Dante Symphony, S. 109

This year Marián Varga is celebrating an important jubilee. His piece Musica concertante was originally released on a legendary CD Divergences, the parting album of the Collegium musicum band. It will offer us a different, a bit non-traditional view on the iconic personality of the Slovak pop music. Another composer, celebrating his ninetieth birthday, Ladislav Burlas has created a number of orchestral pieces. He wrote his Music for Violin and Orchestra in 1974 and dedicated it to the violinist Peter Michalica. At the BMF concert it will be delivered by the outstanding Slovak violin virtuoso Milan Paľa, who is permanently devoting his strengths to the performance of the Slovak music.
The evening will be closed by the grand Dante Symphony written by Franz Liszt only after he had finished his symphonic poems and the first version of the Faust Symphony. Although the work in three movements is labeled as a symphony, it consists of three virtually independent symphonic poems lacking the typical sonata form development.
