Performing at Broward Center for the Performing Arts / Au-Rene Theater (Feb 18 - Feb 18)
Founded in 1882, the St. Petersburg Philharmonic holds pride of place as Russia's oldest and most admired orchestra, famed for its warm and burnished tone and rhythmic precision. That warmth and precision comes to the fore in a ravishing exploration of musical color by Rimsky-Korsakov, and a recent work by the acclaimed Georgian composer Giya Kancheli.
The Philharmonic is joined by pianist Denis Kozhukhin whose fame is already considerable thanks to a string of medals at international competitions. His greatest appeal was summed by Le Soir in Paris: "There is a joy in his playing that drives him right to the very essence of . . . a score." Still under 30 years of age, he is at that magical level where technical problems are moot, where his playing breathes with the music and his youthful energy illuminates even so well known as score as Tchaikovsky's breathtaking piano concerto.
