Experience the true virtuoso on the recorder Lucie Horsch, on the concert conducted by Daniel Raiskin, on Friday, June 2 at Kolarac (8:00 PM). Prepare to be enchanted by a magnificent repertoire ranging from the Baroque era to the Romantic period, showcasing the works of Gabrieli, Vivaldi, Arban, Mahler, and Tchaikovsky.
As part of the On the Right Track Philharmonic season, the Orchestra comes to an irresistible city of Venice, taking the audience on a unique musical journey through different periods that have marked this place. Venice was once considered the European equivalent to Las Vegas, where creativity and freedom thrived, giving birth to the unique style of the Venetian School. The philharmonic concert begins with Gabrieli’s captivating Canzon septimi toni no. 2, followed by Vivaldi’s delightful compositions for the flautino and orchestra. The extraordinary Lucie Horsch will grace the stage with Arban’s Fantaisie and variations on the famous Carnival of Venice theme.
Lucie Horsch, a talented young Dutch star, single-handedly brings somewhat forgotten instrument back into the spotlight of the global music scene. As a prominent talent with her exceptional skills on the recorder, she has become highly sought-after artist on the international music scene, captivating audiences worldwide. She is also an exclusive artist signed with Decca Classics. In June 2020, Lucie received the prestigious Dutch Music Award, the highest honor bestowed upon classical musicians.
During the Romantic era, Venice served as a sanctuary for aristocrats and intellectuals from all corners of Europe, drawing inspiration for their artistic pursuits, especially during the enchanting carnival season. In the 20th century, Luchino Visconti beautifully intertwined this captivating city with Gustav Mahler’s music in his renowned film Death in Venice with the Adagietto from Symphony No. 5, which has since become an iconic piece of film music. On Friday, this composition will be brought to life by the Belgrade Philharmonic Orchestra, led by the resident guest conductor Daniel Raiskin’ baton. The concert reaches its grand finale with Tchaikovsky’s masterful symphonic work, Francesca da Rimini.
Please note that the concert dedicated to Venice is a sold-out event, but standing tickets will be available for purchase one hour prior to the performance, starting from 7:00 PM at the Kolarac box office.
