Finding a harmonious balance between music and life is very important for a musician. It is a constant struggle between dreams and reality, hopes and frustrations, self-realization and dedication, darkness and light. Life is a difficult trial, and it is rather a short journey. Artists, who do not give up trying to find some wisdom in rising above selfish thoughts and actions, may gradually become endowed with the power of profound positive impact on souls, and thus leave positive memories and gratitude to posterity.
The program reflects aspirations for the sublime (Bach) and pictures from everyday life (Gliere). The second half depicts a great artist’s life – with its joys, sorrows, legacy and mourning for the loss of a dear friend.
