IRONY AND JOY – Beethoven Cycle Continued

Cyprus Symphony Orchestra

Andri Hadjiandreou (piano), Jens Georg Bachmann (conductor)

Friday 28 February 8.30pm

Markideion Municipal Theatre Paphos

Tickets: €12, €7 (18-26 yrs, pensioners), €5 (under 18)

Box Office: Online at www.cyso.org.cy and at the Box Office 2 hours before the concert

Information: www.paphosmusiclovers.com

Programme:

G. Rossini: La scala di seta: Overture

R. Strauss: Burlesque for piano and orchestra in D minor

L. v. Beethoven: Symphony no. 8 in F major, op. 93

The tribute of the Cyprus Symphony Orchestra to the unparalleled genius of Beethoven continues with his Symphony no. 8, a lighthearted masterpiece containing passages that could even be perceived as musical jokes. This comical angle – irony and joy! – is what connects Beethoven’s symphony with the other two works of this programme: While Rossini’s La scala di seta - an operatic farsa comica - is genuinely comical, Richard Strauss’ Burlesque flirts with the idea of a witty parody of the “serious” concerto genre.

Directions: The theatre is next to the Karavella bus station in the upper town, just off the Polis Road behind the petrol station. MARKIDEION MUNICIPAL THEATRE OF PAPHOS, 27 Andrea Geroudi Street, Paphos. Tel: 26222286.

The principal cellist of the same orchestra, Jakub Otcenasek, joined them as a founder member for a year, then Robert, who luckily lives and works in Cyprus, replaced him. In the end of January, 2019 they performed their first concert, despite the fact that Marios was still in the army. The concert was held in Kasteliotissa Medieval Hall Nicosia, where they played Mozart and Mendelssohn. After writing their first arrangement - Cypriot Suite – the quartet performed it in Paphos in Technopolis20 in June 2019 and also performed two concerts, one in the Municipal Theatre Nicosia and the other in Pattichion Municipal Theatre in Limassol, as part of the Kypria International Festival in September 2019.

Following the success of Gira d'Italia, we bring our spring concert, Fruhlingserwachen, Awakening of Spring: an evening of German songs and arias sung by the wonderful soprano Anoki Von Arx, and Stelios Georgiou accompanied by the amazing Plotinos Micromatis on the piano. Their goal is to share with the audience these beautiful songs of Germany; songs that are, romantic, fun yet dramatic and unforgettable things which are vital ingredients in life. Anoki and Stelios, so talented, have a vast vocal range they can be judged individually and in duets the two are gifted in their vocal dexterity, with velvet, sensual and gentle yet, deep voices. I have not found anyone who was not 'blown away', by the magic felt listening their multi-faceted voices, with duets and solos they cover a range of notes and emotions, from a sweet soaring falsetto to an attitude-laden, long, low, profound sound. Plotinos is equally at home, performing solo recitals, chamber music with singers and instrumentalists and as soloist. His playing dovetails with Anoki and Stelios absolutely perfectly.
