Concerto for violin and orchestra 

Francesco D'Orazio

György Ligeti's Violin Concerto is one of his most celebrated works. The composer's late style interests: microtonality, polyrhythms, auditory illusions and references to folk and early music, are combined in a multiplicity of effects and techniques, atmospheres and colors. This concert will be the debut at the Teatro Colón of the prestigious Italian violinist Francesco D'Orazio, who will also perform Luciano Berio's Sequenza VIII, a key work for solo violin in the 20th century repertoire. The program will open with another concert: "Kuleshov", by the Argentinian Oscar Strasnoy, performed by pianist Marcelo Balat, also Argentinian. Inspired by the cinematographic effect of the same name, the work is based on the montage of the same musical idea that is surrounded by different material in each repetition, affecting the way it is perceived.
