Featuring Anton Batagov, Alexei Lubimov, Polina Osetinskaya
The audience will find out the program of the concert just near the very end of it, right after applause, and the reason is not playing with the public or checking its polymathy. Maestro Teodor Currentzis, art director of the Festival, believes that the 78 stereotypes that arise while a musical composition is being announced prevent the public from hearing music’s real nature.
Many believe that they love Mozart and Tchaikovsky and do not like Schoenberg and Messiaen, but what if they do not know who wrote the music they are listening to at the moment? Three prominent pianists of our time, Anton Batagov, Alexei Lubimov, and Polina Osetinskaya, are renowned for their unexpected and broadest repertoire searches. At the Piano-Gala night they share their beloved compositions with the audience, and the public is welcomed to follow it with their hearts and not minds.
