Ι BELIEVE IN GOD, MOZART AND BEETHOVEN
(R. WAGNER)

On the 25 & 26 of February 2016 the Cyprus Symphonic Orchestra organised a classical music concert with the title: "I believe in God, Mozart and Beethoven". Daria Kravtcova, the winner of the 1st Prize of the 20th International Piano Competion Evangelia Tjiarri took part in the event as a soloist.

 

 

A few words about the concert:

 

Byzantine Tribute attests Solon Michaelides’s deep love and knowledge of byzantine music. First prize winner of the 20th Evangelia Tjiarri International Piano Competition, the talented 12-year-old Daria Kravtcova, will interpret Beethoven’s piano concerto no. 1 (1795) which features a robust first movement, a meditative slow movement and a zesty, witty rondo.

Mozart’s 39th Symphony (1788), one of his last three symphonies, ranks among his most consummate works. Its first movement sizzles with energy, its serene slow movement features a striking dramatic outburst in the minor, the Trio is unusually based on an actual Austrian landler, whilst in the finale, Mozart is at his most spirited.
