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.

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

Leonidas Leonardi was a pupil of Maurice Ravel. Maurice Ravel's orchestration for Mussorgsky's "Pictures at an Exhibition" was a tremendous success back in 1923. W. Bessel & Co. Paris, publishers of Mussorgsky's music, wanted something to strike back and so they approached a precoscious 21-years-old pianist named Leonidas Leonardi who was studying orchestration with Maurice Ravel himself at that time. Leonidas Leonardi obliged to orchestrate the work. He dedicated his orchestration to Igor Stravinsky, and conducted the premiere himself with the Lamoureux Orchestra in Paris on 15 June 1924. The US Premiere took place when the New York Symphony Orchestra performed it on 4 December 1924 under the baton of Walter Damrosch. In spite of that, the Leonardi version has remained an obscurity eversince, and NO recording exists for it! http://www.lucksmusic.com/catdetailview_symph.asp?CatalogNo=08431 http://i168.photobucket.com/albums/u197/Aggelos_05/Leonardi.jpg http://i168.photobucket.com/albums/u197/Aggelos_05/Leonardi-1_zps9233a5ee.jpg Only conductor Leonard Slatkin "revived" Leonidas Leonardi in the early '90s, and he used in his first compilation (of "Pictures at an Exhibition") an excerpt of Leonardi's orchestration (Promenade III & Tuileres). MUST WATCH VIDEOS!! LEONIDAS LEONARDI FEATURED!!!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MOLpBXmPYks As far as I am concerned, Leonidas Leonardi has the following Orchestral Transcriptions : -J.S.

Mendelssohn: String Symphony No. 9 (Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, Kurt Masur)

Mendelssohn: String Symphony No. 9 (Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, Kurt Masur)

One of the second group of six string symphonies written by the fourteen year old budding genius, the Sinfonia No. 9 in C, is brilliant and in every respect an early symphony. Its immediate predecessor, the Sinfonia No. 8 in D, combines Mendelssohn's nascent originality with a healthy leavening of the influence of Mozart. Rather than paying further tribute to Mozart, Mendelssohn opens this work in Haydn-esque fashion, with a great ponderous introduction which then bursts into a marvelous, animated first theme. It quickly becomes something Haydn could never have written, with much greater harmonic and rhythmic range and technical sophistications including a divided part for the violas and a sudden shift to a marvelously effective fugal passage at the seam between the exposition and development sections of the first movement. It leaps a generation beyond Haydn and is brilliant far beyond anything of Mozart's at the same age. The piece also features a wondrous, pensive andante second movement and a sparkling, thoroughly Mendelssohnian scherzo. The allegro vivace with which the work concludes once again features brilliant counterpoint, delightful wit, and thoroughly original melodic lines. The work is significant as part of a set of thirteen early string symphonies which the composer wrote, partly as exercises and partly as an effort to spread his wings in the symphonic form. He had crafted the first six of these as early as 1821 - when he was all of twelve years of age - and at first they were purposefully patterned after the Empfindsamkeit style of works by C.P.E. Bach. This was at the direction of his first music tutor, Carl Freidrich Zelter. While the first six were both derivative and imitative, the second group, including this work, show signs of Mendelssohn kicking over the rote mimicry in favor of a more modern and personal style. That the youthful work seems influenced by Haydn in no way dims its brilliance. I. Grave - Allegro (0:00) II. Andante (10:34) III. Scherzo - Trio piu lento "La Suisse" (17:12) IV. Allegro vivace (20:41) ****** If you like this video subscribe to my channel. There are many more videos like this one lovingly prepared and edited by myself for your enjoyment!

Wagner Concert in Leipzig 1988 DDR 3 - Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg ('Wach Auf' and Finale)

Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra. Conducted by Kurt Masur 1988 Fernsehen der DDR Final part of the Leipzig Wagner concert features the greatest 'Wach auf!' I have ever heard, the Rundfunkchor are simply magnificent here and provide a thrilling conclusion to what was a supremely satisfying concert in the GDR. The writer and composer Richard Wagner (1813 - 1883) was born in the city of Leipzig in Saxony. The city of his birth paid tribute to one of its most famous sons in 1988, then part of the German Democratic Republic, with an all Wagner concert from the New Gewandhaus concert hall, rebuilt by the GDR government and opened in in 1981. Kurt Masur conducts, with soprano Karan Armstrong and bass-baritone Theo Adam singing excerpts from Tristan und Isolde and Meistersinger, with equally stunning contributions from the Leipzig Radio Choir.

Blomstedt also lived in Finland during his youth. He won the Koussevitzky Conducting Prize in 1953 and the Salzburg Conducting Competition in 1955. Blomstedt is most noted for his performances of German and Austrian composers, such as Beethoven, Felix Mendelssohn, Franz Schubert, Anton Bruckner and Richard Strauss, and also as a champion of Scandinavian composers, such as Edvard Grieg, Franz Berwald, Jean Sibelius and Carl Nielsen. A devout Seventh-day Adventist, Blomstedt does not rehearse on Friday nights or Saturdays, the Sabbath in Seventh-day Adventism. He does, however, conduct concerts, since he considers actual performances to be an expression of his religious devotion rather than work. He has been Music Director or Principal Conductor of the Norrköping Symphony Orchestra (1954–1962), Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra (1962–1968), Danish Radio Symphony (1967–1977) and Swedish Radio Symphony (1977–1982). From 1975-1985, he served as chief conductor of the Dresdner Staatskapelle, in the process making many well-regarded recordings, including works of Richard Strauss and the complete Beethoven and Schubert symphonies, and leading the orchestra on international tours. Blomstedt was music director of the San Francisco Symphony from 1985 to 1995. He led the orchestra on regular tours of Europe and Asia, and made numerous prize-winning recordings for London/Decca, winning two Grammy Awards, a Gramophone Award and a Grand Prix du Disque, as well as awards from Belgium, Germany and Japan. After leaving San Francisco full-time, Blomstedt held principal conductorships with the North German Radio Symphony (1996–1998) and Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra (1998–2005). Blomstedt is currently Conductor Laureate of the San Francisco Symphony and Honorary Conductor of the Bamberg Symphony, Danish National Symphony Orchestra, NHK Symphony, Swedish Radio Symphony and Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Herbert_Blomstedt
