Grief and Resurrection

Markideion Municipal Theatre

Time: 8.30 p.m.

 

Just one week, this year, between the western and eastern Easters, and the CySO has ensured that its relevant concert caters for both. A concert beginning with funereal and mourning music, with the second of the three works of the programme featuring the warm, introspective and solemn tone of the viola, lending, some would venture to say, a melancholy note to the first part of the evening given the imminent commemoration of the Divine Passion. Easter however is also a time for rejoicing, for the Resurrection of the Christ inevitably follows His Passion, and it’s in this spirit that the orchestra’s Artistic Director and tonight’s conductor has chosen Haydn’s Symphony no. 97, the last in a long line of brilliant and festive "trumpet and drum" symphonies in C major by the Austrian composer.

 

W. A. Mozart: Masonic Funeral Music (Maurerische Trauermusik), K. 477

P. Hindemith: Music for Mourning (Trauermusik) for string orchestra with solo viola

J. Haydn: Symphony no. 97 in C major, Hob. I:97  

 

Soloist: Krzysztof Wrobel (viola)

Conductor: Jens Georg Bachmann
