The Beauty of Baroque- CySO

In memory of Krasen Penev
Lefkosia: Saturday 3 April 2021
Pallas Theatre, Pafos Gate, 20:30


After a four-month absence of live performances in Lefkosia, the Cyprus Symphony Orchestra returns to Pallas Theatre to present a heartfelt tribute to its beloved violinist member, Krasen Penev, who recently passed away.
The programme comprises  four beautiful masterpieces from the late baroque era, by its foremost representatives J. S. Bach, G. F. Handel, A. Vivaldi and Τ. Albinoni, featuring six musicians of the CySO as soloists, and play-directed by our concertmaster Wolfgang Schroeder.
Baroque music exalts man as part of society and the cosmos. Ideals such as the expression of the whole spectrum of emotion, from deep pain to ecstatic joy, dance forms and a clear sense of proportions bestow this music an incomparable aesthetic beauty and intensity that delights and moves the listener.
