On 23 June, 2021 at the Tchaikovsky Concert Hall, the Moscow State Academic Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Pavel Kogan, within the framework of the philharmonic subscription № 24 "Music palette", will present a magnificent unforgettable program of the most popular works by Bedřich Smetana, a Czech composer, pianist and conductor, one of the greatest musicians of the Czech Republic, who is considered the founder of the national composing school. He was the first composer who use Czech folk stories and motives in his compositions. The first opera entirely in Czech language (“The Brandenburgers in Bohemia”) is also written by his pen. Smetana's creation had a huge impact on the Czech composers of subsequent generations - Antonin Dvořák, Zdenek Fibich, and others. The symphonic poem "Vltava" ("The Moldau") has become the unofficial Czech national anthem. You can also listen to works by Frederic Chopin, Sergei Rachmaninoff - Russian composer, pianist and conductor. Rachmaninov synthesized in his work the principles of the St. Petersburg and Moscow schools of composition (as well as the traditions of Western European music) and created his own original style which subsequently influenced both Russian and world music of the 20th century.
The conductor of the concert will be one of the most respected Russian conductors of our day – Vassily Sinaisky. Soloist – Konstantin Emelyanov (Piano), Laureate of the XVI International Tchaikovsky Competition.
