Vassily Sinaisky conducts two orchestras in the Far East
Published: 25 February 2009
Vassily Sinaisky travels to the Far East in February to conduct the Yomiuri Nippon Symphony Orchestra, Tokyo and the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra, Kuala Lumpur. Sinaisky conducts two programmes in Tokyo, the first featuring Rachmaninov Symphony No.2 and the second featuring Berlioz Symphonie Fantastique. With the Malaysian Philharmonic Sinaisky works for the first time with Sergio Tiempo, who plays Liszt Piano Concerto No.1 in their two concerts together.
In other news, Sinaisky received outstanding reviews for his recent concert with the Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra at the Berlin Konzerthaus. Berliner Zeitung commented:
"It was clear from the first bar that a musician of the highest order stood on the podium. The 61 year old Vassily Sinaisky comes unmistakably from the Russian tradition of Rozhdestvensky, Kondrashin, Svetlanov and Mravinsky, who combined clarity of structure with energy, and treated the music with absolute reverence... it goes without saying with this conductor that his interpretation developed from an intimate knowledge of the score, bringing out both the subtleties and the moments of unrestrained outcry with equal success. A great evening."
