On Friday, May 24, at 8 PM in Kolarac Hall, the Belgrade Philharmonic Orchestra will perform, under the baton of conductor Daniel Raiskin, real blockbusters of classical music: violinist Daniel Rowland will present a new version of Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons, alongside another classical hit, Dvořák’s Slavonic Dances.

The true force of Vivaldi’s masterpiece is highlighted by contemporary composer Max Richter’s Recomposed by Max Richter: Vivaldi – The Four Seasons. Bridging centuries and epochs, Richter’s piece breathes new air of life into the original, recasting it in a postmodern and minimalist style. With Daniel Rowland on violin, this performance promises to be a true rock ‘n’ roll experience in a philharmonic setting. Rowland has successfully established himself on the international stage as an exceptionally versatile, charismatic, and adventurous performer with a broad repertoire. As noted by global critics: In this day and age, where it’s difficult to stand out amid the abundance of exceptional violinists, it’s safe to say that no one sounds like Rowland.

Under the baton of the Belgrade Philharmonic Orchestra’s regular guest conductor, Daniel Raiskin, the concert will culminate with one of the most popular works in classical music. Antonín Dvořák’s Slavonic Dances, Op. 46, will be performed in its entirety. These vivid dance pieces played a crucial role in establishing Dvořák’s international reputation. Their enduring popularity is evidenced by the fact that the concert on Friday is entirely sold out, however standing tickets will be available one hour before the concert, starting at 7 PM at the Kolarac box office.
