The 2019/2020 season will be presented by the works of the great masters of the second half of the 19th century - Scandinavian composers Edward Grieg, Jan Sibelius, and Russians - Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky and Alexander Konstantinovich Glazunov. The conductor will be an unusually talented musician, Professor of the Central Conservatory of Music of Beijing, Music Director and Chief Conductor of the Kuzbass Governor's Symphony Orchestra (Kemerovo) Tao Lin.
An amazing epic fresco - the symphonic poem of the Finnish composer Jan Sibelius “Finland” will open the first act. It paints a picture of spiritual life, expectations, and hopes of the Finnish people in restrained, even severe colors.
The Concert for Piano and Orchestra of the Norwegian composer Edward Grieg also distinguishes by the unique national color. Three of its parts have a harmonious romantic drama: a passionate impulse of feelings and bright lyrics in the first part; deep inner concentration in the second; and a brilliant folk-genre picture in the third. The solo part will be performed by one of the leading American pianists of our times Derek Han.
Admiring the talent of Grieg, his close associate, Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky in 1888 dedicated to him the overture-fantasy "Hamlet" written under the impression of the piece of the same name by William Shakespeare. The concert suite from the ballet "Raymonda" by Alexander Konstantinovich Glazunov accomplished this immensely eventful evening. The beauty of the orchestral score, spectacular figurativeness and melodic prodigality are combined here with a dramatic contraposition of contrasting poles - the sublime “European” and the “Oriental” attractive in its brilliance.
