2010x62 Hindemith-Mahler-Bruckner

  • 2010-08-31T20:00:00Z — 180 mins

Hindemith: Symphony 'Mathis der Maler'. Hindemith’s Symphony ‘Mathis der Maler’ (‘Mathis the Painter’) is often said to have been extracted from his opera of the same name. Certainly the same music appears in both, but the symphony was the earlier work. In 1933, the year of the Nazi seizure of power, Hindemith accepted the suggestion of his publisher Willy Strecker that he should compose an opera based on the life of the Renaissance painter Matthias Grünewald (c1475/80–1528), whose real name was Mathis Gothart Nithart. Grünewald’s masterpiece is the set of paintings executed at the beginning of the 16th century on the altar for the hospital of the monastery at Isenheim in Alsace. Now preserved in Colmar, near Strasbourg, this Isenheim altar-piece is well known in Germany as one of the supreme treasures of late
German medieval art.

Mahler: Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen (17 mins). Christian Gerhaher: baritone. The Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen (‘Songs of a Wayfaring Lad’), composed between 1883 and 1885, left a particularly strong imprint on the roughly contemporary First Symphony. The first verse of the second song, ‘Ging heut’ morgen über’s Feld’, forms the main theme of that symphony’s first movement – and a fair amount of its continuation; while the final verse of the fourth song (beginning ‘Auf der Strasse steht ein Lindenbaum’ – ‘Upon the road there stands a linden tree’) reappears as the Trio section of the First Symphony’s sinister Funeral March. This connection emphasises something the casual reader of the Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen texts might miss: that the linden tree under which the wandering boy finds peace is a symbol of death. In the song, we have just a couple of bars of the opening funereal tune to cloud the quiet ecstasy of the singer’s final words: ‘All was well again! All! All! Love and sorrow, the world and dreams!’ That opposition – warm, soothing hope one moment, cold emptiness t

2010x69 Royal Scottish National Orchestra

  • 2010-09-06T20:00:00Z — 180 mins

The Royal Scottish National Orchestra and its French-born Music Director, Stéphane Denève, join Paul Lewis as he rounds off his cycle of the five Beethoven piano concertos with the last and most proudly majestic of them all.

Taking up this afternoon's Italian theme, they play spectacular orchestral showpieces by Berlioz and Respighi, inspired respectively by Rome's lively street life and its imperial past; while, cementing Celtic connections, they introduce a recent symphonic suite drawn from the Scottish composer James MacMillan's opera The Sacrifice, inspired by the medieval folk tales of The Mabinogion and premiered to great acclaim by Welsh National Opera in 2007.

2010x76 Last Night of The Proms

  • 2010-09-11T20:00:00Z — 180 mins

Tradition meets high jinks as Jiří Bělohlávek conducts his second Last Night, while the spirit of Henry Wood presides, as always, over the grand finale of the Proms. Renée Fleming lends her lustrous soprano to music by Strauss, Dvořák and Smetana. Former Radio 3 New Generation Artist Maxim Rysanov gives Tchaikovsky's popular cello variations a new voice, and loyal Prommers can spot the last traces of the season's Wood, Parry, Wagner, Rodgers and Hammerstein and opera themes.

A festive new piece by Jonathan Dove opens the evening; a contemporary hornpipe forms an upbeat to anniversary composer Arne's Rule, Britannia!; and audiences around the UK can join the Royal Albert Hall crowd in singing along to excerpts from Lohengrin and Carousel in a climax to the BBC's opera season
