MANILA, Philippines—The Asian Institute of Management (AIM) presents internationally renowned pianist Raul Sunico in a rare performance that will put on spotlight the three piano concertos of Russian composer Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky happening at the Old Senate Hall of the National Museum of the Philippines, February 22, 4 p.m.
“Raul Sunico Performs Tchaikovsky: The Premiere Concert” is poised to set a world record as Sunico will perform the three concertos of the Russian master for the first time in one evening.
Sharing the stage with Sunico is the Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra, under the baton of Maestro Herminigildo Ranera. These world-class musicians will perform the three Tchaikovsky masterpieces—“Concerto no.1 in B-flat minor, op. 23”; “Concerto no.2 in G major, op.44”; and “Concerto no. 3 in E-flat major, op. 75.”
Concurrently president of the Cultural Center of the Philippines and Dean of the UST Conservatory of Music, Sunico earlier achieved worldwide recognition when he performed the four piano concertos of the Russian composer Sergei Rachmaninoff also in one evening. He has garnered acclaim around the world where he had performed in solo recitals as well as with the best orchestras throughout Europe, North America, Australia, Middle East, and Asia.
The evening is a celebration not only of Sunico’s brilliance as a musician but also of AIM’s excellence as an international graduate business school. Nearing its 50th anniversary, AIM sets its eyes on a vigorous future where it continues to enjoy a leadership status in the Asean region by mobilizing resources for its exciting campus development plans. Like Sunico, this pioneering graduate business school proudly stands on its rich heritage amid an Asean backdrop that rises on the global economic landscape.
