...a country (Hungary) whose population, even today, is barely over ten million has produced so many musicians and so much outstanding music. I am grateful for having been born and trained there.

Not only does this concert have Tchaikovsky’s fourth symphony on the programme, but also the largely unknown Rubinstein piano concerto. Anton Rubinstein (1829–1894) travelled the world as a pianist and conductor, while he also enjoyed considerable success as a teacher, and his works served as guidelines for Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninov. This event features the fourth concerto (1864), considered the greatest of the five concertos for piano he wrote. Enthusiasts called it ‘the first Russian piano concerto’. Soloist Schaghajegh Nosrati was born in Germany, she completed her studies there and this is where her glittering career took off. Aram Khachaturian was an Armenian composer whose career unfolded during the era of Soviet rule. His music finely blends the traditions and oriental tones of his own people with elements of Russian and European music. The suite featuring at this concert is compiled from the best parts of his ballet, Masquerade.
