Aldeburgh Festival

Aldeburgh Festival 2018 celebrates Britten and America. It also reflects 1948 - the remarkable period in post-war British history when the festival began and when so much of what we now regard to be the backbone of our cultural life was launched. In his centenary the music of Bernstein plays a significant part in the festival. Britten and Bernstein: composers, pianists, conductors, programme planners, educators, and major media figures were towering creative leaders, and are linked but rarely met each other. They sailed against prevailing winds and were celebrated and revered everywhere, and here they can be heard side by side with many connections that resonate across the festival. These links include Peter Grimes, W H Auden, Revd Walter Hussey and their composing friend Aaron Copland.

Stefan Hofkes, conductor

Purcell arr Stokowski: Dido's Lament
Vaughan Williams: Dona nobis pacem
Berlioz: Symphonie Fantastique

This concert of two halves opens with Stokowski's string arrangement of Purcell's heartrending Dido's Lament ('When I am Laid in Earth'), providing an incredibly effective prelude to Vaughan Williams' empassioned plea for peace Dona nobis pacem (written after the composer's experiences as an ambulance driver in World War I) and recognised as a neglected choral masterpiece.

For the second half, the incredible Symphonie Fantastique - the 'programme symphony' written by a 27-year-old Berlioz telling the (autobiographical) story of "an artist gifted with a lively imagination" who has "poisoned himself with opium" in the "depths of despair" because of "hopeless, unrequited love." The five movements of this hallucinatory tale include a beautiful waltz, the famous 'March to the Scaffold' and concludes at the funeral of the hero attended by sorcerers and monsters.

Or, as Leonard Bernstein put it 'Berlioz tells it like it is. You take a trip, you wind up screaming at your own funeral.' Fantastical indeed ...

Susan Raymond

This unique program weaves together works by the 17th century Italian and the 20th century Hungarian, demonstrating the common ground of the musical worlds of these two revolutionary composers.
All four singers practice the Libero Canto approach to singing: a wholistic concept of music-making that emphasizes freedom and authenticity. It was developed by the Hungarian Lajos Szamosi in Budapest in the 1930s, who called it, "the path to free singing" - la via al libero canto.
The performance is at the Hungarian House, 213 East 82nd Street in Manhattan.
Tickets are $10 in advance, $20 at the door.
