Program notes

At the Moscow Easter Festival, Valery Gergiev and the Mariinsky Theatre Orchestra invite pianist Alexei Volodin.

The Mariinsky Theatre Orchestra and their music director Valery Gergiev play the Symphony No. 4 as well as excerpts from the ballet Cinderella and the rarely performed Egyptian Suite. For this performance, the festival invited Alexei Volodin, a pianist from St. Petersburg like the orchestra, and a former student of Elisso Virsaladze at the Moscow Conservatory, where he now plays the Piano Concerto No. 4 "for the left hand" by Prokofiev, a work of extreme difficulty.
