State Orchestra of Bashkiria will open new season with its first concert "Higher League"

National Symphony Orchestra will open the new season at the State Concert Hall "Bashkortostan" with the first concert of the "Major League" on September 1, the press service of the band told Bashinform News Agency.

During the following season, outstanding world-class musicians will perform with the leading orchestra of the republic. Honored Artist of Russia Ekaterina Mechetina and People's Artist of Republic Dilyara Idrisova will open the Higher League with the State Orchestra of Bashkortostan under the direction of Dmitry Kryukov. Concerto for Piano and Orchestra No. 3 by Sergei Rachmaninoff and Symphony No. 4 by Gustav Mahler will be performed.

The first part will be performed Sergei Rachmaninov's Third Piano Concerto, one of the composer's most famous and frequently performed works. This is a stunning example of Rachmaninov's lyrics, a brilliant example of how the poignant tenderness of content can be perfectly organically embodied in the transcendent virtuosity of form. Ekaterina Mechetina, in her interviews, often confesses her love for Sergei Rachmaninoff, and she puts her soul, heart, and brilliant technique into the performance of his music, which allows the audience to convey all the nuances of an intensely lyrical musical canvas so that they are remembered and remain in the heart for a long time.

In the second part, Gustav Mahler's Symphony No. 4 will be performed - very chamber and the most unusual in the composer's symphonic heritage. The language of the work is simple, and the symbolic structure is playful and, as it were, childishly ingenuous. But behind the seeming simplicity, there are glorious meanings, from the desire to preserve the valuable foundations of being and the despair of a tormented soul to peace filled with irony and a heartfelt female soprano.
