Looking ahead to the summer...
As I emerge from the morass of bureacracy surrounding university exams, the principal task of the summer is to work on the manuscript for my next book. That said, there will be a good deal of music in performance to which I can look forward, as well as the living hell of London during the vainglorious Olympic Games to dread. The programme will doubtless prove subject to change, but here is what lies in store until early September (i.e., the end of the Proms):
What remains of June
Wigmore Hall recital from Susan Graham and Malcolm Martineau (tonight)
Le nozze di Figaro
at the Royal College of Music
Wigmore Hall piano recital, Debussy and Liszt, from Bertrand Chamayou
(British theatrical knights Antonio Pappano and David McVicar and a starry cast, albeit minus Jonas Kaufmann)
Wigmore Hall: Thomas Oliemans and Malcolm Martineau
: Mahler, Strauss, Duparc, and Debussy
Wigmore Hall: Stephen Kovacevich plays Beethoven and Schubert
Prom 9: West-Eastern Divan Orchestra/Barenboim - Beethoven and Boulez
Prom 10: WEDO/Barenboim - Beethoven and Boulez
(again from the Royal Opera, but this time in concert, again alas without Jonas Kaufmann)
Prom 12: WEDO/Barenboim - Beethoven and Boulez
Prom 13: WEDO/Barenboim - Beethoven and Boulez
Prom 17 (late night) WEDO
- Beethoven piano quintet and
Le marteau sans maître
with Hilary Summers, from the baton-less hands of the composer himself
Prom 18: WEDO/Barenboim - Beethoven's Ninth Symphony
(apparently this and
are somehow related to the Olympics, but few of us understand how or why)
from Opera Holland Park
, alas for the last time (previous reviews
). This time Philippe Jordan, rather than Daniele Gatti, will conduct.
The Flying Dutchman
, in a new production by Jan Phillip Glogen, conducted by Christian Thielemann
A second chance to see
, from Andris Nelsons and Hans Neuenfels
An extremely rare opportunity to hear the first version of
Ariadne auf Naxos
, replete with
Le bourgeois gentilhomme
, from the Vienna Philharmonic and Daniel Harding, directed by Sven-Erik Bechtolf (but again, alas, without Jonas Kaufmann)
Two Schubert sonatas from Daniel Barenboim
VPO/Muti - Liszt and Berlioz's
, directed and choreographed by Aletta Collins, conducted by Sir Simon Rattle, and at last, with Jonas Kaufmann
Renaud Capuçon/Salzburg Mozarteum Orchestra/Ivor Bolton - Mozart and Haydn
, the VPO conducted by Daniele Gatti, and directed by Damiano Michieletto
Beethoven from Maurizio Pollini
(the final three sonatas once again!)
Bernd Alois Zimmermann's masterpiece,
, the VPO conducted by Ingo Metzmacher, in a new staging by Alvis Hermanis
Hänsel und Gretel
from Co-opera Co.
Mittwoch aus Licht
from Birmingham Opera
(not quite the premiere, but one of the premiere performances)
Prom 57: Zimmermann/Gustav Mahler YO/Gatti - Wagner, Berg, Strauss, and Ravel
Christine Schäfer recites
, along with Debussy's sonata for flute, viola, and harp
