Lahav Shani

conductor behind the piano 
  • Sun 7 May ’23
    20:15 - 22:00
    Jurriaanse Zaal

Lahav Shani is director-in-chief at the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra and, in a way, de Doelen’s conductor in residence. The last time we saw him behind the piano was during a concert with Martha Argerich, in which they performed the encore together behind one grand piano. Now he mounts the piano for his own recital. Four times Prokofiev: twice an early sonata combined with a sonata he composed during WWII. Prokofiev’s piano sonatas are like tiny rollercoasters, full of unexpected turns, loopings and descents. You can view this recital as Shani’s personal thema park, in which he invites us to thrilling attractions.
