At 5.30 Atrium
Kuopio Symphony Orchestra

Max Bruch: Violin Concerto No 1 in G minor Op. 26
Noam Sheriff: “Prayers” for String Orchestra
Robert Schumann: Symphony No 3 in E-flat major Op. 97 “Rhenish”
Lately, ‘play-conduct’ concerts have been at the heart of the German violinist and conductor Kolja Blacher’s activities. Also in Kuopio, he will lead the orchestra while he plays. The music of the Israeli composer Noam Sheriff is an original combination of musical elements from the ancient Mediterranean region and western countries. The concert will begin with his piece Prayers for strings from 1983. Max Bruch’s 1st violin concerto with its sweet melancholic tensions has been dubbed as the world’s most popular violin concerto. Its creation was a tedious process, and according to Bruch, the piece was rewritten at least half a dozen times. Robert Schumann’s 3rd symphony is like a praise to the river Rhine that connects the countries of Europe. It was inspired by the happy and peaceful journey of the composer and his wife Clara along the river Rhine.
