ALEXANDRA DOVGAN
Beethoven / Chopin

Alexandra Dovgan: a name to remember, since it's likely to become famous in the musical world! It is carried by a young girl who is already a queen of the piano although she’s barely twelve years old. In 2018, this precocious musician dazzled the jury of the Great Moscow Piano Competition by performing Mendelssohn's First Concerto, only six years after starting to play the piano! With the first prize in her pocket - along with many other distinctions - the young pianist has set out to conquer the international stage while continuing to study at the Central School of the Moscow Conservatory with the support of the New Names, Vladimir Spivakov and Mstislav Rostropovich foundations. She will be coming to the Riviera with Beethoven's famous 8th Sonata “Pathétique” and a delightful array of Chopin works. What more could one wish for to be charmed by a rising star?

Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827) - Sonata N° 8 in C minor "Sonata Pathétique" op. 13

Fantaisie-Impromptu op. 66

The second orchestra to partake in this festival focused on Russian culture is much younger, but just as famous as its illustrious elder from the Mariinsky Theatre Orchestra. In 1990, pianist and conductor Mikhaïl Pletnev caused a sensation by creating the Russian National Orchestra, the very first non-governmental orchestra to receive support from the Russian Federation. The ensemble's high level of performance immediately found wide international acclaim. For this first concert in Montreux, the orchestra and its founding conductor will be accompanied by the young Moldovan star violinist Alexandra Conunova and the Glinka Choir. Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto will be coming back to its roots for since it was here on the shores of Lake Geneva that the work was composed. It will be paired with Scriabine's Symphony Nº 1, a beautiful piece that would gain to be better known.

Piotr Ilyitch Tchaikovsky (1840-1893) – Violin Concerto
Alexander Scriabine (1872-1915) – Symphony Nº 1
