Kurt Masur - A Life in Music

Описание

To celebrate his 80th birthday, Kurt Masur led "his" Gewandhaus Orchestra in a special gala concert in June 2007. For his birthday concert, Masur, currently principal conductor of the London Philharmonic Orchestra and the Orchestre National de France, chose a varied, celebratory programme with works by composers highlighting his conducting career in the United States, France and Germany. The night progressed with works by Bernstein, Bizet and Brahms and -- as a special present - a song from Gershwin's Porgy and Bess, sung by entertainer Harald Schmidt. At Kurt Masur's wish, the popular German TV entertainer, a former church musician, hosted the show, demonstrating his quick-witted humour and general knowledge of all aspects of music. Abounding in energy, alert as ever, Masur has been untiringly lending new impulses to the entire orchestral repertoire. From 1970 until 1996 he did so as Gewandhaus Kapellmeister of the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, a position that has almost come to be identified with his name. He is still Conductor Laureate of the ensemble; the fact that he chose the orchestra for his birthday celebration expresses his gratitude and respect for the orchestra that accompanied him during momentous and troubled times.
Kurt Masur had an eventful life - he was famously swept into politics as a peacemaker when the Berlin Wall was about to fall. He was recently awarded Germany's Great Cross of the Legion of Honour with Star and Ribbon -- the highest state honour given by the Federal Republic. EuroArts joins the round of congratulations with this DVD -- an homage to a great artist and credible humanist.

Allegretto grazioso 31:26 IV: Allegro con spirito Watch the full concert here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLBjoEdEVMABLHsPnmDHO3SGZ6YFNG5rqO On 9 October 1989, 70,000 people staged a non-violent demonstration calling for more freedom and democracy in the GDR. 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)

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

Orquestra Filarmonica de Berlin   Carmen Suite n  1   G  Bizet   Barenboim

Orquestra Filarmonica de Berlin Carmen Suite n 1 G Bizet Barenboim

The Carmen Suites are two suites of orchestral music drawn from the music of Georges Bizet's 1875 opera Carmen and compiled posthumously by his friend Ernest Guiraud. They adhere very closely to Bizet's orchestration. Guiraud also wrote the recitatives for Carmen, and compiled the second of the two suites from Bizet's L'Arlésienne incidental music. Each of the Carmen Suites contains six numbers. Both suites have been performed and recorded many times. Carmen Suite No. 1 Prélude: Act I, Prélude: "Fate" motive Aragonaise: Interlude (Entr'acte) before Act IV Intermezzo: Interlude (Entr'acte) before Act III Séguedille: Act I, Seguidilla (Carmen): Près des remparts de Séville Les Dragons d'Alcala: Interlude (Entr'acte) before Act II Les Toréadors: Theme from Prelude to Act I and Procession of the Toreadors from Act IV: Les voici! voici la quadrille des Toreros!. Suite No. 1 was published in c. 1882.[1] The Aragonaise was also used by Pablo de Sarasate in his Carmen Fantasy for violin and orchestra[2] and further used by Franz Waxman in his own Carmen Fantasie.

It is impossible to convey an incredible experience that this piece is - wind symphony, 11 trumpets placed around the audience, two French horns on the back of the hall, saxophone quartet and clarinet on the balcony, let alone a small marching band parading around the hall and across the stage, plus a stunning finale with firing of a shotgun!
