The Belgrade Philharmonic will offer its audience a spectacular program inspired by romance in the true French style, at Kolarac Hall on Friday, December 3, at 8:00 p.m. Conductor Leo McFall, popular cellist Kian Soltani, and the Belgrade Philharmonic will be performing Romantic classical works including Romeo and Juliet and Bolero.
Our next Philharmonic Friday is an ideal opportunity for a romantic outing and for enjoying the musical portraits of the most famous love couples, from early Romanticism to the 20th century. The tragic loves of Romeo and Juliet by Hector Berlioz and Pelleas and Melisande by Clause Debussy will be completed by a romantic Concerto for Cello and Orchestra by Edouard Lalo, performed by the fantastic Kian Soltani.
The audience will especially look forward to the guest performance of this cellist, since on the eve of the previous time when he was supposed to perform in the 2020 season, the beginning of the pandemic closed all concert halls. The New York Times evaluates Kian Soltani as an outstanding cellist and the famous classical music magazine Gramophone describes his playing as pure perfection. He has been invited to play with the world’s leading orchestras and conductors, which has turned him from a rising star into one of the most talked about cellists today.
With the intention of presenting a new generation of young conductors, the Belgrade Philharmonic will be performing under the baton of Leo McFall, who has an excellent reputation as a conductor of both orchestral and opera repertoire. With the help of the energetic McFall, Maurice Ravel’s spectacular Bolero will make this attractive concert shine. Tickets are on sale from Monday, November 29, at the Philharmonic box-office as well as online.
