Programme

VaClaF 2017 PROGRAM | 14.-24.09.2017
“ZaJedno” / ZuSamme(l)n / T(w)ogether

Celebrating our first five years of intense artistic journey and describing how from the first concert, through the „Music for the Beggining and the End of Time“, “Love (Music) Without Borders” has brought us “Together”.
The Festival will be an homage to everyone that are inspiring, helping and supporting us to grow from the very beginning on – in every possible way.
Bringing people together, within Bosnia and Herzegovina and internationally, has been always my mission and I believe that this is the best way to show it.
All the themed concerts are there with a reason and meaning, sending an engaged, personal but as well global, artistic message.
So, welcome on board and please be wild and outrageous.

The Art is Alive!!!
Yours truly,
Andrea Nikolić

Reopening Together!

„Art“ is Feminine / „Umjetnost“ je ženskog roda

„Ponovno otvaranje“ koncertom djela isključivo žena kompozitorica ima posebno mjesto u konceptu ovogodišnjeg festivala. Postavlja pitanja granica i mogućnosti u kreativnom stvaralaštvu kroz povijest, sadašnjost i budućnost, istovremeno dajući nedvosmislen odgovor: jedan koncert nije dovoljan da bi se sve obuhvatile, predstavile i pokazale. Jer izvrsnih je uvijek bilo – ali najčešće nisu imale prostor. Stoga, sestrama Boulanger, L. Farrenc i D. Pejačević uz bok predstavljaju se genijalne suvremene kompozitorice i zahtijevaju – svojim radom i stvaralaštvom, sve do jedne – ravnopravnu priliku i poziciju na umjetničkom nebu.

The „Reopening“ concert with works of only female composers has a very special place at this year's Festival. It is opening questions of boundariens, limitations, opportunity and exposure. Not creativity – that has always been present. Giving as well an answer: one concert is not enough to present us all. But it is giving a voice: beautiful art throughout the last 200 years will be presented and brilliant women have joined together to claim the eqality on the artistic sky. Our art is for everyone to hear.

190 post - Beethoven years Together

Beethoven & hommage

Koncert za klavir br.1! Prvi pravi slobodni umjetnik i revolucionar umro je prije 190 godina, a njegova glazba živa je i aktualna, kao i njegov umjetnički duh. Program se ne sastoji od njegovih najizvođenijih djela, već pomalo melankolično i sudbinski okružen a-mol i c-mol djelima nostalgično propitkuje glazbenu sadašnjost. Pasculli je u programu kako bi udahnuo dah talijanskog duha u revoluciju – kao kontrapunkt Beethovenovom stilu, labuđim pjevom Bellinijevih melodija.

Our first Concert for Piano is celebrating the first real freelance Artist, and maybe the gratest of them all – the brilliant Ludwig van Beethoven. The selected programme is nostalgic and melancholic, surrounded by A and C minor works. One melodic hommage to Bellini, in the middle, so that Italian opera melody master counterparts the Revolutionary.

II. Allegretto scherzoso
III. Molto vivace

2. Antonio Pasculli (1842 - 1924): Hommage a Bellini (10)

3. Ludwig van Beethoven: 6 Bagatelles, Op.126

4.Ludwig van Beethoven: Gudački kvintet u c-molu, op.104 / String Quintet in C-Minor, Op.104 (30)

I. Allegro con brio
II. Andante cantabile con variazioni
III. Menuetto. Quasi allegro
IV. Finale. Prestissimo
