about the programme

One subject dominates the ecstatic scores that Daniele Gatti has chosen for this concert: love’s boundless rapture. For Don Juan, the suave ladies’ man, Strauss took his inspiration from a poem by Lenau: “O magic realm, illimited, eternal, / Of gloried women, loveliness supernal! / Fain would I, in the storm of stressful bliss, / Expire upon the last one’s lingering kiss!” Things that flew a thousandfold to Don Juan were denied to the autobiographical hero of Berlioz’s Symphonie fantastique, who seeks his beloved in vain. In his mind she becomes a torturous idée fixe until he turns to drugs and takes part in a hallucinatory witches’ sabbath featuring his own execution. Both men – Don Juan and Berlioz’s hero – constantly cross red lines. And Die Meistersinger? Here the hero sings of love with divine inspiration and wins the prize – in this case, anachronistically enough, a woman named Eve.
