The evening's programme
The 'State Academic Symphony Orchestra' will perform compositions by E. Brusilovsky ('Poème symphonique "Dudaray"'), F. Liszt (Piano Concerto No. 2, soloist Gabriele Carcano) and S. Rachmaninov ('Symphony No. 2'). While everyone is familiar with such renowned composers as Franz Liszt and Sergei Vasil'evič Rachmaninov, the first piece to be performed is a traditional Kazakh piece by Evgeny Grigorievich Brusilovsky (1905 - 1981), a Soviet and Russian composer who settled in Kazakhstan. The symphonic poem 'Dudaray' was written by Evgeny Brusilovsky in the mid-1950s and belongs to the second phase of symphonic music in the composer's oeuvre.
