20:00 — Philharmonie, Cologne
Piotr Ilyitch Tchaïkovski
Concerto for piano and orchestra No. 1 in B-flat minor op. 23
Petrushka, ballet burlesque in four scenes (original 1911 version)
Piano Concerto No. 1 in B minor was rejected by its dedicatee, who considered it fit for the rubbish, but it quickly became a mainstay of the concert & competition repertoire around the world. A glamorous and captivating piano personality, Khatia Buniatishvili will undoubtedly give a much-needed personal touch to this famous work.
The original recording of Petrushka by an OSR conducted by Ernest Ansermet at the very beginning of the vinyl era in 1950 propelled the orchestra to fame across the whole world; thanks to it’s musicality and exceptional recording quality for the era. The evening’s concert will present the 1911 version for large orchestra conducted by Jonathan Nott.
