Conductor Sergey Smbatyan founded the Armenian State Symphony Orchestra in 2005. From the beginning, the orchestra has been home to bright and energetic musicians, assembled around a shared vision based on the elevatory power of music, and a desire to amplify Armenian culture. Hence the inclusion of renowned Armenian composer Aram Khachaturian’s Masquerade in the programme.

Originally penned for a centenary performance of Russian Romantic writer Mikhail Lermontov’s rebellious and spirited four-act play, the suite opens with the composer’s celebrated, surging and instantly familiar waltz.

Beethoven’s confident and assertive ‘Emperor’ concerto is complemented by Tchaikovsky’s personal Symphony No.4 in a night that also sees the return to the venue of the ever-popular Freddy Kempf.

Exceptionally gifted with an unusually broad repertoire, Freddy is one of today’s most successful pianists, performing to sell-out audiences all over the world.
