Cultural Center of the Philippines

 

DATE/TIME/VENUE:

September 15, 2017 | 8:00PM

Tanghalang Nicanor Abelardo (CCP Main Theater)

  

DESCRIPTION:

The country's leading orchestra opens its 35th Concert Season with a selection of classical masterworks including Rossini’s Il Viaggio a Reims – Overture, Rachmaninoff’s Symphony No.2 in E minor, and Liszt’s Piano Concerto No.1 in E flat, featuring international guest soloist Yury Shadrin on piano. Praised for his "energy and bravura," Shadrin, is also noted by the South Florida Classical Review for his "superb technique that allowed him to blaze through this difficult work." PPO Principal Conductor and Music Director Yoshikazu Fukumura conducts.

 

As a season highlight, we invite you to listen to music that was lost in the cobwebs of time for two hundred years. Il Viaggio a Reims (Journey to Reims) was composed in 1825 for the coronation of Charles X at Reims where French kings are crowned.  The music was chopped up and became part of other pieces. An American musicologist put it back together again and this piece finally was played in whole again in 1984 at the Rossini Opera Festival at Pesaro, Italy.
