The "George Enescu" Philharmonic is scheduling for Thursday November 18th and Friday, November 19th, 2021, from 19.00, in the Great Hall of the Romanian Athenaeum, a new concert with public, conducted by maestro Christian Badea, main conductor of the institution. The program consists of Double Concerto in E minor for violin, viola and orchestra, op. 88 by Max Bruch and Symphony no. 8, in G major, op. 88 by Antonin Dvorak. Soloists in Bruch's concert will be violinist Mihaela Martin and violinist Răzvan Popovici. The public will be able to participate in a proportion of 30% of the capacity of the Great Hall of the Romanian Athenaeum, according to the sanitary conditions in force. Tickets for these two events go on sale on Thursday, November 11th, 2021, from 12.00.
Max Bruch (1838 - 1920) composed almost 100 musical compositions and no less than 9 concert works dedicated to the violin. Double concerto in E minor for violin, viola and orchestra, op. 88 had its first audition in 1911. "Max Bruch, at 73 years old and self-proclaimed a traditionalist, once again found himself in front of an audience and a receptive critique regarding the unusualness of modernism rather than the elegance, nobility and durability of romanticism ", remarks the musicologist Octavia-Anahid Dinulescu.
Among the symphonies of Antonin Dvoűák (1841 - 1904), Symphony no. 8, in G minor, op. 88 is the one that carries one of the most intense Slavic imprints. The work was composed in a short time spent by the artist in a rural area, between August 26 and November 8, 1889. "The songs simply flowed from me," the composer pointed out.
