Strauss' Vier Letzte Lieder & Fauré Requiem - Sydney Symphony Orchestra

Richard Strauss harnesses music’s ability to express the inexpressible in Death and Transfiguration, a moving journey into a blazing eternity. And Strauss recalls this youthful work in the serene farewell of Four Last Songs. Strauss’s late masterpiece is sensuously in touch with the joys of life, even as life slips away. The songs luxuriate in the autumnal richness of an opulent orchestra and the beauty of the soprano voice, here the exquisite Erin Wall.

Gabriel Fauré’s Requiem for soprano, baritone, choir and orchestra remembers the dead and consoles the living with music of poignant elegance and heavenly beauty. It is one of the most beloved sacred works in the repertoire – timeless, contemplative and radiant.

Donald Runnicles conducts.

Britten - Peter Grimes - Bergen Philharmonic on Tour

Fall under the spell of a landmark British opera in this acclaimed semi-staged production by the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra.

Edward Gardner conducts and Stuart Skelton takes the lead role.

A gripping human drama centering on a mysterious antihero, swept along by glittering waves of expressive music, Britten’s enduringly compelling work has often been named the greatest British opera of all time.

This winter at Royal Festival Hall, Australian tenor Stuart Skelton returns to a role for which he has received widespread international praise.

The Sunday Times has called him ‘the Grimes de nos jours’ and The Guardian names his interpretation of the part ‘the best around today’.His performances as Grimes with English National Opera, for which he was nominated for an Olivier Award, were conducted by Edward Gardner during his ten-year tenure as ENO’s Music Director.

The Guardian commented, ‘it's Gardner who pulls all the threads together in conducting that is effortlessly vital, marvellously lyrical and searingly intense.’

Gardner and the Bergen Philharmonic are joined by an all-star cast, including Erin Wall as schoolmistress Ellen Orford, described by The Financial Times as ‘a soprano of radiance, pristine beauty and tingling top notes’.

Roderick Williams, praised by The New York Times for his ‘rich, burnished baritone’, appears as Captain Balstrode and Susan Bickley – ‘resplendent’ (The Guardian) – as Auntie.

Three choruses take the stage for an opera known for its rousing massed vocals. The semi-staged production features Rostin Wexelsen’s strikingly suggestive minimalist design.

Presented in collaboration with Bergen National Opera. Originally presented in 2017, in collaboration with Bergen International Festival and Bergen National Opera.

Mahler's Eighth Symphony - San Francisco Symphony Orchestra

After 25 years, an historic chapter in music draws to an end as Michael Tilson Thomas conducts his final concerts as music director of the San Francisco Symphony. A partnership which sparked radical transformation—not only for the orchestra, but for San Francisco—the SFS now sits at the vanguard of ensembles, finding white heat at the intersection of community, artistic daring, and tradition. Join MTT, the San Francisco Symphony, the SFS Chorus, and an all-star cast of soloists in this final victory lap featuring Mahler’s epic Symphony of a Thousand. It was in 2010—one century after Mahler conducted the first performance—that MTT told NPR’s Guy Raz about his personal journey into the symphony: “I began to realize,” he said, “the incredible depth of humanity that the piece has—how much humor, how much wit, how much parody, how much astonishing inventiveness.” That same year, MTT and the SF Symphony’s Mahler Eight recording won three Grammy Awards.

Vivier - Lonely Child - National Arts Centre Orchestra

Alexander Shelley and the NAC Orchestra offer a French-inspired program featuring contrasting works by jazz-influenced French composer Maurice Ravel and Quebec’s doomed visionary Claude Vivier.

 In his  Mother Goose Suite, Ravel takes the listener gently by the hand, leading us into the world of fairy tales, culminating in a glittering soundgarden of magical childhood memories.

In Vivier’s Lonely Child, acclaimed Canadian soprano Erin Wall inhabits both the innocent world of a child and the often-difficult world of an adult, giving voice to our search for simple and unconditional love.

Calgary-born pianist Jan Lisiecki has become an international sensation, winning a coveted Echo Klassik Award for his 2016 recording of works by Chopin.  He performs Ravel’s dazzling, jazz-influenced Concerto in G, deftly navigating its textures and harmonies, with virtuosic technique that will leave you breathless.

Beethoven's 9th Symphony - Vancouver Symphony Orchestra

The Unanswered Question by American composer Charles Ives poses that most vexing of existential questions: What is the meaning of existence? Unanswerable, it remains unanswered. Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 has become a universal anthem for hope, joy, friendship, and optimism for the future. This extraordinary symphony, called by many the greatest piece of music ever written, was the centerpiece of an historic concert by the Berlin Philharmonic on Christmas in 1989 that celebrated the fall of the Berlin Wall, with the great Leonard Bernstein conducting. A fitting end indeed to the 2019 VSO Spring Festival: Music and Power.

Faust - Washington National Opera

Is the freedom of youth worth an eternity in hell? It is to the aging Faust, who makes a pact with Méphistophélès to exchange his soul for Earth’s mortal pleasures. With his youth restored, Faust woos the lovely Marguerite, but his troubles are far from over. Along the seductive path to riches and power, Faust realizes his salvation is tragically bound to others, including those he loves most.

WNO takes a look at this French classic with a riveting production featuring a storybook aesthetic and phenomenal cast. From Marguerite's celebrated “Jewel Song” to the beloved soldiers’ chorus, Gounod’s score propels Goethe’s tale of redemption and damnation into a dizzying dance with the devil that will be impossible to forget.

Shipwrecked, he gets safely to shore only after promising Neptune to sacrifice the first person he sees—but it’s his son, Idamante. As Idomeneo agonizes over the catastrophe facing him, Idamante woos one princess, the lovely Ilia, and is madly pursued by another, the jealous Elettra.
