Dear concert goers,
Pietari Inkinen has unfortunately had to cancel his involvement in the concerts on June 17th and 18th, 2020. Maestro Inkinen’s absence is due to his debut at the Bayreuther Festspiele with the new production of The Ring of the Nibelung. Kazakh conductor Alan Buribayev will conduct instead. In the Bach Concerto for 2 violins, Pinchas Zukerman will be accompanied by Diana Adamyan, winner of the renowned "Menuhin Competition". The program of the concert is unchanged.
In his conversation with Robert Kraft, the composer Igor Stravinsky recalls the first concert performance of his Rite of Spring in 1913 in the Casino de Paris under the baton of Pierre Monteux, where he was triumphantly received. He remembers which other compositions were on the program: “Mozart’s Violin Concerto played by Enescu, and Bach’s Concerto for Two Violins, also played by Enescu, but I have forgotten the name of the other soloist”.
