18th July 2013: Gala Concert of the European Summer Music Academy in Pristina


The begin of the concert was made by a Trio for piano, flute and cello, op.63 (Carl Maria von Weber). Laura Levai Aksin (flute, SER), Michael Kanka (Cello, CZ) and Lule Elezi (Piano, KOS). 

Then the German Soprano Singer, Caroline Merz, accompanied on the piano by Lule Elezi, sang "Waldeinsamkieit" by Max Reger, "Ich bin verliebt" by Nico Dostal and "Pride of my heart" by Richard Strauss. After this Endre Hegedus from Hungary played on the piano Lucia di Lammermoor - Reminiscences S.297 by Donizetti Liszt and Evening at the Szeklers and Alegro Barbaroo by Bela Bartok. By Bertram Egger, an Austrian clarinetist, and Jaromir Klepac, a Czech pianist, Robert Schumann "Fantasie Pieces for clarinet and piano" was played. The Mezzosoprano Meritta Juniku from Kosovo got the audience electrified by singing G.Verdi: "Il Trovatore" aria Stride la vampa; G.Bizet: "Carmen" Habanera - L'amour est on oiseau rebelle." C.Saint Saens: "Samson et Dalilah" aria Mon Coeur s'ouvre ta voix  and finished with G.Verdi: "Don Carlo" aria O don fatale. 

It was difficult for Prof.Oto Vrhovnik from Austria to follow after such a great performance of Meritta Juniku, but he managed also to get the audience caught in his WOW, six memories of alto Saxophone and tape as well as in YES (in the form of waltz) for alto saxophone and tape. 

The final piece of the concert was from Ludwig v.Beethoven with a Trio for piano, clarinet and Cello, B flat major, op.11, 1.Allegro con brio: Marcel Lallemang (clarinet, LUX), Michal Kanka (Cello, CZ), Jaromir Klepac (Piano, CZ).
