Marina Yakhlakova - Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker - Extra Concert

Marina Yakhlakova

"There is something very mysterious about her; she has a very deep soul," says master pianist Louis Lortie about Marina Yakhlakova. No wonder that this winner of the Liszt Competition of Weimar (2011) always makes an impression wherever she plays. At the Bösendorfer Imperial of the Edesche Concert Hall she tells her story with fairytale-like music by Tchaikovsky, Brahms and Bach

Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker

With Tchaikovsky's ballet the Nutcracker you listen to one of his most famous pieces. Because the story takes place during Christmas, you often hear the music around the holidays. But the piece is so beautiful that you can enjoy it at any time. Marina Yakhlakova plays the piano version that pianist Mikhail Pletnev made of the Nutcracker. Of course this includes the most famous pieces from the ballet, such as the 'Dance of the Sugar Fairy' and the picturesque 'Intermezzo'

Brahms' First Piano Sonata

The first blow is worth a downhill, so Brahms played high when he played his First Piano Sonata. The twenty-year-old Brahms was so satisfied with it that he had the piece printed as his first composition, opus 1. Everything that makes Brahms Brahms is in it: compelling melodies, driving rhythms and a good dose of musical poetry. Especially in the lilting slow part you can hear that. Brahms composed a number of brilliant variations on the German folk song 'Stiekem komt de maan op' (Secretly the moon rises). But what makes Brahms' First Piano Sonata especially impressive are the breakneck passages full of finger-blowing virtuosity. Under the hands of Marina Yakhlakova that will surely be fireworks!
