PIANO RECITAL
KONSTANTIN LIFSCHITZ

Friday 27 October 2017
The Shoe Factory, Nicosia / 8.30pm

The Pharos Arts Foundation presents for the first time in Nicosia the sensational pianist Konstantin Lifschitz. Having established a worldwide reputation for performing extraordinary feats of endurance with honesty and persuasive beauty, Lifschitz has appeared in some of the world’s most prestigious concert halls with leading orchestras, besides being an active recording artist and a commanding conductor. His performance was praised as “the most magical moment” and “deeply satisfying” by The Independent, and “naturally expressive and gripping” by the New York Times. For his recital at The Shoe Factory, on Friday 27 October, Lifschitz will perform a colossal programme with what is considered the twin peak of the classical keyboard repertory: Bach’s Goldberg Variations and Beethoven’s Diabelli Variations.


ABOUT THE PROGRAMME:

Composed in 1741, after a commission of virtuoso J.G. Goldberg, Bach’s Goldberg Variations is a demonstration of unmatched craft in music history and genuine, poetic imagination. This sublime, compassionate and relentlessly intricate work, consisting of an aria and 30 variations, still engages scholars hundreds of years after its publication and is equally valuable for attracting new listeners to the magnificent music of J.S. Bach. In 1819, Viennese publisher Anton Diabelli sent a letter to a number of leading composers of the time (including Schubert, Czerny and Liszt), asking each of them to write a variation on a waltz he composed. His idea was to publish the collection, and raise money to support the orphans of soldiers killed in the Napoleonic wars. Beethoven initially declined, then he decided to submit one variation, and eventually, he was so fascinated by the idea that over a period of four years and while working on his 9th Symphony, he composed a set of 33 variations based on Diabelli’s theme. The result is a work of exhilarating humour, described as “the greatest of all piano works”, where the utmost elaborated compositional techniques are combined with concrete operations of historical reinterpretation, quotations and musical parody.

ΡΕΣΙΤΑΛ ΓΙΑ ΠΙΑΝΟ
KONSTANTIN LIFSCHITZ

Παρασκευή 27 Οκτωβρίου 2017
The Shoe Factory, Λευκωσία / 8.30μμ

Το Ίδρυμα Τεχνών Φάρος παρουσιάζει για πρώτη φορά στη Λευκωσία τον συγκλονιστικό πιανίστα Konstantin Lifschitz. Έχοντας καθιερωθεί διεθνώς για ερμηνείες που διέπονται από ειλικρίνεια, εντυπωσιακή αντοχή και πειστική ομορφιά, ο Lifschitz εμφανίζεται ως σολίστ με κορυφαίες ορχήστρες σε ορισμένες από τις σημαντικότερες αίθουσες μουσικής ανά το παγκόσμιο, έχει ξεχωρίσει για την επιβλητική του παρουσία ως μαέστρος, ενώ παράλληλα διατηρεί μια εξαιρετικά πλούσια δισκογραφία. Η ερμηνεία του έχει επευφημηθεί από την εφημερίδα Independent ως «η πιο μαγική στιγμή» και «βαθιά απολαυστική» και από τους New York Times ως «έμφυτα εκφραστική και συγκλονιστική». Για τη συναυλία του στο The Shoe Factory, την Παρασκευή 27 Οκτωβρίου 2017, ο Lifschitz θα ερμηνεύσει ένα κολοσσιαίο πρόγραμμα που αποτελείται από το δίπτυχο αποκορύφωμα του κλασικού πιανιστικού ρεπερτορίου: Τις Παραλλαγές Γκόλντμπεργκ του Μπαχ και τις Παραλλαγές Ντιαμπέλι του Μπετόβεν.


ΤΟ ΠΡΟΓΡΑΜΜΑ:

Έχοντας συντεθεί το 1741, έπειτα από ανάθεση του δεξιοτέχνη Γ.Γ. Γκόλντμπεργκ, οι Παραλλαγές Γκόλντμπεργκ του Μπαχ αποτελούν παράδειγμα απαράμιλλης τεχνικής στην ιστορία της μουσικής, καθώς και αυθεντικής, ποιητικής φαντασίας. Αυτό το θεσπέσιο, τρυφερό και αδυσώπητα πολύπλοκο έργο, το οποίο αποτελείται από μια άρια και 30 παραλλαγές, εξακολουθεί – εκατοντάδες χρόνια μετά την έκδοσή του – να μαγνητίζει τους μελετητές και να προσελκύει νέους ακροατές στη θαυμάσια μουσική του Γ.Σ. Μπαχ. Το 1819, ο Βιεννέζος εκδότης Άντον Ντιαμπέλι έστειλε ένα γράμμα σε πολλούς επιφανείς συνθέτες της εποχής (συμπεριλαμβανομένων των Σούμπερτ, Τσέρνι και Λιστ), ζητώντας τους να γράψουν μια παραλλαγή σε ένα βαλς που ο ίδιος συνέθεσε. Η ιδέα του ήταν να εκδώσει τη συλλογή με σκοπό να συγκεντρώσει χρήματα προς στήριξη των ορφανών των στρατιωτών που σκοτώθηκαν στους Ναπολεόντειους πολέμους. Ο Μπετόβεν αρχικά αρνήθηκε, εν συνεχεία αποφάσισε να παραδώσει μια παραλλαγή, και εντέλει γοητεύτηκε τόσο πολύ από την ιδέα που, μέσα σε διάστημα τεσσάρων ετών και συνθέτοντας παράλληλα την 9η Συμφωνία του, έγραψε ένα σύνολο 33 παραλλαγών πάνω στο θέμα του Ντιαμπέλι. Το αποτέλεσμα έχει χαρακτηρισθεί «το σπουδαιότερο έργο του πιανιστικού ρεπερτορίου» – ένα έργο που διέπεται από μια ενθουσιώδη αίσθηση του χιούμορ και στο οποίο άκρως περίπλοκες τεχνικές σύνθεσης συνδυάζονται με απτές διαδικασίες ιστορικής επανερμηνείας, παραθεμάτων και μουσικής παρωδίας.

KONSTANTIN LIFSCHITZ πιάνο

Ο Konstantin Lifschitz έχει καθιερωθεί διεθνώς για ερμηνείες που διέπονται από ειλικρίνεια, εντυπωσιακή αντοχή και πειστική ομορφιά. Δίνει ρεσιτάλ και εμφανίζεται ως σολίστ με κορυφαίες ορχήστρες σε ορισμένες από τις σημαντικότερες αίθουσες μουσικής ανά το παγκόσμιο, ενώ διατηρεί παράλληλα μια εξαιρετικά πλούσια δισκογραφία. Η ερμηνεία του έχει επευφημηθεί από την εφημερίδα Independent ως «η πιο μαγική στιγμή» και «βαθιά απολαυστική» και από τους New York Times ως «έμφυτα εκφραστική και συγκλονιστική».

Γεννημένος στο Χάρκοβο της Ουκρανίας, το 1976, ο Konstantin Lifschitz έγινε δεκτός σε ηλικία πέντε ετών από την Ειδική Σχολή Μουσικής Gnessin της Μόσχας, ως μαθητής της Tatiana Zelikman. Μετά την αποφοίτησή του, συνέχισε τις σπουδές του σε Ρωσία, Αγγλία και Ιταλία υπό τους Άλφρεντ Μπρέντελ, Λεόν Φλέισερ, Τεοντόρ Γκούντμαν, Τσαρλς Ρόζεν, Καρλ Ούλριχ Σνάμπελ, Βλαντιμίρ Τροπ, μεταξύ άλλων.

Περί τις αρχές της δεκαετίας του 1990, ο Konstantin Lifschitz κέρδισε υποτροφία από το Ρωσικό Πολιτιστικό Ίδρυμα, και ξεκίνησε εμφανίσεις σε Ευρωπαϊκές πρωτεύουσες. Περιόδευσε στην Ιαπωνία με την ορχήστρα Moscow Virtuosi υπό τη διεύθυνση του Βλαντιμίρ Σπιβάκοφ, και στην Ευρώπη με τη Συμφωνική Ορχήστρα της Αγίας Πετρούπολης υπό τη διεύθυνση του Γιούρι Τεμιρκάνοφ, και συνέπραξε με τους Μίσα Μάισκι και Γκίντον Κρέμερ. Το 1995, απέσπασε το βραβείο ECHO Klassik για την πρώτη του δισκογραφική δουλειά ως «ο Υποσχόμενος Καλλιτέχνης της Χρονιάς», και το 1996, ήταν υποψήφιος για Γκράμι για το άλμπουμ του στις Παραλλαγές Γκόλντμπεργκ του Μπαχ.

Έπειτα από το εκρηκτικό ντεμπούτο του, σε ηλικία 13 ετών, στο Μέγαρο των Συνδικάτων στη Μόσχα, ο Konstantin Lifschitz έχει εμφανισθεί σε σημαντικές αίθουσες συναυλιών ανά το παγκόσμιο, σε ρεσιτάλ για σόλο πιάνο ή σε κοντσέρτα με ορχήστρες – μεταξύ άλλων – Φιλαρμονικές Ορχήστρες της Νέας Υόρκης, της Αγίας Πετρούπολης, της Μόσχας και της Στουτγάρδης, Συμφωνικές Ορχήστρες του Λονδίνου, του Σικάγο, του Βερολίνου, του Σαν Φρανσίσκο, της Νέας Ζηλανδίας, της Δανίας και RAI, Ορχήστρες Ραδιοφωνίας της Φρανκφούρτης, του Βερολίνου, της Βιέννης, Νοτιοδυτικής Γερμανίας, NDR Αμβούργου, MDR Λειψίας, ορχήστρα Mozarteum του Σάλτσμπουργκ και ορχήστρα Academy of St Martin in the Fields.
