Beginning of the season with the Qatar Philharmonic
Dimitri Kitaenko is starting together with the Qatar Philharmonic Orchestra in the new concert season 2015/16. On the 5th September he is conducting in Doha two masterpieces by Piotr Tchaikovsky, the virtuoso First Piano Concerto and the Fifth Symphony with its pessimistic thoughtsover fatean unattainable luck.The Russian pianist Boris Berezovsky is the soloist in the piano concerto.
On the 10th September another concert features Lilya Zilberstein as soloist in Rachmaninoff's Paganini Rhapsody. Besides this brilliant work, two very contrasting symphonies are announced: Prokofiev's First, the Classical, his fancy homage to Haydn,as well as the first symphony of Tchaikovsky's final trilogy, the Fourth, the Russian composer's agitated Symphony of Destiny.
Dimitri Kitaenko and the Qatar Philharmonic take both programs on tour, playing at the Santa Cecilia hall in Rome (with Boris Berezovsky) and at the Brucknerhaus in Linz, where the Austrian pianist Rudolf Buchbinder is to appear as soloist in Rachmaninoff's Paganini Variations.
