Andris Nelsons conducts Brahms

Andris Nelsons conducts Brahms

Lucerne Festival in Summer 2014 Opening Concert


Brahms:

Serenade No. 2 in A Major, Op. 16

Alto Rhapsody, Op. 53

Sara Mingardo (alto)

Bavarian Radio Choir

Symphony No. 2 in D major, Op. 73


In 2014, all signs pointed to a new beginning at the Lucerne Festival. For the first time, the festival would take place without the incomparable Claudio Abbado, with the young Latvian Andris Nelsons leading the Lucerne Festival Orchestra. Nelsons had already won the trust and respect of both listeners and performers in a moving memorial concert for Abbado in Lucerne. He is known internationally as one of the most gifted conductors of his generation.

Now he was poised to lead the prestigious festival into a new era – he brilliantly mastered this “greatest challenge” (as he himself called it) of his career. The audience and the musicians responded with heart‐felt gratitude. “He is aware of every single player and carries us on an unbelievable wave of enthusiasm”, according to concertmaster Sebastian Breuninger. Solo violist Wolfram Christ adds, “Nelsons accepts what is inherent in our orchestra and what comes from Abbado; he builds on it and makes it into something new.”

Daniil Trifonov: The Magics Of Music

Daniil Trifonov: The Magics Of Music

plus The Castelfranco Veneto Recital


The films offer an intimate view of the artist and his hardly-believable gifts which are currently astonishing the world. Daniil Trifonov started to play the piano at the age of five, not because he wanted to play the piano but because he wanted to compose.

That was unusual enough but it was only the beginning of a musical quest which led to his winning both the Tchaikovsky and Rubinstein competitions at the age of 20 — an astonishing feat.

In these two films Trifonov talks revealingly about his musical concerns but his modesty prevents him from saying anything at all about his extraordinary technique, “I am just playing the piano” he says. “There are people doing even more crazy things”.

The films contain a number of performances shot live on stage with cameras unusually close to the artist which adds consideraby to the power of the images. They also present him in conversations which demonstrate his earnestness, his exceptional modesty and his gloriously high intelligence.

In the portrait film Trifonov plays music by Chopin, Ravel and Trifonov himself: part of his first piano Concerto, filmed at the world premiere performance which took place at the Cleveland Institute, in the United States, in April 2014.

In the performance film he plays music by Chopin, Scriabin, Johann Strauss (arranged Trifonov) and Rachmaninov — a performance of the rarely heard Variations on a Theme of Chopin, in the elegant Teatro Accademico in Castelfranco Veneto, near Venice in Italy.

After the success of the DVDs devoted to Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme and Cadmus & Hermione, Vincent Dumestre and Le Poème Harmonique continue their exploration of repertoires of the 17th century.

This piece, combining theatre and music, allowed Purcell to achieve his dramatic ideal. In fact, he wrote only a single opera in his short career – he died at the age of 36 –, but with it, he left us a gem of rare beauty and extreme concision. The work’s genius is also due in part to the quality of the libretto, skilfully put together by Nahum Tate.

Cécile Roussat and Julien Lubek, stage directors coming from the arts of the circus and the mime Marceau, had already collaborated with Le Poème Harmonique on the Carnaval Baroque. Here, they combine mime, dance and acrobatics with the music in a moving, magical production.

and readings


'Easter from King’s' is the first DVD release of the regular BBC broadcast, which forms a cornerstone of the BBC’s Easter programming. This service was first broadcast at Easter 2014 from the College’s awe-inspiring Chapel. Featuring seasonal hymns and readings alongside choral favourites, including Allegri’s 'Miserere', the Lacrimosa from Mozart’s Requiem, the Hallelujah Chorus from Handel’s 'Messiah' and Cesar Frank’s 'Panis Angelicus', this collection presents a contemplation of Christ’s death and resurrection.

This world-famous choir is perhaps best-known for its Christmas broadcasts, but gives daily sung services in the beautiful surroundings of King’s College Chapel. Cameras are normally forbidden during services, so this DVD provides a rare opportunity to experience the choir engaged in its core activity, celebrating the most important festival of the Christian calendar.

The DVD joins the label’s other critically-acclaimed recordings including their first celebrated DVD release, 'Carols from King’s' and will be accompanied by an extensive international press and marketing campaign.

Booklet with notes in English and a reproduction of the original service booklet with hymn texts.

Marta Kurtág, Gyorgy Kurtág (piano)

Subtitled ‘Játékok - Games and Transcriptions for piano solo and four hands’, this is a film, directed by Isabelle Soulard, of a concert given in September 2012 at Paris’s Cité de la Musique by the composer György Kurtág and his wife.

The duo performances of Márta and György Kurtág have long been distinguished by flinty new music precision, matched by a quick-witted playfulness and underpinned by a quality of affection. “What playing!” raved the New Yorker’s Alex Ross of a ‘Játékok’ concert. “Notes were placed with surgical care; inner voices gleamed in crystalline patterns; elusive emotional states were painted with quick, light strokes.” From its origins in the early 1970s as a good-humoured unsystematic approach to teaching contemporary keyboard techniques to young players (early pieces in the series included use of clusters, glissandi, harmonics, playing with palms and forearms - a wide range of gestures), ‘Játékok’ (Games) has developed into a compendium of epigrammatic homages, jewelled miniatures dedicated to composers from Scarlatti to Stravinsky and Christian Wolff, and tributes to colleagues and influences. In this special case the whole programme - 40 pieces plus three encores - is dedicated to the memory of the Kurtágs’ good friend, musicologist Haydée Charbagi (1979-2008). Interspersed amongst György Kurtág’s pieces are his much-admired Bach transcriptions - ‘Játékok’ is a work that has gained strength through contrasting and cross-referencing with other music. The whole programme closes with a radiant version of Bach’s ‘Gottes Zeit ist die allerbeste Zeit’.

Among ECM’s many widely-praised recordings of Kurtág’s music is a 1997 CD of ‘Játékok’ (4535112), likewise performed by the composer and his wife. “A very special experience - as memorable and as profound as any to be had from new music today,” said Gramophone.

DVD specification: Rating: E (exempt), Region Code: 0 (Worldwide)

“This film of a 2012 Paris concert shows the Kurtágs’ complete interdependence, one standing and watching every moment as the other plays, gently touching a shoulder or smiling as they finish. At the end they seem quite surprised the audience is there.” The Observer, 22nd February 2015 ****
