Following an exciting tour of Japan with the Orchestre National du Capitole de Toulouse under Tugan Sokhiev and having taken a little journey to Genoa where I performed a recital at the marvellous Teatro Carlo Felice, I am now very excited about returning to the acclaimed Meisterpianisten series held at the eminent Stuttgart Liederhalle for a recital featuring works by Chopin and Prokofiev. Having performed there in 2012, I’m delighted to meet its grateful and generous audience again! Further ahead, I will be performing in Poland - my first stop will be Kraków, where I will perform Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 23 in A major, K. 488 and Grieg’s Piano Concerto in A minor, Op. 16 in the same evening at the Kraków Philharmonic with the Beethoven Academy Orchestra under Massimiliano Caldi. It’s a great joy for me to return to this charming city and to work with this orchestra of young musicians. This will be followed by a recital in Lublin. At the end of this month, I will be travelling to Stockholm to perform Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 23 in A major, K. 488 with the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra under Manfred Honeck. I feel truly fortunate to have worked with Maestro Honeck several times in the past – including with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra and the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra – and our inspiring musical encounters are always an incredible pleasure for me. The Maestro’s great personality and natural approach to music makes an absolute highlight of each and every performance! Further ahead, I will be performing Rachmaninov’s Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini with the Rostov Symphony Orchestra under Alexander Polyanichko. Later in April, I will make my debut with the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra and Christopher Warren-Green with three performances at the Blumenthal Performing Arts Centre in Charlotte featuring Chopin's Piano Concerto No. 2 Op. 21.
