It's not the first visit of the Rus­sian mu­si­cian to Azer­bai­jan's cap­i­tal.

In 2017, Do­gadin per­formed at the clos­ing of the 9th Mstislav Rostropovich In­ter­na­tional Fes­ti­val.

Sergey Do­gadin made his ma­jor de­but in 2002 with Vasily Pe­trenko and the St. Peters­burg Phil­har­monic Orches­tra. He suc­cess­fully per­formed­with such con­duc­tors as Valery Gergiev, Yuri Temirkanov, Vladimir Ashke­nazy, Vladimir Spi­vakov and Man­fred Ho­neck and share the stage with such artists as Elis­a­beth Leon­skaja, David Geringas, De­nis Mat­suev and Daniil Tri­fonov.

Do­gadin has won nu­mer­ous awards at many in­ter­na­tional com­pe­ti­tions, in­clud­ing the first prize at the Joseph Joachim In­ter­na­tional Vi­o­lin Com­pe­ti­tion in Hanover in 2015, the sec­ond prize at the first Shang­hai Isaac Stern Vi­o­lin Com­pe­ti­tion in 2016, and the first prize at the Sin­ga­pore In­ter­na­tional Vi­o­lin Com­pe­ti­tion in 2018.

Rauf Ab­dul­layev has been artis­tic di­rec­tor and chief con­duc­tor of the Azer­bai­jan State Sym­phony Orches­tra named af­ter Uzeir Ha­jibey for many years.

Hun­dreds of mu­sic lovers from France, Ger­many, U.S., Rus­sia, Great Bri­tain, Tur­key, Greece, Iraq, Egypt, Bel­gium, Italy, Fin­land, Aus­tria, Switzer­land, United Arab Emi­rates, Mex­ico and etc. are fa­mil­iar with his out­stand­ing per­for­mances.

Con­duc­tor pays spe­cial at­ten­tion to the per­for­mance of mu­si­cal com­po­si­tions by Azer­bai­jani com­posers. Many op­eras, bal­lets and sym­phonies by great na­tional com­posers were per­formed for the first time both in Azer­bai­jan and abroad un­der­his su­per­vi­sion. He is also the founder and the or­ga­nizer of clas­si­cal mu­sic fes­ti­vals such as “Mu­sic of the 20th Cen­tury” named af­ter Gara Garayev.

Rauf Ab­dul­layev has been awarded state and many other hon­orary awards and ti­tles dur­ing his ac­tive and un­tir­ing ca­reer. Also, dur­ing his ser­vice as the chief con­duc­tor of the Ankara Bal­let Theatre and Opera from 1993 to 1997, he was twice awarded the ti­tle of the Best Con­duc­tor of the Year of Tur­key.

This year, the Pres­i­dent of Azer­bai­jan Il­ham Aliyev signed an or­der on award­ing Rauf Ab­dul­layev with the Istiglal Or­der for great achieve­ments in the devel­op­ment and pro­pa­ganda of the Azer­bai­jani mu­si­cal cul­ture.

The con­cert pro­gram will fea­ture works by Hec­tor Ber­lioz and Py­otr Tchaikovsky.

Fan­tas­tic Sym­phony writ­ten by the French com­poser Hec­tor Ber­lioz will also sound at the con­cert.

The bril­liant com­poser cre­ated a pro­gram in the form of a script, with a de­tailed and vivid de­scrip­tion of all the events that were to un­fold be­fore the eyes of the pub­lic.

The sym­phony has five move­ments, in­stead of four as was con­ven­tional for sym­phonies of the time. Each move­ment de­picts an episode in the pro­tag­o­nist's life that is de­scribed by Ber­lioz in the pro­gram notes to the 1845 score.

More­over, Con­certo for vi­o­lin and orches­tra (D dur, op. 35) by P. I. Tchaikovsky will be pre­sented to the lis­ten­ers.

This work was widely rec­og­nized and be­came an in­te­gral part of Rus­sian mu­si­cal cul­ture. The bril­liant vir­tu­os­ity of the solo in­stru­ment part is com­bined here with gen­uine sym­phony, mu­sic tem­per­a­ment, bright­ness and rich­ness of color.

The con­cert con­sists of three parts in­clud­ing, Al­le­gro Moder­ato, Can­zonetta and Fi­nale Al­le­gro Vi­vacis­simo. The con­cert starts at 19:00. Tick­ets can be pur­chased at all ticket of­fices of the city and on the web­site iticket.az.

The Azer­bai­jan State Sym­phonic Orches­tra named af­ter Uzeyir Ha­jibeyli was formed in 1920 be­ing one of the first or­ches­tras in the Soviet Union, at the re­quest of com­poser Uzeyir af­ter whom it was later named. The orches­tra was or­ga­nized in July, 1920. The first master of the orches­tra was an ex­pe­ri­enced con­duc­tor M. I. Ch­ernyakhovski.
