In fact, the opening of the season, a Trustee of the Philadelphia Symphony orchestra and its leader, Yannick Nezhe-Sagano, was dedicated to Leonard Bernstein: in 2018, its centenary.

Segan, Coria, Lando, lang lang on stage at Carnegie hall

But between the music Suite from “On the Waterfront” (“On the shore”) and Symphonic dances from “West side story” placed “the Rhapsody in style a Blues” Gershwin, inviting the soloist lang lang. A big name, and in such popular opus, always good for gala.

But in the spring lang lang was having problems with the left hand. He canceled all of his performances in the months ahead, but gala at Carnegie hall have not given up and invited the partners of the famous jazz musician chick Corea and young fellows of his Foundation Maxim Lando. After a long export at the stage of pianos in one of them sat lang lang with Lando (he was supposed to play the role of the left hand of lang lang, but often played two), and for the other – Corea, clarinet brought his famous glissandiruyuschih theme and Rhapsody began to unfold, and then stumbling about not too coherent, stylistically variegated and nothing but the left hand of lang lang, godivsheysya just for turning pages and ecstatic strokes which are not justified by the Commonwealth. One big Cadenza-improvisation Corea and juicy violins play in the Central with a triumphant lyrical theme, bringing a few moments of joy, not saved.

With music by Bernstein, too, not all was well: lovely in the film the cauldron with unforgettable Marlon Brando in the title role in a concert version, it was not so interesting, and in Dances from West side story orchestra too clamped in volume and short in the category of “nuances”.

The concert went on without interruption and was worse than the upcoming season, in which we can have many excellent programs with the participation of Daniil Trifonov, Janine Jensen (they’re both heroes traditional “Perspectives”), Martha Argerich, andrás Schiff, Evgeny Kissin orchestra of Accademia Santa Cecilia (with Antonio Pappano), the Mariinsky theatre, the Vienna Philharmonic and the Bavarian state Opera (under the direction of a superstar among today’s conductors Kirill Petrenko) and other outstanding performers.

The next day, the concert season was opened by hall, 92 Street Y, much more modest in its capabilities, which, however, does not prevent him to offer you a great classical program, not too radical, but with performers of the highest class. So the season is out. Her character was the cellist Mischa Maisky the soloist in the Sonata “Arpeggione” by Schubert (transcription for cello and strings). A pupil of Rostropovich and Piatigorsky, winner of the Tchaikovsky competition in 1966, an Israeli and a citizen of the world, living in Brussels, next year will celebrate its 70th anniversary. Age if affected, in particular freedom and in this wise refinement of interpretation.

Cello Venetian masters of the XVIII century, with which the musician does not leave for more than 40 years, he sounds remarkably voluminous, rich and warm (even in the most delicate pianissimo, of which there were many), and the parallel with the human voice, ad nauseam, when you talk about the cello, it is absolutely relevant: the may “pronounced” melodies of Schubert something almost conversational tone, then as the luxurious vocal cantilena, contriving many replays never be repeated. A chamber orchestra without a conductor “Orpheus” was in this ensemble extremely sensitive, catching any changes in dynamics and tempo, which was the soloist, and in General sounded better than the Arensky Variations on a theme by Tchaikovsky.

Tchaikovsky dominated the program has completed his Serenade for strings, and the may and “Orpheus” for an encore he performed his Andante Cantabile from the First Quartet.
