Another international project, in which in the first half of the program two great violinists will perform with the orchestra – Lars Magnus Steinum from Norway, concertmaster of the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra, and Miroslav Potfaj, who has been permanently active as a soloist and organizer of musical life in Norway and in Slovakia is known mainly thanks to the CD Rinaldo’s Legacies, where he revived the legacy of the legendary Rinaldo Oláh with his friends. The second part of the program will be devoted to one of the most famous classical symphonies “Surprise” by Joseph Haydn, which is one of the favorite repertoire pieces of the Slovak Sinfonietta´s Honorary Chief Conductor Leoš Svárovský and the members of the orchestra.
