Many years ago, Orchestre National de France performed Beethoven’s music at the NCPA in two concerts under the leadership of the late Kurt Masur. This time, the orchestra will, under the current music director Krivine’s leadership, perform not only the classics by French impressionist composers Ravel and Debussy, but also Khachaturian’s Flute Concerto with flute virtuoso Emmanuel Pahud. Then on November 27th-28th, Orchestra dell´Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia will perform German, Austrian and Russian musical compositions under music director Antonio Pappano’s baton.

Sir Antonio Pappano

Pianist Maurizio Pollini

This year marks the 160th anniversary of the death of great composer Schumann. On September 28th, Pollini will perform Schumann’s three works in tribute to the great composer, as well as Chopin’s works. András Schiff is considered the most authoritative interpreter of Bach’s music following Gould. At the concert of October 30th, Schiff will perform the works by Bach, Beethoven, Brahms and Schumann, and show his “forte” by playing different styles of music including the Baroque, the Classical and the Romantic.

Pianist Lang Lang

Pianist Daniil Trifonov

Russian composer Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 3 in D minor, Op. 30 is widely considered a challenge to play, but audiences will be lucky enough to listen to this piece played differently by two pianists - Daniil Trifonov with Orchestra dell´Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia and Boris Berezovsky with St. Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra respectively. As for Lang Lang, who will appear at the NCPA with the Berliner Philharmoniker and maestro Dudamel, he is set to perform Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 24 in C minor, K. 491. At the Berliner Philharmoniker concert on November 23rd, Lang Lang will return to NCPA stage after a hand injury.
