Sergey Khachatryan, violin – Orchestre National de France – David Afkham, cond – Live – December 2, 2010 – Radio France Musique –
Over to Paris this week for a 2010 concert featuring the Armenian Wünderkind Sergey Khachatryan joined by Orchestre National de France, conducted by David Afkham. The concert was captured live as it happened on December 2, 2010.
It opens with Khachatryan taking the stage and plunging right into the Prokofiev 2nd Violin Concerto. After intermission (which I left out) David Afkham and the Orchestra return and conclude the concert with a performance of the Shostakovich 10th Symphony.
In recent seasons, Sergey Khachatryan has performed with the Südwestrundfunk Symphonieorchester (with Christoph Eschenbach), Bamberger Symphoniker (with Herbert Blomstedt and Jonathan Nott), Münchner Philharmoniker (with James Gaffigan), Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra (with Juraj Valčuha), Mariinsky Orchestra (with Valery Gergiev), and Orchestre de Paris (with Andris Nelsons and Gianandrea Noseda). He has also collaborated with the Berliner Philharmoniker, Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Radio Filharmonisch Orkest, Rotterdam Philharmonic, Orchestre National de France, London Symphony, London Philharmonic, Philharmonia Orchestra, NHK Symphony, and Melbourne Symphony Orchestras.
Sergey’s recent appearances in the U.S. include engagements with the Seattle Symphony (led by Ludovic Morlot), Cleveland Orchestra (with Jakub Hrůša), and National Symphony Orchestra, Washington (with Vasily Petrenko). He has also visited the New York Philharmonic, Boston Symphony, Philadelphia Orchestra, and San Francisco Symphony as well as the Ravinia, Aspen, Blossom, and Mostly Mozart Festivals.
This season, Sergey’s international presence is sustained by performances with Dresdner Philharmonie (led by Cristian Măcelaru), Yomiuri Nippon Symphony Orchestra (with Yuri Temirkanov), Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra (with Alondra de la Parra), Moscow Philharmonic Orchestra (with Yuri Simonov), Orchestre de la Suisse Romande (with Jonathan Nott), Cleveland Orchestra (with Jakub Hrůša), Prague Radio Symphony (with Alexander Liebreich), and San Francisco Symphony (with Dima Slobodeniouk).
Enjoy the show.
