  • Where's Runnicles: BBC Proms 2007
    like the 3rd 5th or 7th Later that evening Pierre Laurent Aimard and the Mahler Chamber Orchestra perform Beethoven s second piano concerto in Prom 54 This is promising in light of his fine survey of the concertos with Harnoncourt and the Chamber Orchestra of Europe but he also going to be conducting Haydn s 102nd symphony and it will be interesting to see how he makes the jump Prom 55 brings more from Hatink and the Concertgebouw and this time the real treat Wagner Haitink s Wagner is rather special there is some lovely music in his recording of the Ring which is at times revelatory What a shame that it s spoilt by the Brunnhilde of Eva Marton Here we get the prelude to act I of Parsifal and the Good Friday music as well as the prelude and liebestod from Tristan along with some Debussy Prom 59 features another orchestra with whom Haitink has been closely associated in recent years the LSO They come under the baton of their new music director Valery Gergiev playing a programme of Tchaikovsky and Prokofiev It will be interesting listening their recent CD cycle of the Prokofiev symphonies didn t always have the fire that was present in the finest readings Of course more interesting will be to hear how he fares next year when his programme seems to rely less on Russian composers He is apparently doing all the Mahler symphonies I d be going if I were based in London Another big European orchestra comes a few days later for a pair of concerts the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra under their director Mariss Jansons fresh from their appearances in Edinburgh In Prom 60 gives us Strauss s Also sprach Zarathustra and Sibelius s second symphony and Prom 62 is Honegger s 3rd symphony and Beethoven s 9th making its second appearance this year and this is surely the one the smart money is on Prom 64 brings Belohlavek and the BBC Symphony Orchestra for a commission made for the night s soloist percussionist Evelyn Glennie as well as Mahler s 1st symphony What a shame we aren t having this from Jansons who is a master of it Belohlavek s Mahle hasn t really grabbed mer he played a rather disappointing 9th at the 2005 Edinburgh festival More promising is Proms Saturday Matinee 4 which is an all Britten programme from Edward Gardner who has recently been doing fine things at ENO and the Nash Ensemble That evening comes the first of two programmes from Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra In Prom 64 they play Ives Strauss and Shostakovich in Prom 65 they bring the last Mahler of the year the 7th I recently acquired their disc of the 5th and found it rather disappointingly dull so it will be interesting to see they get on with this far trickier work My final highlights are the two programmes from Barenboim and the Vienna Philharmonic Prom 66 features Schubert s playful Mozartian 5th symphony and Bruckner s 4th which was probably the highlight of his CD cycle with the Berlin Philharmonic Prom 68 is more adventurous featuring the music of Bartok Ligeti Enescu and Kodaly There are doubtless some who wonder why the next three nights featuring the Leipzig Gewandhaus under Chailly and the Boston Symphony under Levine aren t getting a proper mention The truth is that I have never cared much for either conductor Levine is I feel particularly overrated I don t know anyone who can make Wagner duller I am not plugging the last night either I m not a fan It will be interesting to see how Belohlavek copes certainly he can t manage as badly as Slatkin used to famous last words Of course the list is far from exhaustive To find that you must trawl through the unfriendly Proms website or lay down 6 for the printed programme rather a lot given the proportion taken up by advertising There are a number of fine and intriguing things that I haven t mentioned but the above is what I shall be making an effort to hear or at least tape as on many of the nights I ll be otherwise engaged with the small festivals we have up here Labels BBC Proms Donald Runnicles Edinburgh Festival EIF 2005 EIF 2007 Mackerras Tam No comments Post a Comment Newer Post Older Post Home Subscribe to Post

  • Where's Runnicles: Review: The Disastrous ENO Kismet
    the case and act accordingly If you are going to hire the hot new choreographer on the scene it may be a good idea to discover whether his style will actually suit the show It may have been permissible a year ago to take the risk it is crazy if no one in the show went to see his Cabaret when it opened in October and it is inexcusable if the management saw the show and still kept him working on this production I saw Cabaret at Christmas and it was blatantly apparent that this choreographer has his own way that takes no account of setting or music How he won an Olivier remains a mystery to me A disaster was eminently predictable Next we come on to the direction by all means hire a famous American but consider whether he has any relationship with the choreographer and more seriously whether he has ever had to handle a company this size his biog and the quality of the performance suggests he has not The production team had the presumption to take a bow They should have been booed off the stage I certainly tried I grew up going to the opera at ENO I love the company I love the Coliseum and I want to see both survive But this is a prime example of the kind of idiocies they have been prone too since firing Nicholas Payne and losing Paul Daniel Edward Gardner has the talent to rescue them musically it remains to be seen if the management has the capacity to be rescued On this showing it does not look promising Labels Coliseum Finn Musical Theatre Reviews No comments Post a Comment Newer Post Older Post Home Subscribe to Post Comments Atom Search Where s

  • Where's Runnicles: Osmo Vanska conducts Sibelius
    would have expected He builds a fine momentum and there is certainly no shortage of power to the climaxes But he loses something of the pulse midway through To be sure he is better recorded than Davis on LSO Live but with much less punch The 5th symphony begins majestically with nicely rounded phrasing Vanska takes a relatively brisk tempo and the orchestra play wonderfully Once again though dynamics are extreme The reading to me lacks sweep and he doesn t build the momentum as well as he might But the close of the first movement is particularly nice and there is a great depth to the orchestral sound the closing bars are especially sensuous The andante that follows is not very slow indeed I wish he would hang about a little at times to savour some more of the beauty of the score but the playing is nicely delicate The transition into the finale is very poorly judged so much so that it almost feels like an editing error Vanska is very very quick but the orchestra keeps up fine But that doesn t really matter as the pace is too fast and something is lost He does slow up a little as the main theme emerges but it lacks grandeur this is more glaring given how fine the work s opening bars were in this regard And as a result what should be a magnificent climax falls rather flat All in all a disappointing reading and probably my low point of the cycle Of the fillers En Saga is very fine Finlandia is nice but lacks the excitement of Oramo or Barbirolli Pohjola s Daughter and Valse Triste are both good too though the dynamic range in the latter is especially pronounced The sixth is better and opens at a middling tempo beautifully and very quietly played and Vanska really brings out the different musical lines The pace picks up in line with what one might expect from this cycle but I would prefer a little more lyricism The winds are once again excellent and there is a nice chill to the strings The transition to the second movement is poor also something of a hallmark of this set admittedly this is not strictly a transition in the way some of the movements are but the way this ends and the next beings sit uneasily with each other The second movement as a whole doesn t really work as Vanska takes it somewhere between edgy and beauty There is a nice spring to the vivace but in some ways it is a little rushed He brings the third movement to a fine frenzied close but it comes out of nowhere The finale has some lovely tones but is again rushed Dynamic contrasts are again extreme The orchestra plays wonderfully throughout bringing a real depth to the climaxes And yet that extra something is missing and he doesn t quite seem to judge the end right The opening swagger of the seventh is particularly pronounced especially the basses Vanska takes the opening andante relatively slowly Again the playing is fine and unlike so often elsewhere he actual seems to savour the score and build themes There is a wonderful flow no Mahler 9 syndrome here Unfortunately the trombones are not prominently enough balanced and the quicker moments as so often on this set feel really rushed But when he slows up there is a magnificent majesty And so the work continues lurching unsatisfyingly from slowly majestic to over hurried The feeling of journey s end at the work s close is very satisfying and yet at the same time strangely uneasy since it doesn t feel like he s taken us that far and the closing bars seem to come out of nowhere The disc rounds off with a very fine reading of Tapiola Of the other works the violin concerto is okay but didn t seem anything special to me The Wood Nymph is very good but the Lemminkainen suite is rather patchy The box also contains some of Jarvi s recordings some of which are nice enough to have me wondering if I should add his set to this thread But then Karelia was very poor feeling almost comically jocular And elsewhere in works such as The Tempest or Pelleas and Melisande he is just rather dull There are still five or so discs including one or two smaller works from Vanksa and plenty of choral and chamber music I have yet to explore on this set However it has been something of a disappointment At its finest Kullervo and to a lesser extent the 4th it is exceptional but elsewhere it doesn t really live up to the promise of those moments It makes me wonder if Vanska is one of those artists who just doesn t translate as well into the recording studio as opposed to the concert hall certainly I will be listening with interest to their Prom all Sibelius including the 7th However even given its relative cheapness I m not really left feeling this set was great value for money But the Kullervo available separately is well worth seeking out as probably is the 4th Labels CD Reviews Tam No
