Belgrade Philharmonic Opens Online Season by Broadcasting First Music Picnic
The Belgrade Philharmonic is opening its online season with a real attraction – a recording of our first outdoor concert at the Ušće Grounds in 2017. Instead of our regular Friday evening concert at Kolarac Hall, our audience will be able to enjoy an exclusive replay of our Music Picnic, at the same time, from 8:00 p.m. on the Belgrade Philharmonic’s YouTube channel (Friday, March 27)
Our first outdoor concert with Chief Conductor Gabriel Feltz was a special memory for everyone. It also featured a special guest, our dear friend, the world-famous maestro, Zubin Mehta. On that occasion the Belgrade Philharmonic attracted more than 25,000 people with a repertoire selected by the audience.
Namely, in the weeks leading up to the concert, the audience had been asked to vote for what they would like to listen to at the open-air concert. So, on this online occasion, everyone will recall the convincing winners: Danzón by Márquez, Valse No.2 by Shostakovich, Sabre Dance by Khachaturian, Grlica by Hristić, Ravel’s Bolero, and many other compositions, as well as encore marches with both maestros taking turns conducting.
