NEW YORK, January 27. /TASS/. Russian virtuoso pianist Denis Matsuev will give on Wednesday his jubilee tenth solo recital at Carnegie Hall in New York City. He disclosed the details of the upcoming concert in an interview with TASS.
"For me the American tours have been one of my favorite performances over the past 15 years, especially on such a significant stage as Carnegie Hall," Matsuev said. "Today’s performance is special. This is my tenth solo recital on this stage. In all, I’ve performed at Carnegie Hall more than 20 times, including my concerts with orchestras."
According to Matsuev, every performance in this musical theater is a special honor for him. "It opened in 1891 with a concert of the New York Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of [Pyotr] Tchaikovsky. [Sergey] Rachmaninoff and [Igor] Stravinsky also performed there," he said. "Carnegie Hall has its own special aura, special atmosphere."
Every time the musician draws up a new program for Carnegie Hall audiences never repeating himself. At this concert he will perform Tchaikovsky’s The Seasons, Robert Schumann’s Kreisleriana and three fragments from Stravinsky’s Petrushka ballet.
A Carnegie Hall spokesman told TASS that it was a great honor for the American audiences to welcome Matsuev to New York city, so the leadership of this well-known musical theater often asks the pianist to perform there. Carnegie Hall wrote on its website, "Since his triumph in 1998 at the 11th International Tchaikovsky Competition, Denis Matsuev has become a virtuoso in the grandest Russian tradition of pianism and has quickly established himself as one of the most prominent pianists of his generation."
