Modern diversity

»Since the flute of the ›Faun‹ [...] music breathes differently«, wrote Pierre Boulez about Claude Debussy's »Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune«, referring to its significance for contemporary music. In the orchestral work inspired by Stéphane Mallarmé's poem, exotic whole-tone scales, archaic pentatonicism and modal turns of phrase appear side by side on an equal footing. Debussy thus abolished the traditional contrast between consonance and dissonance. Around ten years later, Maurice Ravel dedicated himself to the fairytale world of »One Thousand and One Nights" in "Shéhérazade«. He celebrated his first major success with these three orchestral songs. Louise Alder will be the soloist at the RSO Vienna concert under chief conductor Marin Alsop. The soprano can also be heard in the fourth movement of Gustav Mahler's Fourth Symphony. The work, completed in 1901, is one of the »Wunderhorn symphonies« and shows once again how inseparable the genres of song and symphony are in Mahler's work.
