Oleg Bezborodko, piano
Your first chance to sample this year’s festival composer, Valentin Silvestrov – a concert entirely devoted to his Bagatelles, with the Ukrainian Oleg Bezborodko on piano. The Bagatelles are, as the title suggests, short pieces of immensely beautiful music; waltzes, lullabies, postludes, etc. They are often played individually, Leif Ove Andsnes and Hélène Grimaud, among others, have played several of them in recent years, but together they form a whole that provides a rare deep dive into Silvestrov's musical universe.
Listen with care!
