Aspen Music Festival: Festival Orchestra: Malofeev plays Rachmaninoff



Klein Music Tent, 960 N 3rd Street, Aspen, CO 81611

Event Description

"See a Rachmaninoff rarity played by one of the most exciting pianists of his generation, and a rising conducting star and alum of the Aspen Conducting Academy program! Aspen Conducting Academy alumnus Roderick Cox conducts Strauss’s stirring and beautifully orchestrated Ein Heldenleben (A Hero’s Life). At only 22, Alexander Malofeev is already a big name in Europe and China, and his YouTube channel has over 97,000 subscribers. Winner of numerous international awards, Malofeev became interested in the music of Tchaikovsky, Shostakovich, Mahler, Rachmaninoff, and Prokofiev by the time he was seven. Following acclaimed performances last summer and winter in Aspen, he returns for Rachmaninoff’s First Piano Concerto."

RACHMANINOFF: Piano Concerto No. 1 in F-sharp minor, Op. 1
