We already wrote about the Ljubljana Festival that will commemorate the tenth anniversary of the death of Carlos Kleiber with a concert conducted by Riccardo Muti on July, 7th. It’s a pleasure for us to host a global information about this festival. AT THE HEART OF YOUR SUMMER ADVENTURE The 62nd edition of the Ljubljana Festival, featuring a highly diverse and exciting program, will run between 1 July and 1 September this summer. Five concerts in Ljubljana’s Congress Square together with one at the Piazza Unità in neighbouring Trieste will make for an even more varied summer beat across two cities. The Festival gets off to a passionate start with a performance of Carmina Burana and by the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra of Amsterdam. Renowned conductors Uroš Lajovic, Riccardo Muti, Karel Mark Chichon, Nikša Bareza, George Pehlivanian, Vladislav Černušenko, Andres Mustonen and Mariss Jansons all come to lead and inspire. Alongside the celebrated Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra of Amsterdam are Moscow ...

Composers Datebook for April 26, 2014 Saturday, April 26 Michael Hersch's Symphony No. 2 On today’s date in 2002, Mariss Jansons led the Pittsburg Symphony in the premiere performance of the Second Symphony written by a then 32-year-old American composer named Michael Hersch. Hardly a child prodigy, Michael Hersch was introduced to classical music at age 18 by his brother Jamie, who showed him a videotape of Georg Solti conducting Beethoven's Fifth. That experience shook him. "It scrambled everything.” Hersch recalled. “That's when I knew that I was to be a composer... My whole life started over at that moment." Hersch certainly made up for lost time, exhibiting an uncanny ability to master both the piano and the intricacies of contemporary compositional techniques in less than a decade. His first success as a composer came when his “Elegy for Strings” won a major prize and was conducted by Marin Alsop at Lincoln Center in New York in 1997. Since then his works have been commissioned and perform ...

How Come Work Doesn't Imitate Art? Last Tuesday I heard one of the finest concerts I have ever heard in my life. (And I have gone to lots of concerts over the years.) It was the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra conducted by Mariss Jansons. They played Mahler’s First Symphony. I love that piece of music and have heard fine recordings of it, but this was something else. Transcendent isn’t a word I use very often, but I don’t have other words to describe that sublime experience. (Other performances that are still vibrantly alive in my memory: hearing Karl Richter conduct the Bach B Minor Mass, John Coltrane’s quartet performing A Love Supreme live, and seeing Kathleen Turner and Bill Irwin in Who’s Afraid of Virginia Wolff stand out.) Then I thought about the world of work. How come I have never been in a meeting that had a similar impact on me? I know that art is different, but why? I certainly have felt engaged, productive, proud, believing that I was making a difference, etc. when I worked on som . ...

En toch. Blistering Bartók from Kavakos and the Concertgebouw in New York Wednesday, 13-Feb-13 20:00 Carnegie Hall: Stern Auditorium/Perelman Stage, New York City, NY Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra Bartók, Violin Concerto no. 2, Sz 112 Mahler, Symphony no. 1 in D major "Titan" Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra Mariss Jansons, Conductor Leonidas Kavakos, Violin Two programmes, four works, and nothing written before 1880: the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra and their chief conductor Mariss Jansons certainly know how to play to their strengths on tour. What strengths they are, too. This orchestra generates a uniquely warm sound, maintains scrupulously clean textures, and possesses technical skills that surpass even the finest of other orchestras. Its principals demonstrate how to be musical individuals within a collective, and the wells of colour available on this orchestra’s palette are so kaleidoscopic, delivered in phrases full of light and shade, that one begins to wonder if there is anything the Concertgeb ...
I went to the Kennedy Center last night to hear the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra Amsterdam, Mariss Jansons conducting. It was a great concert. The first half was Bartok's Violin Concerto No. 2, not something I know well but nicely done with a young soloist named Leonidas Kavakos. The second half was Mahler's Symphony No. 1, a favorite of mine and performed better than I'd ever heard it--incredible ensemble playing, the strings smooth and wonderful brass. The first time I heard this orchestra was c. 1996 in Shanghai, in the municipal stadium. They sounded good there, but they did better on a concert hall stage last night than they did on risers on a basketball court 15+ years ago.
I'm going tonight to hear the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra under Mariss Jansons--Richard Strauss and Bruckner. I may melt from Weltschmerz.
