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 & 8)

Britten Sinfonia
Thomas Ades, 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 No. 7 and No. 8

Thomas Adès and 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.

Donizetti: Il Paria

A rare chance to hear Il Paria, one of Donizetti’s most innovative and daring scores, conducted by Sir Mark Elder with Britten Sinfonia.

Working in partnership with Britten Sinfonia, and featuring acclaimed Russian coloratura soprano Albina Shagimuratova, Opera Rara present Donizetti’s Il Paria, a work that brings a new exotic colour to Italian opera of the period, inspired by its setting in ancient India.
