|Event Name:||Postponed Lomazov Play Tchaikovsky|
|Event Description:||A prolific composer in many forms, Rachmaninoff wrote only three symphonies. His Second Symphony, his best-known symphony, was composed in 1906-1907, and was first heard in Moscow in 1908 with Rachmaninoff himself conducting. The work made its American debut in 1909 by the Philadelphia Orchestra with Rachmaninoff as guest conductor during his American tour. The work, in four movements, follows a traditional moderate/fast; very fast; low/easy; lively fast, sequence.
Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No.1, one of the world's most beloved, was written in 1874, and, initially, received negative criticism by a prominent, leading contemporary musician. Although composed in the space of one month, Tchaikovsky made several revisions to the work, and asked a pianistic luminary, Hans Van Bulow, to review and play the work at its premier in 1875. Von Bulow described the work as "so original, so noble, so powerful," and the world agreed. Written in the traditional concerto three movements: Allegro con molto; Andantino semplice; Allegro vivace; Allegro con fuoco, it remains one of the world's most important compositions for piano and orchestra.
Ukrainian-American pianist, Ms. Marina Lomazov, in a re-engagement with the ASO, will offer her dynamic interpretation of Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No. 1. Following her education at the Kiev Conservatory, the Juilliard School, and the Eastman School of Music, Lomazov has given major debuts in New York, Boston, Chicago, and with numerous additional, prominent symphonic orchestras throughout the country, and internationally. Her performances have been described as "dazzling," "a diva of the piano," and "simply spectacular." Those that have heard her would most certainly agree.
