    Schumann Focus: Das Paradies • FRI / JUN 1, 2017/18

    Schumann Focus: Das Paradies • FRI / JUN 1, 2017/18

    Dudamel teams with iconic director Peter Sellars and innovative video artist Refik Anadol for the poignant and rarely performed oratorio Das Paradies und die Peri.
    About this Performance:
    Although his life was difficult, to say the least, ending prematurely in madness, Robert Schumann nonetheless composed music that elevates us through its pure spirit and unique personal character. Over three weekends, Gustavo Dudamel delves deeply into Schumann’s four symphonies, two greatest concertos, and a rarely heard oratorio, offering us a portrait of the man through his finest creations.
    The oratorio Das Paradies und die Peri (Paradise and the Peri) is seen as one of Schumann’s major achievements; even Wagner had positive words for it. The story, which originated with 19th-century Irish poet/singer Thomas Moore, was translated by Schumann and a friend. It tells of a peri – a fairy-like spirit from Persian mythology, somewhere between an angel and a devil – who has been cast out of heaven. Its only way back is by finding the gift that God will like best, which – spoiler alert! – turns out to be a tear from a repentant old sinner who has observed a child praying.
    For our production, incomparable operatic mastermind Peter Sellars teams with media artist Refik Anadol to create a never-before-seen staging, bringing the season to a moving conclusion.
    Program:
    SCHUMANN: Das Paradies und die Peri, Op. 50 (Part One, Part Two)Orchestration: 3 flutes (1 & 2 = piccolo), 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 4 horns, 2 trumpets, 3 trombones, tuba, timpani, percussion (bass drum, cymbals, triangle), harp, strings, mixed chorus, and vocal soloists First Los Angeles Philharmonic performances
    These concerts, the conclusion of the Los Angeles Philharmonic’s Schumann Focus, celebrate a number of firsts. Of course, these will be the first performances of what promises to be another provocative staging by director Peter Sellars, this time in collaboration with media artist Refik Anadol. Notably, too, these will be the Philharmonic’s first-ever performances of Robert Schumann’s Das Paradies und die Peri. And, most importantly, for almost everyone in the audience, this will be the first time they have ever experienced this masterpiece in person. Make no mistake, it is a masterpiece, and if you are one of the fortunate few who have attended a performance of Das Paradies und die Peri, take a moment to assure your nearby seatmates that they are in for a rare treat.
    Consider this statistic: during Schumann’s lifetime, Das Paradies was second only to his “Spring” Symphony as the composer’s most frequently performed large- scale work. In fact, his mature reputation throughout the musical world was largely built on the acclaim and popularity that Das Paradies accrued. It was greeted so enthusiastically upon its premiere in Leipzig in December of 1843 that an encore performance was held the following week. And within just a few years it would be heard well beyond the borders of Germany; from Amsterdam to Prague, from Zürich to Riga, Das Paradies was a hit. By 1847, it was scheduled to be performed under the aus- pices of the American Musical Institute in New York, but subscriber jitters over such a modern and unknown work delayed the transatlantic premiere until the following spring, by which time the promoters were grandly claiming that more than a thousand dollars and a year of rehearsal had been expended on the presentation.
    Naturally, not all assessments were positive. The first fraught London performance was undertaken in 1856, the year of Schumann’s death. One journal seemed inclined to endorse the piece: “From the impression on ourselves, as well as the
    evident effect on a highly critical audience, we believe Paradise and the Peri to be a work of great genius and power, of which the beauties will develop themselves mo

    Composer Salonen: Wing on Wing • FRI / FEB 16, 2017/18

    Composer Salonen: Wing on Wing • FRI / FEB 16, 2017/18

    Our Conductor Laureate revisits the piece he composed for the opening of Walt Disney Concert Hall alongside music of Beethoven and Mozart.
    About this Performance:
    The second program celebrating our Conductor Laureate as a composer concludes with the latest edition of his Wing on Wing, the piece he wrote for the opening of Walt Disney Concert Hall. Inspired by Frank Gehry’s sailing imagery – also the source of his title – Salonen takes full advantage of the orchestra and the Hall’s brilliant acoustics, such as placing sopranos across from each other in the Orchestra East and West sections of the audience. It’s a celebration in sound of a long-held dream come true.
    Launching this marvelous program is young Norwegian violinist Vilde Frang, whose profound musicianship and unassailable virtuosity have already established her throughout Europe as a leading light in the music world. She makes her much-anticipated LA Phil debut performing Beethoven’s towering Violin Concerto, a masterpiece of noble lyricism, which set the bar for all such works to come.
