De Jonghe | ~ Ansatz (creation SOV Composers' Academy)
Rachmaninov | Concerto for piano No. 2 in c,  Op. 18
Igor Stravinsky | Petrushka (version 1947)            

A true dream for every conductor: Stravinsky’s Petrushka combines so many bright colours and bouncing sounds, the baton almost dances on its own. Rachmaninoff wrote his famous Second Piano Concerto after a period of major depression. Fortunately, the hypnotherapist Nikolaj Dahl helped him climb out of that dark pit. The Russian-Lithuanian pianist Lukas Geniušas feels Rachmaninoff's virtuoso melancholy perfectly.
