ArtistsTra Nguyen (piano)
Prague Radio Symphony Orchestra
British-Vietnamese Tra Nguyen has performed worldwide at important venues, such as Queen Elizabeth Hall, Tokyo Opera City, Hong Kong City Recital Hall, Cadogan Hall and Wigmore Hall. Her imaginative programming balances core repertoire and lesser-known music, winning critical praise. Her recordings of Joachim Raff’s piano music have earned wide critical acclaim, including an Album of the Week award by The Independent. Tra Nguyen studied with Lev Naumov at the Moscow Conservatory and with Christopher Elton at the Royal Academy of Music. She was awarded the ARAM (Associate of the Royal Academy of Music) for her “significant contribution to the music profession” in 2013.
Kerry Stratton has conducted orchestras in Europe, North America and Asia including the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra, the Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra, the Slovak Radio Symphony Orchestra, the Moscow Symphony Orchestra, the Prague Radio Symphony Orchestra, and many others. Stratton won the 2000 Masaryk Award for his services to Czech and Slovak culture and was decorated by the Czech government in 2007 at Cernin Palace, Prague, with the Gratias Agit Award. He is currently conductor and music director of the Toronto Concert Orchestra.
Established in 1926, the Prague Radio Symphony Orchestra (PRSO) is a creative and versatile ensemble at the forefront of Czech music making. The orchestra has worked with a distinguished list of composers including Honegger, Khachaturian, Krenek, Penderecki, Prokofiev and Respighi as well as many of the world’s great conductors and soloists.
‘Nguyen’s interpretations of Raff are peerless. She inhabits the music. As this series has progressed, so has our indebtedness to her for shining a light on such an important part of Raff’s oeuvre. Unreservedly recommended.’ – Raff.org (The Essential Raff)
