The Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra is proud to introduce a new talent on the cello: Pablo Ferrández from Madrid. Though only 28 years old, this multiple prizewinner can already point to a stellar career and currently holds a scholarship from the Anne-Sophie Mutter Foundation. Playing his sonorous Stradivarius, he will give his BRSO début in the popular A minor Concerto by Camille Saint-Saëns, a brilliant and melodious pièce de résistance for every cellist. In the first part of the concert Daniele Gatti, music director of the Rome Opera and a BRSO associate for over 25 years, will remain in the French cultural milieu and introduce his programme with a string study by that magician in sound, Henri Dutilleux. This grand seigneur of French music wrote his Mystère de l’instant in 1989 for the Swiss patron and conductor Paul Sacher. With its dashes of cimbalom and percussion, Dutilleux’s homage to Bartók indeed summons up the “mystery of the instant”. The evening’s magnum opus is Dmitri Shostakovich’s monumental Fifth Symphony, with which the composer, hounded by Soviet officialdom, allegedly sought to rehabilitate himself in 1937. But the over-the-top final euphoria speaks an entirely different language.
