ARTISTS ON THE FRONT LINE

 
VALERY GERGIEV, CONDUCTING THE MARIINSKY THEATRE ORCHESTRA, PALMYRA
 

On May 5th 2016, a special concert was given in the historic Palmyria Amphitheatre, by the Mariinsky Theatre Orchestra, conducted by Valery Gergiev to commemorate the recent liberation of this ancient Greco-Roman UNESCO heritage site by Russian Military forces, and also to honour the memory of a Russian soldier, 26 year old Alexander Prokheranko, who sacrificed his life in an airstrike which he had authorized, after he had been ambushed by jihadists

Valery Gergiev has been Principal Conductor of the Mariinsky Theatre Orchestra since 1988. In 1997, he served as Principal Conductor of the Metropolitan Opera, New York, and in 2005, he succeeded Sir Colin Davis, as Chief Conductor of the London Symphony Orchestra

This special concert was put on as part of a humanitarian effort aimed at encouraging PEACE and UNITY through MUSIC.
Valery Gergiev spoke of the great hope that music offered in the fight against the barbarians who have been determined to destroy unique historical artefacts through hateful jihadist ideology

Russian President, Vladimir Putin, relayed his speech from Socchi, and once more emphasised the Russian involvement in the Syrian Civil War as a battle aimed at ‘ridding civilization of the terrible evil of terrorism’

■ Programme:

1. CHACONNE for unaccompanied violin from Partita No.2, by Bach
performed by Pavel Milyukov (b.1984),
