导赏:这场音乐会有着诸多看点,首当其冲的便是二度指挥中国爱乐乐团的吕绍嘉。2014年吕绍嘉首次指挥中国爱乐乐团,凭借对马勒第九交响曲的上乘演绎给北京观众留下了深刻的印象。见证双方二度合作的将是勃拉姆斯《海顿主题变奏曲》、贝多芬C大调三重协奏曲及第三交响曲“英雄”这三部德奥乐派的核心曲目,这也恰恰是吕绍嘉和中国爱乐乐团最擅长的领域,既能体现双方的基本功,更可以展示双方的艺术风格,毫无疑问这将是一次高水准的艺术对话。贝多芬三重奏协奏曲的三位独奏也是十分有趣的组合,钢琴家袁芳曾与中国爱乐乐团的室内乐组合合作,这场音乐会将是他首次与乐团合作演奏协奏曲,而小提琴独奏李沛与大提琴独奏赵云鹏则分别是上海交响乐团的首席与中国爱乐乐团的大提琴声部首席,且看三人如何诠释这部独一无二的三重协奏曲!(周皓,乐评人)
