  • Where's Runnicles: EIF 2013 - The Opera and Drama Programme
    I saw but did not review was interesting but didn t blow me away This time they bring a version of Hamlet making use of the film of Richard Burton s 1964 performance As I have had occasion to say before the list of reimagined Shakespeares at the International Festival which have been complete disasters is a very long one I actually doubt this will be added to the list because my sense is the Wooster Group are likely to be interesting the big question is will they engage my heart The run is accompanied by four film showings of other Wooster Group performances again an opportunity for further immersion Teatrocinema were first at the Festival in 2010 with an adaptation of Baricco s Without Blood The mingling of live action and cinema was rather disappointing as we reported at the time This time they have adapted a novel by Regis Jauffret unknown to me On the basis of my experience in 2010 I would suggest waiting for the reviews on this one Also at the Festival in 2010 though I missed her on that occasion was Meredith Monk with Songs of Ascension She returns this time with what is described as her latest music theatre work On Behalf of Nature This has clearly beguiled some see this LA Times review but I must admit whenever I see a statement like you don t know what the words are my heart sinks a little But then I seem to be often the odd one out in thinking that text continues to matter rather a lot in live performance More about Monk s approach can be gleaned from this article I have bought a ticket for this because I ll go and hear anything once but I am a little sceptical Finally we have the Beijing People s Art Theatre with a version of Coriolanus I cannot find any reviews of this at all so all I can only report what is in the Festival brochure that it features two of China s leading heavy metal bands I have heard of neither of them but am not of course in their target market and proposes to re interpret Shakespeare s tragedy for the 21st century see my many previous remarks about reinterpreted Shakespeare at the EIF I imagine this will be unforgettable but it seems to me more than likely to be so for all the wrong reasons Altogether it is another abundant year for Drama at the Festival but I do have exactly the same criticism as I made last year This is that again Jonathan Mills has decided against one world class straight production of a major work The one thing with his Drama programmes is that he has not to my mind managed to find a substitute for Peter Stein and it appears in the last couple of years that he has decided not to go in that direction I continue to feel this is a bit of a shame Overall though this is a varied and exciting Festival in both these genres Roll on August Labels Edinburgh Festival EIF 2013 Festival Theatre Finn 4 comments Tam Pollard 22 March 2013 at 23 43 I would just add to my brother s comments that I did see Porgy but found it a little mixed and not of the heights achieved in Opera de Lyon s 2006 visit It too featured video projection heavily not always to good effect Review here I am also highly puzzled by the description of Fidelio as bold and unless they ve wreaked havoc with the music it s difficult to see how that could possibly be an accurate description That said Dresden s late 80s Fidelio could be argued to have been bold but only due to the political circumstances it was performed in and the comments it made on them Reply Delete Tam Pollard 23 March 2013 at 09 00 A quick Dance addendum Neither of us is a dance specialist but in the interest of full coverage a few things catch the eye Scottish Ballet s Dance Odysseys an interesting selection sadly the one I m most keen to see Pierrot Lunaire clashes with other things Benjamin Millepied who was responsible for the choreography in Black Swan brings his company L A Dance Project It looks interesting and might just fit into one of my few free nights Reply Delete Finn Pollard 6 April 2013 at 20 05 We now have two reviews in English for the Opera de Lyon Fidelio I am even less optimistic about the production than I was to start with http www ft com cms s 2 89e87af8 9abe 11e2 b982 00144feabdc0 html

  • Where's Runnicles: Mariss Jansons and the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra PLAY
    the Cleveland Orchestra paired it with Mahler s seventh during their memorable visit 3 years ago They played it well enough and Jansons control at the start using just his fingers was impressive but I must leave it to wiser persons to judge the interpretation The real treat came in the second half with the Shostakovich 5th One his more accessible coming as it does from a period when he needed to curry favour following the disgrace that Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk had brought The slow opening movement was beautifully played the same rich textures that had marked out the Beethoven present here and the same fierce power when called for Jansons brought a real wit and panache to the second movement while giving us a darkly haunting largo The finale was nothing short of electric Jansons chose a brisk tempo but the orchestra held up impressively where a lesser band might have stumbled It was exciting from the opening and only got better I haven t yet sampled any of his readings on disc but have spied the EMI cycle which features a number of orchestras including the Bavarians cheaply part of me wonders whether I really need more to set beside the Haitink Kondrashin and Rostropovich cycles and the part of me that was listening to this performance says hell yes As I read the paragraph back I realise what a poor review it is But then it s always harder to write about something that s blown you away For a start you get swept up whereas in a dire reading you have ample time to sit back and note the million reasons why From the reception those present seemed to have agreed We got another two encores though the way the symphony finished I really wish we hadn t I have no idea what they were I wish that conductors would sometimes announce them the note in my programme says Mozart for the first and something else for the second Anyone reading this who knows better is very welcome to share that knowledge All in all two extremely impressive nights I won t soon forget So much so that at the start of November I shall be catching this team in London from Haydn s 101st symphony and Mahler s 5th The playing of the orchestra was exceptional not least their ability in the quietest passages which I think is always one thing that separates the good from the great and ranks alongside the Berliners and the Clevelanders as one of the absolute finest it has been my privilege to hear live Jansons conducting was something special to watch too Every movement gained a response as opposed to some whose flouncing gestures seem irrelevant There were one or two fascinating moments when he seemed to stop altogether almost as if saying you know what to do here you should be paying attention to that anything I add at this stage will only get in the way I feel luck to have seen and heard this and if you get the chance you should too Labels Concert Reviews Edinburgh Festival EIF 2007 Tam Usher Hall No comments Post a Comment Newer Post Older Post Home Subscribe to Post Comments

  • Where's Runnicles: Here's Runnicles with Mahler 8 and the EIF 2010 closing concert (or, list of lifelong dreams you are now one shorter)
    heard Runnicles conduct live There is no doubt in my mind that he is most at home in the the opera house and in controlling large forces Even so the achievement of last night completely eclipsed his Mahler 3 at the Proms itself eclipsed by the Cleveland peformance in Edinburgh Not a weak link in the chain as far as I am concerned though for my generation nothing will surpass the epoch making event that was Gibsons performance in the 60 s for which the Festival Chorus was created and in which I believe DR sang He is a worthy successor and it was good to see Lady Gibson in the audience Reply Delete Tam Pollard 6 September 2010 at 13 48 Runnicles was indeed in the boys choir in that 60s performance I asked him about the experience when I interviewed him but I forgot to mention it in the review Reply Delete Elsa 8 September 2010 at 10 55 As one of the 300 as at Thermopylae it certainly felt OK the last time the EFC did it was also with DR in 1994 with RSNO who didn t seem to like him This was in Arthur Oldham s 2nd period as chorusmaster and there was a press photocall with DR Arthur and those of the EFC who had been in the inaugural Mahler 8 in 1965 There are now only 2 left in EFC who were in that performance one now a retired consultant who then was a medical student and the other who was in the boys chorus now in his 50s Reply Delete Anonymous 27 February 2011 at 12 44 Praise BE this is to be the cover CD for the April BBC Music Magazine on sale 17 March Reply Delete Stephen Whitaker 9 January 2013 at 13 18 I ve just got hold of the CD and sadly the sound isn t very crisp and clear so that what was obviously a great performance comes through the speakers as rather dull Reply Delete Add comment Load more Newer Post Older Post Home Subscribe to Post Comments Atom
