Andrés Orozco-Estrada And Russian Pianist Denis Kozhukhin Comes to Jones Hall

Andrés Orozco-Estrada And Russian Pianist Denis Kozhukhin Comes to Jones HallThe Houston Symphony and Music Director Andrés Orozco-Estrada welcome back Russian pianist, Denis Kozhukhin, to the Jones Hall stage at 8 p.m. Nov. 17-18 and 2:30 p.m. Nov. 19 for Rachmaninoff's Rhapsody.

 

Known for his mesmerizing playing and maturity, Kozhukhin and Orozco-Estrada reunite for a program featuring three works inspired by the same haunting melody: the theme from Paganini's demonically difficult Caprice No. 24 for Solo Violin. A symbol of virtuoso technique, this melody inspired both Rachmaninoff's and Lutoslawski's showpieces for piano and orchestra as well as Blacher's purely orchestral fireworks. Orozco-Estrada continues his multi-season exploration of Ives' quintessentially American music with his Symphony No. 3, The Camp Meeting.

 

The Russian pianist rose to fame after winning the first-place prize at the 2010 Queen Elisabeth Competition in Brussels. Kozhukhin has performed with world-class orchestras including the London Symphony Orchestra, Berlin Orchestra, Chicago Symphony Orchestra and San Francisco Symphony.

 

The concert will take place at Jones Hall for the Performing Arts, 615 Louisiana Street, in Houston's Theater District. For tickets and information, please call (713) 224-7575 or visit www.houstonsymphony.org. Tickets may also be purchased at the Houston Symphony Patron Services Center in Jones Hall (Monday-Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.). All programs and artists are subject to change.
