SOTA | The Vienna Concert 7:30PM

Grieg Holberg Suite

Bach Concerto in F-major for Oboe

Beethoven Concerto in C-major for Piano

The Vienna concert pays tribute to the composers who gained the worlds attention after being recognised in the well know music capital. Beethoven was in his prime when he entered the impressive list of composers who lived in Vienna such as Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Franz Schubert and Johannes Brahms.

The program opens with Norwegian composer Grieg’s fantastical work, the Holberg Suite. Composed to mark the 200th anniversary of Norwegian writer Ludvig Holberg’s birth. Since Holberg was a contemporary of Bach and Handel, Grieg chose to compose his tribute in the form of a French Baroque period suite. He cast six movements in the musical forms of the 18th century, and filled them with the spirit of his own time and style. Grieg’s goal was to create a “Nordic style” based on the tonal language of Norwegian peasant folk songs, dances and folklore.

Pianist Severin von Eckardstein has wowed the world with his performances of the Russian Composers. However, this time he promises to deliver an astounding performance of a work by his fellow German, Ludvig van Beethoven. The Beethoven Piano Concerto No.1 is in many ways the highlight of the series. Don’t let the soft notes in the beginning fool you -This is Beethoven in his true element - he is grand, exuberant, at times overwhelming and at times gentle and whispering in your ear. Through this compositional journey this evening will leave you mesmerised.

Edvard Grieg Holberg Suite

JS Bach Concerto in F-major for Oboe

Piotr Tchaikovsky String Serenade (Excerpts)

JS Bach Concerto in A-major for Piano

The Berlin Concert is a tribute to German Composer Johann Sebastian Bach, who is hailed by many as the greatest composer of all times. For the first concerto by Bach our instrument is not the piano, the violin nor even the flute which are all well-established instruments in the public's heart. The oboe however, this mellow instrument which evokes pastoral atmospheres, is an instrument for which Johann Sebastian Bach composed some of the most beautiful melodic lines. The star of the show is João Miguel Silva, who is among the world’s upcoming oboists. His gentle demeanor takes nothing away from the dynamism of this poetic instrument. 

Also on the program is Tchaikovsky’s String Serenade adds the perfect balance to the program. Juxtaposing the counterpoint of Bach with Slavic themes. 

Pianist Sonia Achkar will give the finale of the evening with Bach’s A-major Piano Concerto. Johann Sebastian Bach was a master of counterpoint not only in the literal sense, but in a stylistic one as well. He regularly drew on traits and techniques from composers outside the Northern European tradition, synthesizing impulses he found in French and Italian composers. Sonia Achkar brings "The highest level of piano artistry - playful elegance and brilliance” to a much anticipated performance.
