“ Concert Season 2023 -24 ”
TO Rome back on the podiumNational Academy of Santa Cecilia the Russian director Tugan Sokhiev, engaged in the trio of concerts scheduled from 2 to 4 May at the Auditorium Ennio Morricone Music Park; scheduled for the suite prepared by himself Swan Lake of Tchaikovsky, and the Second Piano Concerto of Sergej Prokofiev, written between 1912 and 1913. To try his hand as a soloist in this spectacular and very difficult piece, he is called the Chinese Haochen Zhang, in his Cecilian debut.

Tugan Sokhiev among the most appreciated conductors in theaters around the world, he hit the headlines in the aftermath of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, when he simultaneously resigned from his positions as director of the Bolshoi Theater in Moscow and musical director of the Orchester National du Capitole de Toulouse, demonstrating at the same time his opposition to every conflict and the ostracism of which Russian culture risked being the victim. Since then he has continued his career by intensifying his collaborations with the most prestigious orchestras, such as the Berliner and Wiener Philharmoniker, the Concertgebouw Orchestra of Amsterdam and the major American groups.

33 years old, winner in 2009 of the Gold Medal at the Van Cliburn, one of the most important piano competitions in the world, Haochen Zhang he has performed in many major halls in the United States, Europe and Asia. He has been invited by major festivals and orchestras including the Munich Philharmonic with Lorin Maazel, the Philadelphia Orchestra with Yannick Nézet-Séguin, the Concertgebouw and the BBC Proms, Staatskapelle Berlin, Lucerne Festival Orchestra, Filarmonica della Scala and many others.
