The Phantom of The Opera Suite
The last and first days of the year should be filled with a joyful atmosphere. Hopefully it will be possible thanks to the combination of significant works of the British and American music scene. George Gerschwin’s Rhapsody in Blue, which never loses its popularity, the playful suite from Frederick Loewe‘s musical My Fair Lady, or the powerful music from Leonard Bernstein‘s film and operetta, these are all musical gems of the 20th century. The evening will culminate with a suite from the British composer Andrew Lloyd Webber. The Phantom of the Opera, a work that saw many performances in opera houses and, in 2004, a film, was for several decades the most financially profitable show on Broadway.
Classical and jazz musician Ladislav Fančovič is probably the best local choice for rehearsing Rhapsody in Blue. The last and first concert seconds of the year will belong to the baton of the conductor Rastislav Štúr.
