SPIEGEL ZAAL 13.40-14.05 UUR - Frederike Berntsen in conversation with Mathilde Wantenaar
Mathilde Wantenaar writes a violin concerto for Simone Lamsma. This afternoon, chief conductor Karina Canellakis will also conduct Bruckner's colossal Eighth Symphony.
" Mathilde's musical voice is authentic ".
Violinist Simone Lamsma did not have to think for long when the Saturday Matinee asked her who she would like to play a new violin concerto by. Her answer: "Mathilde Wantenaar", the young Dutch composer who made her Matineede debut in 2019 with the choral work Dit zijn de bleeke, bleeklichte weken, on a text by Herman Gorter. Asked about her choice, Lamsma says: "Wantenaar's music is colourful and immediately appeals to my imagination. What struck me immediately when I heard her work is the directness of its expression. Mathilde's musical voice is authentic. She writes in a language with which I feel very connected.
Bruckner's Eighth Symphony
Wantenaar's new Violin Concerto is followed by Anton Bruckner's Eighth Symphony - with its enormous Adagio. Hallelujah', the Austrian composer scrawled on his note paper in 1885 as he approached the double bar of the colossal work. A series of radical revisions would follow, before he completed the score in 1890.
