De Doelen: Grote ZaalKruisstraat 2, Rotterdam, South Holland, 3012 CT, Netherlands
On Thursday 12 September 2019 at 20:15
Festival: Rotterdam Philharmonic Gergiev Festival

A unique opening concert: Chief Conductor and top-flight pianist Lahav Shani now appears as a soloist with his own orchestra under the baton of former Chief Conductor Valery Gergiev. This concert also features the world premiere of a commissioned work by Thierry Escaich and closes with the famous Bolero: as if seen through a kaleidoscope, the same melody is successively given a different instrumentation.

The world premiere of Escaich was written with the support of the Sylvia Tóth Compositiefonds for the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra and the Rotterdam Philharmonic Gergiev Festival.
