Berlin Philharmonic has uploaded on its YouTube channel a part of the concert on December, 22, 2010 where Denis Matsuev and the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra headed by Valery Gergiev play Rachmaninoff, Piano concerto no.3. The concerto is considered to be one of the most difficult compositions for the piano, and to hear it performed so successfully is a rare chance. A year ago all the components were brought together: the hall of the Berlin Philharmonic with an unusual interior and unique acoustics; the Berlin Philharmonic orchestra which is year after year reckoned as one of the best orchestras in the world by the “Gramophone” magazine; maestro Valery Gergiev, who is familiar to the audience of the Berlin Philharmonic since 1993, and soloist Denis Matsuev, who played with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra for the first time and produced in this sense a splendid debut.
The part of the concert is available here.
You can watch the full concert on the site of the Berlin Philharmonic.
We hope that watching the concert will be a nice beginning of 2012 for you!
