For Lovers 3
Edward Elgar translated the love salute to his fiancée into a short, charming piece for violin and piano, which was subsequently transcribed many times for various ensembles. Bernstein’s musical West Side Story, inspired by the story of Romeo and Juliette, achieved a cult status on the American music scene, its articles having been included in the standard symphonic repertoire owing to the suite called Symphonic Dances. The concert’s love nature will be complemented by Sergei Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2, featuring soloist Nikolai Demidenko and conducted by Uroš Lajovic.
