The English conductor Jonathan Berman and the violist Răzvan Popovici proceed with the live concert series at the “George Enescu” Philharmonic
The "George Enescu" Philharmonic proceeds with the live concerts series, without an audience, in the hall of the Romanian Athenaeum. Thursday, on the 10th of December from 7 PM, The Symphony Orchestra of The "George Enescu" Philharmonic will be conducted, for the second week of the online season, by the English conductor Jonathan Berman.
The programme, streamed on the online channels of the institution is composed of Variations on a theme by Haydn, Op. 56 by Johannes Brahms, Andante and Rondo Ungarese for viola and orchestra, Op. 35 by Carl Maria von Weber and Symphony no. 40, in G minor, KV 550 by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Soloist Răzvan Popovici will be performing Romance for viola and orchestra Op. 85, in order to pay homage to composer Max Bruch (1838-1920), 100 years after his demise. "In the 20th century, Bruch's music became appreciated precisely because of those characteristics that he was blamed for at the time: breaking patterns, free expression, the musical speech based more on inspiration and less on the rules. The most significant success that Bruch achieved was the one that eventually matters the most, even for the most rigorous artists: being catchy" says musicologist Mihai Cojocaru.
