Although many musicologists, composers, and artists have announced the end of the symphony era several times in history, the genre has remained the first and most important form of music in concert halls around the world for several hundred years. Thanks to the program of this concert, you will be able to trace its history and try to find the answer to the question about its immortality.
Although Boccherini is considered the creator of the first symphony, Haydn determined its form, and Mozart shaped it, Beethoven is regarded as a master who perfected it. As Henry Hunt wrote in 1879: Since then, while many have written symphonies and a few have been successful, we cannot say that in the last 50 years, any progress has been made in this regard.
The key to understanding the symphony seems to be to treat it like a good novel, with fast-paced action and original characters. Like a story, a symphony in its music contains unforeseen events, successive chapters colored with specific emotions, and a finale that leaves some recipients feeling fulfilled and others with an evident hunger for the next part.
It is no different in Beethoven and Schoenberg's symphonies, which we have selected for you this evening. Our unparalleled Rune Bergmann will act as your guide-narrator. As it has been said: a symphony is a walk together, feeling your hearts beat and understanding unspoken words.
Partnerem koncertu jest Szczecińska Izba Adwokacka.
