The fruitful stylistic diversity that characterizes the Romantic era in music, manifests in this concert: three Romantic treasures by two immortal masters! Opening the concert, Robert Schumann, a leading exponent of Romantic music, creator of sublime works whose seeming imperfections are nothing else but imaginative poetic manifestations of the Romantic ideal. Bringing the curtain down, is the Czech composer Jan Voříšek, a proponent of an early Romantic style grounded on a forward-looking daring harmonic language cushioned by a touch of Classical finesse. Performed of course by your very own Cyprus Symphony Orchestra with its principal cellist, Jakub Otčenášek, as soloist in the Schumann cello concerto, under the baton of Charles Olivieri-Munroe, Artistic Director of the Krakow Philharmonic Orchestra.
