MOSCOW, March 20 (Itar-Tass) – A "Music of Sergei Rachmaninoff" monofestival opens here on Wednesday. The National Philharmonic Orchestra of Russia (NPOR) under the baton of Vladimir Spivakov, and British pianist Peter Donohoe will perform at the opening of the festival at the Moscow International House of Music.
Third Concerto for Piano and Orchestra and First Symphony by Sergei Rachmaninoff, one of the most favourite composers in the world, will be played in Svetlanov Hall.
Not a single NPOR season could do without Rachmaninoff music. This festival's concerts are major performances for the Orchestra which cooperates with the Sergei Rachmaninoff Foundation.
British pianist Peter Donohoe, winner at the 1982 7th International Tchaikovsky Competition, will perform at the soiree together with NPOR. At that time, Donohoe shared the second prize with Vladimir Ovchinnikov. The first prize was not awarded to anyone. Donohoe is the bearer of the title of Commander of the Order of the British Empire.
Pianist Boris Berezovsky will participate in the Rachmaninoff Music monofestival on March 24. NPOR will play under the baton of People's Artiste of Russia Dmitry Liss. On March 28, guests of the festival will listen to a brilliant duet: Maria Gulegina (soprano) and pianist Alexander Gindin.
