The Malta Philharmonic Orchestra have unfortunately had to withdraw from this performance on 28 November. We are however delighted that the Romanian National Philharmonic Orchestra, Filarmonica Brasov has agreed to step in and support Maxim Vengerov. The programme will now be as follows.
Sibelius Karelia Suite, Op.11
Shor Symphonic Prelude
(commissioned piece, world premiere)
Shor Seascapes for Violin and Orchestra
Prokofiev Violin Concerto No.1 in D major, Op.19
Tchaikovsky "Romeo and Juliet" Fantasy Overture, TH 42, ČW 39
Brasov Philharmonic Orchestra
Maxim Vengerov, violin
Sergey Smbatyan, conductor
Maxim Vengerov has been a musical force of nature for the last 30 years. As an acclaimed virtuoso violinist, he has conquered the classical world. Alongside the Romanian National Philharmonic Orchestra, Filarmonica Brasov and celebrated Armenian conductor Sergey Smbatyan, here he'll take centre stage in contemporary composer Alexy Shor's Seascapes, a mellifluous and evocative work in four movements that combines haunting melodic lines with complex technical passages, before delighting in a combination of playfulness and depth with Prokofiev’s First Violin Concerto. To start off the concert meanwhile, Smbatyan and the Romanian National Philharmonic Orchestra, Filarmonica Brasov will perform Sibelius’s sharply evocative Karelia Suite followed by Shor’s newly-commissioned Symphonic Prelude, with Tchaikovsky’s emotionally-charged Romeo and Juliet Fantasy Overture being selected to close off proceedings.
This concert is being organised together with CMDI Group.
