    Concert symphonique 11

    Mahler Chamber Orchestra | François-Xavier Roth | Sol Gabetta

    Sol Gabetta  violoncelle
    Béla Bartók (1881–1945)
    Divertimento pour orchestre à cordes Sz 113  
    Bohuslav Martinů (1890–1959)
    Concerto pour violoncelle et orchestre no 1 H 196
    Georges Bizet (1838–1875)
    Jeux d’enfants. Petite suite d’orchestre 
    Joseph Haydn (1732–1809)
    Symphonie en sol mineur Hob. I:83 La Poule

    Il y a des années déjà, Sol Gabetta décidait « de faire connaître au public le Premier Concerto pour violoncelle de Martinů, qui est vraiment génial de par son contenu musical comme d’un point de vue “violoncellistique”, explique-t-elle. L’écriture orchestrale est opulente, les thèmes, qui s’appuient sur des mélodies populaires tchèques, superbes, et surtout la structure rythmique me semble très intéressante. » On ne s’étonnera donc pas qu’elle vienne le jouer à Lucerne lorsqu’elle y est invitée comme « artiste étoile ». Au début du concert résonneront d’autres mélodies populaires, hongroises cette fois-ci, dans le Divertimento de Bartók. Après l’entracte, François-Xavier Roth et le Mahler Chamber Orchestra nous emmèneront au royaume de l’enfance avec les Jeux d’enfants de Bizet où il est question de toupie, poupée, colin-maillard et bien d’autres choses encore avant le galop final. On restera ensuite en France avec une symphonie parisienne de Haydn, La Poule, dont on reconnaîtra les caquètements au hautbois.

    Mahler Chamber Orchestra

    The Mahler Chamber Orchestra (MCO) was founded in 1997 by former members of the Gustav Mahler Youth Orchestra. Today some 45 musicians from 20 nations form the core of this independently financed ensemble, which performs about 180 concerts each year. Over the course of its 21-year history, the MCO has performed on five continents. In addition to co-founder Claudio Abbado, Daniel Harding has had lasting influence on the development of the MCO; after eight years as its leader, he was named Conductor Laureate for Life in 2011. Daniele Gatti has been closely associated with the ensemble as Artistic Advisor since 2016; they have already performed a Beethoven cycle and will also take on the major symphonic repertoire together in the coming years. Collaborating in the role of Artistic Partners are the conductor Teodor Currentzis, the violinist Pekka Kuusisto, and the pianist Mitsuko Uchida, who will perform the Mozart piano concertos with the ensemble over several seasons. Among the highlights of recent years is the award-winning project Beethoven Journey with Leif Ove Andsnes, which presented the complete Beethoven piano concertos and which has also been released as a recording. The MCO is a regular guest at LUCERNE FESTIVAL, where many of its musicians also participate in the LUCERNE FESTIVAL ORCHESTRA. In 2018 the MCO launched a long-term collaboration with the Heidelberg Spring Festival and had a residency at the Ojai Festival in California. The MCO received the International Opera Award in 2013 for the premiere of George Benjamin’s Written on Skin at the Aix-en-Provence Festival; in 2018 it performed this work at the Holland Festival. The MCO’s discography has garnered such distinctions as the Grammy Award and the Diapason d’or. In 2017 it received the German Design Award for its branding.

    LUCERNE FESTIVAL debut on 8 September 1999 in a program of works by Mozart and Beethoven conducted by Kurt Masur.

    François-Xavier Roth

    The French conductor François-Xavier Roth, who was born in 1971 in Neuilly-sur-Seine as the son of the organist Daniel Roth, began his musical career as a flutist. In the mid-1990s, he decided to shift gears and completed the course in conducting led by Janós Fürst at the Paris Conservatoire, additionally taking courses with Jorma Panula. Following his first experiences as Assistant Conductor with the London Symphony Orchestra, where he worked with Pierre Boulez and Sir Colin Davis, in 2003 Roth founded his own ensemble, Les Siècles, with which he performs works from the 17th century up to the present, using period as well as modern instruments. He has made numerous recordings with this ensemble; these have garnered such awards as the German Record Critics’ Prize, the Edison Award, the Diapason d’or, and the Victoires de la Musique. From 2011 to 2016, Roth helmed the SWR Symphony Orchestra Baden-Baden and Freiburg, and since 2015 he has served as Gürzenich Kapellmeister and General Music Director of the City of Cologne. He has additionally served as Principal Guest
    Conductor of the London Symphony Orchestra since 2017, inaugurating his position there with a Debussy cycle. In January 2018, the Philharmonie in Paris named him the first “artiste associé” in its history. Roth has guest conducted the Berlin Philharmonic, the Staatskapelle Berlin, the Boston Symphony Orchestra, the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra Amsterdam, the Zurich Tonhalle Orchestra, the Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique, and the Orchestre de Paris. His most recent release, which appeared in the spring of 2018, is of Ravel’s Ma mère l’Oye and Le Tombeau de Couperin with Les Siècles. On Bastille Day 2017, François-Xavier Roth was named a Chevalier de la Légion d’Honneur.
