BRAHMS VIOLIN CONCERTO+ROMEO AND JULIET BY TCHAIKOVSKY

Palau de la Música Catalana

Monday, 26/04/2021 20:00

Throughout the history of music, many of the concerts for solo instruments have been written with some virtuoso in mind. This is the case of the Johannes Brahms Violin Concerto, premiered in 1879. A work written for his friend and violinist Joseph Joachim, from whom he asked for advice, and which contains many passages with great technical difficulty. Another great violinist, Pablo Sarasate, called this work ‘the concerto against the violin’.

A year after this date, another younger composer, Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, completed the third and final version of the Romeo and Juliet Overture-Fantasy. Bellini, Berlioz, Gounod and Prokofiev are some of the composers who throughout history have written music based on Shakespeare’s well-known text.

The initial idea to set music to The Lovers of Verona came from the leader of the “Group of Five”. Mili Balakirev wrote a letter to Tchaikovsky in 1869 not only suggesting the composition of an overture to the story of Romeo and Juliet, but also including musical examples and possible ideal tonalities. At the time, the young and insecure Pyotr Ilyich accepted his mentor’s advice and even sent him the finished score for comment. The premiere of this first version took place in 1870.

Ten years later, a mature Tchaikovsky, confident in his musical style, changed the introduction and modified the structure of the work until he achieved the version we can enjoy.

SCHUBERT'S TRAGIC SYMPHONY AND BEETHOVEN'S TRIPLE CONCERTO

ANDREA MARCON & OCM

Palau de la Música Catalana

Wednesday, 2/06/2021 20:00

Continuing with the celebrations of 'Beethoven Year', this is a performance of the Triple Concerto for violin, cello and piano in C major, Opus 56. At the time, it was a novelty because of its unusual combination of a string trio with orchestra, and was the only concert by Ludwig van Beethoven for more than one solo instrument. After its premiere in 1808, there is no record of any more interpretations in the composer's life, and it seems that it was not very well received by the public of the time.

The concert programme is completed with Franz Schubert's Symphony No. 4, written in 1816 when the musician was just 19 years old. The nickname of 'Tragic' given by the author himself gives false expectations about the character of the work. The ‘Tragic’, which was Schubert's first symphony written in a minor key, was not released until 20 years after his death. Musically, we find references to works by previous musicians: the opening chords remind us of Beethoven's own Coriolan Overture and later we hear moments similar to the chaos of The Creation of Joseph Haydn.
