The Piano Concerto op.35 was written in 1933, shortly after Shostakovich had completed his opera Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk. It is the work of an as yet carefree 26-year-old composer, revealing the full glory of his talent, according to
the pianist Yefim Bronfman.
“When an audience smiles or even laughs during the performance of my works, this a source of great satisfaction to
me.” – Dmitri Shostakovich
In 1999, just in time for the fiftieth anniversary of the Symphony Orchestra of the Bavarian Radio, the chamber orchestra, made up of its own members, was founded at the initiative of concert master Radoslaw Szulc and bassist Karl Wagner. Its repertoire focuses on literature specifically for string orchestra. Wind soloists from the symphony orchestra are called in at need for smaller-scale symphonies and solo concertos.
Born in 1984, in Bulgaria, Evgeni Bozhanov completed his studies in Essen and Düsseldorf (Germany) with Prof. Boris Bloch and Prof. Georg Friedrich Schenck. His international career launched following top prizes at international competitions including the Sviatoslav Richter International Piano Competition in Moscow, Queen Elisabeth Competition in Brussels, Van Cliburn International Piano Competition in Fort Worth, Texas and International Chopin Competition in Warsaw.
