Miroslav Kultyshev will perform the most famous Tchaikovsky's opus, whose 175th anniversary was widely celebrated last year – First Piano Concerto.
Created in 1875, this concert immediately won the public acclaim and was praised by critics, despite the fact that the legendary Nikolai Rubinstein, whom was devoted that piece, did not initially approve it. Subsequently, Tchaikovsky dedicated that concert to the famous German pianist Hans von Bülow, first performed this masterpiece in Boston, USA. Later, the premiere took place in St. Petersburg and Moscow. Russian pianist Gustav Kross played solo in St. Petersburg, while Sergey Taneyev played in Moscow under the Nikolay Rubinstein, who changed his mind about the concert.
Powerfull chords open this masterpiece as the "calling card" of this concert. This bright hymnal theme creates a special, elevated temper, which is set off by a more relaxed the piece`s second part. At the end this holiday theme continues as Tchaikovsky retains the rich picture of Russian and Ukrainian folk themes.
