The Belgrade Philharmonic has prepared two concerts with the brilliant violinist Robert Lakatoš, at Kolarac Music Hall, on Thursday and Friday, January 16 and 17, at 8:00 p.m. under the baton of Former Chief Conductor Uroš Lajovic. The program includes works by Rossini, Korngold, and Mendelssohn.
The young violinist from Novi Sad, Robert Lakatoš, will play again with the Belgrade Philharmonic after a dazzling performance he had with the orchestra in 2018. In the opinion of famous violinist Julian Rachlin, Lakatoš is considered to be one of the most promising young artists of his generation, whose music is in the style of the old violin-playing tradition. Lakatoš will demonstrate his temperament in Korngold’s Violin Concerto, which evokes a special Hollywood atmosphere. Known as a composer of film music, Korngold is the creator of scores for famous films such as The Sea Hawk, The Prince and the Pauper, and The Adventures of Robin Hood, for which he received an Oscar in 1938.
Instead of the previously announced conductor, Jun Märkl, the orchestra will be conducted by Uroš Lajovic on both nights. The concert opens with Rossini’s famous William Tell Overture and closes with Mendelssohn’s Symphony No. 4, known as the Italian. Tickets for the concert on Thursday are still available, and for the concert on Friday, 100 tickets will be on sale at the Kolarac Box Office from 7:00 p.m., one hour before the concert.
