Daniel Harding and the London Symphony Orchestra at the Barbican – 9th June 2016

harding (1)

The LSO’s Principal Guest Conductor’s second concert this month contrasts an achingly poignant concerto with a pastoral folk-tinged symphony.

Returning to the LSO for the first time in 10 years, Lisa Batiashvili performs Bartók’s First Violin Concerto. Written for the composer’s true love violinist Stefi Geyer , the piece was  held back from performance for fifty years and  it remains a bitter-sweet masterpiece straight from the heart. Dvorak was a proud countryman, often drawing on the folk and dance tunes of his native Bohemia. His Eighth Symphony is perhaps the most joyous example of this, moving from the idyllic to the rustic.

Programme

Dvořák Overture: Othello

Bartók Violin Concerto No 1

Dvořák Symphony No 8

Performers

Daniel Harding conductor

Lisa Batiashvili violin

London Symphony Orchestra

Leif Ove Andsnes at the Barbican – 8th May 2016

17626160508andsnes186131

LSO Principal Guest Conductor Daniel Harding leads the LSO in Bruckner’s Third Symphony, the work which marked a major artistic breakthrough for the Austrian composer.Bruckner dedicated his third symphony to fellow composer Wagner who was his great inspiration.

Acclaimed Norwegian pianist  Leif Ove Andsnes ‘came very late’ to Mozart’s piano concertos: ‘I somehow was not mature enough to enjoy this music fully … now it is the greatest joy to play.’ Mozart’s gift, unmatched by anyone since, was to make music of exquisite beauty and craftsmanship appear effortless; but so much lies underneath the trademark serene simplicity.

Programme

Mozart Piano Concerto No 20

Bruckner Symphony No 3

Performers

Daniel Harding conductor

Leif Ove Andsnes piano

Daniel Harding and the London Symphony Orchestra at the Barbican – 20th March 2016

2016harding

Schumann’s music suggests the struggle between good and evil at the heart of Goethe’s work, as well as Faust’s tumultuous search for enlightenment and peace.

From the work’s dark and tense overture to its elegant and tranquil conclusion, Schumann’s oratorio opens a world combining horror opera, German song and church music. Described as Schumann’s magnum opus, the work is so huge that he never saw all three parts performed in the same concert.

Daniel Harding, the London Symphony Orchestra and Chorus are joined by the exceptional baritone Christian Gerhaher in the title role, drawing on his expertise as a profound lieder performer.

Programme 

Schumann Scenes from Goethe’s ‘Faust’

Performers

Daniel Harding conductor

Christian Gerhaher Faust

Christiane Karg Gretchen

Alastair Miles Mephistopheles

Daniel Harding and the London Symphony Orchestra at the Barbican – 16th December 2015

harding (1)

For their second concert together, Daniel Harding and Maria João Pires turn to the middle of Beethoven’s five piano concertos and the last of Bruckner’s nine symphonies.

Written during a busy period, Beethoven did not have time to finish writing out his Third Concerto, instead performing the premiere largely from memory. The result was a surprising and imaginative work that pushed forward the way in which composers wrote for piano.

Programme 

Beethoven Piano Concerto No 3
Bruckner Symphony No 9 (1894 Ed Nowak 1951 + Finale (unfinished). Performing Version by Samale-Phillips-Cohrs-Mazzuca (1983–2012)

Performers

Daniel Harding conductor
Maria João Pires piano
London Symphony Orchestra
