Petrenko conducts the Sacre

Programme

Frank Martin The Four Seasons
Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky Rococo Variations
Igor Stravinsky Le sacre du printemps

This concert opens with music by the extremely fascinating Swiss-Dutch composer Frank Martin (1890-1974). In Les quatre Éléments (The four elements), he does not so much paint a picture of the elements themselves, but rather of the way in which man perceives the world. Do you know that when I play Mozart, I feel more cheerful and younger?' wrote Tchaikovsky. That is why he paid a distant homage to Mozart with his Variations on a Rococo Theme, a bold work for cello and orchestra, elegant, graceful and dance-like. Franz Liszt was at the premiere and said: 'This is real music! Then the hall is filled with the raw sounds of the Spring Offering by Russian Igor Stravinsky.
