Victoria Borisova-Ollas: two Russian premières

Posted by Johannes Feigl on 31 March 2015 (comments: 1)

Victoria Borisova-Ollas (c) Universal Edition, Eric Marinitsch“With her expressive and methaphysical attitude, Victoria Borisova-Ollas is absolutely unique in Sweden. In her Symphony No. 1, there is the same nervous touch, the same high tension and hot-temperedness, the same passion for an almost erotic game, with colliding harmonies and extended climaxes, as in Skriabin`s Le divine poème. The excitement lasts through the whole piece. Borisova-Ollas is able to create a charged atmosphere and she knows perfectly well how to use her weapons.” (Thomas Anderberg, Dagens Nyheter)

Tonight pianists Ludmila Berlinskaya and Nikolai Mazhara, conductor Nikolai Alexeev and the Saint Petersburg Philharmonia present the Russian premières of Victoria Borisova-Ollas’ Symphony No. 1 and her fantasia on the themes by Robert and Clara Schumann titled Wunderbare Leiden at the Saint Petersburg Philharmonia.
