LETICIA MORENO violin
ROBERT KRUŽÍK conductor
Our opening concert of the new season doubles up as the first night of the 21st season of the Harmonia Moraviae festival. Under the baton of Robert Kružík, the Orchestra will start by guiding listeners of all ages through its different instrument groups in Britten’s well-known variations and fugueson themes by Henry Purcell.
Next we hear two shorter pieces for solo violin and orchestra by Maurice Ravel and Pablo de Sarasate, and what better choice of performer for works containing Andalusian, French and Gypsy elements than the vivacious Spanish violinist Leticia Moreno, whose natural highly energetic style has won her acclaim throughout Europe.
The concert ends with another piece by Maurice Ravel, La Valse, in which Ravel presents his idealised version of an imperial court waltz. Commissioned by the ballet impresario Sergey Diaghilev, it is Ravel’s musical expression of the joy of movement and of life as a whole.
