The legendary pianist Ivo Pogorelich will hold a recital at Rector’s Palace @ this year’s Dubrovnik Summer Festival, on August 18, starting at 9. 30 pm.
Maestro Pogorelich has marked the classical music scene of our time. His unique musical talent and innovative approach have placed him among the most original music minds of today. Pogorelich’s adventurous spirit, valued for the lucidity in his discovery of new capacities of musical expression, is cloaked in pianism of the highest aesthetic value, inimitable virtuosity and technical mastery. His evocative interpretations, shaped by a refined music taste, the likes of which are rare in our time, have broadened the horizons of the interpretation and understanding of piano literature by setting new standards for pianistic interpretation. Thanks to his uncompromising artistic criteria and dedicated search for the ideal of music expression, Pogorelich has, in over four decades of playing, realised authentic achievements, appreciated by both audiences and critics alike, while his concerts all over the world have gained the status of eagerly-awaited cult events.
In the 2018/2019 season, virtuoso Pogorelich celebrates both his 60th birthday and 40 years of his career.
