Kreisler Competition in Vienna, Krylov gives concerts at the Berlin and Munich Philharmonic, Vienna’s Musikverein and Konzerthaus, Venice’s Teatro La Fenice, Milan’s Teatro alla Scala, Tokyo’s Suntory Hall, the Buenos Aires Teatro Colón and other concert venues around the world; appears with Vienna, St. Petersburg, NHK Tokyo, the Czech Philharmonic and Hamburg Philharmonic orchestras, Milan’s Giuseppe Verdi Orchestra, Parma’s Filarmonica Toscanini, the English Chamber Orchestra, Salzburg’s Camerata Academica, etc.

“Mozart felt the audience turning back on him, so he tried to reclaim it with works that were guaranteed to succeed,” wrote Albert Einstein, an enthusiastic scholar of Viennese classicists. And that was exactly what the Piano Concerto No. 23 turned to be – a work of instant success (and also eternal fame). Mozart chose the key of A major, usually associated with “velvety” and luminous beauty. This work will be preceded by the overture to the opera Don Giovanni or, as Mozart called it, dramma giocoso (playful drama).

The music of one of the best-known Latvian composers, Pēteris Vasks, raises global and timeless questions about life and death, hatred and forgiveness, harmony and chaos. Critics describe the Concerto for Violin and Strings Tālā Gaisma, composed in 1996, as meditative, unearthly music. According to Vasks: “It’s a nostalgia with a touch of tragedy. Childhood memories, but also the glittering stars millions of light years away.”
