12.06.2020 Royal Albert Hall POSTPONED 20.04.2021
String player virtuoso, conductor and teacher Maxim Vengerov, will celebrate 40 years on stage with a concert at the Royal Albert Hall on June 12, 2020.
And it's the best way to celebrate 40 years on stage with a concert at the Royal Albert Hall. The programme will include Beethoven’s Triple Concerto, Shostakovich’s famous Violin Concerto No1 and a work by Sarasate.
Maxim Vengerov's friends and colleagues will share the best moments of the concert with him.
Argentine-born Martha Argerich is widely considered one of the greatest pianists of the late 20th and early 21st centuries. It's an intoxicating mix of jaw-dropping technique, a wonderful sense of poetry and temperament that makes Martha Argerich perhaps the most exciting of the great pianists of our time.
Misha Maisky is one of the brightest musicians of our time and the only cellist in the world who studied with both M. Rostropovich and G. Piatigorsky. Maisky is famous for his incredible charisma and outstanding manner of performing.
Those genuinely brilliant musicians will be supported by students from the Royal College of Music, one of the world’s great conservatoires, training gifted musicians from all over the world for international careers and the Oxford Philharmonic Orchestra with its founder and music director Marios Papadopoulos, one of the leading orchestras in the UK and praised by Gramophone Magazine as ‘excellent’.
At 45 years of age and universally hailed as one of the world’s greatest living string player, numerous Grammy, Brit and Garamphone award winner Maxim Vengerov has received prestigious fellowships and honours from a number of institutions, including the Royal Academy of Music, was awarded an Honorary Visiting Fellowship at Trinity College Oxford and holds an honorary Doctor from the Royal College of Music. Maxim Vengerov was the first classical musician to be appointed Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF. He holds positions as a Professor at the Royal College of Music and the Mozarteum University Salzburg.
Vengerov has been profiled in a series of documentaries, including Playing by Heart, which was recorded by Channel Four Television and screened at the Cannes Television Festival, and Living the Dream, which was released worldwide and received the Gramophone Award for Best Documentary in 2008.
It's gonna be a concert we'll remember around here for a good long time. Don't miss the chance to be part of this year's most memorable event.
