Rafał Blechacz interprets Beethoven
Now it has become the annual appointment with the young pianist Rafał Blechacz, revealed to the world by the Chopin competition in Warsaw in 2005, and in a short time he has become one of the most extraordinary and compelling pianists on the planet, thanks to the "traditional" and very brilliant execution style and with which he has fascinated and convinced the audience all over the planet.

After the highly-acclaimed recital of last season, now he is back with the Orchestra dell'Accademia di Santa Cecilia with the Concerto No. 4 for piano and orchestra by Beethoven, less heroic than the third and fifth, and certainly suitable to strings of the young Polish interpreter for his delicacy and intimate melancholy, just cleared from the unleashed and saucy Rondo finale.

And the first part of the concert is all Beethoven, directed by the young talented Colombian, Andrés Orozco-Estrada, with other two choral compositions, beautiful and rarely performed, the “Elegiac Song” and “Calm Sea and Prosperous Voyage”. The concert closes with the Symphony No. 7 by Antonin Dvorak, less famous than the new world, but more intriguing, ambitious and complex.

The news release has been distributed today among Italian media, about the upcoming concerts in Rome later this month.


With Orozco-Estrada, the young Rafał Blechacz returns to Santa Cecilia.
Thirty-four year-old director and twenty-seven-year-old pianist
The Academy of Santa Cecilia continues in line with the youthfulness, Saturday, Feb. 25 (Sala Santa Cecilia,18:00; Monday 27, 21:00; Tuesday 28, 19.30), with the debut on the Cecilia’s podium of one of the star conductors in the new generation Andres Orozco-Estrada and the return of another prodigy, the pianist Rafal Blechacz of twenty seven, already a favorite of the public of Santa Cecilia.

The Colombian Orozco-Estrada became famous around the world at age of just 27 when a fortunate occasion sent him on the podium of the Musikverein to replace a director: the Viennese press immediately called him ''a wonder from Vienna, and now a series of successes led him to direct the orchestras more important in the international scene.

For his debut at Santa Cecilia he will conduct the Orchestra and Chorus in two gems of the choral music of Beethoven, two beautiful and rare pieces, “Elegiac Song” and “Calm Sea and Prosperous Voyage”, then go to the Concerto No.4 in G major for piano and orchestra in the interpretation, in fact, by Rafal Blechacz. He will conclude the program by Symphony No.7 by Dvorak, dense and dramatic chapter of the Czech composer.
