Virtuoso Cello Pieces by A. Kraft a L. van Beethoven
Ilze Grudule- cello, Alena Honigova - fortepiano
The exceptionality of the Lobkowicz Band arose mainly from its artistic cast. As the Director of Vienna Theatres, Frantisek Maxmilian Lobkowicz had excellent connections and managed to engage real virtuosos of European calibre. One of them was Antonin Kraft, a cellist who had already achieved a great career as a soloist of the famous Esterhazy Band where he played under the baton of Joseph Haydn. Prince Esterhazy regarded Kraft very high and allowed him to perform concerts across Europe.
On Saturday August 30 at 5 pm
Eroica Variations – Closing Concert
Pieces for fortepiano by Ludwig van Beethoven, Muzio Clementi and Jan Josef Rosler.
Alena Honigova – period piano
A concert commemorating the anniversary of the first, private performance of Eroica Symphony at Jezeri castle in 1804. It observes the birth of the famous theme and the atmosphere of its formation. It should not only be a memory of the glorious moment of our history but also a herald of the very performance of the whole symphony in near future in the newly refurbished theatre where it was once heard.
