Southern Cross Soloists are delighted to introduce Australian audiences to Miroslav Petkov, Principal Trumpet of the elite world orchestra, The Royal Concertgebouw Amsterdam.
Described as having ‘the eloquence of a great storyteller’ by the New York papers, Miroslav is one of the most dynamic trumpet soloists of today, and joins the Soloists for a thrilling program of brilliance and flair.
Beginning with the precipitous virtuosity of the piccolo trumpet in Bach’s second Brandenburg concerto, we take you on a journey of emotion through Copland’s melancholic Quiet City, and Prokofiev’s passionate Romeo and Juliet suites. Bulgarian composer Georgii Cherkin’s foot-stamping Sevdana and Bulgarian Dance will lead into our tribute to the great Leonard Bernstein’s 100th anniversary, with Hindson’s Homage to Bernstein, and Bernstein’s own West Side Story.
