Program

conductor Valery Gergiev | piano Lahav Shani | orchestra Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra

Escaich Ritual Opening (world premiere) | Stravinsky Concerto for Piano and Wind Instruments | Debussy La mer | Ravel Bolero

A unique opening concert: Chief Conductor and top-flight pianist Lahav Shani now appears as a soloist with his own orchestra under the baton of former Chief Conductor Valery Gergiev. This concert also features the world premiere of a commissioned work by Thierry Escaich and closes with the famous Bolero: as if seen through a kaleidoscope, the same melody is successively given a different instrumentation.

The world premiere of Escaich was written with the support of the Sylvia Tóth Compositiefonds for the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra and the Rotterdam Philharmonic Gergiev Festival.
