The last concert of the Cycle E will bring works by world and European composers. First up is Incantations, a concerto for percussion and orchestra by the eminent Finnish composer Einojuhani Rautavaara (†2016). He composed Incantations in 2008 and the work soon gained a place in the repertoire of many percussionists.

The Italian composer Gaetano Donizetti composed mainly operas. Quel guardo, il cavaliere … So anch’io la virtù magica is a short aria by Norina from the opera Don Pasquale which is considered as one of the most famous.

The three-minute long song Granada was composed by Mexican composer Agustín Lara in 1932 in honour of the Spanish city of the same name. It is still very popular today. Cavaradossi’s aria from the opera Tosca by the Italian composer Giacomo Puccini is also three minutes long.

Nicolò Paganini was the most famous violin virtuoso of his time who lived between the years 1782 and 1840. As a true master he innovated and modernised violin technique. He probably composed his first violin concerto between 1817 and 1818 and premiered it in Naples. The solo part will be taken by the only 16-year-old Korean violinist Boha Moon who is currently studying under Josef Špaček.

Do not miss

C4 I am giving myself in…

Listen to the stories hidden between the notes and let yourself be carried away by the music of Vivaldi, Rogers or Saint-Saëns. Music is the most sensitive narrator.
