Extractions: Musik ist eine Frage des Geschmacks und Rachmaninow trifft den meinen perfekt. Die Symphonie Nr. 1 und Die Toteninsel gehören zu meinen Lieblingsstücken. Der 1957 in Archangelsk geborene Pianist und Dirigent Mikhail Pletnev hat die zwei Kompositionen auf einer CD zusammen mit dem von ihm gegründeten Russischen Nationalorchester eingespielt. Rachmaninows Erste Symphonie in d-moll op. 13 wurde 1897 uraufgeführt und überforderte den Dirigenten. Die Reaktion des Publikums fiel so negativ aus, dass der sensible Rachmaninow drei Jahre lang wie gelähmt war und erst dank einer Hypnosebehandlung vom Neurologen Nikolai Dahl geheilt werden konnte. Erst danach wagte sich der Komponist und Pianist wieder an die Öffentlichkeit. Rachmaninow hatte die Partitur der Ersten Symphonie zerstört, sie aber in seinem letzten Werk, den

Extractions: Mikhail Pletnev's Biography Mikhail Pletnev was born in Archangel, Russia, in 1957. His parents were both musicians, and Pletnev displayed exceptional musical talent from an early age. After completing his studies at the Central Music School he began his studies of piano at the Moscow Conservatory, in 1974, under the pianist Jacob Flier and then with Lev Vlasenko. In 1978, Pletnev won the Gold Medal at the Tchaikovsky International Piano Competition in Moscow. As a result he was able to make concert tours outside the former Soviet Union throughout Europe, Japan, the USA and Israel. One of the highlights of his career came in 1990, when he performed at the personal invitation of Mikhail Gorbachev for the superpower summit with President George Bush in Washington. One of the great pianists of our time, Mikhail Pletnev regularly gives concerts and recitals in major cities as well as at important festivals in Europe, Asia and Russia. He has worked with conductors like Haitink, Maazel, Chailly, Tennstedt, J rvi, Thielemann and Giulini. In 1997 he performed with the Berlin Philharmonic under the baton of Claudio Abbado at the New Year
Extractions: Article Mikhail Pletnev Founder and Artistic Director Mikhail Pletnev is an artist whose genius as pianist, conductor and composer enchants and amazes audiences around the globe. His musicianship encompasses a dazzling technical power and provocative emotional range, and a searching interpretation that fuses instinct with intellect. At the keyboard and podium alike, Pletnev is recognized as one of the finest artists of our time. Pletnev was Gold Medal and First Prize winner of the 1978 Tchaikovsky International Piano Competition when he was only 21, a prize that earned him early recognition worldwide. An invitation to perform at the 1988 superpower summit in Washington led to a friendship with Mikhail Gorbachev Ð and the historic opportunity to make music in artistic freedom. In 1990 Pletnev formed the first independent orchestra in Russia's history. The risks of this step, even with Gorbachev's endorsement, were enormous and it was Pletnev's reputation and commitment that made his long-held dream a reality. Sharing his vision for a new model for the performing arts, many of the country's finest musicians joined Pletnev in launching the Russian National Orchestra. Under his leadership, the RNO achieved in a few short years a towering stature among the world's orchestras. Pletnev describes the RNO as his greatest joy and today serves as its Artistic Director and head of the Conductor Collegium.

A professional pianist can perform solo pieces, play with an orchestra or smaller ensemble, or accompany one or more singers or solo instrumentalists. A performing classical pianist usually starts playing piano at a very young age, some as early as three years old. Many well-known classical composers were able pianists themselves; for example, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Ludwig van Beethoven, Franz Liszt, Frederic Chopin, Robert Schumann, and Sergei Rachmaninov were all virtuoso pianists. Some pianists have special preferences as to which composer's music they play.
Extractions: Click the link for more information. composer A composer is a person who writes music. The term refers particularly to someone who writes music in some type of musical notation, thus allowing others to perform the music. This distinguishes the composer from a musician who improvises. However, a person may be called a composer without creating music in documentary form, since not all musical genres rely on written notation. In this context, the composer is the originator of the music, and usually its first performer. Later performers then repeat the musical composition they have heard.
