Conducting the Belgrade Philharmonic at Kolarac Hall on Friday, January 28, at 8:00 p.m. will be our former chief conductor, Maestro Uroš Lajovic. For the first time, young international cello star Harriet Krijgh will be performing Haydn’s Cello Concerto.
The Belgrade Philharmonic and Uroš Lajovic will take the audience on a concert journey through Classicism, first, with Mozart’s famous Overture for his opera Don Giovanni, the most famous seducer in the history of art, whose libretto was also helped by the famous Giacomo Casanova. This Mozart opera served as an inspiration to many artists, from Pushkin to Camus. The concert evening begins with the overture and ends with Beethoven’s Symphony No. 4.
The star of the concert will be Harriet Krijgh, one of the most exciting cellists of the younger generation. An exclusive artist of Deutsche Gramophone, she is a regular guest on concert stages throughout the world and plays the cello of Domenico Montagnana (Venice, 1723), whose scroll was made by Stradivari. Haydn’s Cello Concerto, one of the most famous compositions written for this instrument, will be played on this rare instrument, almost 300 years old. Tickets for Friday’s concert are on sale at our ticket-office as well as online
