“I adored the First Brahms Concerto Nikolai Lugansky opened a new side, and the Fifth (Symphony) Shostakovich was incredible. An encore performance of “Dawn” (ballet) “Cinderella” (composer Sergei) Prokofiev. What a joy that I heard it… All we have is music; today, she justified his appointment entirely,” said Ossetian.
