Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: Symphony No.35 (Haffner)
Anton Bruckner: Symphony No.5
Lucerne Festival Orchestra
Claudio Abbado conductor
A world-class partnership rarely heard outside the Lucerne Festival, the Lucerne Festival Orchestra performs a series of concerts at Southbank Centre with conductor Claudio Abbado - 'perhaps the finest of all current orchestras under the baton of the most eminent of all conductors' (The Guardian).
The two Shell Classic International concerts at Royal Festival Hall pair works by Schumann and Mozart with Bruckner's great Symphony No.5.
Abbado inspires his 'orchestral family', created from the world's best players around a core made up of the Mahler Chamber Orchestra, to supreme achievements by imparting a heightened awareness more common to chamber music. Not heard in London since 2007, Abbado is known for infusing a deep spirituality into his interpretations. Bruckner's Symphony No.5 offers a unique opportunity to be taken on a spiritual journey, from the emotional battle of the opening movement, through to the finale which concludes with ringing trumpets, timpani rolls and heroic chords.
Offering a contrast to this is the music of Schumann and Mozart. For the opening concert Dame Mitsuko Uchida joins Abbado and the orchestra for Schumann's Piano Concerto in A minor. The second concert presents Mozart's Symphony No.35 (Haffner), a work of refined brilliance and a supreme example of the Classical symphony.

Leif Ove Andsnes (piano)

Jiri Belohlavek (conductor).
Bruckner: Symphony No 4 in E flat major
Leif Ove Andsnes (piano)
BBC Symphony Orchestra
Jiri Belohlavek (conductor).
Celebrated Norwegian pianist Leif Ove Andsnes joins the BBC Symphony Orchestra and Chief Conductor Jiri Belohlavek for the opening concert of their new season. The programme features two romantic masterpieces, starting with Rachmaninov's lyrical and virtuosic Third Piano Concerto. Bruckner's Fourth Symphony - dubbed "The Romantic" by the composer himself - completes the programme.
Leif Ove Andsnes has built his reputation on the great romantic piano concertos of Grieg, Schumann and Rachmaninov. Whilst the Third Concerto may have lain in the shadow of its more famous sibling, the Second, its wonderful tunes and showstopping bravura make it a perfect curtain-raiser for the BBC Symphony Orchestra's season opening. The Czech conductor Jiri Belohlavek leads the orchestra in Bruckner's Fourth Symphony, conjuring up horn-drenched romantic scenes of medieval castles, hare-hunting and a folk-festival.

Live from the Brangwyn Hall, Swansea.
Presented by Catherine Bott.Debussy: Le martyre de Saint Sebastien - fragments symphoniques.
Ravel: Piano Concerto in G.
Mussorgsky: Night on the Bare Mountain (arr. Rimsky-Korsakov)
Stravinsky: Firebird Suite (1919).
Steven Osborne (piano), Thierry Fischer (conductor).
The BBC National Orchestra of Wales makes its annual appearance at the Swansea Festival with music from Russia and France under the baton of Principal Conductor Thierry Fischer.
Debussy's score for the Martyrdom of Saint Sebastian is considered one of his finest late works. The original play by the Romantic author Gabriele d'Annunzio, lasted over five hours at the first production, and Debussy's shimmering music is intensely dramatic, full of impressionist colours. He arranged four symphonic fragments for concert performance from this mammoth spectacle, lasting just 25 minutes. Ravel's piano concerto in G requires spectacular agility. It's infused with jazz - Ravel had just returned from a concert tour in North America - but it's also inspired by Mozart, the composer claimed his model for the haunting tune in the slow movement was the Clarinet Quintet. Steven Osborne is highly regarded for his performances of Ravel, he's just released the complete works for solo piano on CD.
Mussorgsky's Night on the Bare Mountain is a terrifying musical picture of devilry, as a band of witches awaits the arrival of their master - Satan. In this concert we hear Rimsky Korsakov's full-blooded orchestration. Another Russian folk tale, Stravinsky's Firebird closes the concert. Blazing orchestral colour abounds in this dramatic concert suite.

EBU LISZT DAY
Franz Liszt's bicentenary
Radio 3 celebrates Franz Liszt's bicentenary with a special day of concerts from all over the European Broadcasting Union. The day starts with our own BBC Singers in a programme of Liszt's vocal music from Wigmore Hall in London. Then to Raiding where Liszt was born, for some of his symphonic poems, a form which he invented. Liszt's Hungarian background is represented through a performance of his mighty oratorio, Christus from Budapest. After retiring from the concert platform at the age of only 35, Liszt settled in Weimar, and the Leipzig Radio Symphony Orchestra concert from there includes his Faust Symphony. Liszt spent his final years in Bayreuth, and the day finishes with a live concert from the Grosses Festspielhaus featuring his Second Piano Concerto, performed by Konstantin Sherbakov.

Concerto n1 per pianoforte e orchestra di Brahms
Sinfonia n 5 di I. Stravinsky
Un Brahms “argentino” per l'Orchestra Rai con Nelson Goerner. Sul podio il russo Dmitri Slobodeniouk
Doveva essere un’ouverture, poi un’opera per due pianoforti, quindi una sinfonia in tre movimenti. Il percorso che ha portato alla nascita del Concerto n. 1 per pianoforte e orchestra di Brahms è stato complesso; ma il risultato è unico: una fusione di linguaggio concertistico e sinfonico senza precedenti. Il pianista argentino Nelson Goerner lo propone nel concerto dell’Orchestra Sinfonica Nazionale della Rai di giovedì 27 ottobre alle 20.30, in programma all’Auditorium Rai “Arturo Toscanini” di Torino, trasmesso in diretta su Radio3 e in live streaming sul sito http://www.osn.rai.it.
Vincitore di numerosi concorsi internazionali, dal Franz Liszt di Buenos Aires al Concours International d'Exécution Musicale di Ginevra, è regolarmente ospite dei maggiori festival, sale da concerto ed orchestre in Europa e nel mondo, fra cui: Festival di Salisburgo, Musikverein di Vienna, Concertgebouw di Amsterdam, London Philharmonic, NHK Symphony di Tokyo e Los Angeles Philharmonic.
Sul podio il giovane direttore russo Dmitri Slobodeniouk, molto attivo in Finlandia e già ospite dell’Orchestra Rai, che nella seconda parte del concerto proponela Quinta Sinfonia di Sergej Prokof’ev: “Un inno all’uomo libero e felice, ai suoi alti poteri, al suo puro e nobile spirito”, secondo le parole dello stesso compositore. Il concerto è replicato venerdì 28 ottobre 2011 alle 20.30, sempre a Torino.
