PIANIST Rudolf P. Golez will be the featured soloist of the Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra season concert on November 11, 8PM at the Metropolitan Theater of Manila.
For the concert, Golez will perform George Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue. Other works to be featured in the concert are Gioachino Rossini’s The Barber of Seville, Nicanor Abelardo’s Cinderella Overture, and Modest Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition.
Golez concertizes mainly in the Philippines and the United States and looks forward to gain exposure in the concert stage of the capitals in Europe even as he carries out his responsibilities as Dean of the Liceo Conservatory of Music in Cagayan de Oro. He also endeavors to record his life’s repertoire in a CD and may include instructional material for his students. In 2021, he finished his Doctoral program in piano performance at the Philippine Women’s University.
The concert is the third offering in the PPO’s 38th concert season entitled “Metamorphosis” and continues the PPO search for its new Music Director.
Metamorphosis features 8 outstanding conductors, five of whom are shortlisted for the Music Director position.
Guest conductor Maestro Noam Zur takes the helm of the PPO for this concert. Since 2017, he was the principal conductor and artistic director of the State Symphony Orchestra of Salta, Argentina. He has over 20 years of professional and conducting experience during which he developed an expansive repertoire in opera, ballet and symphony. He is also a composer and arranger, having recorded his own works in “Funkhausorchester des WDR Köln” in August 2016 which he conducted as well.
