Portret van Pjotr Iljitsj Tsjaikovski

Tekst – Gerrit Komrij
Instrumentatie – 
Dmitri Smirnov

Een portret schetsen van Pjotr Iljitsj Tsjaikovski, de Godfather van de Russische muziek, is voorwaar geen sinecure. Rus en internationaal, ambtenaar en kunstenaar, depressief, neurotisch en onmatig emotioneel, openlijk homoseksueel of niet, suïcidaal of niet, het laatste woord is er door biografen nog lang niet over gezegd. Gerrit Komrij kruipt in de huid van Tsjaikovski en brengt zijn correspondentie met Nadezjda von Meck, een rijke weduwe die hem dertien jaar lang steunde met geld en opdrachten maar daarna plotsklaps uit zijn leven verdween, weer tot leven. Pjotr logeerde met regelmaat op het landgoed van Nadezjda, maar ze ontmoetten elkaar nooit; een curieuze, ondoorgrondelijke verhouding met hartstocht en passie.

Dmitri Smirnov, eigentijds meester van het Russische klankkleuren-palet, instrumenteert op verzoek van het NBE Souvenir de Florence. Daarnaast nieuw geschreven muzikale herinneringen aan Tsjaikovski van Vlademir Tarnopolski en
Elena Firsova en Alissa Firsova.

HOMMAGE A ROSTROPOVICH
Conductor: Valentin DONI, Moldova
Soloist: Anatole Liebermann, cello, Russia
Soloist: Klaudia Remencová-Kudjová, cello
Soloist: Felicia Doni, piano, Moldova

Program:
Antonio Vivaldi: Double Concerto for two Violoncellos and Orchestra
Elena Olegovna Firsova:
Concerto - Elegy for Cello and Orchestra (Hommage a Rostropovich) Slovak premiere
Valentin Doni: Balkan Fantasy for Piano and Orchestra
Piotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky: Suite No. 4 in G, Op. 60  „Mozartiana“

Mstislav Rostropovich was a legendary Russian cellist and conductor, considered to be the greatest cellist of the 20th century, with colossal talent and personality.  At his death in 2007, the funeral was attended by Russian President Vladimir Putin and the Spanish Queen Sofia.  The originator of this concert is Misha Katz, a student of Rostropovich and a favorite conductor and cellist here, who on this occasion turns the baton over to his friend, the excellent Moldavian conductor and composer Valentin Doni.  A curiosity of the program will be the performance of a new work by the renowned Russian composer Elena Firsova:  Elegy for Cello and Orchestra In Memory of Rostropovich.  This work was composed for the famous Russian cellist Anatoly Liebermann, and is receiving its Slovak premiere here, shortly after its world premiere in London.  A second musical treat will be the Slovak premiere of Balkan Fantasy for Piano and Orchestra, by Valentin Doni, performed by his daughter Felicia.

http://www.abc.net.au/classic/iscm2010/

I am sure that you will be puzzled that we are playing your work for the ISCM festival. The story is that we were asked to perform only 4 weeks ago when a musician from New Zealand was taken ill and had to cancel her performance.  We did not have time to learn new repertoire (although we had given World Premieres of the Davidson in February and the Ricketson last October) for this concert. We are very pleased to be presenting Far Away again and in this forum.
With my best wishes,
James Nightingale

Symfonisch concert - Rotterdams Kamerorkest Jean Sibelius / Andante Festivo

Elena Firsova / Chamber concerto nr. 1
Soliste: Marieke Schneemann, fluit
Dmitri Shostakovich / Symfonie voor strijkers Op. 118a
Pjotr Iljitsj Tsjaikovski / Serenade voor strijkers

Het Rotterdams Kamerorkest werd in 2000 opgericht door chefdirigent Conrad van Alphen. Het orkest wordt geprogrammeerd in de concerseries van Het Concertgebouw Amsterdam, De Doelen Rotterdam en Muziekcentrum Vredenburg Utrecht. Het Rotterdams Kamerorkest was al twee keer eerder bij Parkstad Limburg Theaters te gast. Het orkest voelt zich thuis in alle stijlperioden. Zo bevat het programma de bekende serenade voor strijkers van Tsjaikovski, maar ook het ‘chamber concerto’ van de Russische componiste Elena Firsova (1950). Soliste in dit werk is de Nederlandse fluitiste Marieke Schneemann, voormalig solofluitiste van het Rotterdams Philharmonisch Orkest. Het ‘Andante Festivo’ van de Fin Jean Sibelius en de aangrijpende ‘Symfonie voor strijkers’ complementeren het afwisselende en luisterrijke programma.

Dirigent: Conrad van Alphen

Soliste: Marieke Schneemann, fluit

biographical information

EnsembleCam?l?on, the only group of its kind in The Netherlands, was set up by a group of friends in 2002. Most of the group are principal string players with the leading Dutch orchestras such as the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Rotterdam Philharmonic and the Dutch Radio Philharmonic, and aim to bring the traditional chamber music repertoire to a broader audience. The group has as its core pairs of Violins, Violas and Celli and one Double Bass and works alongside leading composers, singers, instrumentalists, dancers and actors to enhance their exciting and innovative programming. The group also regularly broadcasts for both Dutch and German radio and have recorded their own CD of works by Mozart for the German CD label Signum. This season EnsembleCam?l?on performed its debut in the Concertgebouw Amsterdam chamber music series.
