Andrew Constantine, conductor
Sergey Khatchatryan, violin
Winner of Belgium’s 2005 Queen Elizabeth Competition and hailed by critics as “the kind of poet you hope to find” and “sensational,” renowned young violinist Sergey Khatchatryan makes his BSO debut. The program offers Hailstork’s Intrada, Sibelius lyrical Violin Concerto and a pairing of two Prokofiev interpretations of classic stories.
Due to the death of close friend Andrei Petrov, Maestro Temirkanov deeply regrets that he is unable travel to Baltimore from his home in Russia, and has cancelled the first two of four concert engagements in March with the Baltimore Symphony. BSO Associate Conductor Andrew Constantine will conduct the March 2 concert featuring violinist Sergey Khachatryan performing Sibelius’ Violin Concerto; the program for this concert will remain unchanged. Andrew previously served as the BSO’s Assistant Conductor in the 2004-2005 season, and was promoted to Associate Conductor for 2005-2006.
