September Festival

Grimaud – Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra – Honeck

Program booklet one-sided (0.8 MB – in German only)
Program booklet double-sided (2.3 MB – in German only)

For more than 120 years, the tradition-steeped Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, winner of two »Grammy Awards«, has been at the cultural heart of its hometown and region, and has won ardent admirers not only at home, but also on its numerous tours abroad. The orchestra and its chief conductor Manfred Honeck are currently in their 14th joint season – a high-carat and award-winning musical liaison, which can now be admired at the Kulturpalast in Dresden. The concert begins with the Czech composer Erwin Schulhoff’s »Five Pieces for String Quartet«, a work inspired by dance music. These are followed by Maurice Ravel’s Piano Concerto, an audience favourite with a cheerful and breezy character, which will be emphasized in the interpretation by the great pianist Hélène Grimaud. For the finale, the orchestra and the conductor delve into romantic sounds worlds, performing Piotr Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony in all its melancholy beauty.

Batiashvili – Philadelphia Orchestra – Nézet-Séguin

Program booklet one-sided (1.2 MB – in German only)
Program booklet double-sided (7.4 MB – in German only)

Another top US orchestra, the Philadelphia Orchestra, is featured at the Dresden Music Festival. The extraordinary chemistry between the orchestra and its chief Yannick Nézet-Séguin has been proven over and over in acclaimed performances in the USA and abroad as well as award-winning recordings. The brilliant soloist is star violinist Lisa Batiashvili, performing two colourful works: Karl Szymanowski’s virtuosic Violin Concerto in all its intriguing, shimmering nuance, and »Poème« for violin and orchestra, probably the most well-known composition by the Frenchman Ernest Chausson, inspired by a novella by the Russian writer Ivan Turgenev. Antonín Dvořák’s Seventh Symphony, successfully premiered in London in 1885, which shares the key of D-minor and the august, uplifting character with Beethoven’s Ninth, concludes this concert evening.

September Festival

Cleveland Orchestra & Welser- Möst

Program booklet one-sided (0.9 MB – in German only)
Program booklet double-sided (3.7 MB – in German only)

Nor will the concert of the Cleveland Orchestra und Franz Welser-Möst leave anything to be desired. The orchestra, praised as one of the world’s leading ensembles, and its conductor are a long-standing team, looking back to two decades of highly successful collaboration. The audience at the Kulturpalast may look forward to a unique sample of their art, a performance dedicated to colourful compositions to Richard Strauss. The composer’s tone poems are certainly among the most gripping and virtuosic works in orchestral literature: »Macbeth« and »Till Eulenspiegels lustige Streiche« are two of Strauss’ masterworks, with the composer pulling out all the stops. The evening ends on a light-hearted note, with a suite of excerpts from »Der Rosenkavalier« selected by Welser-Möst for this purpose.

The Cleveland Orchestra
Franz Welser-Möst – Conductor
