Ognjen Popović and Nenad Janković, the Belgrade Philharmonic’s distinguished members and soloists on the clarinet and bassoon, will perform at a concert at Kolarac Hall on Friday, 6 March, at 8:00 p.m. Under the direction of young conductor Felix Mildenberger, they will play the Concerto for Clarinet, Bassoon, and Orchestra, by C. Stamitz. The concert program also features works by Ana Sokolović and Johannes Brahms.
The two accomplished soloists will perform together the concerto by Carl Stamitz written for these two instruments. The audience will be able to enjoy the different colors of the clarinet and bassoon in this effective composition, and there is no better choice of soloists than Ognjen and Nenad for this charming piece, full of exuberance and humor.
This program from the #beethovenbro series dedicated to studying the influence of the famous composer on Serbian authors, opens with a work by Ana Sokolović. In her Concerto for Orchestra one can hear a contemporary echo of Beethoven’s ideas. This Serbian author is a prominent name on the Canadian and international music scene and has been proclaimed a national treasure of Quebec.
Our audience will also have the opportunity to meet a young conductor whose name already resonates throughout the world’s music scene. Felix Mildenberger is currently the assistant conductor of the London Symphony Orchestra and regularly collaborates with conductors such as Sir Simon Rattle, Francois-Xavier Roth, and Gianandrea Noseda. The Belgrade Philharmonic’s musicians met him during the Conductors’ Forum organized at this institution in 2018, after which he conducted the children’s philharmonic programs. The concert evening will end with Symphony No. 1 by Johannes Brahms.
One hundred standing tickets will be on sale at the Kolarac Box Office, from 7:00 p.m., one hour before the concert.
