Rncm Conducting Showcase With Manchester Camerata I
Date: Saturday 21st May 2011 19:30
Venue: RNCM, Manchester
Maria Molund conductorGergely Madaras conductorOlga Jegunova piano
The music of Beethoven links our two concerts with students from the RNCM’s conducting courses. Latvian pianist Olga Jegunova will perform Beethoven’s Third Piano Concerto, a stormy, dynamic work rich in turbulent emotions. Currently studying on the RNCM International Artist Diploma course, Jegunova is already a multiple prize-winner and seasoned performer.
The concert ends with Beethoven’s Second Symphony, a piece that grew out of a period of intense despair as the composer struggled to come to terms with his increasing deafness. However, it is a work that bears little sign of this torment – rather, it is full of life and optimism.
