Wiener Konzerthaus, Great Hall

Poga, Tjeknavorian / Rachmaninoff, Tchaikovsky

Horizontal Tabs

Info
Tchaikovsky first dedicated many of his works to the soloist Leopold Auer, including his Violin Concerto. Auer, however, found the work to be 'unplayable', and declined the dedication. Similar negative criticism greete d the work after its premiere performance given by Adolph Brodsky. Yet, in spite of its technical pitfalls, the work has become the most popular and well-known of all violin concertos. The programme of both concerts will be rounded off with Rachmaninov's last completed composition, the Symphonic Dances.Unfortunately, David Garrett had to cancel his apperance due to health reasons. Instead the young Austrian violinist Emmanuel Tjeknavorian will perform.
