Information about the concert

Brothers Lucas and Arthur Jussen from the Netherlands are considered the best piano duo of today. They have been performing together for almost twenty years, which, given their young age, really means since their childhood. They play both four hands on one piano and two pianos, and in both ways they inspire awe, wonder, and enthusiasm. If the problem with almost every piano duo is not always precise synchronisation of keystrokes, which is to some extent understandable, this duo makes it seem as if any such impreciseness was impossible. They demonstrate their skill in Francis Poulenc’s Concerto for Two Pianos, a neoclassical, almost Mozartian work from 1932, featuring a charming dialogue between two soloists. According to the Anglophone media, the music of Zlín-born Jiří Kadeřábek, our contemporary, is expertly crafted and irresistible in its playful banter, impressive, serious and amusing, almost always revealing a mischievous twist. It is also said to be reminiscent of Picasso’s cubist paintings. The composition S – C – S refers to the historical forms of sinfonia, concerto grosso and solo concerto. It traces the development from purely orchestral music through a concert of soloists with orchestra to a concert of one soloist with orchestra. It uses this concept as a skeleton that protects the organs and to which the muscles are attached. Lyrical, dramatic, profound and virtuosic, Béla Bartók’s Concerto for Orchestra treats the instrumental groups like soloists. The work is a veritable musical firework, topped by a masterful counterpoint of multiple themes, from folk melodies to swirling perpetual motion. It is a distinctive synthesis of innovation and emotionality.

Programme:

  • Jiří Kadeřábek: S – C – S, commissioned composition, world premiere
  • Francis Poulenc: Concerto for Two Pianos
  • Béla Bartók: Concerto for Orchestra

The public dress rehearsal will take place on 16 June 2025 at 10:00. A pre-concert meeting with the artists will take place from 18:30 in the Talich Lounge.
