Russian Masters - CySO Evening Concerts
Prokofiev’s “Overture on Hebrew Themes” was initially conceived and written for clarinet, string quartet and piano in 1919, and it wasn’t until 1934 that he was finally persuaded to arrange it for orchestra. Tchaikovsky’s “Variations on a Rococo Theme”, is the closest the composer ever came to writing a concerto for cello and orchestra, with the theme being an original tune written by Tchaikovsky himself in the Rococo style. Similarly, in his Orchestral Suite no. 1, the composer begins and ends the work with a throwback to the Baroque period – a Fugue and a Gavotte respectively – with the four inner movements however tracing their origins to the Classical era.

Chamber Music Concerts
Within the scope of the Cyprus Symphony Orchestra’s Chamber Music Concerts, five wind players join forces for an interesting proposal comprising two suites originally written for piano. For who isn’t familiar with Mussorgski’s “Pictures at an Exhibition” which, however, may be better-known through Ravel’s orchestral arrangement? Well, here’s a chance to “view” these pictures from a different perspective! And that’s also the case with Cypriot composer Solon Michaelides’ “Greek Suite”, which, even though initially written for piano, was later arranged by the composer himself for cello and piano, while in this concert it’s presented in yet another arrangement, preserving however all the grace and finesse of the original work.
