By the end of January, the RTS Symphony Orchestra is preparing a great concert, intended for music lovers of wind instruments, called “Serenade For Wind Instruments”. The guest from Italy, hornist Giovanni Pompeo, this time in the role of conductor, has chosen for this evening concert interesting program – Serenade for Wind Instruments Es-major op. 7 by Richard Strauss, Suite Francaise for wind instruments, percussion and harpsichord by Francis Pulank and Serenade For Wind Instruments, cello and double contrabass d-moll op. 44 Antonin Dvorak. The concert will be held in the Great Hall of the Kolarac Endowment, on January 25, at 8 pm.
Serenade For Wind Instruments Es-major op. 7 Richard Strauss is a youthful work of this author. He wrote it when he was 17 and when he was already recognized in German music circles as an excellent performer on the horn, before which he had a promising solo career. Although he also showed a great sense of conducting, in composing he completely found himself, and his early work – Serenade For Wind Instruments Es-major op. He described 7 as “nothing more than a composition for respect, written by one student”. Regardless of his strict words, this work still lives on the concert floors today.
Francaise Suite for wind instruments, percussion and harpsichord by Francis Poulenc is written in the form of an orchestra suite. It was performed as music for the theater play by Eduard Burde Queen Margo. For the original musical material, Pulenc used a collection of sixteen-century French plays from the Book of Games by composer Claude Gervaise.
For Serenade for wind instruments, cello and contrabass d-major op. 44 Antonin Dvorak was inspired by the atmosphere of the games that were played in the Rococo castles. Although it does not quote folk songs, the attitude is recognizable by the so-called sound of the “Slovenian style”, which can be recognized in full swing in his Slovenian games.
