International Lutosławski Youth Orchestra

Ungeachtet dessen wird unter der Leitung von Ayyub Guliyev ausgelassen musiziert, der es beweglich, aber effizient versteht, Tempi und Klang zu balancieren.

Tcahikovsky - Capriccio Italien, Op. 45, Rachmaninoff - Rhapsody on the Theme of Paganini, Op. 43, Stravinsky - Firebird Suite

Conducted by maestro Ayyub Guliyev from Azerbaijan, "Rachmaninoff Celebrates 150" had a Russian theme overall, starting with Tchaikovsky's sparkling Capriccio Italien and concluding with Stravinsky's awe-inspiring The Firebird Suite (1919 version)... Stravinsky's The Firebird Suite is a fiendishly difficult orchestral showpiece to pull off in concert, not least because it is so universally known and adored. That hushed chromatic opening in double basses, and then violas, demands the coolest of stage-craft nerves, and the respective RBSO sections did a fine job here of setting up the requisite magical atmosphere, with that mesmerising natural harmonic glissandi effect in the string section particularly well-executed -- a novel effect that the composer was especially proud of when he introduced it to the sophisticated fin de siècle Parisian musical scene. Then ensued the veritable eruption of the firebird and its dance and the firebird's variation, ushered in by the ubiquitously precise playing of clarinet principal Vos Vaneesorn.

Mariinsky Theatre - Fikret Amirov - One Thousand and One Nights

Conductor Ayyub Guliyev, invited from Baku, is well acquainted with the score and skillfully reveals all its merits. His great achivement is making the Russian orchestra sound with no "accent", while performing Azerbaijani music.

The orchestra under Ayyub Guliyev sounded emotionally rich, musicians were able to clearly convey Amirov's folklore intonations, not previously very familiar to them. 
 

At the premiere Amirov's melodic music, with a national identity, sounded expressive and powerful thanks to the to the guest conductor from Baku Ayyub Guliyev.
