导赏  本场音乐会上的三首作品均出自俄罗斯作曲家之手,也许在寒冷的季节,聆听俄罗斯音乐里火热的激情是最能驱寒的生活方式了。斯特拉文斯基曾根据安徒生的童话故事写下歌剧《夜莺》,他先是在1908年完成了第一幕,随后又在1913-1914年完成了后两幕,中间间隔的几年时间里他创作了震惊世人的芭蕾三部曲(《火鸟》、《彼得鲁什卡》与《春之祭》),也正是因为这段经历使得他开始怀疑是否还有必要把歌剧《夜莺》完成,因为他已经决心成为一名纯粹的交响音乐作曲家了。不过,最终斯特拉文斯基还是完成了这部作品,同时几年后他用歌剧里的音乐元素创作了交响诗《夜莺之歌》——事实证明,这首交响诗是远比歌剧原作更加优秀的作品,也是如今音乐会舞台上除了芭蕾三部曲之外最常演奏的斯特拉文斯基作品之一。

帕格尼尼主题狂想曲是拉赫玛尼诺夫在风景如画的瑞士琉森湖边写下的,作曲家在湖边的塞纳别墅里度过了好几个夏天,在这里写下了帕格尼尼主题狂想曲与第三交响曲两部杰作。在聆听帕格尼尼主题狂想曲最优美的第18变奏时,听者很自然地会联想起月色倒映在湖面上的美景。这部作品是1934年的夏天在瑞士诞生的,同年11月,拉赫玛尼诺夫带着新作来到美国马里兰州的巴尔的摩,在这里与斯托科夫斯基指挥的费城交响乐团一同进行了首演,从那一天起,古典音乐的世界里又多了一部杰作,钢琴家们也多了一个棘手的挑战。如今,只有第一流的钢琴家才能够挑战这部作品。

穆索尔斯基最著名的作品《图画展览会》原本是为钢琴独奏所写的,作曲家在出席纪念画家哈特曼的画展时获得灵感,以哈特曼的作品为标题写下了一组高难度的钢琴曲。可以说,穆索尔斯基的钢琴原版已经是了不起的杰作了,但拉威尔配器的版本却让其艺术价值更上一层楼,同时也掀起了为“图展”配器的热潮,直到今日,新配器的版本依然层出不穷。聆听拉威尔配器的《图画展览会》,我们就能理解为什么它会成为过去一个世纪里这么多作曲家的灵感源泉:原作本就精彩纷呈的旋律,加上大师级的配器手法,达到了1+1>2的效果,变幻莫测的配器手法让人不由自主地凝神屏息,生怕因错过其中的细节而悔恨。

Duncan WARD, conductor

British conductor Duncan Ward has established himself as one of the most exciting and versatile conductors of his generation and enjoys working regularly with some of the world’s leading ensembles and opera houses. Duncan is Chief Conductor Designate of philharmonie zuidnederland, a position he will take up in September 2021 for an initial three season contract. In January 2020, he was appointed by Festival d’Aix-en-Provence as Music Director of the Mediterranean Youth Orchestra, a position which he holds until 2023.

Recent highlights have included engagements with Staatskapelle Dresden, London Symphony Orchestra, Deutsche 

Kammerphilharmonie Bremen, Aurora Orchestra, Staatsorchester Stuttgart, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, Finnish Radio Symphony, Orchestre de la Suisse Romande and Gürzenich Orchester. At the beginning of the 2019/20 season, Duncan gave the German premiere of Brett Dean’s acclaimed Hamlet at Oper Köln.

From 2012-14 he was Conducting Scholar of the Berliner Philharmoniker Orchester-Akademie, to which he was appointed on the recommendation of Sir Simon Rattle. And from 2015-2017, he was Principal Conductor of Sinfonia Viva – one of the UK’s most dynamic ensembles. He also held the post of Associate Conductor of the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain.

Plans for the 2020/21 season include debuts with the Rotterdam Philharmonic, Zürcher Kammerorchester, Orchestre Philharmonique Royal de Liège, Moscow Philharmonic, Orchestre Philharmonique de Strasbourg, Orquestra Simfónica de Barcelona i Nacional de Catalunya, Musikkollegium Winterthur, Bochum Symphoniker & NFM Wroclaw Philharmonic. In addition, he will make return visits to London Symphony Orchestra, Münchener Kammerorchester, Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, Royal Northern Sinfonia and Oper Köln for a production of Rigoletto.

Praised equally for his ‘viscerally exciting’ performances of Beethoven and Haydn symphonies as his committed and sensitive interpretations of demanding new works, Duncan is passionate about a hugely wide-ranging repertoire. He is as at home working with period instrument ensembles such as Balthasar Neumann, elite chamber ensembles such as Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen and the symphony orchestras of the BBC as directing the world’s foremost contemporary music ensembles like Ensemble Modern. This is not to mention his acclaimed work with the homeless performers of Streetwise Opera, including a special performance at the Royal Opera House as part of the London 2012 Olympics Festival, or directing 500 amateur musicians in a supersize Riley 'In C' at the Elbphilharmonie, Indian classical collaborations with Anoushka Shankar, and with celebrated Nordic folk band Dreamers' Circus.

Operatic engagements have included Dutch National Opera for a double bill of Bernstein’s Trouble in Tahiti and Macmillan’s 

Clemency; Don Pasquale, Cendrillon and Hamlet for Glyndebourne-on-Tour, Death in Venice with Mark Padmore at the St Endellion Festival, La Traviata at Baden-Baden Festspielhaus, the Chinese premiere of Peter Grimes with a stellar international cast and London Voices, Saariaho’s La Passion de Simone at Deutsche Oper in a new production by Peter Sellars, a Barber of Seville for young audiences at the Salzburg Festival, a chamber version of Manon Lescaut with the Berliner hilharmoniker at the Baden-Baden Easter Festival, and opera galas with singers from Venera Gimadieva to Rolando Villazon.

Opportunities during his two years at the Berliner Philharmoniker included assisting and rehearsal conducting for Die Zauberflöte, Gurre-Lieder, Die Walküre, Le Grand Macabre, Britten’s War Requiem, G.F.Haas in vain and premieres by Wolfgang Rihm and Benedict Mason. He additionally conducted the Britten 100th Birthday concert with members of the Berliner Philharmoniker and Ian Bostridge, a Webern concert and production of ‘Kleine’ Manon Lescaut with the Principal Players of the orchestra at their Baden-Baden Easter Festival, and a special concert 'Violins of Hope' with the Berlin Philharmonic Strings to mark the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz.

Following a month working in India in 2006, Duncan subsequently co-founded the WAM Foundation which sent young UK musicians each year to teach Western classical music in schools across Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata and Kerala. The charity attracted the attention of the great late Ravi Shankar, who invited Duncan to study with him in California in 2010. Duncan is also closely involved with the South African charity MIAGI (Music Is A Great Investment) and, to celebrate the centenary of Nelson Mandela’s birth in 2018, led the MIAGI Orchestra on an acclaimed summer festivals tour which included concerts at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg and the Berlin Konzerthaus.

Also an accomplished composer - winner of the 2005 BBC Young Composer of the Year – Duncan is now published by Peters Edition. Recent composing highlights include arrangements of Dvořák songs for performances given by Sir Simon Rattle and Magdalena Kožená (performed in cities across Europe), an orchestral work for the LSO featured on their recent CD release of Panufnik Scheme Highlights, a commission for the Bamberger Symphoniker, and a theatrical version of We’re Going on a Bear Hunt performed by members of the National Youth Orchestra at the Southbank’s Imagine Festival. His works have also been performed by the Swedish Radio Symphony, BBC National Orchestra of Wales, Endymion Ensemble, BBC Singers and The Sixteen.
