Brilliant, mature, cultivated and sensitive is how the press describes the style of Beatrice Rana (1993), one of the brightest stars in the galaxy of great pianists. Winner of the prestigious Montreal International Competition (2011), “2017 Young Artist of the Year” (Gramophone), “Best Female Artist 2018” (Classic BRIT), and an exclusive recording artist for Warner Classic, the natural-born soloist is also founder of the Classiche Forme (2017), a festival dedicated to presenting chamber music in a dynamic, young, and attractive way.
The pianist’s stylistically varied recitals are a reflection of her technical superiority, musical intelligence and refreshing professionalism. The evening’s programme reveals her special approach: Beatrice feels the links between the works as much instinctively as intellectually.

“Her touch is weighty: the notes come through with a full and rounded timbre. But with the weightiness of touch comes almost uncanny accuracy, so the melody in a passage of notes is clear as well as rich: there’s no question of the waters being muddied.” Bachtrack

“This may be the most subtle playing you ever heard but there are moments when it is the most powerfully commanding. The pianist is not just the gentlest nymph you ever encountered; she is also the most forceful goddess.” Jack Buckley

Improvisation – Dance Suite

Composer, organist and improviser Thierry Escaich – “one of the most fascinating chameleons of his generation” (Diapason) – is able to combine these three profiles in a unique manner, binding them inextricably together to reflect his rich inner world. An ambassador of the great French school of improvisation, Escaich is equally impressive as a brilliant performer keeping alive the time-honoured tradition of Paris organ school, or an inspired composer whose unique, highly personal style – informed by the French line of composition and imbued with references from contemporary music – covers a broad spectrum of forms and genres.
Presented under the evocative title Mirror Dances, the evening’s programme takes us on a thrilling musical journey. Pairing the elaborate grandeur of the Baroque style with contemporary pieces, it is interspersed with the organist’s own compositions and masterful improvisations.

 

There are vast torrents of notes – yet such is their energy and buoyancy that the listener is carried irresistibly in the flow. To counterbalance this apparently unstoppable force, Escaich concerns himself with structure and, in characteristically French fashion, also explores the colour and timbres of sound, with sometimes cataclysmic peaks.
The Guardian

In these works one can recognise the essential qualities of Escaich’s music; the originality of his harmonies, the richness of his orchestration and an unerring understanding of form. If Thierry Escaich has become the pre-eminent composer of his generation, it is through the value of his poetic ideas and the glorious atmosphere he creates, penetrated with lyrical impulses.
L’Express

 

 

 His concerto exploits the full sonic and colour ranges of the orchestra and organ in this thrilling three-movement work, the second rising to an awe-inspiring climax only topped by the shattering coda of the finale.

Fatoumata Diawara

Druga godba

Fatoumata Diawara release Fenfo follow-up to her widely acclaimed debut Fatou. The album was coproduced by Diawara and Mattieu Chedid (better known by his stage name -M-). Hailed as one of the most vital standard-bearers of modern African music, Fatoumata takes her artistry to fresh and thrilling heights on her album Fenfo. It’s a record that defines her as the voice of young African womanhood – proud of her heritage but with a vision that looks confidently to the future making the Malian singer, songwriter, guitarist and acclaimed actress the most talked about new African artist of recent years. Fenfo is an album that has no borders. The modernity of stinging electric guitar lines combine with the ancient African strings of the kora and kamel ngoni and kit drums combine with the timeless rhythms of traditional percussion. The compositions of Fenfo cover the gamut of African styles, ancient and modern, from the slow-burning blues to the funk via the Afro-pop. Fatoumata has previously worked with biggest name’s of the contemporary music (Bobby Womack, Herbie Hancock, Damon Albarn’s, Snarky Puppy…); in the last two years she had played at the main Festivals and venues of Europe (Glastonbury, Montreaux Jazz Festival, Roskilde, Afrika Hertme Festival, Jazz a Vinenne, Olympia, Barbican, Oslo World Music Festival, Festival Cruilles, Colour Café, Rudolstadt Festival, La Mar de Musicas, Dromos Festival, Konserthuset Stockholm, Le Trianon, Muffathalle, Jazz Sous les Pommiers, and other major Festivals).

Gustav Mahler Youth Orchestra (Gustav Mahler Jugendorchester)

Conductor: Daniele Gatti

Programme:
Dmitri Shostakovich, Symphony No. 7 in C Major, Op. 60, “Leningrad”

A pan-European talent pool, Gustav Mahler Jugendorchester is the legacy of a visionary artist, the great conductor Claudio Abbado. It is an idealistic project that ensures the future of Europe's cultural heritage by investing into the next generation. Uncompromising both in his humanistic vision and the musical standards he wanted to achieve, Abbado made this orchestra an elite institution from the very beginning, thus solidifying its international recognition and making it highly sought-after among concert soloists. Abbado’s worthy successor, Daniele Gatti is the last in the long line of GMJO’s great conductors (from Pierre Boulez and Iván Fischer to Mariss Jansons and David Afkham). Music director of Teatro dell'Opera di Roma and Orchestra Mozart in Bologna, Gatti was presented with the 2015  Italian music critics’ Premio “Franco Abbiati” and awarded the Chevalier de la Légion d'Honneur from the French Republic.

The orchestra, Ambassador of UNICEF Austria and winner of the prestigious European Cultural Foundation Award, stands apart from all other youth orchestras also in terms of repertoire. Its programmes are never mainstream, they are always engaging and demanding, and they follow thoroughly planned dramaturgical concepts: GMJO will undoubtedly display great maturity in confronting Shostakovich’s musical testament to the casualties of World War II, a symphonic work perfectly suited for this extremely large ensemble.
 


 

 

Actually, I have nothing against calling the Seventh the Leningrad, but it’s not about Leningrad under siege. It’s about the Leningrad that Stalin destroyed, and that Hitler merely finished off.
Dmitri Shostakovich
 

One sensed a maturity in the musicianship as well as technique that belied the irony of ‘youth’ dealing with a programme obsessed with the end of life.

Montreal Symphony Orchestra (Orchestre symphonique de Montréal)

Conductor: Kent Nagano

Soloists:  
Nikolai Lugansky piano
Olivier Latry organ

Programme:
Béla Bartók, The Miraculous Mandarin, suite, Op. 19, BB 82
Camille Saint-Saëns, Symphony No. 3 in C minor, Op. 78, “Organ”
*
Johannes Brahms, Piano Concerto No. 2 in B-flat Major, Op. 83

 
The impressive Orchestre symphonique de Montréal is the world’s only orchestra to have in its ranks the rare octobass (the largest and lowest-sounding instrument of the string family). The orchestra’s home is Maison symphonique de Montréal, a concert hall noted for its acoustic flexibility whose setting has been adapted to suit the orchestra's natural sound. Since 2006 the orchestra has been dazzling international audiences under the baton of its music director, Kent Nagano, a conductor of great precision and elegance.

The evening’s soloists are Nikolai Lugansky, an Honoured Artist of the Russian Federation (2019) and a pianist who combines elegance and grace with powerful virtuosity, as well as Olivier Latry, “2009 International Performer of the Year” (American Guild of Organists, New York), an artist counted among the most noted “improvisateurs” in the exceptional French tradition and devoted to exploring the broadest spectrum of organ repertoire.

The evening’s programme reflects the curiosity and breadth Kent Nagano is known for: bringing to life lesser-known and neglected works and re-evaluating the core repertoire of classical orchestral music.
 

 

Widely acclaimed for his clear and cohesive orchestral performances, Nagano also demonstrates a thoughtfulness about social, historical and philosophical issues that is not often observed with conductors.
Rick Fulker

Instrumental glow, sustaining emotional warmth and, when wanted, scorching fire — a rare and marvelous combination and something that can be produced only by an orchestra in glowing health.
Los Angeles Times

Lugansky is not simply the most wonderful Russian pianist of modern times; he is one of the most outstanding artists of our epoch…
Le Monde

Latry, one of the instrument’s great colourists, a gifted virtuoso and improvisateur par excellence, is also a deeply thoughtful interpreter with a vivid musical imagination.

Soloists: Franco Fagioli Oreste; Francesca Aspromonte Ifigenia; Francesca Ascioti Filotete; Julia Lezhneva Ermione; Krystian Adam Pilade; Renato Dolcini Toante

Programme
George F. Handel
Oreste, opera in three acts, HWV A11, concert performance

Handel’s operatic masterpiece Oreste is a stylistically coherent pastiche for which the composer assembled a collection of arias from his earlier operas and oratorios, binding the music seamlessly with the newly-written recitatives to create a new musical drama. This rarely performed work is tackled by a winning team: the enthusiastic Il Pomo d'oro, “Orchestra of the Year 2018” (Gramophone), charismatic and inspiring Maxim Emelyanychev, recipient of the prestigious “Newcomer of the Year 2019” opera award, and the brilliant countertenor Franco Fagioli, “Argentinian Singer of the Year” (2017).

The Ljubljana audiences’ darlings are returning in the company of great vocalists; Julia Lezhneva – whose music releases have won several prestigious awards (Echo Klassik, Muse d'Or, Diapason d'Or, etc.), and Francesca Aspromonte – a specialist in Baroque opera roles, as well as several rising stars in the operatic firmament who are rapidly establishing themselves as some of the most interesting young voices for the Baroque repertoire. 

Drawing on mythological material adapted from Euripides' tragedy, Handel's Oreste reimagines the famous story about matricidal antihero Orestes and his long lost sister Iphigenia, this time in a concert performance.

Maxim Emelyanychev is a man on springs: he directs from the keyboard with almost manic intensity, alert to every rhythmic nuance in the score, urging his players on like a coachman driving a team of mane-tossing thoroughbreds.
Bachtrack

Even in a concert performance, Franco Fagioli completely inhabits the part ... He flounces, he preens, he purrs, he prowls ... decorates and embellishes with astonishing ease and supreme musicality.
Bachtrack

Il Pomo d’Oro, perhaps the most exciting Baroque ensemble of all time.
