Evening Hamburg For Concerts

There are various styles of concerts in Hamburg which is different from concerts in other countries. I don't hesitate to walk in night city of Hamburg when I have concerts or trippings.

Since end of last month I and some of my concerned members were little bit confusing schedules in Hamburg caused by Autumn vacation of this year which had not been registered neither on German calendars nor our diaries, I don't know why. Fortunately I could be informed it from JBK just one week before the vacation, therefore I informed it to people who were confusing and changed schedule together betterly, whether the vacation was only for Hamburg or entire territory of Germany.

Too long October of this year had been finally finished. I was preparing three violin concertos and virtuoso pieces with Professor Alexandre Brussilovsky during his violin masterclasse at Alfred Schnittke Akademie International in Hamburg on 27 October - 05 November 2015 as intensive as possible for coming concerts in coming months. There my main questions about violin interpretations which I could not resolve during my violin practice alone had been vanished too easily and I was really exciting for those work out until yesterday. We began working from Mozart and finished with "La Campanella" - 2nd Violin Concerto by Niccolò Paganini yesterday and our concert at Förderverein Alfred Schnittke Akademie e.V. had been held on 03 November 2015. Here's the program ;


Förderverein Alfred Schnittke Akademie e.V. Konzert (03 November 2016, Konzertsaal Förderverein Alfred Schnittke Akademie e.V. Hamburg Germany)


Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart : Violin Concerto No. 5 KV219 (Cadenza : Naoko Matsui)

Niccolò Paganini : Violin Concerto No. 1 Op. 6 (Cadenza : Émile Sauré)

 Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart : Violin Concerto No. 5 KV219 (Cadenza : Joseph Joachim)

It was the first time that I presented my own composed cadenza for 5th Violin Concerto "Turkish" by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and 1st Violin Concerto by Niccolò Paganini at Förderverein Alfred Schnittke Akademie e.V. in Hamburg on 03 November 2015. Fortunately the concert had been succeeded and was very nice. There their musical effects (including my cadenza) were much better than I was estimating. After the concert I convinced myself that I will be enough capable to perform them continuously in coming months. However, I'm also ready for cadenzas by both Joseph Joachim and Arthur Grumiaux for 5th violin concerto by Mozart in order to researching the concerto interpretations and my own cadezas composing. For the 1st violin concerto by Paganini I began finding or being inspired how to breath for the interpretations/expressions during concert performance. Anyway good concertos should be performed as many as possible without boring.

Two days before of the concert performing I visited to Hafen City University of Hamburg to listen "Les Tableaux sur une exhibition / Bilder einer Ausstellung" of Mussorgsky arranged for a new Concerto Grosso for Violin, Cello, Piano and Srings in 24 Movements by my friend composer Boris Kosak and Professor Alexandre Brussilovsky performed with them. The concert was intellectually very interesting and I liked the quality of their tones.

In true, my opportunity of giving the premiere of one of Boris Kosak's works in this year had been postponed due to a concert fraud of an amateur conductor (who I heard, had been punished in this August) with his complicity couple, unfortunately. However there I had not been damaged at all because it was only a postponement of them (not cancelled), fortunately. Now I and my concerned try reorganizing those premiere concerts at the same time of our major classical concerts program.
