Event Details

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.
