The evening’s program will open with Rondo for flute
by genius Mozart.
Although Mozart was rather cautious about the flute, believing it lacked intonation and technical data, he wrote many brilliant works for the instrument that became masterpieces of the flute repertoire. The lyrical melodies of the next piece in the program — Rondo Capriccioso
by «19th century Mozart» Mendelssohn
, arranged by Abram Yampolsky
for violin, will take the audience into a magical world of fairies and elves. Continuing the program there will be Tchaikovsky’s
most popular Melancholy Serenade
for violin, arranged by Denis Buryakov
for flute, and the brilliant Waltz-Scherzo for violin
, which combines lyrical character and vivid imagery with virtuoso technique, which demands a masterful command of the instrument from the interpreter. Next, the flute will play again with Andante Pastoral et Scherzettino
by French composer Paul Taffanel.
In his time, he was known primarily as a teacher and excellent flutist virtuoso, whose playing was marked by refined elegance, flexibility, and sensuality. These traits are inherent in his own compositions as well. Three wonderful waltzes by Austrian composer Fritz Kreisler Liebesfreud
(Love's Joy), Liebesleid
(Love's Sorrow), and Schön Rosmarin
(Lovely Rosemary) from a set Alt-Wiener Tanzweisen
(Old Viennese Melodies) will take part in the concert. Kreisler was the one who brought into concert practice the performance of miniatures as an independent part of the program; previously they had only been played as an encore. The evening’s program will conclude with Schumann’s Symphonic Etudes
, created not simply as technical pieces, but as virtuoso artistic sketches with orchestral sound.December 31, 2021 The concert starts at 4.00 p.m.
