Daems | SOV Composers’ Academy ~ creation
Chopin | Piano Concerto No. 1 in e, Op. 11
Dvořák | Symphony No. 8 in G, Op. 88

Notes that sparkle like stardust in space: the second movement of Chopin's Piano Concerto No. 1 has even the most stoic of listeners go starry-eyed. With his trademark sensitivity and understated virtuosity, soloist Alexei Volodin transforms the piano's keys into pure vocal cords. The vitality of Dvořák's Symphony No. 8 offers a stark contrast, its carefree notes invite us into a world of unseen wonder. Music that meets life with a kiss!
