Event Info

Tugan Sokhiev conducts Prokofiev’s most popular symphony — angular, with powerful instrumental combinations and fiery harmonies. Powerful outbursts alternate with haunting melodies, brass and percussion explosions with lyricism, tragedy with triumph. The dark passion of Mozart’s 20th Piano Concerto looks forward to the Romantic age, and a dramatic overture makes for a compelling curtain raiser.

Conductor

Internationally renowned conductor Tugan Sokhiev shares his time between the symphony and the opera. He performs with orchestras all over the world and serves as music director of the Orchestre national du Capitole de Toulouse and, since 2014, as music director and chief conductor of Moscow’s prestigious Bolshoi Theatre. From 2012 to 2017 he was the principal conductor of the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin.

Mr. Sokhiev was appointed music director of the Orchestre national du Capitole de Toulouse in 2008, after having begun his association with the orchestra three years earlier as its principal guest conductor and musical advisor. He has headed many successful concert seasons that have included world premieres and a significant number of tours abroad, propelling the orchestra to international prominence.

During the 2020–21 season, Mr. Sokhiev will conduct new productions of Richard Strauss’s Salome and Tchaikovsky’s Mazeppa at the Bolshoi Theatre. He is invited to conduct the Berlin Philharmonic, New York Philharmonic, Orchestra dell'Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia, and NHK Symphony, and he will make his Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra debut. He will be touring with the Orchestre de Paris and Amsterdam’s Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra.

Tugan Sokhiev was one of the last students of Ilya Musin at the St. Petersburg Conservatory, where he also studied under Yuri Temirkanov. Soon after graduating, he made his debut at the Mariinski Theatre in St. Petersburg with The Metropolitan Opera. He regularly conducts the Vienna Philharmonic, Berlin Philharmonic, Amsterdam’s Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Boston Symphony Orchestra, Philadelphia Orchestra, London Symphony Orchestra, London’s Philharmonia Orchestra, Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, Munich Philharmonic, Orchestre de Paris, and NHK Symphony.

Mr. Sokhiev’s rich and varied discography includes recordings on Naïve Classique, with the Orchestre national du Capitole de Toulouse, and on Sony Classical, with the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester. He has recorded DVDs featuring works by Beethoven, Bartók, and Brahms, as well as by Prokofiev and Ravel, for EuroArts.
