The program of the concert in memory of the national artist and brilliant conductor Ravil Martynov, the musical director and chief conductor of the theater Valery Voronin planned together with the famous pianist Vadim Palmov. The collaboration of two maestros and a symphony orchestra resulted in two concerts played at the highest professional level with an interesting program and an incredible atmosphere. The evening was opened by the works of A. Rubinstein and G. Mahler. For the first time the Astrakhan Symphony Orchestra conducted by Valery Voronin, together with Vadim Palmov, performed the fourth concert for piano and orchestra by Anton Rubinstein.
On the eve of the performance Valery Voronin admitted more than once: “Ravil Martynov was a Teacher. And for me too. He possessed deep knowledge: the literary context, historical circumstances that accompanied the emergence of the work, were an integral part of his professional competence. He himself enjoyed performing the Fourth Concert of Rubinstein. After a meeting with Vadim Palmov, who as it turned out played this concert with Ravil Enverovich, the decision to put it on the program came by itself. It should sound like my teacher wanted it. ”
The concert continued with Mahler's Symphony No. 5, which critics consider a serious test for musicians and an indicator of their first-class skill. The Fifth Symphony is an extraordinary, extremely difficult to perform creation by Gustav Mahler and requires an enhanced composition. The musicians of the Astrakhan Symphony Orchestra were joined by colleagues from Rostov-on-Don, Krasnodar, Saratov, Sochi, Tambov.
A unique concert dedicated to the memory of Ravil Martynov was visited by his daughter.
Long applause, shouts of “bravo!” and flowers became an expression of great gratitude to each participant of an unforgettable evening.
