Beethoven - Overture to "Egmont", Op. 84 (Kurt Masur, Gewandhausorchester Leipzig)

From the Church of St. Nicolai, Leipzig, Germany (Starts at 1:30) 20 Years Peaceful Revolution - Leipzig commemorates the 9th of October 1989 Gewandhausorchester Leipzig Conductor: Kurt Masur Ludwig van Beethoven - “Egmont” Overture, Op. 84 Watch the full concert here: https://goo.gl/C7a9QS 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.

Jessye Norman - I only do them with conducters who really understand what's happening with them. I don't want to say this condescendingly, but so many regional orchestras feel that if I show up, we're sound like Sergiu Celibidache in Munich. But that's not quite the way it works. There was one bright, lovely man who was conducting 'Four Last Songs' for the first time, and he had a vision the night before that it would be slower. And I said, "I really appreciate that you're having an artistic moment, but it's marked Allegretto" How long will you continue to sing? J.N. - As long as it make sense. Jessye Norman Interview to "Gramophone" IX.2010, p.39 "Strauss' Four Last Songs. For the profundity that is achieved not by complexity but by clarity and simplicity. For the purity of the sentiment about death and parting and loss. For the long melodic line spinning out and the female voice soaring and soaring. For the repose and composure and gracefulness and the intense beauty of the soaring. For the ways one is drawn into the tremendous arc of heartbreak. The composer drops all masks and, at the age of eighty-two, stands before you naked. And you dissolve. Philip Roth Strauss' Vier letzte Lieder is a set of four songs for soprano and orchestra, composed between 1946 and 1948. The texts for the songs are "Im Abendrot" by Joseph von Eichendorff, followed by three texts by Hermann Hesse, "Frühling," "Beim Schlafengehen," and "September." For many, these songs are regarded as the pinnacle of Strauss' output as a composer of lieder. For the most part, Strauss had composed his earlier lieder with piano accompaniment and refrained from writing orchestral songs, like those Gustav Mahler composed earlier in the century. In terms of style, the music itself continues in the idiom that Strauss used for his later operas, especially Capriccio. The melodies are long and sinuous, with subtle, chromatic harmonies which support nuances in the text. For one, "Im Abendrot," Strauss even quotes from Tod und Verklärung when the narrator of the poem expresses intimations of death. In all the settings of the Vier letzte Lieder, Strauss composed subtle music. Richard Strauss' extraordinarily beautiful Vier letzte Lieder (Four Last Songs) (1948) for voice and orchestra are among the last music the composer ever wrote. Actually, Strauss did not intend to place the songs into this grouping in which they are best known. The title "Four Last Songs" was provided posthumously by Strauss's friend Ernst Roth, who published the four songs as a single unit after Strauss's death. Three of the settings are on texts by Hermann Hesse; the last in the group, Im Abendrot (At Dusk), is a "separate" setting of a poem by Joseph Eichendorff. (Strauss also left behind another unfinished Hesse setting, Nacht.) Still, given the themes of the Hesse songs - "Frühling" (Spring)," "September," and "Beim Schlafengehen" (Time to Sleep) - the inclusion of the Eichendorff song seems a natural extension of and appropriate end to the cycle. The Four Last Songs are virtually indistinguishable in technique and musical language from the fine songs Strauss wrote 50 years earlier. They are, in short, rich and fully Romantic, expressive in feeling and symphonic in sound. As such, they might well be thought of as the final masterpieces of the line of German Romantic Lieder that began with Beethoven's An die ferne Geliebter. The final words of Im Abendrot are "Is this really Death?" Here, Strauss inserts the famous yearning theme from his own Death and Transfiguration, providing what can only be regarded as a most fitting epitaph to his own life and work. Towards the end of "Im Abendrot", exactly as the soprano's final intonation of "der Tod" (death) ceases, Strauss musically quotes his own tone poem Death and Transfiguration, written 60 years earlier. As in that piece, the quoted six-note phrase (known as the "transfiguration theme") symbolizes the fulfillment of the soul into death. Strauss died in September 1949. The premiere was given posthumously at the Royal Albert Hall in London on 22 May 1950 by soprano Kirsten Flagstad and the Philharmonia Orchestra, conducted by Wilhelm Furtwängler.

Claude Debussy - La Mer

Claude Debussy - La Mer

"La Mer" L.109, (The Sea), is an orchestral composition by Claude Debussy. It was started in 1903 in France and completed in 1905 on the English Channel coast in Eastbourne. The premiere was given by the Lamoureux Orchestra under the direction of Camille Chevillard on 15 October 1905 in Paris. "La Mer" is a composition of huge suggestion and subtlety in its rich depiction of the ocean, which combines unusual orchestration with daring impressionistic harmonies. The work has proven very influential, and its use of sensuous tonal colours and its orchestration methods have influenced many later film scores. While the structure of the work places it outside of both absolute music and programme music as those terms were understood in the early 20th century, it obviously uses descriptive devices to suggest wind, waves and the ambience of the sea. But structuring a piece around a nature subject without any literary or human element to it - neither people, nor mythology, nor ships are suggested in the piece - also was highly unusual at the time. Debussy called his work "three symphonic sketches," avoiding the loaded term symphony; yet the work is sometimes called a symphony; it consists of two powerful outer movements framing a lighter, faster piece which acts as a type of scherzo. "La Mer" is divided inot three movements: 1. "De l'aube à midi sur la mer" (from dawn to midday on the sea); 2. "Jeux de vagues" (Play of the Waves); 3. "Dialogue du vent et de la mer" (Dialogue of the wind and the sea). Conductor: Vladimir Ashkenazy & Cleveland Orchestra

Richard Strauss (1864-1949) From Vier Letzte Lieder (Four Last Songs): Im Abendrot (At Sunset) Jessye Norman, soprano Orchestre de la Suisse romande conducted by Wolfgang Sawallisch Recorded in 1979 Text (Joseph von Eichendorff): We have through sorrow and joy gone hand in hand; From our wanderings, let's now rest in this quiet land. Around us, the valleys bow as the sun goes down. Two larks soar upwards dreamily into the light air. Come close, and let them fly. Soon it will be time for sleep. Let's not lose our way in this solitude. O vast, tranquil peace, so deep in the evening's glow! How weary we are of wandering--- Is this perhaps death? Wir sind durch Not und Freude gegangen Hand in Hand; vom Wandern ruhen wir nun überm stillen Land. Rings sich die Täler neigen, es dunkelt schon die Luft. Zwei Lerchen nur noch steigen nachträumend in den Duft. Tritt her und laß sie schwirren, bald ist es Schlafenszeit. Daß wir uns nicht verirren in dieser Einsamkeit. O weiter, stiller Friede! So tief im Abendrot. Wie sind wir wandermüde-- Ist dies etwa der Tod?

Richard Strauß: Vier letzte Lieder

Richard Strauß: Vier letzte Lieder

Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks; Ltg. Mariss Jansons Anja Harteros, Sopran Zu Strauß' "Vier letzte Lieder": Die Vier letzten Lieder, AV 150 von Richard Strauss nach Gedichten von Hermann Hesse und Joseph von Eichendorff entstanden 1948 in der Schweiz, wohin Strauss mit seiner Frau nach Kriegsende gezogen war. Der Titel stammt nicht vom Komponisten, sie waren auch nicht als abgeschlossener Zyklus gedacht. Sie dokumentieren vielmehr eine kontinuierliche, dynamische Auseinandersetzung mit den Themen Tod und Abschied, auch vor dem Hintergrund des vergangenen Krieges und in Gewärtigung des eigenen, baldigen Todes. Strauss hatte in dieser Zeit zufällig Hermann Hesse in einem Schweizer Hotel kennengelernt. Hesse war die Begegnung nicht angenehm, auch weil ihm Strauss' "rauschender" Stil nicht zusagte. Zu den "Vier letzten Liedern" sagte Hesse später, sie erschienen ihm "wie alle Strauss-Musik: virtuos, raffiniert, voll handwerklicher Schönheit, aber ohne Zentrum, nur Selbstzweck." In der ersten gedruckten Ausgabe, die postum 1950 bei Boosey & Hawkes erschien, wurde auf Anleitung des Verlagsleiters Ernst Roth, mit dem Strauss befreundet war, eine von der Chronologie der Entstehung abweichende Reihenfolge gewählt, die bis heute -auch im Konzertgebrauch- beibehalten wurde: 1. Frühling (Abschlussdatum: Pontresina, 13. Juli 1948; Text: Hermann Hesse, April 1899) 2. September (Abschlussdatum: Montreux, 20. September 1948; Text: Hermann Hesse, 23. September 1927) 3. Beim Schlafengehen (Abschlussdatum: Pontresina, 4. August 1948; Text: Hermann Hesse, Juli 1911) 4. Im Abendrot (Abschlussdatum: Montreux, 6. Mai 1948; Text: Joseph von Eichendorff) Es war auch Roth, der der Ausgabe den Titel "Vier letzte Lieder" gab. Die Uraufführung der vier Lieder fand am 22. Mai 1950 in London statt; die Interpreten waren Kirsten Flagstad und das Philharmonia Orchestra unter Leitung von Wilhelm Furtwängler. Weiterlesen: http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vier_letzte_Lieder
