Narek Hakhnazaryan plays Tchaikovsky

Armenian-born and internationally renowned cellist Narek Hakhnazaryan plays Tchaikovsky’s concerto-like Rococo Variations under the direction of Angel Gil-Ordóñez.

The evening opens with one of Brahms’s proudest dispatches from the Austrian countryside where he enjoyed creative summertime retreats. Then, composer-in-residence John Harbison transports us from the New England sun to the oppressively dark expanse of a Wisconsin winter for Snow Country, featuring the oboe against an earthy backdrop of string textures. To conclude the concert with the first orchestral performance this season, Armenian-born and renowned cellist Narek Hakhnazaryan makes his Festival début, playing Tchaikovsky’s concerto-like Rococo Variations.

His playing was like a perfectly honed signature, every flourish and curl executed with elegant ease.

Times, on Narek Haknazaryan
