Event Details

Description

Liszt’s symphonic poem Orpheus was inspired by an Etruscan vase that depicted the hero as a civilizing symbol of beauty in a brutal world. “I fell in love with his first symphonic poems,” wrote Saint-Saens about Liszt in 1869, “which pointed out to me the path in which I was to find later my Danse Macabre… and other works.” He went on to arrange Orpheus for piano trio. Brahms fell in love with the music of Hungary as a teenaged pianist, and later wrote Gypsy-flavored dances to entertain friends. Dohnanyi’s powerful and symphonic final chamber work is reminiscent of Brahms, with its rich romantic textures. The timpani “plays well with others” – but Péter Eötvös gives the lion of the orchestra a star turn in a bombastic, visceral work that sound-worlds apart from the other works on the program.
