BERGEN PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA CONCERT CANCELLED
We regret to inform you that the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra has decided not to hold its Ljubljana concert due to Slovenia’s deterioration epidemiological situation. The concert, scheduled to take place on 5 December as part of the Golden Season Series, has been cancelled. Information on alternative concert will be announced soon.
Solist: Malin Byström, soprano
György Ligeti, Melodien, for orchestra
Richard Strauss, Four Last Songs, for soprano and orchestra, Op. posth.
Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, Symphony No. 4 in F minor, Op. 36
One of the world’s oldest ensembles, the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra traces its history far back into the 18th century and is recipient of the prestigious Gramophone’s Orchestra of the Year Award (2020). The illustrious figures that have led the orchestra throughout its rich history include Grieg, Lutosławski, Penderecki..., and currently Edward Gardner. Winner of the 2008 Royal Philharmonic Society Award for Best Conductor and the Laurence Olivier Award for outstanding achievements in opera, Gardner will assume the position of principal conductor of the London Philharmonic Orchestra in September 2021.
The orchestra’s reputation for stylistic diversity is reflected in the evening’s programme: Strauss’s late Romanticism is combined with the mellifluous Russian symphony and Ligeti's expanded sound flow.
The orchestra sounded remarkably good, with solid woodwind playing, a warm, homogenous string sound and beautiful horn playing.
Aksel Tollali, 2018
Gardner marshalled his forces superbly, pointing at slight shifts in timbre or accenting in each repeat and expertly weighting the dynamics.
David Karlin, 2020
