The final concert of the philharmonic subscription № 80 “MSSO” will present a program composed from the compositions of the two greatest composers of late romanticism - Johannes Brahms and Antonin Dvořák.
The scale of the creative personality of Johannes Brahms is often compared with two other great figures of German music - Bach and Beethoven: the art of each of them marks the culmination of an era in the history of music. A special place in the composer's creative heritage is held by the Violin Concerto in D-dur. The work dedicated by Brahms to his close friend, violinist Joseph Joachim, amazes with the difficulty of the solo part, designed for the outstanding technical abilities of the soloist. The concerto is imbued with a typically Brahms' sense of light solemnity, which is only occasionally disturbed by dramatic images invaded the movement of music. The solo part in the concert will be performed by Nikita Borisoglebsky - a wonderful virtuoso, awarded the title "Honored Artist of Russia", a laureate of International competitions, among which are the 13th Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow (2007, II prize and five special prizes), Queen Elizabeth Competition in Brussels (2009, V prize). In 2010, the musician won the First prize at the F. Kreisler competitions in Vienna and the J. Sibelius competition in Helsinki, and in 2013 he won the Monte Carlo Violin Masters Grand Prix in Monaco.
In the second part, the Ninth Symphony “From the New World” by the Czech composer Antonin Dvořák, created under the influence of the landscapes of the Great American Plain and its inhabitants, will be performed. Dvořák once noticed that wherever he works - in America or England - he always wrote true Czech music. It is no coincidence that in his last symphony, the bizarre rhythms of Native American and Negro folklore were closely intertwined with the songs of his native Czech Republic. The concert will be conducted by Mikhail Tatarnikov, Music Director and Chief Conductor of the Mikhailovsky Theater in St. Petersburg.
