Boston Philharmonic Youth Orchestra: Benjamin Zander Conducting Glinka, Prokofiev, and Tchaikovsky with Alexander Korsantia, Piano

Symphony Hall

Symphony Hall, Boston, MA

"Georgian pianist Alexander Korsantia’s performances—alone, with orchestra, and in chamber music—have garnered accolades around the world, and the list of conductors he has worked with is a veritable Who’s Who. Critics everywhere have commented on his perfect technique and extraordinarily burnished tone, but perhaps what is most remarkable about him is the uniquely personal vision of everything he plays. There is never a note without a deeper intent behind it. Prokofiev’s headlong Third Piano Concerto, one of the hardest and most exhilarating in the repertory, will, for many, be their dazzling introduction to this major musician whom we are fortunate to have as a resident of Boston.

This exceptionally beautiful program will open with Glinka’s roof-raising overture to his opera Ruslan and Lyudmila"

-Benjamin Zander
