On the evening of February 18th, NTOB brought on stage “Songs of Fate”, a concert with works by Johaness Brahms and a premiere for the public. The protagonists of this evening were only young artists who brought a different sound and energy to the theater stage with their fresh voices.

After a 2 month training, they gave us one of the most beautiful concerts of this start of the season with a vocal-instrumental repertoire of high technical level by Johannes Brahms this weekend.

The works present various themes on the nostalgia of the past, the feeling of love, worries, as well as the relationship with nature. The works are also distinguished for their melodism, pleasant lines, rhythmic breaks as well as frequent harmonic jumps.
