More insights over the program:
Claude Debussy – “Clair de lune” (moonlight) composed in 1890 is one of the most famous if not the most famous work of this French composer. 'Moonlight' is one of four movement of piano Suite Bergamo. Composer got inspired by the collection of poems entitled Fetes Galantes by Paule Verlaine, and Moonlight is part of it. Despite de objection of composer 15 years later this work was published. Ironically, Debussy thought that youth composition was much below the level of his mature works and who knew it would become that well known.
Jules Massanet – “Meditation” is a symphonic intermezzo from the opera Thais. Originally composition is written for Violin solo and orchestra.
Gustav Mahler – “Adagietto” from the 5th Symphony is most frequently played composition of this French composer. It is said that this song is Mahler’s declaration of love to his wife. Adagietto received extended popularity beyond the classical genre. As well it became a soundtrack of the movie Death in Venice.
Saint-Saense – Fantasie for solo harp Op95.
Saint-Saense – Fantasie for Violin and Harp, op 124 is the 2-d of his three major pieces this French composer wrote for harp, including a previous Fantasie Op95 for solo harp and Concert for harp and orchestra. Fantasie Op125 is a virtuoso piece for both players. As the name suggests the work is a single movement of relaxed and spontaneous mood changing. The music is well crafted, clear, balanced and charming.
Valeriy Kikta – Metamorphoses and Fantasia are two movements of the Sonate for Violin and Harp by Russian composer. This work is rather ravishing with combination of intense lyricism and energy. “Metamorphoses” is the 1-st movement and a mystical depiction of Autumnal landscapes. The 2-d movement “Fantasia” based on a very romantic and very Russian song “Krasniy saraphan” (a red summer dress).
