Phoenix Rising in Germany (1/2)

Join the Magdeburg Philharmonic Orchestra for their programme of contemporary international music and its actors, including a performance of Thea Musgrave’s tone poem for orchestra Phoenix Rising.


Magdeburg Philharmonic Orchestra

Unsuk Chin:
Prelude to the 5th scene from the opera "Alice in Wonderland"
Bernd Franke: "Open Doors". Concert for bandoneon and orchestra
Marko Nikodijevic: »GHB / Tanzaggregat
Jeffrey Ching's :"Fenghuang Singing" (world premiere)
Thea Musgrave: Phoenix Rising

Andión Fernández mezzo-soprano
Lothar Hensel Bandoneon
Armando Merino, Wilson Ng conductor

The Firebird as a mythological "phoenix from the ashes" not only pervades Thea Musgrave's popular orchestral piece, but also inspired Jeffrey Ching as a Chinese lucky man to create his new composition, which was commissioned by the IMPULS festival. One may be particularly curious, because only last season Ching thrilled the Magdeburg audience with his chamber opera "The true story of King Kong", a multimedia fusion of chamber opera, puppet theater and video art.

With Armando Merino and Wilson Ng there are two promising young talents at the conductor's podium, who will certainly give new impulses with their fresh handwriting.

Thea Musgrave
The Voice of our Ancestors (2014)

The choir of L’Opéra National de Bordeaux and their chorus master Salvatore Caputo present a tribute to three exceptional composers who write particularly sensitively for the voice. The most famous, Lilli Boulanger, produce many choral works despite her extremely short career (sadly passing away at only the age of 24). Pupil of Paul Dukas, Elsa Barraine meanwhile - Prix de Rome award-winner at 19 - composes in diverse genres, for both the symphony orchestra and for film (Jacques Demy) but loves the melody in both. With a similar love is Scotland’s Thea Musgrave, herself a student of Lili’s sister Nadia Boulanger, who’s 2014 work The Voices of Our Ancestors conclude the programme.



Or for eager francophones….

C’est un hommage à trois compositrices d’exception particulièrement sensibles à la voix que se proposent de rendre Salvatore Caputo et le Chœur de l’Opéra National de Bordeaux. La plus célèbre, Lili Boulanger, s’illustre notamment par une vaste production chorale malgré une carrière extrêmement brève (elle disparait à 24 ans seulement). Elève de Paul Dukas, Elsa Barraine quant à elle — Prix de Rome à 19 ans et résistante — compose dans des genres aussi divers que la symphonie ou la musique de film (de Jacques Demy) mais affectionne la mélodie. Possédant la même inclination, l’Ecossaise Thea Musgrave — élève de Nadia Boulanger (soeur aînée de Lili) — crée avec succès The Voices Of Our Ancestors en 2014.
