Reflections at Norwich Playhouse

On Saturday 21st January 2012 I made my way to Norwich Playhouse for The Paul Cross Memorial Concert presented by The Norfolk and Norwich Novi Sad Association. The concert was entitled Reflections and featured a piano recital from Rita Kinka. The concert raised money for the Milan Petrovic School for children with special needs in Novi Sad.

The programme consisted of An die ferne Geliebte (to the distant lover) transcription of the songs - Beethoven - Liszt, Gondoliera from Annees de Pelerinage, Italy 2nd year - Liszt, Jeux d'eaux - Liszt, Legende no.2 St. Franciscus marchant sur les flots - Liszt, Echoes - Mokranjac and Pictures at an Exhibition - Mussorgsky.

Serbian Rita Kinka gave a brilliant performance that delighted everyone in attendance at Norwich Playhouse on an emotional evening. The highlight of the recital had to be Echoes, a piece which is reflective and gentle composed by Vasilije Mokranjac who is probably the most famous Serbian composer.
