2020 is a special year for the music world, because Beethoven turns a quarter of a millennium – 250 years old!

On the occasion of the great Beethoven’s anniversary, the repertoire of each theater and concert hall of the world continues to be studded with the composer’s works!

But due to the quarantine-caused break for the cultural industry, few have managed to realize their grandiose plans: major festivals and local projects were cancelled or switched to digital formats.

But the music by the Viennese classical composer keeps sounding in the most silent year. And it is Ludwig van Beethoven’s Overture №3 “Leonora” that will be the grand opening of the concert.

The young Mozart wrote his Violin Concertos in his native Salzburg while working as the concertmaster of the bishop’s orchestra. Mozart’s talent flourished both in composition and in performance. After all, Mozart’s father, Leopold, was closely supervising the performing “craft” of his children, Wolfie and Nannerl, and became their first teacher. In fact, Leopold Mozart wrote one of the first textbooks for violinists in history – “The Art of Playing the Violin”, so his genius son continued the family musical traditions in his own violin repertoire.

The multifaceted work of the contemporary composer Oleksandr Kozarenko covers various genres, but the composer’s appeal to folk sources is outstanding. The ability to work with the archaic, to create concert masterpieces from folk songs testifies to Kozarenko’s delicate skill in national themes. “Five wedding songs from Pokuttia” was created on the basis of music written by the composer in the early 90’s for the play “Pokuttia Wedding”.

Parts of the work unfold in accordance with the traditional wedding ceremony: the first special songs accompanying the bread baking; the second – weaving a wreath; third – redemption of the wreath; fourth – parental blessing; the latter – gathering of the bride, a walk to church and the sacrament of marriage.
