Opening of Concert season “Convivium Musicum 16/17”


Concert season “Convivium Musicum 16/17” was opened ceremoniously on September 14, 2016, with a concert at the Hall of First Kragujevac Gymnasium. It was expected that after three great International chamber music festivals, organized by the Citizens Association “CONVIVIUM MUSICUM”, the creative organizational team of Festival, assimilates its artistic idea into a project that grew out to be the Concert season.

Flutist Carmineluigi Amabile (Italy) and pianist Jovana Radovanovic (Serbia) performed the works of Mozart, Gaubert, Reineke and Demersseman and with their interpretation announced the extremely high artistic level of the Concert season. W. A. Mozart’s Rondo at the beginning of the concert, stylishly clean and convincing, introduced audience into the atmosphere of Gaubert and his Nocturne and Scherzando, which gave a splendid colour of flute sound in a harmony with piano. The central part of the concert, Reineke’s Sonata Undine, the work of exceptional virtuosic weight and musical content, won the audience with the incredible ease of performing the most difficult technical sections and mastery in the phrase through dialogue with the piano. The high quality of education of these two young artists by top concert performers (Janos Balint-flute, Germany and Yuri Kot-piano, Ukraine) escalated to artistic incarnation. The Italian concert of Demersseman, often performed at concerts, left the audience breathless, but not without an encore, with which this concert was successfully concluded and invited everyone to attend the next one in October.
