Riječki simfonijski orkestar

26 March 2022

One of the most promising young pianists in the world today is performing in Rijeka!

Andrey Gugnin, a young Russian pianist of international renown, is known as a passionate, virtuosic performer with an extraordinarily versatile and agile technique that serves his inspired musical imagination. He has won prestigious competitions around the world, and performs regularly in concert halls such as Musikverein in Vienna, Victoria Hall in Geneva, Carnegie Hall in New York, Abravanel Hall in Salt Lake City, the Sydney Opera House, the Great Hall of the Moscow State Conservatory, the Tchaikovsky Concert Hall in Moscow, Mariinsky Hall, the Louvre in Paris, the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Space and Asahi Hamarikyu Hall.

Under the baton of Stjepan Vuger, the Rijeka Symphony Orchestra will guide you through the works of two of the most passionate and pervasive musical forces! Even when you think that you don’t know about some of their work, once you hear it you realize that you’ve certainly heard some passages from the work of contemporaries Mozart and the 14-year-younger Beethoven on so many other occasions. An innovative genius who transcends the usual possibilities and formal limitations with his music, and one of the greatest composers whose fame still spreads to this day – statements that are true for both composers.
