 “The servant of 2 master” by Carlo Coldoni

Markideion Municipal Theatre

Time: 8.30 p.m.

 

Dell’ Arte ProjeKt

 

Written in 1746, “The Servant of Two Masters” by Carlo Osvaldo Goldoni (1707 – 1793) is one of his best-known works. It has been translated and adapted internationally numerous times and is a fine example of the 18th century Italian Comedy. As one of the most important representatives of “humanist theatre”, Goldoni explores through his work the human relationships and moral values related to logic and the “civilized human”.  He condemns arrogance, intolerance, the abuse of power and the moral decay of a society which is based on hypocrisy and corruption.

Goldoni often combines the strengths and the energetic stock characters of Commedia dell’ arte with his own wit and sincerity thus creating a unique comic style. “The Servant of Two Masters” is a caustic satire about love, passion, and the quest for happiness, but also about everyday survival.

“Sweeping Romanticism”

Markideion Municipal Theatre

Time: 8.30 p.m.

 

Mendelssohn’s “Hebrides” overture was inspired by an 1829 excursion to the famous Fingal’s Cave an awe-inspiring sea-cave on the Scottish island of Staffa. The composer was wrestling with the piece for three years before he was satisfied with it. Looking back on the creation of his Second violin concerto, Prokofiev wrote: “The number of places in which I wrote the concerto shows the kind of nomadic concert tour life I led then. The main theme of the first movement was written in Paris, the first theme of the second movement at Voronezh, the orchestration was finished in Baku and the premiere given in Madrid.” And as a tribute to where the concerto was premiered, Prokofiev added a special touch to the third movement…At the age of 15, Mendelssohn wrote his First Symphony, which was first heard at a private party in celebration of his sister Fanny’s 19th birthday in 1824. Its first public performance was given three years later, with the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra under its then-Kapellmeister Johann Philipp Christian Schulz.

Sunday October 7

Piano Duo with Anita Tomasevich and Eke Simons

Technopolis 20 Cultural Center

Time: 8.30 p.m.

 

The international duo Anita Tomasevich and Eke Simons will present a programme with true pearls of piano duo repertoire at Technopolis 20, on Sunday, 7th of October 2018, at 8:30pm.

With the well-known melodies yet not as often played in the concert podiums, the duo aspires to present this classical chamber form to the wider audience while keeping the high musical standard and artistic integrity.

The programme will include Piano sonata in D, K. 381 by W.A. Mozart, Hungarian Dances (selection) by J. Brahms and Peer Gynt Suite by E. Grieg.

W.A. Mozart - Pianosonate in D, K 381
One of Mozart’s early sonatas for piano four hands, composed for a piano duo with his sister Nannerl, also an excellent pianist. This sonata is often described as a typical Italian Symphony reduction with the clear lines of soloist and tutti ensemble. In its character, it reminds of Mozart's operas buffa as it paints vividly the comic character of the genre.

J. Brahms - Hungarian Dances (selection)
Based on Hungarian national melodies and originally written for the piano four hands, they were an instant hit as soon as they were published. Thanks to their great popularity, Brahms rewrote the first three Dances for piano solo and orchestrated several of them, while others were orchestrated by some of his friends and colleagues, including A. Dvorak. Still today, they are always a welcomed part of any four hands piano recital and among audience's favourite pieces in that genre.

E. Grieg - Peer Gynt Suite
Based on the Henrik Ibsen's drama of the same title, it is a musical story about a rise and fall of a Norwegian anti- hero, Peer Gynt. Originally written for orchestra it contains some of the most beautifully written melodies in Grieg's opus. Later on, Grieg will, himself, choose the most beautiful ones and rewrite them for piano solo and piano four hands duo.
