BLJO/ Bavarian Youth Orchestra is young hearts which radiate verity!

Collective of hundred of young ambitious musicians every year goes on tour of different countries in Europe, Asia and America, performs in the most famous concert halls and is a permanent participant of big classical music festivals - it will be the first time the orchestra will come to Ukraine performing at the festival LvivMozArt. Bavarian Youth Orchestra is considered one of the most successful orchestras in Europe. The orchestra will present a unique program with German symphony masterpieces, music by Johannes Brahms and Richard Strauss.

 

The history of creating “Tragic Overture” by Brahms is connected with plans of Vienna Burgtheater to put on the court opera Goethe’s “Faust”. Inspite of the fact that later composer refused the idea to connect the overture with a literary original, “Tragic Overture” eventually obtained its musical life. Literary masterpieces in a new way come to life in language of sounds and become much closer to the audience.

Richard Strauss is rightfully named “the last romantic”. Composer wrote a cycle “4 last songs” the year before his death. They reproduce the composer’s calmness and his acceptance of irreversible before every person - our own sunset. It’s surprising that “4 last songs” by Strauss breathe the perfection, meditation and world beaty’s enjoyment. In the last song the words are: “Through sorrow and joy we have gone hand in hand; we are both at rest from our wanderings now above the quiet land...”. The compositions by Richard Strauss almost are not performed in Ukraine because of their virtuosity and complexity.

Nietzsche’s philosophical essay “Thus Spoke Zarathustra” was put in the basis of symphony poem. A wild drama of the poem is a bright example of late German Romanticism. Since its premiere (1896) and until now “Thus Spoke Zarathustra” is still one of the most popular classical music compositions. It’s the first interpretation of philosophical text in the history of music, and the work itself consists of 9 parts, named like in the original text.
