Soloist: Alexy Stadler
Ravel: Pavane pour une infante défunte
Ravel: Le Tombeau de Couperin
Ravel: Le Tombeau de Couperin Fugue and Toccata
(arr. Kenneth Hesketh)
Due to Raphael Wallfisch’s, unexpected withdrawal from this concert we are delighted to inform you that the brilliant young cellist Alexey Stadler will take his place.
Alexey is one of the brightest young cellists of his generation and winner of the 2012 TONALi Grand Prix in Hamburg. In the last year he has performed at a number of high profileengagements across Europe: the BBC Proms under Vasily Petrenko; the San Francisco Symphony and Orchestra della Svizzera Italiana, both with Vladimir Ashkenazy; the Tokyo Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra. Festival appearances included the International Chamber Music Festival Stavanger, St Petersburg’s White Nights Festival and the Schleswig-Holstein Musik Festival.
Born into a family of musicians, Alexey began to play the cello at the age of four. He began his studies with Alexey Lazko and continued his education at the Rimsky-Korsakov College of Music in St Petersburg. He regularly attends masterclasses with great musicians such as David Geringas and Frans Helmerson.
The programme remains as advertised. Alexey will perform Haydn’s Cello Concerto No.1 as the centrepiece of a concert exploring the works of Ravel, with a little taste of Mozart as a starter
