19:00 Alexander Romanovsky (Russia)
Pianist Alexander Romanovsky will perform works by Rachmaninoff, Mendelssohn and Chopin. Described by Carlo Maria Giulini as “extraordinarily gifted,” pianist Alexander Romanovsky is a riveting, distinct and subtle performer with an utterly engaging voice. Born in Ukraine in 1984, Alexander studied with his mentor Leonid Margarius at the Imola Piano Academy for fifteen years before continuing his studies at the Royal College of Music (London) with Dmitri Alexeev. At the age of seventeen, he won First Prize at the prestigious Busoni Competition in Italy. Praised by The New York Times as “special, not just an extraordinary technician with a flair for colour and fantasy, but also a sensitive musician and lucid interpreter,” Alexander graces many of the world’s most prestigious stages in recital. Recent highlights include the complete Chopin ?tudes in the Main hall of Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw; the Tchaikovsky Concert Hall in Moscow and the Great Hall of the Moscow Conservatoire; Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia and Teatro Olimpico in Rome; Tokyo’s Asahi and Kioi halls; Chile’s Teatro Municipal; and Sala Verdi at Milan’s Conservatorio; as well as a performance with the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Valery Gergiev. Romanovsky regularly performs with major orchestras throughout Europe, Asia and The Americas including the UK’s Royal Philharmonic, English Chamber etc.

13:00 Osipov National Folk Instruments Orchestra
This orchestra is also known as the Osipov Balalaika Orchestra and the Osipov National Academics Folk Instruments Orchestra of Russia. The history of the Orchestra is full of triumphs, constant searches for perfection and unexpected turns of fate. The Orchestra was founded in 1919 by two prominent musicians: balalaika player Boris Troyanovsky and domrist Pyotr Alexeyev. The first concert of this orchestra became the birthday of the First Moscow Great-Russian Orchestra of Folk Instruments. Very soon the Orchestra started touring the USSR performing in virtually every region of the enormous country — from Sakhalin to Carpaths and from White Sea to Caucasus. During those years the official name was changed twice — in 1928 to The All-Russian Radio Committee Folk Instruments Orchestra and in 1936 to The State Folk Instruments Orchestra of USSR. When the prominent Soviet musician Nikolai Ossipov was appointed Chief Conductor and Music Director in 1940 it became a new page in the history of the Orchestra. Since 2009 the Artistic Director and Principal Conductor of The Ossipov Balalaika Orchestra is Maestro Vladimir Andropov, one of the most talented and prominent musicians of Russia. With him the Orchestra continues to preserve and develop the best traditions of Russian folk music.
