    Orchestre symphonique de la Radio bavaroise | Mariss Jansons | Denis Matsuev

    Divertimento pour orchestre

    Pour le concert final du festival de Pâques, Mariss Jansons et l’Orchestre de la Radio bavaroise nous proposeront une œuvre de saison, la Symphonie Le Printemps de Schumann. Le compositeur l’a écrite pour marquer la fin de l’hiver 1841, « animé de cet élan printanier qui vous saisit chaque année probablement jusqu’à l’âge le plus avancé ». Il indique à un ami chef d’orchestre : « Je veux que le premier appel de trompettes sonne comme s’il venait des hauteurs, comme une invitation à l’éveil. » Et demande instamment : « Pouvez-vous insuffler à vos musiciens un peu de nostalgie du printemps dans leur jeu ? Parce que j’en étais rempli lorsque j’ai écrit l’œuvre. » Pas de printemps mais beaucoup de virtuosité dans la Rhapsodie sur un thème de Paganini de Rachmaninov, qu’interprétera le pianiste russe Denis Matsuev. Et avec le Divertimento pour orchestre de Bernstein, Jansons lancera les festivités du centenaire de la naissance du compositeur, à grand renfort de valse, de samba et de blues.

    Orchestre symphonique de la Radio bavaroise

    The Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra was founded in 1949. As its first Chief Conductor, Eugen Jochum helped establish the Orchestra during his 11-year tenure and brought it international renown, especially through his Bruckner performances. Succeeding him was Rafael Kubelík (1961–79), who conducted the ensemble’s first Mahler cycle and expanded its repertoire to include works by Slavic composers as well as 20th-century music. Sir Colin Davis, an acclaimed Berlioz specialist, stood at the helm from 1983 to 1992 and proved to be an equally strong advocate for the Viennese Classical era and the works of British composers. Lorin Maazel held the reins from 1993 to 2002 and led complete cycles of works by Beethoven, Brahms, Bruckner, Schubert, and Mahler. Since October 2003 Mariss Jansons has held the position of Chief Conductor, playing a repertoire that ranges widely, from Haydn to Shostakovich and contemporary composers. Many renowned conductors have led the Orchestra, from Otto Klemperer and Karl Böhm through Sir Georg Solti, Carlo Maria Giulini, and Leonard
    Bernstein to such stars of today as Herbert Blomstedt, Sir John Eliot Gardiner, Bernard Haitink, Andris Nelsons, Yannick Nézet-Séguin, and Franz Welser-Möst in the 2016-17 season. The Orchestra regularly premieres new works through its musica viva series. The BR Symphony performs on tour around the world: most recently, in late autumn 2016, they concertized in Japan, Taiwan, and South Korea, and, at the beginning of 2017, in Vienna, Paris, Wrocław, Katowice, Milan, Luxembourg, and Amsterdam. Since 2004 the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra has had an annual residency at Lucerne’s Easter Festival.

    LUCERNE FESTIVAL (IMF) debut on 28 August 1965 with works by Bartók and Bruckner, conducted by Rafael Kubelík.

    Denis Matsuev

    The Russian pianist Denis Matsuev, who was born in 1975 in Irkutsk in Siberia, is the son of two pianists. His father was his first teacher, and at the age of 15, Denis continued his piano studies in Moscow with Alexei Nasedkin and Sergei Dorensky. In 1998 Matsuev won the International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow and was immediately invited to perform around the world. Since then he has appeared at the Ravinia Festival, the Hollywood Bowl, the BBC Proms, the Edinburgh Festival, the Maggio Musicale in Florence, and La Roque d’Anthéron Piano Festival. He has performed with the Berlin Philharmonic, the New York Philharmonic, the Chicago and London Symphony Orchestras, the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, the Orchestre National de France, and the Filarmonica della Scala. As a guest artist Matsuev has partnered with such conductors as Valery Gergiev, Mariss Jansons, Lorin Maazel, Zubin Mehta, Antonio Pappano, and Yuri Temirkanov. More than a dozen CDs document his piano artistry, and during the past five years he has enjoyed a close partnership with the Rachmaninoff Foundation. Its founder, the composer’s grandson, Alexandre Rachmaninoff, who died in 2012, invited Matsuev to perform and record works by his grandfather on the composer’s own grand piano; some of these recordings took place in Rachmaninoff’s “Villa Senar” near Lucerne. Denis Matsuev also serves as Artistic Director of no fewer than three festivals; the Annecy Classic Festival in France, the Stars on Baika in his native Irkutsk, and the “Crescendo” Festival series of concerts, which, to date, he has produced in Moscow, St. Petersburg, Yekaterinburg, Tel Aviv, Kaliningrad, Paris, and New York.
