He is the 21-year-old violin star María Dueñas to open a trio of events which in recent weeks will see as many young and already established violinists making their debut with the Accademia di Santa Cecilia; after the Spanish star the German will take the stage Augustin Hadelich (22, 23 and 24 February) e Andrew Obiso (29 February, 1 and 2 March), first violin of the Santa Cecilia Orchestra, with which he now makes his debut as a soloist.

The concert scheduled for 2019 will be entirely dedicated to Russian music 15, 16 and 17 February 2024 to the Music Park of Rome with the direction of Stanislav Kochanovsky, who returns to lead the Orchestra of Santa Cecilia where he has been a regular guest since 2014. The Russian conductor, born in 1981, has developed a profound knowledge of the symphonic and operatic repertoire during his years as director of the Mikhailovsky Theater in St. Petersburg and of State Safonov Philharmonic Orchestra.

At the center of the program, the Violin Concerto of Tchaikovsky, which features the young violin star María Dueñas, born in 2002 in Granada and discovered at the age of just twelve by Marek Janowski, who conducted her in a concert on the podium of the San Francisco Symphony in 2014. Widely launched on the most prestigious stages, she has already played with the Staatskapelle Berlin, Oslo Philharmonic , Philadelphia Orchestra collaborating with conductors such as Herbert Blomstedt, Alan Gilbert and Yannick Nézet-Séguin. Last year the artist released his first CD (Beethoven's Violin Concerto with the Wiener Symphoniker conducted by Manfred Honeck) for the prestigious Deutsche Grammophon label, with which he signed an exclusive contract in September 2022.

To Santa Cecilia María Dueñas he will try his hand at the only violin concerto written by Tchaikovsky, one of the most loved pieces in the repertoire. Composed in 1878, the piece, masterfully orchestrated, is very rich in melodic inventiveness, and requires from the soloist passages of some of the most pyrotechnic virtuosity ever written for the instrument.

At the opening of the evening, Stanislav Kochanovsky will propose the sparkling Spanish caprice of Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, completed in 1887, which conquers thanks to the richness of colors and rhythms inspired by Spanish folklore and the brilliance of the orchestration; instead, the concert will close Symphony no. 3 in A minor of Sergej Rachmaninov, characterized by the feeling of acute nostalgia for the homeland that the composer had left in 1917 and where he never returned. Written in Lucerne, it was performed for the first time in 1936 in Philadelphia under the direction of Leopold Stokowski.
