Chamber Orchestra Opens a New Season

The concert season in the Grand Hall of the State Conservatory of Uzbekistan has started with a gala by the Turkiston Chamber Orchestra.

The concert proves to be remarkable in many ways. Music connoisseurs appraise highly the performance of Turkiston Orchestra, which delights them with diverse programs. This year is special for the orchestra – it turns 20. And all these years a brilliant musician Eldar Azimov leads the orchestra.

The evening was given over to classical music, which requires from performers emotional spending and novelty in interpretation. It has been well said that music gains a new ‘life’ only in the process of performance. However, it does not matter how genuine a score is, it is dead until a musician touches it. Fate of a work quite often depends on talent of a musician, his or her interpretation, and understanding of the idea.

The concert program included world famous classic products: overture to the opera ‘The Marriage of Figaro’, and Mozart’s symphony №40, Beethoven’s concerto №1 for piano with orchestra (soloist Sayyora Gafurova). The audience was hugely impressed with a rare ensemble coherency. Laureate of international contests, pianist Syyora Gafurova won the hearts of music connoisseurs with high expressive performance.

Organic repeat of the soloist’s playing and professional accompaniment in performing Beethoven’s composition hugely delighted the audience. Musician and conductor presented the listeners ‘their’ interpretation of Mozart – pretty modern, for which they were presented with a storm of the audience’s applauses, and bunches of flowers.
