Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia - Pappano - Vogler

Under the baton of its principal conductor, Sir Antonio Pappano, the Orchestra dell'Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia has developed into one of the most renowned orchestras in the world. The longstanding ensemble from Rome can be be heard in the prestigious surroundings of the Semperoper playing »Isle of the Dead« by Rachmaninoff, inspired by the picture of the same name by Böcklin, and Sibelius' Symphony no. 2, whose popularity is partly owing to its brilliant finale. Tchaikovsky never wrote a concerto for violoncello. But his  »Rococo Variations«, interpreted here by Jan Vogler, almost go beyond that. They not only demand the greatest mastery on the part of the soloist, but also offer an abundance of opportunities for virtuosic displays of tone color.

The Artists:

Orchestra dell'Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia
Sir Antonio Pappano, conductor
Jan Vogler, violoncello

  • Sergei Rachmaninoff: »Isle of the Dead«. Symphonic poem for large orchestra op. 29
  • Peter Tchaikovsky: Variations on a Rococo Theme for Violoncello and Orchestra op. 33

Barocklounge: Barokksolistene

It's not just Scandinavians traveling to England who make a visit to the local pubs a mandatory part of their stay. These inns, also called taverns or alehouses, have served the population as a home away from home since the Middle Ages. In the late 17th century, when theaters were closed for religious reasons, many of these alehouses were turned into so-called music houses. Here, musicians gathered to play intimate concerts for the enthusiastic and thirsty audience. In this tradition, the award-winning Norwegian baroque ensemble Barokksolistene under the direction of the violinist Bjarte Eike invites listeners to this year's Baroque Lounge with music from the taverns and inns of Olde Englande.

Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia & Pappano

The Orchestra dell'Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia will devote its second Festival concert to Anton Bruckner's Eighth – the last symphony he completed. Bruckner sent the finished score to his friend, the conductor Hermann Levi, in 1887 with the words  »May it find mercy!«. But it found no mercy, and the disconsolate Bruckner began with its »restoration«, as he himself called it. The composition has long come to be considered as an epochal masterpiece, and in the hands of the accomplished conductor Sir Antonio Pappano, it unfolds all its impressive power. Pappano's success as music director at the Royal Opera House in London was a major factor in the conductor's rise to stardom, but he continues his work to preserve the musical traditions of Italy, his parents' native land, as is shown by his intensive collaboration with tonight's orchestra.

Cappella Sagittariana

From time immemorial, Italy has embodied art and culture. Important innovations in music also had their origins in this country, which, like a magnet, attracted young talented artists from all over the world. Heinrich Schütz even traveled to the south twice to study with Gabrieli and Monteverdi. The products of this fruitful exchange included the »Symphoniae sacrae«. Vincenzo Albrici, who often worked at the court in Dresden, took the opposite path. Together with Marco Giuseppe Peranda, who was also court music director in Dresden for a while, he was considered as one of the most important Italian masters in Germany. A program that is virtually tailor-made for the restored chapel in Dresden Castle and an ensemble that has cultivated baroque music in Dresden for 30 years.  

The Artists

Cappella Sagittariana DresdenNorbert Schuster, direction     

  • Heinrich Schütz: »Ego dormio, et cor meum vigilat« SWV 63 from »Cantiones sacrae«, »Es steh Gott auf« SWV 356 from »Symphoniae sacrae II«, »O Jesu süss« SWV 406 from »Symphoniae sacrae III«
  • Giovanni Gabrieli: Canzonas
  • Vincenzo Albrici: »Sive vivimus, sive morimur«. Sacred concerto for soprano, alto and bass, two violins and basso continuo

Song Recital Olga Peretyatko

Wherever Olga Peretyatko lets loose her brilliant vocal fireworks, she provokes storms of enthusiasm. The press has described the St. Petersburg singer as »the hottest tip on the international opera scene«, the »new classical superstar« and even simply as »perfect«. The career of this Russian soprano, who sang as a child in the choir at the Mariinsky Theater, has indeed been breathtaking, and there is barely any opera house in the world where she has not performed. Her appearance at short notice next to Rolando Villazón during the 2012 Pfingstfestspiele in Baden-Baden has become the stuff of legends. In addition to opera, this singer, with her radiant, versatile voice, also cultivates Lied singing with great passion and in-depth knowledge, as audience members in the Palais im Grossen Garten will be able to hear for themselves on this evening.

The Artists

Olga Peretyatko, soprano
Matthias Samuil, piano

  • Sergei Rachmaninoff »Spring Waters« op. 14/11,  »Lilacs« op. 21/5,  »Vocalise« op. 34/14

Dvořák Trio

The Czech Dvořák Trio, which will be presenting its chamber-music program amid the royal ambience of Albrechtsberg Palace, comes right from the heart of the North-South axis. The Crown Hall, with its sumptuous aura, formidable acoustics and outstanding view of the river Elbe, has often provided the atmospheric setting for unique concert experiences. During the voluntary exile of Prince Albert of Prussia, who moved to Saxony because of his morganatic marriage, the sound of domestic music-making may have often been heard despite the family's reclusive life. In this tradition, listeners can look forward to an impressive Festival concert in a fantastic setting, with the young ensemble presenting a colorful program ranging from Haydn and Smetana to the great Scandinavian composers Grieg and Sibelius.

The Artists

Dvořák Trio:
Jan Fišer, violin
Tomáš Jamník, violoncello

Piano Recital Boris Giltburg

At the 2013 »Queen Elisabeth Competition« in Brussels, the concentrated and sensitive playing of the Israeli pianist Boris Giltburg didn't just wow the jury, which chose him as the winner, but also won him the Audience Prize. The young artist, whom the »BBC Music Magazine« has described as »one of the most exciting young pianists of our time«, was already an acclaimed guest at the Moritzburg Festival. At Schloss Wackerbarth, he now invites the audience on a varied musical journey, going from the only piano sonata of the Norwegian composer Grieg – composed at the age of 22 – highly emotional miniatures by the Russian Rachmaninoff and two extremely virtuosic masterpieces by the Spaniard Granados, to a masquerade full of fantasy by Robert Schumann.

The Artist

Boris Giltburg, piano

  • Sergei Rachmaninoff: »Etudes-Tableaux« op. 39/ no. 3, 4, 5, 8 and 9

Sächsische Staatskapelle - Chung - Karthäuser

Beethoven‘s Symphony No. 2 comes across as rather traditional in its first few bars, but soon new and otherwise unknown sounds begin to ring out. At the same time it carries a prevailingly bright and optimistic mood, which in the golden radiance of the Semperoper will easily be transmitted to the audience. High spirits are elevated further by Mahler‘s Symphony No. 4, also known as the »Humoresque«, with which Myung-Whun continues his Mahler cycle in Dresden. The South Korean maestro is the first in the long history of the Staatskapelle to be granted the title of First Guest Conductor. For the vocal part in Mahler‘s Forth he has invited the young Belgian Sophie Karthäuser to perform at the Semperoper – one of the most beautiful soprano voices of our time.

The Artists

Ensemble Modern & Nagano

Bernstein's »A Quiet Place« does not follow in the tradition of his catchy early classics such as »West Side Story« or »Candide«. Rather, it is a hard-hitting study of a suburban family that is falling apart. Nonetheless, it is one of the most important operatic works of American modernity in the 20th century. Kent Nagano, who assisted at rehearsals for the »Vienna version« while studying with Bernstein and who is considered as a specialist for complex sound structures and very fine nuances, is now presenting the Dresden première of this fascinating work. His clear and intelligent approach finds a congenial counterpart in the architecture of Volkswagen's Gläserne Manufaktur, where the Swiss director Georges Delnon will stage the work.

Sound & Science: »creativity«

Creativity is behind the making of every art work or composition – but it nonetheless (or for precisely this reason?) remains a mystery with regard  to its true nature and the manner in which it is achieved. Despite numerous studies by music theorists, music psychologists, philosophers and informaticians, it still confronts scientists with unsolved puzzles. Now, an internationally established researcher – Martin Rohrmeier, Professor for Systematic Musicology and Musical Cognition – has been appointed at the TU Dresden who is investigating precisely this essence of creativity. As part of »Sound & Science«, he will enter into a fascinating dialogue with the violinist Florian Mayer on such questions as »What is musical creativity?« or »Can computers be musically creative?«.

Auryn Quartet

In the more than 30 years of its existence, the Auryn Quartet has played almost the entire string quartet repertoire and become one of  the leading ensembles in the international chamber music scene. This colorful concert in the Palais im Großen Garten promises to offer some musical delicacies, bringing together one of the quartets written in Paris at the age of 16 by the Basque composer Arriaga, Ravel's only piece for this instrumental combination, and one of the best-known and most personal works in the genre, composed by the Finn Sibelius. And no better setting can be imagined for this feast of chamber music than the Palais, built at the end of the 17th century for the summer pleasures of the Saxon court.

Piano Recital Olli Mustonen

Finland does not owe its importance to military or economic power, but above all to culture. And almost no one represents the lively musical scene in »the land of a thousand lakes« more convincingly than the Helsinki-born Olli Mustonen with his unmatched artistic range. The program he presents in his recital is just as versatile and dynamic as the Finnish pianist, conductor and composer himself. Among other things, he will play six of Frédéric Chopin's famous Mazurkas, of which Robert Schumann once said: »If the powerful, autocratic monarch of the north (Tsar Nicholas I) knew what a dangerous enemy menaced him in Chopin's works, in the simple tunes of his Mazurkas, he would ban this music. Chopin's works are cannon buried under flowers.«  

The Artist

  • Frédéric Chopin: Mazurka in A Minor op. 59/1, Mazurka in A-flat Major op. 59/2, Mazurka in F-sharp Minor op. 59/3, Mazurka in B Major op. 56/1, Mazurka in C Major op 56/2, Mazurka in C Minor op. 56/3

Dresden's close ties with Italy are clearly discernible not only in its historical architecture, but also in its musical and artistic treasures. In a continuation of this cultural connection, the Venice Baroque Orchestra, founded by the baroque specialist and harpsichordist Andrea Marcon, already traveled to the so-called »Florence on the Elbe« for a guest performance back in 1997. Then a pioneer in this sector, the ensemble is today one of the leading formations to specialize in playing music on authentic instruments, and has produced several trailblazing projects. This concert, performed together with the wonderful Canadian soprano Karina Gauvin, is completely devoted to the famous son of the orchestra's native city – Vivaldi – who also greatly influenced musical culture in Dresden during his lifetime.

A young musician from Lithuania who has set out to free his instrument from its dusty image as a folk-music mainstay shows what the accordion is capable of. With great virtuosity and imagination, Martynas, who studied at the renowned Royal Academy of Music in London, disregards all the conventional boundaries of the accordion as he pursues his main aim of inspiring a young audience with his music. In 2010, he won the Lithuanian version of »America’s Got Talent«, and his debut album quickly climbed to the top of the British classical music charts.  At this concert in the courtyard of the building complex Deutsche Werkstätten Hellerau, Martynas, who swaps effortlessly between different styles and genres, will be accompanied by the Sinchronic string quartet. The audience can look forward to an exciting Festival experience with works by Bach, Brahms, Vivaldi and Piazzolla – and even Lady Gaga.

The Handel Festival Orchestra, consisting of musicians from the Halle Opera House, also draws on the long tradition of preserving and cultivating Handel's music in that city. Together with this special ensemble playing on historical instruments, the Kreuzchor will be presenting not only Handel's »Utrecht Te Deum«, written as a commission for the English royal court, and the impressive Te Deum in D Major by Marc-Antoine Charpentier, but also one of the much too infrequently performed sacred works of Vivaldi.

Since the Bamberg Symphony was founded in 1946, it has grown into a top orchestra of world class. The ensemble is famous for its characteristic dark, rounded and radiant sound. The Bamberg Symphony has worked together closely with the conductor Christoph Eschenbach since 1977 – in April 2014, the musicians celebrated the milestone of 150 performances together. In this dream combination, Ravel's farewell to the fin de siècle, »La Valse«, and Bartók's intense late work for orchestra promise exceptional listening pleasure. The concert centers around the percussion concerto »Frozen in Time«, written specially for Martin Grubinger, who will let loose a veritable musical fireworks display in the Semperoper.

Final Concert: Mariza

The culmination of this year's Festival features Portugal's most charismatic and successful export! Mariza was born in Mozambique in East Africa. At the age of three, she moved to Portugal, her father's native country. She grew up in the historical Lisbon district of Mouraria, the cradle of fado, for which this incomparable singer developed a passion early on in life. With her impressive stage presence, the enormous expressive power of her gestures and facial movements, and the unparalleled intensity of her voice, the artist, selected three times by the BBC as the »Best European Artist«, is now considered the queen of this genre. Her breathtaking series of triumphs in internationally famous concert halls will now continue in Dresden's Albertinum as well.
