Serenade [cancelled]
with Fazil Say

Pianist and composer Fazil Say returns with his own music: his ode to the Turkish folk hero Atatürk is programmed with Arensky’s ode to his teacher Tchaikovsky. The Serenade for Strings is Tchaikovsky’s ode to Mozart.

The Turkish pianist and composer Fazil Say makes a return appearance with Amsterdam Sinfonietta with The Moving Mansion. This ode to Atatürk recalls a celebrated event from the life of the Turkish folk hero and fervent nature lover: he had a mansion relocated in order to save a sycamore tree. The Arensky variations, the arrangement of the slow movement of his second String Quartet, are a musical tribute by the composer to his deceased friend Tchaikovsky. In the summer of 1880 Tchaikovsky composed his much loved, superb Serenade for strings as a homage to Mozart, who had written numerous serenades himself. Shostakovich’s first piano concerto was initially intended as a concerto for trumpet and orchestra. Only a small but unforgettable starring role for solo trumpet remains in this exuberant, almost clownish Concerto.
