Denis Kozhukhin makes debut with Frankfurt Radio SO on 10 & 11 April (+ BBC lunchtime recital at St Luke’s, 17 April)
This month, Denis Kozhukhin will make his debut with the Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra. On 10 and 11 April, Kozhukhin will perform Rachmaninov Piano Concerto No. 2 at the Alte Oper under the baton of Marin Alsop. Kozhukhin’s Frankfurt RSO performances follow several major debuts this spring, including at the Amsterdam Concertgebouw’s Master Pianists Series and the Zurich Tonhalle, and a major tour of the USA with the St Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra and Yuri Temirkanov, during which the New York Times described his Carnegie Hall concerto debut as “dazzling”.
On 17 April, Kozhukhin will give a BBC lunchtime recital at LSO St Luke’s in London, which will be recorded for broadcast on BBC Radio 3. The programme will include Taneyev Prelude and Fugue, Prokofiev Piano Sonata No.9 in C major, Op.103 and Rachmaninov Corelli Variations.
