Among the classic sounds of a Festival
One of the important musical activities in the country is the one conducted by the violinist Florian Vlashi, namely the “Classical Music Nights” Festival held every two years in Durres. Each edition brought a new idea to its country, new instrumentalists through careful selection and above all a new standard, which was lacking not only in Durres but also in Tirana. This year the idea of merging music with the “vein”, which sounds musically beautiful in the Geg dialect, even without drunken spectators is quite tempting. But innovation didn’t stop there. In the 7 nights of this edition, with different themes, new artists, new collaborations, contemporary works by the Durazzo composers and new excellent interpretations come on the scene. Yesterday’s attention was focused on the instrumentalists Zamir Kabo, Juliana Laska and Daniel Vlashi.
The pianist Zamir Kabo comes from Salzburg as part of the trio of classical pianists. After so many years away from his country of origin, which he did not have the kindness to admit, as he did with many others, he presents himself as a mature and rational pianist with the brilliant technique that characterizes him in the function of common sense.
A wonderful surprise was the violinist Daniel Vlashi. The 22-year-old continued to study at the Lyons Conservatory in the Marianne Piketty classroom in Corunja, Spain, and is looking forward to pursuing a master’s degree in Berlin. This precious and talented second generation of our musicians around the world is a testament to the Albanian artistic genre, but also to the vibrant and lasting radiation of our passion for art and music. However, this generation, starting from the Jonian Kadesha, and that who knows where it will end, is a generation that in any case makes us proud of our artistic level.
The cellist Juliana Laska, previously unknown in Albania, studied in Greece and then in France. So the three “young” instrumentalists for the Durres spectator were a natural curiosity of this night, joining the incredibly fascinating program of the classic works of Hayden, Mozart and Beethoven.
