GMD Srba Dinic continues his work with the StaatsorchesterBraunschweig orchestra and preparations for a new symphonic concert are underway. For this occassion they chose two contemporaries, Tchaikovsky and Rimsky-Korsakov. They both worked as harmony, composition and orchestration professors, so the wealth of musical ideas skillfully knitted together in orchestral segments comes as no surprise.
Tchaikovsky’s third symphony has long been overshadowed by his other well known pieces and has not been performed as often. And yet, it is important for many novelties which Tchaikovsky introduced. It is the only symphony in major tonality, it has five movements, and its most important feature is in that the composer went a step ahead in its artistic freedom and adeptlyjoined different music forms. In a letter to his friend Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, he said it himself that with this piece he had gone a step further in his overall composing work. Rimsky-Korsakov was able to understand this well since he also had always sought new ideas and striven after higher personal development. Unfortunately, he did not always enjoy the affinity of the ruling monarchy as was the case with Golden Cockerel opera, the premier of which he did not live to see. In this concert parts from GoldenCockerel opera will be performed. This is a great challenge for an orchestra, to recreate opera in a concert performance, but not for Srba Dinic and Staatsorchestra Braunschweig. Their committment to both opera and symphnic music is seen in their everyday work where the two are constantly entwined.
