An Evening of Baroque at the Belgrade Philharmonic

The Belgrade Philharmonic will take an unusual step into the Baroque era at Kolarac Hall on Friday, February 7, at 8:00 p.m. “Baroque Master,” violinist Bernhard Forck, will appear in two roles – conducting the orchestra and playing Bach, Vivaldi, Rebel, and Scarlatti.

The Belgrade Philharmonic’s concert will not only sound different, but it will also look different, with far fewer musicians on stage than usual. Bernhard Forck will be concertmaster and he will also conduct an orchestra consisting of 29 musicians. This outstanding Baroque specialist, a member of the Berlin Academy of Ancient Music, is passionately interested in historical musical performance. He has brought some Baroque bows to be used by the orchestra to make the journey to this distant era even more compelling.

This concert is part of our #beethovenontimeline series, dedicated to the historical and social circumstances that affected Beethoven’s life and completely reflects the Baroque repertoire. Although the great masters of this period were no longer alive when Beethoven was born (1770), their works were performed and studied and their music was popular when Beethoven was growing up.

One hundred standing tickets will be on sale at the Kolarac Box Office, from 7:00 p.m., one hour before the concert.
