PMF2018
from PMF Orchestra Concert <Program A>
~for the 125th anniversary of the death of Tchaikovsky~

Recording:

July 15 (Sun), 2018 | Sapporo Concert Hall Kitara

Artists:

John Axelrod, conductor
Rinat Shaham, mezzo soprano*
PMF EUROPE**
PMF Orchestra

Program:

  • Mahler: Blumine[00:58-]

    Mahler originally wrote Blumine (“bloomings”) as a movement of his Symphony No. 1, before abruptly suppressing it. Rediscovered decades after his death, it garnered immediate praise as an independent piece, and has become known perhaps especially for its beautiful trumpet solos.

  • Mahler: Lieder nach Gedichten von Friedrich Rückert*[08:27-]
    • Blicke mir nicht in die Lieder![08:52-]
    • Ich atmet' einen linden Duft[10:21-]
    • Um Mitternacht[13:05-]
    • Liebst du um Schönheit[19:33-]
    • Ich bin der Welt abhanden gekommen[22:20-]

    This song cycle sets to music 5 poems of the 19th century German poet Friedrich Rückert, whose work served as a creative impetus for a long list of composers. Israeli mezzo soprano Rinat Shaham, acclaimed for her performances both in opera houses and on concert stages with the likes of the Berlin Philharmonic, offers a deeply passionate interpretation.

  • Tchaikovsky: Symphony No. 4 in f minor, Op. 36**[30:08-]
    • Andante Sostenuto – Moderato con anima[30:33-]
    • Andantino in modo di canzona[49:23-]
    • Scherzo. Pizzicato ostinato[1:00:14-]
    • Finale. Allegro con fuoco[1:06:01-]

    The program concludes with Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 4, full of dynamic, dramatic shifts and beloved by classical fans the world over, led by Principal Conductor John Axelrod, a student of Bernstein making his return to PMF in honor of the Bernstein centennial.

PMF2018
from PMF Orchestra Concert <Program C>
~Gergiev conducts Mahler~

Recording:

July 29 (Sun), 2018 | Sapporo Concert Hall Kitara
(from the PMF GALA Concert)

Artists:

Valery Gergiev, conductor
PMF AMERICA*
PMF Orchestra

Program:

  • Verdi: I vespri siciliani overture[01:05-]

    This overture comes from Verdi’s opera based on an uprising in Palermo, Sicily in the 13th century that came to be known as Vespri siciliani (“Sicilian Vespers”). Something of the drama of that event is present here, especially in the momentum that builds toward its climactic finale.

  • Mahler: Symphony No. 7 in e minor*[09:15-]
    • Langsam (Adagio) - Allegro risoluto, ma non troppo[09:40-]
    • Nachtmusik I. Allegro moderato[29:20-]
    • Scherzo. Schattenhaft[42:58-]
    • Nachtmusik II. Andante amoroso[51:31-]
    • Rondo-Finale. Allegro ordinario[1:02:53-]

    Among Mahler’s symphonies, the 7th stands out for its enigmatic nature, it’s structural complexity, and the demands it makes on the performers, all of which lend to it being relatively rarely performed. Near the end of Mahler’s life, in a letter to his publisher, Mahler wrote that it was his “best work.”
    Artistic Director Valery Gergiev’s interpretations of the complete Mahler symphonic cycle are universally acclaimed; here you can experience him leading the PMF Orchestra in the first performance of this symphony in the festival’s history – the grand culmination of PMF 2018!

PMF2018
from PMF Orchestra Concert <Program B>
~All-Bernstein Program~

These performances are from an all-Bernstein program performed by the PMF Orchestra in celebration of the Bernstein centennial, led by PMF Guest Conductor Edwin Outwater, a musical craftsman known for his interpretations of a truly wide ranging repertoire including Bernstein’s works. Fancy Free is deceptively lighthearted ballet music that overflows with jazz, and the Symphony No. 2 “Age of Anxiety,” with its dramatic encounters between piano and orchestra, features Andrew Tyson as soloist, hailed by BBC Radio 3 as “a real poet of the piano.” This program, of such deep significance to the festival, is not to be missed.
