Grand Finale

The Final Concert of the season will be a genuine enchantment.

The Lebanese Philharmonic Orchestra will shine, in a popular programme by great composers.

Nina Kotova, is one of the greatest cellists today. She is featured in the recent Deutsche Grammophon release “Masters of the Bow”, which pays tribute to the greatest cellists of the last 50 years. The Saint-Saens cello concerto No.1 is her favorite.

‘Technically phenomenal, she [Nina Kotova] combined strong muscularity with glorious lyricism in her compelling interpretation.”

Liszt’s Hungarian rhapsody No.2 is his most famous rhapsody. It was inspired by the Bohemian tunes cherished by Liszt. This is the orchestral version of it.

An orchestral adventure is a suite arranged only recently (in 1991) by Henk De Vlieger, combining the most memorable tunes of the four operas in Wagner’s Ring. It is the music without the voices.

The work has been played by only a few orchestras and directed by no more than 25 conductors.

C. Saint-Saëns – Cello Concerto No.1 in A minor

F. Liszt – Hungarian Rhapsody No.2

R. Wagner – An orchestral Adventure, Wagner’s RING arr. Henk de Vlieger
