Wiener Symphoniker / Netopil «Antonín Dvořák: Te Deum»

Antonín Dvořák composed his «Te Deum» in New York in 1892 to commemorate the 400th anniversary of Christopher Columbus’s discovery of America. That it is conceived more as a concert piece than a liturgical work can be seen in the unusual treatment of the text, as well as the large-scale construction and the quasi-symphonic proportions of its four movements. The drama of the work is reminiscent of Giuseppe Verdi and the honour of conducting the first-ever performance of this monumental cantata in the Wiener Konzerthaus has fallen to Dvorak’s compatriot, Czech maestro Tomáš Netopil, who is making his debut here.

MusicAeterna / Melnikov / Currentzis

At the end of October, Teodor Currentzis will show that he not only has a sense of the lofty and the sublime but also for the playful and the grotesque: alongside Prokofiev’s «Symphonie classique», bursting with dreamy joviality, the almost classical comedy of Shostakovich’s Second Piano Concerto will be on the programme. And to end the evening: Shostakovich’s Ninth Symphony, an ironic, even satirical work, provocatively unpompous.
