Violinist Alina Ibragimova will perform at the Grand Guild on Saturday with Sinfonietta Riga / Day


With Sinfonietta Riga In the jointly created concert program, the guest artist will demonstrate her bright and virtuoso violin playing, as well as appear in front of the orchestra as the concert performance director. In addition to Mozart’s “supercar”, we will hear another serenade of the cheerful Viennese classic in the concert – Post horn. In Mozart’s company is also Ludwig van Beethoven, who is represented in this program by the composer’s chrestomathy Violin Concerto.

In addition to the concerts planned for this season at the Elbe Philharmonic in Hamburg, the Vienna Concert Hall in Austria and the Vigmore Hall in London, Alina Ibragimova will also visit Riga. Previously, the artist visited Latvia in 2007, when she was invited to collaborate by a chamber orchestra conducted by Gidon Kremer. Kremerata Baltica.

The highlights of this season in Alina Ibragimova’s creative calendar mark a meeting with the Royal Concertgebouw orchestras and the London Symphony, as well as the London Philharmonic.

Although Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s (1756-1791) extensive orchestral works include at least sixty-eight large-format orchestral works comparable to the symphony’s scope, in the Kehel’s catalog the designation of this genre is given to forty-one opuses. Between 1774 and 1778, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart focused on a serenade related to the symphony genre. It should be noted that the symphony has not yet strengthened its position as a leading genre at this time and is perceived as a musical performance of secondary importance, while the serenade could be addressed to a specific purpose and was considered the central event of the evening. Sinfonietta Riga In the concert you will be able to hear Mozart’s 9th Serenade in Remorazor, who was given the sound Post horn subtitle. It dates from 3 August 1779 and is believed to be dedicated to the graduation ceremony of the University of Salzburg that year.

Although it is clear that Mozart’s joyful and carefree spirit with self-sufficient creativity did not fascinate him, and the movement of his soundtrack’s feathers was most often motivated by external impulses, namely the orders of wealthy people. Small night music in the case of a connection with external forces, or no solemn event has been found. Musicologist Alfred Einstein has even suggested that this serenade was created by Mozart driven by inner necessity. The serenade dates back to 1787, when the composer was working on the opera Don Juan scores. But six months before the graceful and shaped elegance deeply sophisticated Small night music top she Musical jokes. To a large extent, one can agree with Einstein’s assumption that in this world of theatricalism, gallant flirtatiousness and laughter, Mozart’s creative spirit may have sought for itself a harmonizing and aesthetically complete shadow of the sound garden. But whatever the motives for the creation of this serenade, its complete and easy-to-understand form and light melody can surpass anyone,

Among the concerts of Ludwig van Beethoven’s (1770-1827) concert genre, piano concerts occupy the main place. The genius composer and virtuoso pianist has dedicated five works of this form to this instrument. However, the other two concerts that have survived to this day occupy an important place in Beethoven’s heritage – the triple concert for piano, cello and violin, as well as the Concerto for Violin and Orchestra. It was commissioned for the composer by the outstanding Austrian violinist Francis Klements, whose reading of the violin concert was premiered on December 23, 1806. Theater an der Wien. Legend has it that the solo parts of the violin concert have fallen into the hands of Clement almost at the last minute, which has not been good for the premiere of the work. The score of the violin concert got on the shelf for several decades and only after the death of the genius composer, did he experience his “second birth”. This event is associated with the name of the Hungarian violinist Joseph Joachim, who together with the London Symphony Society Orchestra and Felix Mendelssohn at the conductor’s desk gave the Violin Concerto to the audience again in 1844. And this time, already to stay.
