Inspiring Artistes: Scherbakov plays Rachmaninov

The Centre for the Arts (CFA) is pleased to present Inspiring Artistes: Scherbakov Plays Rachmaninov at the University Cultural Centre (UCC) on 24 September 2003 .

Inspiring Artistes is a platform that features respected international artistes who are experts in their field. The unique aspect about these artistes is that besides being established performers, they are also experienced educators who have conducted masterclasses and clinics around the world.

CFA provides the opportunity for young and aspiring Singaporean musicians to learn and interact with these experts or simply be inspired by their dedication to their chosen art form.

To add to the artistic and cultural exchange, CFA actively encourages collaborative performances between the established artistes and aspiring musicians. Not only will this process be enriching for budding artistes but the collaborative outcome in the concerts will also be an inspiring experience for the audience.

The first of a series of three Inspiring Artistes concerts for this year features Russian Piano Virtuoso Konstantin Scherbakov. He has been hailed by critics as the world’s foremost interpreter of the entire Rachmaninov repertoire.

Scherbakov belongs to the latest generation of the Russian piano school. His outstanding virtuosity, sharp contemporary vision, aristocratic artistry, passion combined with restraint, high intellectual skill and freedom of expression has attracted the attention of both critics and audiences alike.

The year 2003 is a significant one for Rachmaninov as it marks 130 years since his birth, 60 years since his death and 20 years since the first Rachmaninov competition.

As part of the Rachmaninov 2003 Celebration, Scherbakov is on a world tour to perform in Italy , Beirut , Baden , Zurich , Moscow , Israel , Bucharest , Hong Kong , New Zealand and Lucerne . Singaporean audiences will now have the opportunity to catch his much anticipated performance as part of CFA’s offerings under Inspiring Artistes.

In keeping with the spirit of Inspiring Artistes concerts, Konstantin Scherbakov will conduct a masterclass for aspiring pianists as well as perform with the NUS Symphony Orchestra. The chance to accompany this consummate professional will provide ample inspiration for the student performers. The Orchestra will celebrate Russian Masters by performing the works of Mussorgsky, Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky.

Here are the details of the two concerts:
