KharkivMusicFest-2020: Chamber concert of Festival Orchestra’s soloists
A rationale follow-up of the KharkivMusicFest-2020 inaugural concert and Festival Orchestra’s performance will be a chamber concert of its most illustrious members. Musicians from a variety of countries will assemble again on the same stage, in order to play the chamber programme: works for numerous ensembles (quartet, quintet, sextet and octet).
It is not a novel idea to assemble distinguished musicians from various countries into a unique group for Festival Orchestra, as well as hosting a soloists’ chamber concert isn’t new either. This is a tradition of many world-renowned festivals of academic music, such as Verbier and Lucerne festivals in Switzerland.
The chamber concert of Festival Orchestra’s soloists is a myriad of different instrumental ensembles, as well as music styles and epochs performed by prominent musicians. It’s more than 20 musicians from 14 different countries and a broad programme — from Beethoven and Brahms, to Prokofiev and Shostakovich; from piano and string quartet to a wind quintet.
Musicians, which will perform in this concert are participants of world-class ensembles and orchestras: Szymanowski Quartet (Poland) and Doležal Quartet (Czech Republic), musicians from NorrlandsOperan (Sweden), Czech National Symphony Orchestra, Istanbul State Symphony Orchestra, Latvian National Symphony Orchestra, Estonian National Symphony Orchestra, among others.
Programme for 29th of March will include:
Ludwig van Beethoven. Quartet No. 7, “Razumovsky”, Op. 59, No. 1, Part 2 (?)
Gustav Mahler. Piano Quartet in A minor
Jacques Ibert. Three Short Pieces for Wind Quintet
