The Symphony Orchestra

Passion in Colour is the title of the fourth concert in the Trui Teatre cycle of the Orquesta Sinfónica Illes Balears, this Thursday the 9th of February at 8 pm. The Symphony will perform romantic works from the 19th and early 20th centuries: Les préludes by Franz Liszt; the Violin Concerto by Alexander Glazunov, which will feature violin soloist Sergei Dogadin, and the Symphony in D minor by César Franck. Tickets are already on sale on the Symphony’s website or at the Trui Teatre box office.

Liszt’s Les préludes, composed in 1848, is the third and most popular of his cycle of thirteen symphonic poems. It is a work inspired by “Les préludes”, an ode to the Nouvelles méditations poètiques by the romantic poet Alphonse de Lamartine. Symphonic poems were a genre that established programmatic music, i.e. written works that illustrated projects such as a poem, paintings and plays, among others.

The Symphony, together with violinist Sergei Dogadin, will also perform Alexander Glazunov’s Violin Concerto in A minor. It is one of the Russian composer’s most popular works, written in 1904. It is characterised by a technically brilliant style in which there are no pauses or numbered sections.

Sergei Dogadin is one of the most brilliant representatives of the Russian violin school, with a career as a soloist and international chamber musician. He has won some of the most prestigious violin competitions, such as the 9th Joseph Joachim International Violin Competition in Hannover (2015), the Singapore International Violin Competition (2018) and, most recently, the 16th International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow, where he was awarded first prize and the gold medal. This great success led to invitations from Valery Gergiev to perform with him and the Mariinsky Orchestra at the European summer festivals in Mikkeli and Grafenegg, as well as at the First International Zaryadye Festival in Moscow in autumn 2020.

To conclude the concert, the Orchestra will perform César Franck’s Symphony in D minor, the Belgian composer’s most famous orchestral work and only symphony. It represents a point of contact between two different musical traditions: the French cyclical form and the German romantic form.
