2006 Germany, Slovakia, Czech Republic

In autumn 2006 Armenian Philharmonic Orchestra (APO) participated in the 41st International Music Festival Mruavski Podzim (Muravian Autumn) held in Brno, Czech Republic. This is one of the most famous music festivals in Europe. The organizer of the concert was (ARS Koncert agency).

APO participated in three festivals (two in Czech republic and one in Slovakia) and was included in the regular concert season program at Meistersingerhallen in Nuremberg, Germany.

In all festivals the performance of APO was very much appreciated. Particularly it was seen in the second part of the performance, where the orchestra plays without a soloist. The public was applauding standing and calling APO for “bis”.

PRAGUE
The APO concert at Prague Autumn Musical Festival was held on September 29 at Dvorak Hall of Rudolfinum. The concert program included

1. Excerpts from Spartakus ballet and Violin concerto of Aram Khachaturian
2. Symphony No 6 “Pathetique” by Pyotor Ilyich Tchaikovski

The public was very much impressed and called the orchestra for “bis”.

BRNO
The second was Brno 41st International Music Festival Mruavski Podzim (Muravian Autumn) festival at Janackovo divadlo hall in which APO performed on October 2. The program was

1.Excerpts from Spartakus ballet and Violin concerto of Aram Khachaturian
2.Symphony No 6 by Dmirtri Shostakovich

APO definitely surpassed all the expectations of the organizers and audience.

BRATISLAVA
The Bratislava Music Festival is also with old traditions and was holding its 42nd event this year. APO performed on October 3 at Slovak Philharmonic concert hall with the following program.

1. Violin concerto No 1 by Dmitri Shostakovich

The Armenians received the warmest welcome from the Brno audience

A week ago the audience of the Moravian Autumn festival in Brno had a chance to hear the concert of “exotic” guest orchestra – the Armenian Philharmonic with Maestro Eduard Topchjan and the young violinist from Berlin Sophia Jaffé.
The orchestra disposes with a rich sound and advanced virtuosity of the musicians, which they fully used in the music of “their” composer Aram Khachaturjan, and in the Schostakovitsch 6th Symphony as well.
In the Spartacus ballet suite the orchestra used more the deep masculine registers, which corresponded with the expressive and rhythmically explicit structure of the composition. While in the Schostakovisch symphony they created deeper contact with the audience. / It is a pity that this contact was interrupted by the inappropriate ovations between the movements…/.

The opening Adagio caught us with the typical Shostakovitsch´s meditation. The quick movements were full of instrumentation colours and expressional nuances, very well was described author’s endeavour for joy with the undertone of grotesqueness and irony. The slight nuances were perfectly performed with entirety and guided by the conductor’s functional and modest gestures, and with feeling of the conductor’s clear conception.

The highlight of the evening was the performance of the charming soloist. She cooped with the Khachaturjan´s technically demanding and large violin concerto with marvellous spontaneousness. She performed the concerto with a “male” expression and inwardness in the slow movement – in spite of the fact that the composer ´s message is more of academic and technical value, and also not very coherent.
The concert ended with standing ovations, which we can experience only after really excellent performances.
