A GLORIOUS PROM BY THE BAVARIAN RADIO SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA

5 August 2019 -

Sibelius, Prokofiev & R. Strauss: Gil Shaham (violin), Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra / Yannick Nézet‐Séguin (conductor), Royal Albert Hall, London, 31.7.2019. (CS)

Program:
Sibelius – Symphony No.1 in E minor Op.39 (Henry Wood Novelties: UK premiere, 1903)
Prokofiev – Violin Concerto No.2 in G minor Op.63 (Henry Wood Novelties: UK premiere, 1936)
R. Strauss – Der Rosenkavalier, suite

"Shaham’s performance was characterised by refinement and thoughtfulness, his imaginative reading facilitated by a flawless technique, warm tone, easy projection and detailed engagement with his accompanying partners.  From the first gentle steps of the unaccompanied theme to the final furious flourish of the Finale, the silky eloquence and beauty of Shaham’s interpretation were unwavering."

Bach Renewed: Antoine Tamestit

5 August 2019 -

French violist Antoine Tamestit releases not one but two albums of Bach arrangements in 2019: the viola da gamba sonatas and the Goldberg Variations for string trio. He reveals his innovatory and thoughtful approach to these challenging works in conversation with Carlos María Solare

‘Although I play the Cello Suites and the D minor Violin Partita, I find Bach’s Three Viola da Gamba Sonatas BWV1027–9 to be closest to the viola: they cover almost the same register, and even employ the same alto clef,’ says Tamestit, who has been in love with the sound of the viola da gamba since watching Alain Corneau’s film Tous les matins du monde (1991) as a child.
