Russian cellist Dmitry Prokofiev will perform for the first time with the Dubrovnik Symphony Orchestra tonight, May 2nd, at the terrace of Museum of Modern Art Dubrovnik. The orchestra will be conducted by Israeli conductor Noam Zur, and the start of the concert is scheduled at 9 pm.
The young cello player is the winner of numerous international youth competitions and other international competitions such as A. Tansman (Poland 1998), P. Tchaikovsky (Russia 2002), A. Janigro (Croatia 2008). He’s been performing since he was 10. His solo recitals have been held in many cities of Russia and around the world in prestigious halls such as the Paris Auditorium du Louvre and Rudolfinum in Prague. Dmitry Prokofiev recorded his first CD at age of 16 with professor of Moscow Conservatory Alexey Nasedkin (cello and piano sonatas - D. Šostakovič and E. Grieg), and in 2004 he released a CD with Alexander Kobrin.
At the concert with the Dubrovnik Symphony Orchestra, he will perform one of the hardest works for the cello: Rococo variations in A major, op. 33 P.I. Tchaikovsky, in its original form. In the rest of the concert, the audience will have the opportunity to hear some of the most beautiful opera overtures by Mr. Rossini, J. Strauss, A. Ponchielli, H. Berlioz, P. Mascagni and other composers.
