VALERY THE GREAT; ClassicalMusic


Byline: PATSY FULLER

CHARISMATIC Russian maestro Valery Gergiev will be in action in Coventry tomorrow.

Gergiev is hailed as one of the world's greatest and most sought-after conductors - and a glimpse at his diary shows just what this means.

He was on the podium in Tokyo on Tuesday, winding up a hectic tour of Japan with the celebrated Mariinsky Theatre Orchestra and he will be conducting more than 20 concerts in 10 different countries next month as he dashes to and from his homeland to major concert halls across Europe and beyond. In February, he's off to America and Canada for another whirlwind tour.

Gergiev is renowned for h passion and energy - so ma batons have flown out of h hand over the years that he now often conducts merely with a toothpick or a flutte of the fingers.

He will be at Warwick Ar Centre tomorrow with the London Symphony Orches for a gala concert which promises to be one of the highlights of the revamped Butterworth Hall's season.

It centres on French and Russian orchestra showpieces by Ravel, Debussy and Stravinksy but also includes Richard Strauss's oboe concerto, with Emanuel Abbuhl as soloist. Strauss wrote the concerto in 1945 and it was one of the last works he composed.

Gergiev has been music director of the LSO for two years and he will be giving a pre-concert talk, in conversation with a member of the orchestra, in the arts centre conference room at 6.45pm.

Tickets are available by calling the box office on 024 7652 4524. …
