Blog # 37

Today we are opening the season with "the Israeli-Siberian" orchestra, it is fair to call it so, because it is still fresh in memory how IPO came to Irkutsk for participation in the festival "Stars on Baikal". That was a great event not only for Irkutsk, but the whole of Russia, as well as the diving of Maestro Meta in the waters of lake Baikal.

Everyone is excited. Musicians from IPO come to me to talk about what they remembered during the trip, to make a declaration of love to Irkutsk and lake Baikal and to say that they definitely want to visit Irkutsk again. Maestro Mehta said that when we build a new concert hall, he with IPO will definitely come and play at its opening. So that is settled. And we know that Zubin Mehta’s word is law.

IPO is an outstanding, versatile team led by a unique man, Zubin Mehta, with whom I was fortunate enough not only to perform, but also to talk and be friends. This season opening concert in Tel Aviv for me gives the start to a series of six concerts where I am going to perform Third Concerto for piano and orchestra by S. V. Rachmaninoff and Third Concerto by L. Beethoven.

First reviews on Denis Matsuev's concert in Barbican Hall. London Evening Standard

The highlight, though, was Prokofiev’s Third Piano Concerto. This is not for the faint-hearted pianist; it demands muscular dexterity and an ability to deliver, not only a quality of ardent longing but also something of the cocktail lounge. Matsuev responded with thrilling virtuosity, his fingerwork faultless, his rhythmic drive flexible and imposing.

Music Festival STARS ON BAIKAL 2014

As always Irkutsk welcomes gathering of classic music stars in September. Denis Matsuev’s festival “Stars on Bailkal” starts these days. This year festival includes performances with the Israel Philharmonic orchestra under baton of Zubin Mehta, this is the first time ISO comes to Irkutsk. Vladimir Spivakov also comes to the festival right after celebrating his jubilee in Moscow. Thanks to eloquence of Denis Matsuev, maestro Spivakov is going to restart his career as a violinist during this Festival, which is for sure very important for world music industry. 

The show takes place at two sites: in Zagursky Musical theatre and in the Concert Hall of the Irkutsk Philharmonic. The opening was made by the young pianist, Okui Shio performed during the Grand opening of the Festival. She is only nine years old and she is familiar to viewers of Kultura channel as a participant of the TV-contest "the Nutcracker". Okui Shio performed Beethoven’s First Concert. Violinist Ivan Pochekin played the Second concerto of Niccolo Paganini. Denis Matsuev was the soloist in "Blue Rhapsody" by Gershwin.

Igor Belza, son of Svyatoslav Belza, world famous TV-anchorman, music critic, music researcher and historian, who passed away just over three months ago, becomes the compere of festivals’ concerts.

As Svyatoslav Belza had been the host of the Festival Stars on Baikal for many years, this year’s Festival Denis Matsuev dedicated to him.

"It was a unique person, a man of unique dignity, a musketeer. In his youth he was keen on fencing. A man of amazing emotional subtlety. And there was something of a Siberian in him, that's for sure. His warmth, his kindness, and simplicity in communication with different people, whether it is high-ranking people or any person that comes to him after the concert," says pianist Denis Matsuev.
