MusicAeterna, Currentzis & Melnikov on tour
At first glance, they could not be distinguished more: the introvert and publicity-shy Russian pianist Alexander Melnikov and the Greek conductor Teodor Currentzis, famous for his extrovert way of conducting as well as for his flamboyant performance, who created in Perm the most outstanding ensemble musicAeterna. But in November 2017 at the latest, everyone could witness the deep connection between two exceptional artistic personalities: „It is unbelievable, in which the dynamic orchestra picked up details of certain motives and how the musicians spent an idea of turbulence to the movement“, judged Gerd Hoffmann.
Starting on 10th of April 2018, Melnikov, Currentzis and musicAeterna start another tour leading them to important European concert halls. The tour starts at Concertgebouw Amsterdam, continuous to Hannover, Milano, Vienna, Hamburg, Düsseldorf and Frankfurt am Main. The orchestra debuts at the legendary Scala of Milano and the the renowned Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg.
The repertoire presents works by Mozart and Beethoven, the most important representatives of the Viennese classical area. In 2014, Teodor Currentzis and musicAeterna presented their milestone recording of Mozart’s Le Nozze di Figaro, highly acclaimed by public and press. The operas overture opens the evening, followed by Mozart’s piano concerto K 453 and Beethovens symphony no. 7.
