Join the great Sergey Smbatyan live in Dubai for one of the final concerts of the 2021 InClassica Festival! Under his baton, the Russian National Orchestra interprets works by Wagner and Shor in the company of two mega-talented soloists: cellist Alexander Kniazev and pianist Mikhail Pletnev.
The evening begins with Wagner's mythical symphonic poem Siegfried-Idyll, a gift to the composer's wife Cosima after the birth of their son Siegfried. Next, get ready to relive a recent world premiere: Kniazev performs Alexey Shor's brand-new Cello Concerto No. 2, triumphant and joyous, performed for the very first time in June 2021 with the same orchestra and conductor! Finally, piano virtuoso Mikhail Pletnev makes his entrance to tackle another inspired work by Shor, From My Bookshelf, a suite of eight piano pieces that serves as the composer's tribute to literary genius.
