Spring concerts bring classical music

A new season begins for the Cyprus Symphony Orchestra with spring concerts on the horizon in almost every major city in Cyprus. To kick off its spring agenda, the orchestra participates in the Larnaka Festival of Classical Music, presenting the Premiere 5 concert series this April in front of Nicosia, Paphos and of course, Larnaca audiences.

The Premiere 5 concerts feature Antonio Vivaldi’s iconic Four Seasons (Le Quattro Stagioni), a work that transcends time and takes listeners on a sensory exploration of nature’s wonders. The violinist and member of the orchestra’s first violins, Antonis Bargilly will interpret the solo part in these ravishingly beautiful, passionate and virtuosic concerti for violin and orchestra. Mozart’s Symphony no. 40 in G minor is a perfect match to Vivaldi’s work in terms of emotional intensity, aptly described by musicologist Charles Rosen as “a work of passion, violence, and grief.” Conducting the musicians on all three evenings will be Douglas Boyd.

First the musicians will perform in Nicosia, at Strovolos Municipal Theatre on April 10. On the following evening, Paphos audiences will get to enjoy the music at Markideio Municipal Theatre before the orchestra travels to Larnaca for the Larnaka Festival of Classical Music on April 12.
