A Few Steps To Heaven
For the 2014/2015 season, Berlin’s Konzerthaus will be graced by the presence of Russian pianist Arcadi Volodos, this year’s artist in residence. Initially trained as a singer, Volodos soon shifted his focus to conducting, and only started to seriously devote himself to piano at the age of 15, rapidly climbing up to the highest spheres of piano performance. On 16 April, he will be performing Beethoven’s Concerto for Piano and Orchestra n. 3 and Shostakovich’s 7th Symphony with the Konzerthausorchester Berlin, under the baton of Michael Sanderling. www.konzerthaus.de.
