Lahav Shani plays Prokofiev

Symphonic06 Jun '24 - 09 Jun '24(Past)

Making music on the cutting edge.


“Perhaps the greatest venture I ever undertook,” says Lahav Shani of the first time he conducted Prokofiev's Piano Concerto No. 3 from behind the keyboard. In an empty room, alone in front of the cameras, it was already a challenge. Now, with an audience present, making music is on the cutting edge. Reckless? Strauss' Don Quixote gives the answer: defying the doubters is true heroism.

To defy the doubters
that is true heroism
Don Quixote is one of the highlights, with soloists from our own ranks. I support the role of dummy Sancho Panza with the bass clarinet. Playing with character, I look forward to that.
