Gustav Mahler Youth Orchestra (Gustav Mahler Jugendorchester)

Conductor: Daniele Gatti

Programme:
Dmitri Shostakovich, Symphony No. 7 in C Major, Op. 60, “Leningrad”

A pan-European talent pool, Gustav Mahler Jugendorchester is the legacy of a visionary artist, the great conductor Claudio Abbado. It is an idealistic project that ensures the future of Europe's cultural heritage by investing into the next generation. Uncompromising both in his humanistic vision and the musical standards he wanted to achieve, Abbado made this orchestra an elite institution from the very beginning, thus solidifying its international recognition and making it highly sought-after among concert soloists. Abbado’s worthy successor, Daniele Gatti is the last in the long line of GMJO’s great conductors (from Pierre Boulez and Iván Fischer to Mariss Jansons and David Afkham). Music director of Teatro dell'Opera di Roma and Orchestra Mozart in Bologna, Gatti was presented with the 2015  Italian music critics’ Premio “Franco Abbiati” and awarded the Chevalier de la Légion d'Honneur from the French Republic.

The orchestra, Ambassador of UNICEF Austria and winner of the prestigious European Cultural Foundation Award, stands apart from all other youth orchestras also in terms of repertoire. Its programmes are never mainstream, they are always engaging and demanding, and they follow thoroughly planned dramaturgical concepts: GMJO will undoubtedly display great maturity in confronting Shostakovich’s musical testament to the casualties of World War II, a symphonic work perfectly suited for this extremely large ensemble.
 


 

 

Actually, I have nothing against calling the Seventh the Leningrad, but it’s not about Leningrad under siege. It’s about the Leningrad that Stalin destroyed, and that Hitler merely finished off.
Dmitri Shostakovich
 

One sensed a maturity in the musicianship as well as technique that belied the irony of ‘youth’ dealing with a programme obsessed with the end of life.

ORF Radio-Symphonieorchester Wien (ORF Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra)

Conductor: Marin Alsop

Soloist: Rafał Blechacz, piano

Programme:
Julia Purgina, Farewell, Lady, Farewell, new work
Robert Schumann, Piano Concerto in A minor, Op. 54
*

Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, Scheherazade, Symphonic Suite, Op. 35

Austria’s most versatile orchestra, the ORF Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra forms a vital part of the Viennese orchestral tradition. Known for its bold programming, the orchestra annually performs film music at the “Hollywood in Vienna” gala in the Vienna Konzerthaus. A pioneer for greater opportunities for women conductors and an inspiring voice in the international music scene, Marin Alsop made history by becoming the first woman to take up the prestigious principal conductor role with the Vienna RSO.

Few pianists have won the Warsaw Chopin Competition as resoundingly as Rafal Blechacz did in 2005. A Polish classical pianist with a lively interest in the philosophy of music, Blechacz is often recognized as the greatest Chopin interpreter of his generation and praised as “one of the pianistic giants of our time” (The Sunday Times). He was named the 2014 Gilmore Artist.

In their signature programming style, the orchestra pairs Schumann’s vigorous musical inventiveness with the mysterious exoticism of Rimsky-Korsakov and places them in a contemporary context – a new work by Julia Purgina, an Austrian composer pursuing an interest in philology (German and Slovak languages).

 

 

Marin Alsop was impressive, not simply for the way she blithely yet energetically wielded control of every element of Mahler’s grandiose work, but for her sheer endurance.
Hedy Weiss


With a refined approach, Rafal Blechacz let each note and ornament breathe with a perfect amount of space. His technical brilliance was spellbinding on its own. But there was also evidence of his deep thoughtfulness.

Junge Deutsche Philharmonie

Conductor: Jonathan Nott

Soloist: Veronika Eberle, violin

Programme:
Anton Webern, Passacaglia, Op. 1
Béla Bartók, Violin Concerto No. 2, BB 117
*
Anton Webern, Five Pieces for Orchestra, Op. 10
Igor Stravinsky, The Rite of Spring, Scenes of Pagan Russia in Two Parts


An orchestra of the future, Junge Deutsche Philharmonie brings together high-spirited and prodigiously talented young musicians with an incredible drive to shape tomorrow’s musical world. The orchestra’s principal conductor and artistic advisor Jonathan Nott, whose rich and varied recording catalogue perfectly reflects his eclectic interests, has developed a reputation for his interpretations of avant-garde music. Displaying exceptional maturity of musicianship despite her young age, violinist Veronika Eberle has carved out a glittering career as a soloist. Student of the illustrious Ana Chumachenko, Eberle is recipient of the prestigious Bayernwerk AG Bavarian Culture Prize.

The evening’s programme of twentieth-century music encompasses innovative composition, musico-poetic diversity, radicalness and daring experimentation: from Webern’s early colourful expressivity, and scandalous sensationalism of Stravinsky, to Bartók’s stylistic maturity.


 

 

Junge Deutsche Philharmonie, a real phenomenon in the German orchestral and cultural landscape: their innovative spirit is unique from a structural, organisational and social point of view and requires the courage, attitude and commitment of each individual musician and the entire collective.
Rheingau Music Prize

Nott paced the paragraphs of music, sometimes crunchingly tension-building and ultimately triumphant, with unerring deliberation and wonderful certainty.
Christopher Morley

Eberle is very much a painter in sound, with her ability to change the colour palette in a stroke of the bow… Her tone on the “Dragonetti” Stradivarius was richly coloured in, and the controlled use of vibrato added changed hues with the highest degree of subtlety.
Leighton Jones

Montreal Symphony Orchestra (Orchestre symphonique de Montréal)

Conductor: Kent Nagano

Soloists:  
Nikolai Lugansky piano
Olivier Latry organ

Programme:
Béla Bartók, The Miraculous Mandarin, suite, Op. 19, BB 82
Camille Saint-Saëns, Symphony No. 3 in C minor, Op. 78, “Organ”
*
Johannes Brahms, Piano Concerto No. 2 in B-flat Major, Op. 83

 
The impressive Orchestre symphonique de Montréal is the world’s only orchestra to have in its ranks the rare octobass (the largest and lowest-sounding instrument of the string family). The orchestra’s home is Maison symphonique de Montréal, a concert hall noted for its acoustic flexibility whose setting has been adapted to suit the orchestra's natural sound. Since 2006 the orchestra has been dazzling international audiences under the baton of its music director, Kent Nagano, a conductor of great precision and elegance.

The evening’s soloists are Nikolai Lugansky, an Honoured Artist of the Russian Federation (2019) and a pianist who combines elegance and grace with powerful virtuosity, as well as Olivier Latry, “2009 International Performer of the Year” (American Guild of Organists, New York), an artist counted among the most noted “improvisateurs” in the exceptional French tradition and devoted to exploring the broadest spectrum of organ repertoire.

The evening’s programme reflects the curiosity and breadth Kent Nagano is known for: bringing to life lesser-known and neglected works and re-evaluating the core repertoire of classical orchestral music.
 

 

Widely acclaimed for his clear and cohesive orchestral performances, Nagano also demonstrates a thoughtfulness about social, historical and philosophical issues that is not often observed with conductors.
Rick Fulker

Instrumental glow, sustaining emotional warmth and, when wanted, scorching fire — a rare and marvelous combination and something that can be produced only by an orchestra in glowing health.
Los Angeles Times

Lugansky is not simply the most wonderful Russian pianist of modern times; he is one of the most outstanding artists of our epoch…
Le Monde

Latry, one of the instrument’s great colourists, a gifted virtuoso and improvisateur par excellence, is also a deeply thoughtful interpreter with a vivid musical imagination.

Il Pomo d’Oro - cancelled or postponed

Conductor and harpsichord: Maxim Emelyanychev

In compliance with the restrictive measures taken by the Government of RS to limit the second wave of the Coronavirus pandemic, Cankarjev dom has cancelled or rescheduled all events. All exhibitions are temporarily closed.

More about cancelled or postponed events >>


 

Soloists: Franco Fagioli Oreste; Francesca Aspromonte Ifigenia; Francesca Ascioti Filotete; Julia Lezhneva Ermione; Krystian Adam Pilade; Renato Dolcini Toante

Programme
George F. Handel
Oreste, opera in three acts, HWV A11, concert performance

Handel’s operatic masterpiece Oreste is a stylistically coherent pastiche for which the composer assembled a collection of arias from his earlier operas and oratorios, binding the music seamlessly with the newly-written recitatives to create a new musical drama. This rarely performed work is tackled by a winning team: the enthusiastic Il Pomo d'oro, “Orchestra of the Year 2018” (Gramophone), charismatic and inspiring Maxim Emelyanychev, recipient of the prestigious “Newcomer of the Year 2019” opera award, and the brilliant countertenor Franco Fagioli, “Argentinian Singer of the Year” (2017).

The Ljubljana audiences’ darlings are returning in the company of great vocalists; Julia Lezhneva – whose music releases have won several prestigious awards (Echo Klassik, Muse d'Or, Diapason d'Or, etc.), and Francesca Aspromonte – a specialist in Baroque opera roles, as well as several rising stars in the operatic firmament who are rapidly establishing themselves as some of the most interesting young voices for the Baroque repertoire. 

Drawing on mythological material adapted from Euripides' tragedy, Handel's Oreste reimagines the famous story about matricidal antihero Orestes and his long lost sister Iphigenia, this time in a concert performance.

Maxim Emelyanychev is a man on springs: he directs from the keyboard with almost manic intensity, alert to every rhythmic nuance in the score, urging his players on like a coachman driving a team of mane-tossing thoroughbreds.
Bachtrack

Even in a concert performance, Franco Fagioli completely inhabits the part ... He flounces, he preens, he purrs, he prowls ... decorates and embellishes with astonishing ease and supreme musicality.
Bachtrack

Il Pomo d’Oro, perhaps the most exciting Baroque ensemble of all time.
Guido Fischer

Akram Khan: Outwitting the Devil


Akram Khan is one of the most celebrated and respected dance artists today. His reputation has been built on the success of imaginative and relevant productions created over the course of two decades, including Until the Lions, Kaash, iTMOi (in the mind of igor), DESH, Vertical Road, Gnosis and zero degrees.

Outwitting the Devil is inspired by a fragment of the twelve broken clay tablets which together make up one of the world’s oldest great works of literature, the ancient Sumerian Epic of Gilgamesh. Akram Khan’s new work embodies a violent chapter in young Gilgamesh’s life, read and recalled by his older, dying self. It tells the story of Gilgamesh’s domestication of and friendship with the wild man Enkidu, their journey to the vast Cedar Forest, home to wild beings and spirits, and the slaughter of its guardian Humbaba. Fuelled by strength and pride, young Gilgamesh determines to establish his fame and fortify the city of Uruk as a monument to himself. But the killing of Humbaba and destruction of the forest and its animals angers the gods, who punish the young king by taking the life of his beloved Enkidu. Confronted with the truth and sorrow of human mortality, Gilgamesh passes into history, to become a fragment among the broken remnants of human culture and memory. Outwitting the Devil is a myth of all times, for our times.

Frédérick Gravel: Some Hope for the Bastards

Frédérick Gravel graduated from UQAM’s (Université du Québec à Montréal) dance faculty. He joined DLD (Daniel Léveillé Danse) as an associate creator in 2010 and was appointed artistic director of the company in 2018.

The choreographer, dancer, musician and lighting designer turns the structures of choreography upside down, merging into his work various elements from rock and performance art. Some Hope for the Bastards begins as a melancholic party, a dark celebration. A poetic hymn dedicated to the feelings of helplessness and apathy when everyone is waiting for something. However, this wait is a ticking time bomb ready to blow. Which doesn’t take long to happen.

The Bastards’ uncompromising energy finds release in dance pushed to its limits, a series of scenes driving further the stubbornness of rhythm, the punch, the beat. Always searching for the pulse whose racing beat is dictated by a live ‘rock’ pendulum.

End result? Blending choreography and music, with its narcotic, pounding pop beats, Gravel has composed a masterpiece for the senses. For anyone who loves pure rock music and edgy contemporary dance.
