    Kremerata Baltica and Georgy Osokin

    Performers: Georgy Osokin (piano), Chamber Orchestra Kremerata Baltica

    Two part concert

    Concert duration ~2 hours 


    Part I

    Pēteris Vasks. Musica dolorosa
    Bela Bartok. 2nd string quartet

    Part II

    Pēteris Vasks. "The Fruit of Silence”
    Frederic Chopin. Piano Concerto No. 2 in F minor, Op. 21

    The excellent interpreter of Fryderyk Chopin’s music, Georgy Osokin, is able to bring back the beauty of poetry and power of the truthfulness of art with his piano keyboard. The young pianist has become the resident guest artist of the chamber orchestra Kremerata Baltica. Alongside the French pianist Luca Debargue, Georgy is the first to be awarded this title by the famous chamber orchestra during its 22 years of existence. Georgy will perform the absolutely beautiful Piano Concerto No. 2 by Fryderyk Chopin. The opus is like an expressive monologue with an intimate confession of love, where the orchestra allows the piano part to shine brightly in the forefront, in a noble and careful manner. The rhythm worthy of rock music and Apollon-like spirit will prevail in Bela Bartok’s String Quartet No. 2 that was composed during the First World War. Bartok had the amazing ability to combine Hungarian music with modern techniques of composition, and the String Quartet No. 2 is his chamber music masterpiece. There will also be two opuses from the torch-bearer of Latvian music Pēteris Vasks – a purifying cry of pain for the strings with advancement towards the sky, ‘Musica Dolorosa’, and silent meditation about the path ’The Fruit of Silence’.

    Georgy Osokin, the youngest member of the dynasty of Osokin pianists, invites all to experience the depth of interpretation and serious approach towards music in the musical space he creates. “He has a rare talent for interpreting Chopin’s music,’’ says the renowned pianist and pedagogue Sergei Babayan. In turn, the legendary Russian pianist Dmitri Bashkirov says: “This young musician is exceptionally talented.’’ 

    After the finals of the Chopin Competition 2015, he became a sensation, with critics using epithets such as “unpredictable, too revolutionary to be a winner’’. Since participating in the contest Georgy has been invited to perform in several countries of the world and prestigious festivals.  Chopin’s music is a special trademark of the pianist.   British record label Piano Classics released the solo album of Georgy with Chopin’s late works, earning high appraisal from renowned Canadian, French and German music publications.

    In 2016, he became the youngest recipient of the Latvian Grand Music Award in the category “Young Artist of the Year” in the history of this award. At the age of 10 he debuted with an orchestra. Soon after he became a laureate in the IX International Alexander Scriabin piano competition in Paris (2009). He received the Fryderyk Chopin grant in the XXII International Competition in Monza (Italy), and in 2014 he won the IX International Competition of Young Pianists in China. He achieved first place in the Manhattan International Music Competition in New York (2018). Georgy has performed in the Tokyo Metropolitan Theatre concert hall, in Berlin’s Konzerthaus, in Saint-Petersburg’s Philharmonic Hall, in the Fine Arts Theatre in Vancouver, substituting the globally-renowned pianist Nelson Freire in Birmingham Town Hall, and many other places. 

    In 1997, the legendary Austrian Lockenhaus Chamber Music Festival witnessed a small revolution: renowned, outstanding violinist Gidon Kremer introduced the world to a completely new orchestra — chamber orchestra Kremerata Baltica — with musicians from the Baltic countries: Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia.  With its rich sounding, energetic and joyful performance the orchestra conquered the hearts of the sophisticated audience and brought another kind of life to the festival.

    The Kremerata Baltica educational project, with long-term goals, was the gift of Kremer to himself on his 50th birthday. It is a way of the genius passing his knowledge on to new musicians and inspiring musical growth in this region, without compromising artistic and professional standards. During its existence this group of talented musicians has evolved into one of the best international chamber orchestras in the world and earned an impeccable reputation, performing in the world’s most important concert halls with excellent musicians on a regular basis.
