Festival Night

The Festival Night started as an experiment in 2014. On the eve of the official opening, the shopping precinct »QF Quartier an der Frauenkirche« was transformed into an extraordinary stage to celebrate the new Festival season together with the citizens of Dresden and guests to the city. In 2015, Festival artists and musicians from Dresden will once more present a varied program to heighten the public’s anticipation of the forthcoming concerts - and musical encounters between fire and ice - amid theamid the elegant architecture of the Quartier. The second Festival Night invites you to find out more about the temperaments of North and South on a multifaceted musical journey in the vibrant atmosphere of the QF Quartier an der Frauenkirche.

Opening gala

The opening gala will be a première in its own right, because on this evening the Dresden Music Festival will metamorphose the Messe Dresden in two ways at once: by opening a new concert venue for the music center of Dresden  where audiences can encounter top-quality classical music, and by creating a charismatic space that will encourage the public to participate in celebrating this special occasion in completely new ways. The program of the gala also connects these two elements: the host, Jan Vogler, has asked the Dresden Festival Orchestra, along with artists such as the glamorous „Queen of Coloratura“ Simone Kermes and the spectacular street dancer Lil Buck, to join him on stage. And when, in the second part, the »Community Dance« movement makes an appearance and pupils from Dresden take to the dance floor with passionate intensity, this evening will fulfil its promise of being a glittering “gala for everybody” in impressive manner.

The Artists:

Dresden Festival Orchestra
Ivor Bolton, conductor
Simone Kermes, soprano
Lil Buck, dancer
Monica Delgadillo Aguilar, choreografer
Pupils from Dresden schools

True Northern fire can be expected from the Helsinki Baroque Orchestra and its artistic director Aapo Häkkinen. The Finnish ensemble has already taken the whole of Europe by storm with its fresh and innovative style, with the »Sunday Times« describing it as one of the best groups around for historical informed performance. But Russia, with its still young early music scene, has also bred exciting artists: the up-and-coming soprano Julia Lezhneva is causing a sensation as a virtuosic interpreter of this repertoire. Her lean, distinct style of singing, coupled with technical perfection, opens up new tonal dimensions to the exquisite selection of vocal works by Händel and to Mozart‘s ever-popular solo motet »Exsultate, jubilate«. A Nordic baroque fireworks display!

During this evening at the Semperoper, the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra under its charismatic principal conductor Daniel Harding will build a tuneful bridge between one of the most beautiful violin concertos, composed by the Finn Jean Sibelius on the threshold of modernity, and an early masterpiece by the highly individual French composer Hector Berlioz. In powerful tones, the  »Symphonie fantastique« describes the artist‘s love for a woman who arouses in him the sweetest desire and the darkest despair. Soloist of the evening is the Danish-Israeli violinist Nikolaj Znaider, one of the leading and most versatile instrumentalists of his generation.

Workshop Concert

The workshop concerts by the Dresden Festival Orchestra offer an exciting look behind the scenes of historically informed performance and have now become an established part of the Festival's program. This year, the focus is on compositions by Ludwig van Beethoven and Robert Schumann. From his youth, Schumann was fascinated by Beethoven's works. He worshipped the great composer, whom he regarded as a role model for his own creative work. As a foretaste of the concert on May 17 at the Semperoper, the audience in the workshop at the Palais im Großen Garten can explore this connection by means of musical examples. The impressions thus gained will be deepened in vivid and entertaining hosted discussions with the musicians.

This year‘s traditional Festival open air concert »Dresden sings and makes music« is being presented exclusively by young artists. In front of the unique setting of the Hofkirche, Dresden Castle and Brühl‘s Terrace, numerous renowned youth choirs will invite the audience to sing along. The singers will be accompanied by the Young Symphonic Orchestra des Sächsischen Landesgymnasiums für Musik which celebrates its 50th year of performing in 2015. In addition to a diverse program themed »Fire Ice«, the audience will also be treated to a composition especially comissioned for this very night. With so much youthful fire, the musical spark will no doubt quickly enthuse the city of Dresden and its guests gathered in front of Brühl‘s Terrace.

Dresden Festival Orchestra - Bolton - Faust

Since the Dresden Festival Orchestra was founded, it has played its way into the hearts of the public. Now in its fourth year as a top ensemble for historical performance practice, it will again deliver scintillating performances. On Mendelssohn's trip to England and Scotland, he visited the barren Hebridean island of Staffa. Here, he was inspired to write the concert overture that opens this program in the Semperoper. Schumann's Symphony no. 2 is closely associated with Dresden, as the work was written here after the composer moved to the Elbe in 1844. The concert pivots around Beethoven's violin concerto, played by the exceptional violinist Isabelle Faust, who already made ahuge impression at the 2010 Festival with her virtuosic combination of natural musicality and profound knowledge of the repertoire.

The Artists:

Dresden Festival Orchestra
Ivor Bolton, conductor

One of the most interesting Skandinavian composers of our time is Tobias Broström, born in Sweden in 1978. Die world premiere of his concerto for two percussionists and orchestra is at the center of the Dresdner Philharmonie's Nordic program, which will include Sibelius‘ famous hymn for freedom »Finlandia« as well as his Symphony No. 2., the drafts for which were formed in 1901 in Italy. The heroic, optimistic tone obviously struck a chord with the Finnish audience in the middle of the Russian oppression. It became one the most popular and most played symphonies by Sibelius. The Orchestra dell‘Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia will present another interpretation of this work on May 29.

The »Bohème 2020« brings together young international artists from different disciplines in Dresden. Each of the young participants possesses his or her individual artistic background and cultural imprint, leading to a rich creative exchange. It will be exciting to see and hear what facets arise from this variety and what joint modes of expression the artists will find at the 2015 Festival. This evening at the award-winning new building of the Biological Institute will provide a first taste of their efforts. The main focus of the artists' engagement will be »madness«. Throughout the centuries, the great fascination of this phenomenon can be traced in music, literature and art - and it will also certainly not fail to make an impact at the »Bohème 2020«.

Dover Quartet

Nowhere else in the world are so many exceptional musical talents born as at the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia. It is thus no wonder that the members of the young Dover Quartet also received their training at this venerable seat of learning. A first prize at the Banff International String Quartet Competition in Canada set a seal on their meteoric conquest of concert halls across the world. The press has acclaimed the youthful enthusiasm and virtuosity of this ensemble – named after the work »Dover Beach« by the famous Curtis alumnus Samuel Barber – but also  the astonishing maturity of its interpretations. So listeners can expect great things when it performs Mozart’s »Hoffmeister Quartet«, Saariaho’s »Terra Memoria« – premiered in Carnegie Hall in 2007 – and Grieg’s only completed work in this genre at the Palais im Großen Garten.

Al Ayre Español & Andueza

Although Spanish baroque music enjoyed immense popularity during its era, for a long time it fell into virtual oblivion. Musicians such as Jodi Savall and the ensemble to be heard tonight, Al Ayre Español, founded in 1988 by Eduardo López Banzo, have devoted themselves to this repertoire in order to restore it to its rightful place on the concert platform with vibrant and historically informed performances. This group from Spain, which takes its name from a fugue for guitar by the Aragonese composer Gaspar Sanz, is now internationally one of the most respected old music ensembles. Al Ayre Español also engages intensively with the other great European baroque composers, so that this evening, which also features the dynamic soprano Raquel Andueza, will become a colorful journey through the widely diversified musical culture of the epoch.

In the Watzke Ballroom, they will combine Danish folk music and the String Quartet No. 1 by their compatriot Carl Nielsen, born 150 years ago and also strongly rooted in folk music, with the composition »The Dreams and Prayers of Isaak the Blind« by the Argentinean Osvaldo Golijov. The Nordic string players will receive top-flight assistance from David Orlowsky, one of the most versatile clarinettists of his generation.

The long and deep musical friendship between Hélène Grimaud and Jan Vogler has led to acclaimed concerts across the world and successful joint CD productions. They first stood together on the concert platform in Dresden in May 2005 – during a concert in Volkswagen's Gläserne Manufaktur. Ten years after this musical première on the Elbe, the two passionate and virtuosic instrumentalists can now be experienced in the Semperoper. With the two compositions by Shostakovich and Debussy, the program features what are arguably the most beautiful duo sonatas from the first half of the 20th century, along with works by the two Romantic composers – and friends – Schumann and Brahms.

Dresdner Kammerchor

Rossini's »Petite Messe Solennelle« is one of the great Italian operatic composer's most important pieces. When in his early 70s, Rossini lived a secluded life in a villa near Paris, writing only a few occasional works, including this small, solemn mass for a married couple he was friends with. Composed for the consecration of their private chapel, it is unusually scored for voices, two pianos and harmonium. Rossini's tongue-in-cheek attitude to his own composition is evident not only from the title, but also in the dedication to »Good God«: »Little science, a little heart, that is all. So may You be blessed, and grant me Paradise.« This rarely heard composition will now reveal a paradise of sound in the Frauenkirche, performed in the original instrumentation with the Dresden Chamber Choir under Hans-Christoph Rademann.

In this guest performance, the Festival welcomes Norwegian trumpeter Arve Henriksen, one of the most innovative and renowned musicians of the rich Scandinavian jazz scene. His constant and almost unprecedented exploration of his instrument's tonal spectrum, his permanent rediscovery of himself and his music, and his refusal to be pigeon-holed have led to a completely individual sound whose unique character has been inspired to a large degree by Japanese music. In the Kleiner Schlosshof, Henriksen joins three compatriots from the vocal ensemble Trio Mediæval, whose trademark is the interpretation of homophonic and specially arranged polyphonic music of the Middle Ages. Listeners can look forward to a fascinating musical world in which the musicians create highly unusual connections between jazz and ancient music.

Serenade on the Green

What could be a better setting for a summer serenade than idyllic Pillnitz Castle, which Augustus II the Strong gave to his mistress Anna Constantia of Cosel as a present and where he used to hold his baroque feasts? That's why, every year, the Kreuzchor gathers under a blue sky in the park beside the Riverside Palace to offer the Festival’s audience a great variety of classical works, well-known folk songs and contemporary arrangements. This beautiful tradition will be continued again this year: On Whitsunday, the renowned Kreuzchor, now almost 800 years old, invites the audience to come outside and be enchanted by the bell-like boys' voices.

The principal conductors of the venerable Philadelphia Orchestra have included such great names as Stokowski, Muti and Sawallisch. But according to an enthusiastic »New York Times«, the orchestra, renowned for its ardent string sound and the homogenous opulence of its tone, has »never sounded better« than under its current music director, Yannick Nézet-Séguin. The Dresden Music Festival is therefore particularly delighted to welcome this ensemble from the pulsating musical city of Philadelphia as the 2015 Orchestra in Residence. Along with Tchaikovsky's Symphony no. 5 and a work by the hip American composer Nico Muhly, it will perform Grieg's piano concerto, whose première in Copenhagen in 1869 gave the Norwegian composer his breakthrough. Soloist is Jan Lisiecki, »a pianist who makes every note count« (»New York Times«).

Kuusisto himself, who was the first Finn to ever win the national »Sibelius Violin Competition«, has already long made a name for himself on international concert stages with his unconventional interpretations. He likes to go beyond conventional listening and viewing habits, and this concert, too, will make connections between Finnish folk music and the country's greatest composer – Jean Sibelius -, dance and music, ballet and flamenco.

Pekka Kuusisto, violin
Heini Kärkkäinen, piano
Minna Tervamäki, dance (ballet)
Kaari Martin, dance (flamenco)
Mikko Linnavuori, lighting

Anyone who at the thought of the mandolin imagines romantic serenades in Venice or smoky bluegrass bands will experience a musical surprise with Avi Avital. The young musician is a true virtuoso of this stringed instrument, often condescendingly considered as the  »little sister« of the guitar. With a breathtaking technique and sensitive playing, he combines such different genres as klezmer, baroque music and contemporary sounds.  »Between Worlds« is world music in the best sense of the term, a program that artistically brings together works of different styles, epochs and continents. Avi Avital takes the listener on a musical journey from Piazzolla and Bartók to baroque fantasies, Yiddish melodies and Romanian dances. Such renowned fellow musicians as the French jazz accordionist Richard Galliano and the Israeli clarinettist Giora Feidman will be playing alongside him as special guests at this morning concert.

Children's Concert: »In the Land of the Trolls and Fairies«

Fairies and trolls are bound to feel at home on the Dresden Heath, which is where this year's children's concert at the Festival will take its listeners. It would not be at all surprising if these Nordic spirits were to peek out from behind the stage of the Konzertplatz am Weissen Hirsch during this Whit Monday family concert. But they are at any rate very much present in the fairy tales from Sweden and Norway that listeners both large and small can look forward to this morning. These captivating tales from the land of trolls and fairies will be given a musical touch by the three cheerful singers of the Trio Mediæval, who will bring the children old songs from the Far North, along with folk instruments from Scandinavia.

The Artists

Anna Maria Friman, vocals, Hardanger fiddle

Andreas Brantelid & Christian Ihle Hadland

Festival visitors will once more encounter exciting new talents in Schloss Wackerbarth at this performance by the Norwegian pianist Christian Ihle Hadland and the Swedish-Danish cellist Andreas Brantelid. These two musicians, highly acclaimed and already the recipients of numerous awards, represent the up-and-coming Scandinavian music scene, which here again shows what rich potential it can draw on. The program to be performed by the two artists is equally fascinating, featuring works by the Danish composer Peder Gram and the Australian composer Percy Grainger that are seldom heard in Germany. The second part of the concert is devoted entirely to Edvard Grieg, whose beautifully fragile tonal language could barely meet with better interpreters than this evening's artists.

The Artists

Andreas Brantelid, violoncello
Christian Ihle Hadland, piano

  • Peder Gram: Sonata for Violoncello and Piano op. 14
  • Percy Grainger: »La Scandinavie« for violoncello and piano
  • Edvard Grieg: Intermezzo in A Minor for Violoncello and Piano, 2nd movement from the Sonata for Violin and Piano no. 3 in C Minor op. 45 (in the version for violoncello), Sonata for Violoncello and Piano in A Minor op. 36

For this performance in the German capital, Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin and the musicians have selected Shostakovich's imposing violin concerto and Rachmaninoff's last symphony, premiered in 1936 by the Philadelphia Orchestra under Leopold Stokowski, along with a composition by the young American composer Nico Muhly.

»For Theodorakis' 90th birthday« Choir concert with movie screening

Vocal Concert Dresden

In 1983, the Dresden Music festival commissioned Mikis Theodorakis to write »Liturgy No. 2, dedicated to the children killed in war« for a cappella choir, which was premiered at that year's Festival. In 2015, the composer, who has also become legendary as a passionate champion of justice, will turn 90 – a good reason to allow listeners in Dresden to hear this work and its message once more. The »Liturgy« is based on fourteen poems, mostly written by Tasos Livaditis, which are set to music by Theodorakis in masterly fashion. For this nighttime musical church service, which will also feature film clips from the biopic »Mikis Theodorakis – Composer«, the Vocal Concert Dresden has chosen just the right venue: the Martin-Luther-Kirche, built in 1887, in Dresden's Neustadt (New Town).

The Artists

Piano Recital for Peter Rösel's 70th birthday

The Music Festival congratulates Peter Rösel on his 70th birthday! The Palais im Grossen Garten will provide an atmospheric setting for the birthday concert of this Dresden artist, who studied at the Moscow Conservatory in the 1960s and from there (as the first German laureate of the »International Tchaikovsky Competition« and the competition for piano in Montreal) started an international career that has taken him to musical hubs on all the continents. In 2011, the pianist finished performing a four-year cycle of all Ludwig van Beethoven’s sonatas in Japan, Germany and Switzerland. That composer’s Sonata No. 32 is also part of tonight’s program, flanked by two more works of the same genre by Haydn and Schubert.   

The Artist

Peter Rösel, piano

  • Joseph Haydn: Piano Sonata in E-flat Major Hob. XVI: 52
  • Ludwig van Beethoven: Piano Sonata No. 32 in C Minor op. 111

Ever since the French Quatuor Ebène entered the stage, gaining a place among the most famous string quartets, a fresh breeze has swept the chamber music scene. Its individual and characteristic style has unleashed storms of enthusiasm.  The ensemble, which combines musical passion with virtuosity in its unbiased approach to the repertoire, has been praised by »The New York Times« as »a string quartet that can effortlessly transform into a jazz band«. Alongside Haydn and Beethoven, the composers who formatively marked this genre, the musicians will also be bringing along »Ainsi la Nuit«, a work by the great French modern master Henri Dutilleux. A colorful program with which the spirited quartet is sure to win over the audience.

Trio Cayao

Fiery tangos are not at home just in hot climes, but also in cool Finland. The Finnish version sounds similar to its Argentine counterpart, except for the fact that in the North melancholy minor keys are preferred. Tango came to Finland at the start of the 20th century, after European immigrants to South America discovered it as an expression of their homesickness. Wistful tango music was also both an outlet and a comfort to Finns under Russian and Swedish rule. The Trio Cayao has devoted itself to the world of the Finnish and Argentine tango. The founder of the young ensemble is the Finnish pianist Jarkko Riihimäki, who has joined with the versatile young violinist from Germany, Iskandar Widjaja, and the double bassist Ander Perrino from Spain for this passionate North-South journey.

The Artists

Trio Cayao:
Iskandar Widjaja, violin
Ander Perrino, double bass
Jarkko Riihimäki, piano

  • Carlos Gardel: »El día que me quieras«
  • Taivo Kärki: »Tähdet meren yllä«

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

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.

The Artists

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.

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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?«.

Prof. Martin Rohrmeier, musicologist, philosopher, mathematician
Florian Mayer, violin

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.

The Artists

Auryn Quartet:
Matthias Lingenfelder, violin
Jens Oppermann, violin
Stewart Eaton, viola
Andreas Arndt, violoncello

  • Juan Crisóstomo de Arriaga: String Quartet no. 3 in E-flat Major
  • Maurice Ravel: String Quartet in F Major

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

Olli Mustonen, piano

  • Peter Tchaikovsky: »Children's Album« op. 39
  • 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

Venice Baroque Orchestra - Marcon - Gauvin

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.

The Artists:

Venice Baroque Orchestra
Andrea Marcon, conductor
Karina Gauvin, soprano

  • Antonio Vivaldi Concerto in G Minor »Per l'orchestra di Dresda« RV 577, Concerto in G Minor RV 566, »In turbato mare irato«.

Martynas & Sinchronic Quartet

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.

Dresdner Kreuzchor & Händelfestspielorchester

The Dresdner Kreuzchor, one of the oldest and most famous boys' choirs in the world, will celebrate its 800th birthday in 2016. And that's how long the Kreuzkirche has served as a home to the varied musical activities of the young singers. 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.  

The Artists

Dresdner Kreuzchor
Handel Festival Orchestra Halle
Roderich Kreile, conductor
Christina Elbe, soprano
Henriette Gödde, alto
Robert Sellier, tenor
Julian Orlishausen, baritone

Bamberg Symphony - Eschenbach - Grubinger

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.

The Artists:

Bamberg Symphony
Christoph Eschenbach, conductor
Martin Grubinger, percussion

  • Avner Dorman »Frozen in Time«

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.

The Artists

Mariza, singer (fado)
José Manuel Neto, Portuguese guitar
Pedro Jóia, acoustic/classical guitar
Fernando Araújo (Yami), acoustic bass
Hugo Marques (Vicky), drums and percussion

Concert Duration: 2 hours
