Thanks to the claim “Peaceful Revolution”, initiated by Kurt Masur as one of six prominent citizens of Leipzig, everything proceeded peacefully. That evening, the Gewandhausorchester played under his baton Brahms’ Second Symphony at the St. Nicolas Church. The following regular "Monday Demonstrations", which came to be described as the “Peaceful Revolution”, became a major milestone on the way to open the Berlin Wall one month later on November the 9th in 1989 and paving the foundations for the reunification of the two German states. Exactly 20 years later, the Gewandhausorchester and Kurt Masur commemorate the beginning of the German reunification by presenting the same symphony at the same location.

Mendelssohns - Piano Concerto No. 1 in G minor (op. 25) , Yuja Wang, Kurt Masur (Full)

Kurt Masur (direction) Yuja Wang (piano) Verbier Festival Orchestra Mendelssohn piano concerto opus 25 Mendelssohn's Piano Concerto No. 1 in G minor (op. 25) was written in 1830--1, around the same time as his fourth symphony ("Italian"), and premiered in Munich in October 1831. He had already written a piano concerto in A minor with string accompaniment (1822) and two concertos with two pianos (1823--4). The three connected movements — Molto allegro con fuoco in G minor Andante in E major Presto—Molto allegro e vivace in G major use several relatively new formal techniques in their brief span — for example, the piano enters very soon after the opening of the first movement, with little of an orchestral tutti to contrast with.[1] The concerto quickly obtained popularity, and contains many sections of improvisation, one of Mendelssohn's specialities. ===================== 王羽佳 門德爾松 - 鋼琴協奏曲 庫特·馬祖爾

Kräftig, Entschieden (34:06) PART II 34:00 II. Tempi di Menuetto. Sehr mäßig (8:20) 43:26 III. Comodo. Scherzando. Ohne Hast (16:25) 59:44 IV. Sehr langsam. Misterioso. Durchaus ppp (9:19) "O Mensch!

Ruhevoll. Empfunden (23:41) *** "Blissful trust" Those who were able to be there in person are unlikely ever to forget the occasion. Whenever Claudia Abbado conducts Mahler, especially when he is at the head of his own Lucerne Festival Orchestra, the whole is more than just the sum of its parts thanks to a process that one is tempted to call magical. The present live recording of an acclaimed performance of Mahler's Third Symphony at Lucerne's Culture and Convention Centre on 19 August 2007 provides lasting proof of this and allows us to see that with Abbado ecstasy is never achieved at the expense of musical and rhetorical clarity: a powerful emotional charge is held in check by calm contemplation. Never for a moment does Abbado give undue emphasis to subjective mawkishness or an overtly theatrical sense of worldweariness: Abbado's Mahler is precisely calculated and at the same time intuitively felt. The musicians of the Lucerne Festival Orchestra were meeting for the Orth time when they assembled in Lucerne in the summer of 2007. Among them were not only a number of distinguished soloists but also experienced principals from the world's foremost orchestras: the leaders were Kolja Blacher and Sebastian Breuninger, while the rank-and-file violin sec-tion behind them included players of the eminence of Mirijam Contzen and llya Gringolts. The cellos ware led by Jens Peter Maintz and Natalia Gutman sitting alongside Valentin Erben of the Alban Berg Quartett and Clemens Hagen, whose sister, Veronika, was a member of the viola section under Wolfram Christ and Diemut Poppen. The woodwind section in-cluded the flautist Jacques Zoon and the ciarinettist Sabine Meyer, while prominent among the brass was the trumpeter Reinhold Friedrich. All the plavers are friendly with one another es weil as sharing a special affinity for chamber music, which famously makes the greatest demands in terms ofthe need to listen closely to one's colleagues. And it is here thatthis orchestra is unique, a uniqueness clear from the present performance. The large concert hell seerned literally to vibrate with psychic energy, and the intensity with which the musicians responded to even the tiniest fluctuations in the music reached the point where all the players seemed to surpass themselves. "The goal is clear and is shared by all the participants," wrote the critic ofthe Neue ZürcherZeitung; "it seems that in advancing towards this goal, the players achieve a high degree of individual responsibility, while the conductor encourages each and every one ofthem ... to realize his or her potential in orderto benefitthe collective— an example of successful leadership in a highly specialized context. As such, this is more or less the opposite of what people normally assume to be the job of a conductor. What we saw here was emphatically not self-promotion ata stroke butthe experience that something special arises only when people have space in which to develop." Abbado first recorded Mahler's Third Symphony in 1980, following it up with a second recording in 1999, both of them demonstrating the conductor's particular affinity with the work. His unerring feel tor the narrative structures of this rich and varied score finds expression in an extraordinary sensitivity, aliowing hirn to respond with particular vividnessto a workthat deals with nothing lass than the origins ofthe universe.

Felix Mendelssohn - String Octet in E flat major, Op. 20

Felix Mendelssohn - String Octet in E flat major, Op. 20

- Composer: Jakob Ludwig Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy (3 February 1809 -- 4 November 1847) - Performers: Jascha Heifetz (violin), Arnold Belnick (violin), Israel Baker (violin), Joseph Stepansky (violin), Gabor Rejto (cello), Virginia Majewski (viola), Gregor Piatigorsky (cello), William Primrose (viola) - Year of recording: 1961 Octet for strings in E flat major, Op. 20, written in 1825. 00:00 - I. Allegro moderato ma con fuoco 12:48 - II. Andante 18:23 - III. Scherzo 22:41 - IV. Presto Mendelssohn’s Octet in E-flat major was composed in the autumn of 1825 (completed on 15 October), when the composer was only 16. He wrote it as a birthday gift for his friend and violin teacher Eduard Rietz (born 17 October 1802); it was slightly revised in 1832 before the first public performance on 30 January 1836 at the Leipzig Gewandhaus. Conrad Wilson summarizes much of its reception ever since: “Its youthful verve, brilliance and perfection make it one of the miracles of nineteenth-century music.” The piece is particularly significant in Mendelssohn's career as it was one of two singularly brilliant works considered to be a signpost of his genius in his teenage years. (The other work thus identified is the equally brilliant "Overture to A Midsummer Night's Dream" from 1826, uploaded on this channel.) It was also the first string octet to be written as a true eight-part work and to this day remains the finest work in that form extant. It bridges the gap between Mendelssohn the chamber composer and Mendelssohn the symphonist in a particularly effective way. The scherzo, later scored for orchestra as a replacement for the minuet in the composer’s First Symphony at its premiere, is believed to have been inspired by a section of Goethe’s Faust entitled “Walpurgis Night’s Dream.” Fragments of this movement recur in the finale, as a precursor to the “cyclic” technique employed by later 19th-century composers. The entire work is also notable for its extended use of counterpoint, with the finale, in particular, beginning with an eight-part fugato. The original score is for a double string quartet with 4 violins and pairs of violas and cellos. Mendelssohn instructed on the public score, “This Octet must be played by all the instruments in symphonic orchestral style. Pianos and fortes must be strictly observed and more strongly emphasized than is usual in pieces of this character.” The work has been compared to Louis Spohr’s 1823 Double Quartet No.1, Op. 65 in D minor, and stands out as one of the absolute highlights in the chamber music repertoire.
