A huge thank you to conductor Mr Alexander Sladkovsky and the Tatarstan National Symphony Orchestra for giving me the opportunity to perform with them at the White Lilac Festival of Sergei Rachmaninoff in Kazan last week. The performers included Barry Douglas, Valentina Lisitsa and Cesar Alvarez. It was wonderful being in the beautiful city of Kazan and a great honour that Mr Sladkovsky chose Rachmaninoffs Piano Concerto No.2 for me to perform. I hope that I managed to give a performance worthy of one of the worlds greatest concertos.
You can see me rehearsing the 2nd movement with the orchestra here.
