The May 15 concert, with maestro Dmitry Polyakov, will feature Beethoven’s “4th Symphony”, John Stafford Smith’s “National Anthem”, Franck’s “Lesd Djins”, “Night on Bald Mountain” by Mussorgsky, “The Skaters” by Meyerbeer, and Arlen and “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” by Harburg with soloist Melissa Solomon.
Polyakov represents the modern landscape of the classical music industry –
the artistic leader with an authentic vision as a performer of classical music masterpieces of all genres. He is the person who embodies the great Russian musical school, the Moscow Conservatory, which brought to the world the greatest musical names of Rachmaninoff, Richter, Rostropovich, and others.
“Polyakov has a comprehensive musical education, international experience, and symphonic and operatic conducting skills,” said Carol Skjaerris, executive director of the Scottsdale Philharmonic. “He is a professional who can inspire all members of the artistic and management teams to reach new horizons of artistic success. Polyakov holds the keys to making any orchestra the “diamond” among arts organizations in the classical music industry, and leaving a notable mark on music history and the community. »
“The introduction of guest conductor Dmitry Polyakov was well received by concert audiences in February and March,” says Skjaerris. “Dmitry is brilliant and amazing to watch. He is extraordinary and powerful when directing the movements.
“We are thrilled to have Dimitry’s expertise to help us take our orchestra to the next level,” said Joy Partridge, co-founder of the Scottsdale Philharmonic. “Our musicians love working with him and performing in front of live audiences in 2022. Be sure to get your tickets now for our concert on May 15.”
