After his celebrated return to Santa Cecilia in Rome last week, Alexander Sladkovsky takes the stage at Saydashev Concert Hall (Kazan, Russia) today to conduct Elgar Cello Concerto and Dvořák Symphony No. 7 with Daniel Müller-Schott and the Tatarstan National Orchestra. The concert will be transmitted live on Medici.tv at 5:30 PM (CEST).
Since 2010 Alexander Sladkovsky is the Artistic Director and Chief Conductor of the Tatarstan National Symphony Orchestra in the city of Kazan, which transformed into one of the finest orchestras in Russia. “It became an absolute necessity to talk about the “Kazan Miracle” created by maestro Sladkovsky and the Tatarstan National Symphony Orchestra. It is a unique and captivatingly successful story of recreating an orchestra, delicately yet powerfully bringing it up to the peaks of great performing art.” (Musical Life Magazine).
The vibrant Russian conductor Alexander Sladkovsky is acclaimed as an aristocrat under the new generation of Russian conductors. “His vivacious and genuine, at the same time thoughtful and deep music making, alongside the infectious energy, captures every audience.” (Belcanto.ru)
Medici.tv advertises the broadcast: “(Re)discover Elgar’s unforgettable Cello Concerto in E Minor! This cornerstone of the cello repertoire is performed here by German cellist Daniel Müller-Schott—praised by The New York Times as “a fearless player with technique to burn”—and the Tatarstan National Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Alexander Sladkovsky. Dvořák’s Symphony No. 7, considered by many to be his most structurally ambitious work and perhaps his greatest symphony, completes the program.”
Daniel Müller-Schott is represented by IMG Artists in North America and Asia.
