World famous violinist Barnabás Kelemen will appear with the Belgrade Philharmonic and Chief Conductor Gabriel Feltz on two consecutive nights, at Kolarac Hall, on 6 and 7 December at 8:00 p.m. He will perform the intricate Violin Concerto No. 3 by Camille Saint–Saëns. The program will also feature works by Ludwig Van Beethoven and Leoš Janáček.
Barnabás Kelemen, an artist of intrinsic musicality and technique possessed only by the greatest masters, has performed in the world’s major concert halls, such as Carnegie Hall, the Royal Festival Hall, Concertgebouw, Suntory Hall, BOZAR and the Berlin Philharmonic. The Belgrade audience will have two opportunities to hear this master violinist and his music, played on the 1742 “Ex-Dénes Kovács” Guarneri violin on loan from the Hungarian Government.
On both nights, Chief Conductor Gabriel Feltz will lead the program in the sign of freedom-loving ideas. The program opens with Beethoven’s Leonore Overture No.3, which represents the musical pith of his opera Fidelio, whose plot is based on the hero being released from political imprisonment.
The magnificent fanfares from Janáček’s Sinfonietta will crown both concert nights. The work was written for the Sokol movement – a gymnastics organization that celebrated youth, sports, and national pride, which Janáček promoted throughout his entire life. Standing tickets are on sale at the Kolarac Box Office, from 7:00 p.m. – one hour before the concert.
