Autumn Chamber Music Festival. Mozart, Mendelssohn and Bellini

06 Oct
The Amsterdam Royal Concertgebow's Alexei Ogrinchuk calls the oboe the physically most-complicated instrument; it has thus even earned an entry in the Guinness Book of World Records. Mastery of the oboe and its accompanying artistry were the efforts of his pedagogues in both Moscow and Paris - at the same conservatories attended by such conducting luminaries as Valeriy Gergiyev and Mariss Jansons. Ogrinchuk calls his desire to conduct an artistic necessity, and here we will experienced him both as conductor and oboe soloist in a program of Mozart, Mendelssohn and Bellini.

Raymonda

07 Oct
This work by genius Marius Petipa represents the artist’s rebirth in the twilight of his life. The Master created "Raymonda" at the age of 80 as the quintessence of his rich life. The plot is about a knight who embarks on a crusade and his bride. Dances by Raymonda and her friends appear as an accolade to female beauty and the multicoloured gamut of her feelings, while the entrance of sheikh Abdu-Rakhman and his suite brings Oriental inebriation and passion to the ballet, briefly stirring up the admirable harmony of Raymonda's world. LNO production transports the viewers into the wondrous atmosphere of the Middle Ages.
