Classical Reflections
Roberto González-Monjas, conductor, Yeol Eum Son, piano

S. Prokofjev, Symphony No.1, Classical
W. A. Mozart,  Piano Concerto No. 24
W. A. Mozart, Piano Concerto No. 8
R. Dubugnon, Chamber Symphony No. 2 (Slovenian premiere)

Although clearly imbued with the spirit of our time in terms of style and expression, the music of Swiss composer Richard Dubugnon (1968) is often coloured with a characteristic lightness, an almost rococo picturesqueness. This trait is evident in the work on tonight’s programme, Chamber Symphony No. 2, which will be heard for the first time by a Slovenian audience.

The same elegance and sophistication, through the composer’s distinctive and unique sense of humour, found a place in Sergei Prokofiev’s First Symphony. More than a century after its creation, this symphony – which, due to its more than obvious affinity to Haydn and Mozart’s music, is called the Classical – is still one of the most frequently performed works by the great Russian master of Neoclassicism.

These two symphonies – Dubugnon’s work with its classicistic elegance, and Prokofiev’s Neoclassical masterpiece – will be linked in a unified musical conception with two piano concertos by perhaps the greatest master of sophistication and expressive, attractive melodies, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. In both of the concertos, the solo part will be interpreted by South Korean pianist Yeol Eum Son (1986), who attracted international attention with his performance with the New York Philharmonic led by Lorin Maazel in 2004, and who won a silver medal in the Tchaikovsky Competition in 2011. The entire concert will be led by Spanish violinist and conductor Roberto González-Monjas (1988), who studied in Salzburg with Igor Ozim, and who also works as the concertmaster of the Musikkollegium Winterthur Orchestra and the Orchestra dell’Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia in Rome.
