Christmas Concert in the Slovak Philharmonic
Christmas holidays represent a kind of fixed point in the cycle of life, to which every subsequent year, full of new uncertainties, surprises and challenges, will surely result again
It is a period when we try to find more time for our loved ones, for relaxation, for what brings us joy and peace. Not only silence, immersion in oneselves, but also the nice things that we love and know well, all this can bring us the desired peace.
Therefore, traditional carols and popular compositions by authors composing across styles have their inseparable place during the Christmas holidays. You can enjoy them in Advent time in Bratislava’s Reduta in the performance of masters of their art.
Rastislav Štúr, longtime chief conductor of the Slovak National Theatre Opera, regularly cooperates with the Slovak Philharmonic. The Bratislava Boys’ Choir, led by the conductor, founder and manager Magdaléna Rovňáková, performs at home and abroad, but also performs and records for television and film.
During four concerts, there will be a number of songs that will evoke the true Christmas atmosphere. In the premiere you will experience the work of Ľuboš Bernáth Musica pastoralis, a mix of Christmas carols by Zdeněk Macháček, Mille cherubini in coro, D. 498 by Franz Schubert, compositions Sleigh Ride and Forgotten Dreams by Leroy Anderson, there will also be a Christmas Latin hymn Adeste fideles, but also the composition Panis angelicus by César Franck, or the work For the Beauty of the Earth by John Rutter and, of course, the worldwide famous Silent Night by Franz Xaver Gruber, without which we can no longer imagine Christmas holidays.
