Vassily Sinaisky conductor
Pavel Kolesnikov piano
Beethoven Piano Concerto No. 3
Tchaikovsky Manfred Symphony
Beethoven’s Third Piano Concerto owed a significant debt to Mozart, particularly his dark and brooding Piano Concerto No. 24, which Beethoven particularly admired. But the Third Concerto also marks a point of departure from Mozart’s Classical soundworld, made possible by the advances in piano technology. The exciting young Siberian virtuoso Pavel Kolesnikov, recently a BBC New Generation Artist, offers Nottingham a first glimpse of his brilliance. Tchaikovsky’s Manfred was his most ambitious orchestral work. At first reluctant to take on Byron’s epic poem, the outcome was one of Romanticism’s most impressive statements, the extremity of Byron’s verse, which the poet himself described as being of “a very wild, metaphysical, and inexplicable kind”, expressed in music that’s both powerfully evocative and thrillingly virtuosic.
