A new collaboration between the Géza Anda-Foundation and the National Academy of Music « Prof. Pancho Vladigerov » in Sofia allows Mihály Berecz to prepare Tchaikovsky’s First Piano Concerto for his debut the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic at the Concertgebouw Amsterdam on 2nd March. Julian Trevelyan will try out Rachmaninov’s Third Piano Concerto, which he hopes to present at the forthcoming Leeds Piano Competition.
Our laureates will rehearse these works for three days in Sofia with the Academic Orchestra and an experienced conductor, Konstantin Ilievsky. On 14th February, they perform them before an illustrious audience at the Music Academy. On that occasion, Julian will also conduct a piece by Pancho Vladigerov, the most eminent Bulgarian composer, who was born on 13th March 125 years ago in Zurich.
