A philharmonic concert mix of jazz and classical music

Chief Conductor Gabriel Feltz will be with the Belgrade Philharmonic again at Kolarac Hall on Friday, November 19, at 8:00 p.m. The program will present an unusual combination of jazz and classical music, featuring pianist Annika Treutler, who has already played for the Belgrade audience.

One of the most promising pianists of the younger generation, Annika Treutler will be performing with the Belgrade Philharmonic for the third time. Her previous appearances were the result of unforeseen circumstances, as Annika heroically “jumped in” to cover for artists prevented from performing in earlier philharmonic seasons. This refined pianist left an exceptional impression on both the audience and the Belgrade Philharmonic and after playing piano concertos by Clara Schumann and W.A. Mozart, this time she will be performing Johannes Brahms’ monumental Piano Concerto No. 2.

Our musicians will show just how energetic the Belgrade Philharmonic can be by performing a work by Swiss composer Rolf Liebermann called Furioso. Although premiered more than seven decades ago, this mix of jazz and classical forms is still an extravaganza and a real treat for fans of modern and rhythmic sounds.

The performance of Chief Conductor Gabriel Feltz and the Belgrade Philharmonic will be crowned by Strauss’s masterful symphonic poem Death and Transfiguration, in which the composer effectively evokes the drama of man’s last battle, death, and the salvation of the soul. Tickets for the concert are on sale at the Belgrade Philharmonic’s ticket office as well as online as of Monday, November 15.
