L. van Beethoven:Violin Concerto (version for piano and orchestra)
G. Antheil:Jazz Symphony
P. Konjović:In the Country, symphonic variations
For the second time this season, our audience will have the opportunity to listen to Beethoven’s Concerto for violin and orchestra, except on this occasion in an interesting version for piano and orchestra, featuring the Belgrade Philharmonic and Korean pianist Claire Huangci. Interestingly, this version was also created by Beethoven’s quill, which was probably incited by the failure of the original premiere. Just as Beethoven has a special place in German music, in a way, a similar contribution to Serbian music was given by Petar Konjović, whose performances were the first in Serbian music: the first performed symphony, the first string quartet, solo concert … And the Symphonic Variations In the Country were the first orchestral variations in Serbian literature, which expand on a beautiful melody Let Me Be from Mokranjac’s Tenth Garland (choral rhapsody). George Antheil’s Jazz Symphony will show, for the first time in front of our concert audience, how a symphonic form can be treated in a jazz style.
