Cellist Clemens Hagen will make his first appearance with the Belgrade Philharmonic at Kolarac Hall on Friday, 14 February, at 8:00 p.m. Under the baton of Former Chief Conductor Uroš Lajovic, the concert program includes works by Beethoven, Haydn and Brahms.
The #beethovenrules concert series begins very unusually, in a chamber music atmosphere, with only two musicians on stage. The name of the series completely complements the performance of Clemens Hagen, who will first play Beethoven’s Sonata for Cello and Piano together with pianist Natalija Mladenović, followed by Haydn’s Cello Concerto No. 2 accompanied by the Belgrade Philharmonic. Hagen plays on a Stradivari cello from 1698.
Clemens Hagen’s versatile career includes performances with internationally renowned orchestras, such as the Berlin Philharmonic, the Vienna Symphony Orchestra, the Royal Concertgebouw from Amsterdam, the Camerata Salzburg, and many others. Hagen’s chamber music partners include names such as Martha Argerich, Evgeny Kissin, Mitsuko Uchida, Gidon Kremer.
The program ends with Symphony No. 2 by Johannes Brahms, the greatest follower of Beethoven’s ideas.
One hundred standing tickets will be on sale at the Kolarac Box Office one hour before the concert (from 7:00 p.m.)
