The Slovenian Philharmonic String Chamber Orchestra

Programme:

C. P. E. Bach: Symphony No 6 in E major
C. P. E. Bach: Concerto for Flute, Strings and Continuo in D minor, H.484/1
D. Shostakovich, arr. D. Sitkovecki: String quartet No 3 in F major, Op. 73

The Slovene Philharmonic String Chamber Orchestra is joined once again by the renowned Russian violinist Dmitry Sitkovetsky, who is also active as a conductor, arranger and festival director. Also appearing as a soloist is the London-based Slovene flautist Boris Bizjak, who has performed around the world as a soloist and chamber musician. Three years ago he captivated the Ljubljana Festival audience in a recital with British pianist Simon Lane. The programme consists of the sixth of the ten “Hamburg symphonies” by Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach, a composer who bridges the Baroque and Classical periods, and his Concerto for flute, strings and continuo (originally scored for harpsichord, strings and continuo). The evening ends with Sitkovetsky’s arrangement of Shostakovich’s String Quartet No 3, written after the end of the Second World War.
