The Orquesta Sinfónica Illes Balears will feature conductor Jonathan Cohen and violinist Liza Ferschtman in the seventh concert of the Trui Teatre cycle, to be held this Thursday the 24th of March at 8 pm. The musicians will perform a programme ranging from baroque to classicism with touches of romanticism with a programme consisting of Thamos, King of Egypt (selection) by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart; the Violin Concerto in D major “Grosso Mogul” RV 208 by Antonio Vivaldi; the Violin Concerto No. 4 in G major by Joseph Haydn and the Symphony No. 5 in B flat major by Franz Schubert. The concert will be repeated the following day in the Auditorio de Manacor, at 7:30 pm, and tickets for both concerts are already available and can be purchased through the Symphony’s website.
The concert will begin with Thamos, King of Egypt by Mozart, a great lover of theatre who composed this expressive piece for the play by F. Von Gebler.
The Symphony will feature violinist Liza Ferschtman performing Vivaldi’s Violin Concerto in D major “Grosso Mogul” RV 208 and Haydn’s Violin Concerto No. 4 in G major. The pieces will demand the energy and full capabilities of the soloist.
Known for her strong personality and musical versatility, combining powerful dynamism and intense lyricism, Liza Ferschtman has been praised by the international music press for the great intensity, purity and refined beauty of her interpretations. Since winning the Dutch Music Award, the most distinguished prize for Dutch musicians, in 2006, Liza has appeared as a soloist with many of the world’s top orchestras, including the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, the London Philharmonic, the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, the Budapest Festival Orchestra, the Warsaw Philharmonic and the Brussels Philharmonic.
The programme, which will begin with Mozart, will also end in a “Mozartian” style with Schubert’s Symphony No. 5 in B flat major, one of the Viennese composer’s early masterpieces. It is a work characterised by simplicity of outline, clarity, optimistic and melodic overtones and a style that has been seen as a tribute to the German composer.
