On 26 October in Novosibirsk the Russian premiere of the Concert for piano with orchestra by Krzysztof Penderecki took place. The composition was performed by Novosibirsk academic symphony orchestra under the direction of the author, Alexander Guindin was the soloist.

Maestro Penderecki told that in 2001 he was occupied by composing of Capriccio for piano with orchestra. «At this time there an act of terrorism in New York took place. It shocked me very much. And I decided that at that moment there was not a moment for Capriccio, so I changed the concept of composition».
