Four soloists, four virtuosic masterpieces, four worlds.

The title “Gliss Concerto” fully “decrypts” contents of the piece by the Polish composer Adam Wesołowski since a trombone (playing solo part here) is the instrument which can easily “glides” from one note to another and has a wide palette of music gestures. The piece is filled with joyful music humour and virtuosic playfulness.

Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto, on the contrary, takes us to a totally different world. The music in the Concerto possesses almost cosmic depth of the Mozart’s late period. It is his last piece composed in this genre and completed just a few months before the composer’s death. This Concerto is unique also due to the fact that it was written not for the ordinary clarinet but for the advanced instrument with an extended low register complementing the solo part with additional timbre depth literally. Unfortunately, the Mozart original manuscript was lost and nowadays the piece is most frequently performed with the standard clarinet.

Composers of the both Violin Concertos – Vieuxtemps and Paganini – were virtuosic violinists and knew each other personally. However, while Paganini-composer wrote music primarily for Paganini-violinists who strived to fully unfold his virtuoso genius, in Vieuxtemps’ Concerto one can feel the notes of purely composer’s visions and ideas where a performer obediently gives the dominant role to a composer, though being the same person. Nevertheless, both Concertos are the vivid masterpieces of the world violin classics, creations of the genius of their generation.

The concert is organized in partnership with Solomiya Krushelnytska Lviv Specialized Secondary Music Boarding School.
