Artistry on over three centuries old violin.
Once again under the baton of its former chief conductor Uros Lajovic, the Belgrade Philharmonic Orchestra will perform on Friday, December 9, at Kolarac Hall, starting from 8 p.m. After long twenty years, violinist Arabella Steinbacher will take the stage again before the Belgrade audience, performing one of the most famous pieces of all time – Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto.
Internationally acclaimed artist and one of the leading soloists of today, the renowned German violinist Arabella Steinbacher is known for her diverse repertoire. She regularly performs in the biggest concert halls around the world with maestros such as Mehta, Jurowski, Gergiev, Petrenko. She will be performing with the Belgrade Philharmonic Orchestra again after two decades, playing Mendelssohn’s famous Concerto for violin and orchestra on a 1716 Booth Stradivarius violin.
The concert, under the direction of Uros Lajovic, celebrates Tel Aviv and will include works inspired by Jewish culture. The tone will be set by Overture on Hebrew Themes by Sergei Prokofiev. After Mendelssohn, coming from a renowned Jewish family from Germany, the BPO will perform a not-so-often-staged piece, the Symphony No.2 by Kurt Weill, a German composer who grew up in a religious Jewish family.
