David Geringas, the famous German cellist This night David Geringas, the famous German cellist, gives a concert in the Big Hall of St.Petersburg Academic Philarmonic.

David Geringas studied at the Moscow Conservatory and won the first prize and Gold Medal at the Tchaikovsky competition in 1970.

His regular pianist for recitals is his wife Tatjana, who graduated with him in Moscow. She was a student in the master class of Heinrich and Stanislav Neuhaus. David Geringas attaches great importance to his collaboration with Krzysztof Penderecki, Henry Dutilleux and others and was the first to perform music of Russian avant-garde composers such as Gubaidulina, Dennisow, Schnittke and Suslin in western countries. Since the early 1990s David Geringas has been responsible for extending the cello and piano repertoire by commissioning a great deal of new works. He gave the world premieres of the cello concertos by Sofia Gubaidulina, the Latvian composer Peteris Vasks and Erkki Sven Tüür, all dedicated to him. The Gubaidulina received its UK premiere at the 1998 BBC Proms, the Lepo Sumera’s Cello Concerto its world premiere by David Geringas in The Hague in May 1999 and this year he will give the first performances of Ned Rorem’s Cello Concerto which is being composed for him, co-commissioned by the Residentie Orchestra of The Hague and the Kansas City Symphony Orchestra.

This night David Geringas plays Symphony No.40 by Mozart, Romance for cello and orchestra and «Don Qixote», symphonic variations for cello and orchestra, by R. Strauss with St. Petersburg Academic Symphonic Orchestra conducted by Lutauras Balchunas.
