Energetically, after the summer holidays, the Cyprus Symphony Orchestra returns to the stage, which during the months of September and October has prepared a rich concert program which includes, among others, works by Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, Mozart and Rossini.
According to the website of the Symphony Orchestra Foundation "in the opening concert of the new artistic season, the Cyprus Symphony Orchestra collaborates with the Ukrainian pianist, Igor Tchetuev, who plays with the greatest symphony orchestras and conductors of the international scene."
According to music critics, Igor Tchetuev has "a very important performing personality", and his work "brings out the vital energy of each piece".
Under the direction of the orchestra's new Artistic Director and Conductor Günter Neuhold, the renowned pianist will perform the Concerto no. 3 by Prokofiev distinguished by expressive sharpness, euphoria and rhythmic energy, familiar stylistic features of the composer.
The Agreement no. 7 by Beethoven is known for its intoxicating dance mood, which led its later composer Richard Wagner to praise it as "the deification of dance".
Performances in Larnaca, Limassol and Nicosia on September 14,15, 16 and XNUMX, respectively.
Next, the Cyprus Symphony Orchestra invites us to a magical evening of music under the starry sky, in the heart of the capital and the Prefect's House in Paphos.
