Russian National Orchestra

Russian National Orchestra
In the best hands

16 November 2021, Elbphilharmonie, Great Hall

The refined Second Piano Concerto by Camille Saint-Saëns, whose death anniversary is the 100th on 16 December 2021, was written for Anton Rubinstein in just three weeks in 1868. "Since I had had no time to practise it for the performance, I played it very badly," Rubinstein wrote in his memoirs - whether coquetry or ruthless self-analysis is uncertain. What is certain, however, is that the highly gifted composer and musicologist Saint-Saëns can rest assured that his work is in the best hands with Mikhail Pletnev! The former winner of the Moscow Tchaikovsky Competition has had it in his repertoire for many years. And his Russian National Orchestra, founded in 1990, is at his side with its usual sovereignty - on the podium: the youngest scion of the Järvi conducting dynasty.
