P. Hindemith: Symphonic Metamorphosis of Themes by Carl Maria von Weber
М. Ravel: Bolero
The topic of the second concert for megalomaniacs are variations. For all admirers of this musical form, we have prepared four pieces by authors of entirely diverse styles, which treat the form of variations in different ways. Thus, we will listen to Rachmaninoff and Lutoslawski, both of whom developed Paganini’s themes, each in his own frame of reference; Hindemith, who explored musical motifs of Carl Maria von Weber and, lastly, Ravel, whose Bolero is nowadays considered one of the most interesting and, at the same time, most famous pieces based on variations in the entire history of music.
