Riccardo Chailly — Conductor

Program notes

“In the right hand – for most people – you hold the baton. That hand keeps complete control of rhythm and tempo. The left hand is for colour, flexibility, expression...But conducting is, above all, a gift of nature [...] It’s almost mystical, alchemical, what happens between you and your players and the music. You can’t talk in a concert, after all, except with gesture.” (The Guardian) Join the renowned maestro Riccardo Chailly in a program dedicated to Rachmaninov, with star pianist Denis Matsuev at his side!
