Ukrainian star Maxim Rysanov play-directs a concert that – appropriately enough – starts in the heavens, 21 January 2022, in the iconic Ulster Hall. Missy Mazzoli’s Sinfonia (for Orbiting Spheres) is based on the shape of a solar system, with musical ideas twisting and turning as they connect with each other.
Rysanov has a long-standing collaborative partnership with composer Dobrinka Tabakova, and her arrangement of Schubert’s Arpeggione Sonata was written for him.
The arrangement perfectly transfers Schubert’s lines and melodies to the orchestra and Rysanov is a brilliant interpreter of the piece.
“…he captures Schubert’s elusive sound world with bullseye accuracy.” - The Strad’s
Closing the concert is Tchaikovsky’s Fourth Symphony. Written after a disastrous marriage, a deep period of writer’s block and a period of depression, it’s no surprise that this is a deeply emotional and turbulent work. Nonetheless, it’s also full of Tchaikovsky’s gorgeously rich melodies and is a blazing finale to the evening.
