CELEBRATE THE ROYAL COUPLE OF CLASSICAL MUSIC

Standing firm as the country’s leading conductor through all the momentous changes which shook Russia during the latter half of the last century, Gennadi Rozhdestvensky is the world’s foremost interpreter of the great orchestral showpieces which emerged from Pre, Present and Post Soviet days. Rozhdestvensky and his wife, pianist Viktoria Postnikova, are regarded today as the Royal Couple of Russian music, and the Hong Kong Philharmonic is privileged to welcome them in a first-time collaboration here in an all-Tchaikovsky’s programme. In place of the drama and histrionics of the popular First, in his Second Piano Concerto Tchaikovsky turned to more subtle, personal and delicate means of expression, including a sublime passage for piano trio which stands as one of the most extraordinarily beautiful moments in the entire repertoire. Alongside this, Rozhdestvensky directs Tchaikovsky’s own highly charged re-take on the Byron epic which so inspired so many composers of the late 19th century.”
