John Axelrod returns to LaVerdi, in Milan. He will conduct Brahms' Serenata no.1 and Šostakovič' Symphony no. 6. Born in 1939, a crucial year in twentieth-century history, the Sixth in fact conveys the image of a restless and disturbing, grotesque and tragic world shaped by Šostakovič with a language that is deliberately disjointed and unbalanced, almost as if to mirror a world that had lost its mind.
The concerts will be on Friday 5 at 8 pm and on Sunday 7 at 4 pm, at Auditorium of Milan, Fondazione Cariplo.
On "bachtrack" they say about him:
"Russians invade the Philharmonia - The occasion brought young Russian conductor Stanislav Kochanovsky to London for the first time. He has been making waves around Europe and beyond, and we now heard just why".
And on "Seen and Heard International" too:
"The orchestra was under Stanislav Kochanovsky, who was replacing Yuri Temirkanov. St. Petersburg-born Kochanovsky is a superb accompanist, with Matsuev all the way, while allowing his orchestra to take centre-stage as appropriate. [...] there is no doubting the musical intelligence of this conductor".
With Shostakovich' Symphony dedicated to his home town, Leningrad, and the Prokofiev's Piano Concert no. 2, on April 4 at 7.30 pm, Stanislav Kochanovsky makes his debut on the podium of the Philharmonia Orchestra of London, at the Royal Festival Hall.
Is now available the video from last concert of Stanislav Kochanovsky at the Amsterdam Concertgebouw with the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra.

From Ligeti's Le Grand Macabre at the Opernhaus in Zurich to Haydn's Il Mondo della Luna at the Philharmonie in Paris, the extraordinary artistic journey of Tito Ceccherini.
“Quelle chance pour les protagonistes de ce Mondo della luna d’avoir pu travailler avec un chef tel que Tito Ceccherini ! Dès l’ouverture, sa preste baguette apporte un allant et une pulsation qui perdurent tout au long de la représentation. Les jeunes instrumentistes de l’Orchestre du Conservatoire (Sarah Jegou au violon solo) forcent l’admiration par le relief, le tonus et les couleurs d’une exécution stylée. Ils disposent il est vrai du guide idoine en la personne du maestro italien” wrote Alain Cochard on ConcertClassic
Great success for John Axelrod with the Real Orquesta Sinfónica De Sevilla on Germany tour completely sold out, standing ovation and good reviews.
Die Welt from Hamburg writes : "During the concert Axelrod profiled the pure orchestral works imaginatively with excellent balanced sound, in which especially the saxophonist and the flutist enthused".
