Dhabi, on Friday 11 October 2019.
Recognised as the leading ambassador of Russian Music to Abu Dhabi, the Russian National Orchestra has a global reputation for its brilliant interpretations of Russian classical music, including the great symphonies and concertos by Shostakovich and Tchaikovsky. Under the baton of the legendary conductor, Grammy Award and European Cultural Award Winner Mikhail Pletnev, the orchestra will play a programme dedicated to Russian composers of the 19th and 20th Century. They will be joined on stage by the revelation of the 15th Tchaikovsky Piano Competition, and the young French classical pianist, Lucas Debargue.
The Russian National Orchestra along with Lucas Debargue will interpret the immensely popular and inspiring Piano Concerto No. 1 from Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky. Another highlight will be Tchaikovsky’s equally famous 5th Symphony, with which the composer, in the tradition of Beethoven, revisits the theme of fate. Audiences will also be treated to Alexander Glazunov’s music for the Ballet The Seasons and contemporary American composer Gordon Getty’s Ancestor Suite and Homework Suite. It has already been announced that the American composer will be present in Abu Dhabi for which promises to be a landmark interpretation of his compositions.
