    compilée par Yuri Temirkanov

    Dans un ouvrage de 1976, le psychologue Bruno Bettelheim montrait l’importance des contes de fée dans le développement de l’enfant. Le fait est que les contes non seulement éveillent l’imagination, mais aussi en appellent au sentiment de responsabilité et séparent le bien du mal. Yuri Temirkanov et le Philharmonique de Saint-Pétersbourg ont décidé de prendre Bettelheim au mot et présenteront au festival dédié à l’enfance des extraits de deux œuvres inspirées d’un conte de fée : Le Conte du tsar Saltan de Rimski-Korsakov, avec son fameux Vol du bourdon, et Casse-noisette de Tchaïkovski, autre page célèbre entre toutes où le compositeur fait œuvre de pionnier en introduisant un nouvel instrument dans l’orchestre : le célesta. On restera dans le répertoire russe avec le jeune pianiste Sergueï Redkin qui a fait sensation lors de ses débuts au festival d’été 2017 en interprétant deux concertos de Prokofiev et fut immédiatement réinvité. Il jouera cette fois-ci le légendaire Deuxième Concerto de Rachmaninov.

    Orchestre philharmonique de Saint-Pétersbourg

    The St. Petersburg Philharmonic, Russia’s oldest orchestra, was founded in 1882 at the court of Tsar Alexander III. The ensemble soon developed an artistically unique profile beyond its responsibilities at representative and ceremonial occasions. Richard Strauss, Arthur Nikisch, Alexander Glazunov, and Serge Koussevitzky conducted concerts in the first decades of its existence. Following the October Revolution in 1917, the organizational format and mission changed: the orchestra was nationalized and turned into the Petrograd Philharmonic in 1921; in 1924 it was renamed the Leningrad Philharmonic State Symphony Orchestra. Prominent guest conductors remained loyal to the ensemble even in the first years of the Soviet Union, including Otto Klemperer, Bruno Walter, Ernest Ansermet, and Felix Weingartner. Its repertoire expanded to include many contemporary works, from Stravinsky through the Second Viennese School to Hindemith, Honegger, and Poulenc. Under the direction of Evgeny Mravinsky, who directed the Philharmonic for fifty years, from 1938 to 1988, the ensemble advanced to become one of the primary exponents of Russian music. Dmitri Shostakovich in particular enjoyed a close relationship with the orchestra and its leader: a majority of his works received their world premieres from them. Acclaimed guest conductors during the Mravinsky era were Kurt Sanderling, Gennady Rozhdestvensky, Georg Solti, Igor Markevitch, and Mariss Jansons. Since 1988, Yuri Temirkanov has helmed the St. Petersburg Philharmonic, as the orchestra again became known in 1991. The musicians have also regularly toured around the world since then – from New York to Tokyo, from the Salzburg Festival to the den BBC Proms.

    LUCERNE FESTIVAL (IMF) debut on 5 September 1992, with Yuri Temirkanov conducting Tchaikovsky's Manfred Symphony and Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition.

    Yuri Temirkanov

    The musical career of the Russian conductor Yuri Temirkanov, who was born in 1938 in Nalchik in the foothills of the Caucasus, has been closely linked with the city of St. Petersburg. He moved to what was then known as Leningrad at the age of 13 to take up his studies in violin and viola, later completing Ilya Musin’s conducting class at the Conservatory. Temirkanov won the All-Soviet National Conducting Competition in 1966 and was entrusted with leading the Moscow Philharmonic Orchestra on a tour through Europe and America. He took on his first leadership position with the Leningrad Symphony Orchestra in 1968 and was appointed to head the Kirov Theater, known today as the Mariinsky Theater, in 1976. For a dozen years, he was responsible for guiding this acclaimed company and also appeared there as a director. Since 1988 he has served as head of the St. Petersburg Philharmonic, which he conducts on tours all over the world. Temirkanov has also had a successful career in the West. He helmed the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in London from 1992 to 1998 as well as the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra from 2000 to 2006, and he was music director of the Teatro Regio in Parma from 2010 to 2012. Temirkanov has additionally conducted the Vienna and Berlin Philharmonics, the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra Amsterdam, the Dresden Staatskapelle, the London Symphony Orchestra, and La Scala in Milan; in the United States, he has led the major orchestras of New York, Philadelphia, Boston, Chicago, Cleveland, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. Yuri Temirkanov has been awarded all four degrees of the Russian Order “For Merit for the Country.” In Italy, he received the Premio Abbiati in 2003 and in 2007 and, in 2014, the Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli Prize. In the fall of 2015, he was named Honorary Conductor of the Orchestra dell’Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia.

    Sergueï Redkine

    Sergei Redkin was born in 1991 in Krasnoyarsk, Siberia, where he began studying piano at the age of six at the State Music Academy, also taking courses early on in improvisation and composition. In 2004 he moved to St. Petersburg to undertake studies at the Rimsky-Korsakov Conservatory, first in the Special School for the Highly Talented and then, starting in 2009, as a regular student in the class of Alexander Sandler. He continued his composition studies with Alexander Mnatsakanyan, one of the last pupils of Shostakovich. Redkin received a scholarship from the House of Music starting in 2011 and took part several times in the Lake Como International Piano Academy, where he worked with such figures as Dmitri Bashkirov, Peter Frankl, and Fou Ts’ong. He won the International Maj Lind Piano Competition in Helsinki in 2012, the Prokofiev Competition in St. Petersburg in 2013, and the bronze medal at the International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow in 2015. Valery Gergiev subsequently engaged him for performances with the Mariinsky Orchestra in Paris, New York, and Mexico and invited him to take part in a Prokofiev marathon as part of his “MPHIL 360°” Festival in Munich, where Redkin gave accounts of the composer’s last two piano sonatas. He has performed recitals and chamber music not only in Moscow, St. Petersburg, and various other Russian cities but also in Germany, Austria, France, Poland, Finland, Sweden, and Switzerland. In the 2017-18 season, he made his debuts with the Moscow State Symphony Orchestra and the Philharmonia Orchestra; he additionally performed at the Bruckner House in Linz, the Ruhr Piano Festival, and the Kissingen Piano Olympics, as well as in Basel and Brussels. Sergei Redkin has also written a number of compositions, especially in the areas of piano and chamber music.

    LUCERNE FESTIVAL debut on 2 September 2017 in the Fourth and Fifth Piano Concertos of Sergei Prokofiev as part of the Mariinsky Orchestra’s Prokofiev marathon under Valery Gergiev.
