Mikhaïl Pletnev will replace Valery Gergiev due to a programming change.

The Orchestre de Paris welcomes conductor Mikhaïl Pletnev and violinist Janine Jansen for a programme in vivid colour, dedicated to the golden age of Russian music.

Although it is called it a fantasy-overture, this Romeo and Juliet has all the makings of a symphonic poem. Drawing on the timeless story of Shakespeare’s star-crossed lovers, Tchaikovsky here constructed a striking form that paved the way for other operas.
The same sense of narration runs through Prokofiev’s Concerto No. 1, in which the solo violin draws us into a long ballad. The sensitive bow of Janine Jansen will render the full nuance of a score that so deftly blends poetry and playfulness.
In terms of scale, Tchaikovsky’s Suite No. 3 could very well be a symphony, which is how the composer first imagined it when he began writing it in 1884. It would become one of his greatest popular successes, here brilliantly conducted by Mikhaïl Pletnev, the Tchaikovsky interpreter par excellence.
