The Belgrade Philharmonic will perform with Guy Eshed, the first flutist of the Israeli Philharmonic and conductor Cristian Mandeal, at Kolarac Hall on Friday, December 10, at 8:00 p.m. Different images of the night unite all the music on our program featuring works by Mozart, Bernstein and Stravinsky.

The upcoming concert shows effusively the trend of this Belgrade Philharmonic season in which familiar musicians perform with new stars. Performing with the Belgrade Philharmonic for the first time will be Guy Eshed, the first flute of the Israeli Philharmonic and the Teatro del Maggio Musicale Fiorentino, led by Maestro Zubin Mehta. At the same time, Maestro Cristian Mandeal, the greatest Romanian conductor and former student of Herbert von Karajan and Sergiu Celibidache, with a career spanning over four decades, will be performing with the Belgrade Philharmonic for the 34th time!

The Belgrade Philharmonic will perform a very unusual program combination that is permeated with images of the night, from serenades, through insomnia, to horror. Mozart’s Serenata notturna brings grace and a festive atmosphere of outdoor parties, while Bernstein’s flute concerto Halil is in a completely opposite mood. Written for an Israeli flutist who died in the Yom Kippur War, this work brings difficult moments of the night – nightmares, insomnia, fears, but also the importance of art for life and hope for peace. The story of Stravinsky’s puppet Petrushka, which created a revolution in music history, culminates in the last scene of the night, with a tragic crime of passion caused by jealousy.

Tickets are on sale from Monday, December 6, at the Belgrade Philharmonic box-office as well as online.
