CARNIVAL CONCERT

Eiji Oue conductor
Nemanja Radulovic violin

PROKOF’EV Symphony No.1 Op.25 Classic
PROKOF’EV Violin Concerto No.2 Op.63
DVOŘÁK Nocturne for Strings Op.40
MOZART Symphony No.38 K.504 Prague

The Carnival is a concert that shines light on Eastern Europe: Russia’s Prokof’ev in the first part and Bohemia in the second. Thanks to a Czech native like Dvořák and Mozart in Prague, where Mozart was adored, performed a symphony and is considered Classica because of the Mozart style. Prokof’ev composed it in the fateful year of the Revolution in 1917. But surprisingly no spirit of uprising is introduced.
He spent a great deal of time between this and Concerto No. 2 per violino: a fifteen year span during which Prokof’ev lives in the west, but the desire to be useful to the cause of socialism pushes him back home during Stalin’s era (and how much he will regret it later!). Japanese conductor Eiji Oue has done a great deal of work in the United States after being favored by Seji Ozawa and Leonard Bernstein. Serbian artist Nemanja Radulovic, is the beloved soloist who looks more like the leader of a rock band than a classical violinist.
