The Grand Tour: Italy - Corelli to Vivaldi

Early Music New York
Frederick Renz, director

Early Music New York concludes its Grand Tour with spring in sunny Italy, where the light that pervades its visual art suffuses its music as well. Corelli and Vivaldi concertos, sinfonias and overtures will frame a program enriched by contributions from such composers as Domenico Scarlatti (his virtuosic keyboard sonatas recast as concerti grossi by Charles Avison).

Colorado MahlerFest XXXII

One day in the 1970s, Robert Olson was reading a Mahler biography while sitting at the shore of Lake Dillon near Breckenridge, Colorado - a favorite spot framed by the magnificent 14,000 foot peaks of the Rockies.

Olsen had studied conducting with Hans Swarowsky in Vienna, where he had been deeply moved by the funeral march from Mahler's Symphony No 5 played at the Austrian president's funeral.

Olsen realized that this beautiful Colorado landscape was not unlike Mahler's summertime composing environs, and it was then that he conceived the Colorado MahlerFest.

Britten Sinfonia - Beethoven Symphony Cycle (Nos 7 and 8)

Britten Sinfonia
Thomas Adès, conductor

Beethoven: Symphony No 7
Gerald Barry: Dead March
Beethoven: Symphony No 8

A game of musical chairs plus a short but inventive symphony all bought together with a jubilant and joyous close: Britten Sinfonia’s Beethoven Cycle continues with Symphonies Nos 7 and 8.

Thomas Adès and the Britten Sinfonia continue their journey through Beethoven’s symphonies with the brief, brilliantly inventive Symphony No 7 and the jubilant Eighth. Irish composer (and Beethoven devotee) Gerald Barry draws on melodies that he loves in Dead March, then allows them to behave as if 'everything is possible'.

Gerald Barry: The Eternal Recurrence
Beethoven: Symphony No. 9 (choral)

Britten Sinfonia’s Beethoven Symphony Cycle, conducted by Thomas Adès, concludes with Beethoven’s mighty ‘choral’ symphony and Gerald Barry’s feverish The Eternal Recurrence.

Beethoven’s extraordinary Ninth Symphony is regarded by many as the finest of all symphonies, and its message of humanity, perhaps most famously encapsulated in the symphony’s Ode to Joy chorus, continues to resonate today (not least, as the anthem for the European Union). Here, Beethoven’s masterful celebration of the human race is paired with Gerald Barry’s The Eternal Recurrence, a brilliant, feverish setting of texts from Nietzsche’s philosophical novel Also sprach Zarathustra.
