The Vienna Philharmonic, one of the finest in the world, will present two nights of classical music at Shenzhen Concert Hall. The program of Oct. 19 will be Beethoven’s “Symphony No. 8” and Strauss’ “A Hero’s Life.” The next night’s program will be Beethoven’s “Symphony No. 7” and “Leonore No. 3” and Wagner’s “Tristan and Isolde Overture.” Latvian conductor Andris Nelsons will wield the baton.

世界三大交响乐团之一,德奥古典至高代言。有着深厚历史底蕴,塑造不可超越的“维也纳音色”,由指挥翘楚安德里斯·尼尔森斯领衔的百年维也纳爱乐首度来深,献礼深圳音乐厅十周年。

 

Founded in 1842, the Vienna Philharmonic is based at the Musikverein in Vienna, Austria. Its members are selected from the orchestra of the Vienna State Opera. In 2006, the Vienna Philharmonic was chosen as Europe’s finest orchestra in a survey of seven leading trade publications, two radio stations and a daily newspaper. In 2008, an international jury of music critics polled by the British Gramophone magazine ranked it third in the world after the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra and Berlin Philharmonic.

维也纳爱乐乐团成立于1842年,由时任维也纳宫廷歌剧院指挥奥托•尼古莱与歌剧院乐团的乐手们共同创办,此后迅速以无法超越、难以效仿的“维也纳音色”独步天下,成为当今唯一不设常任指挥的世界顶级乐团,但这并没有阻碍历代指挥家中的精英翘楚纷至沓来,并以与乐团合作为荣。

 

Andris Nelsons

 

Nelsons is currently the music director of the Boston Symphony Orchestra and the music director-designate of the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra.

安德里斯•尼尔森斯无疑是当今最具有才华的新一代指挥界翘楚,年仅36岁的他业已成为影响古典音乐舞台未来走向的重要人物,并倍受顶级交响乐团、歌剧院、音乐节追捧。

 

Beethoven’s “Symphony No. 8 in F Major, Op. 93” is a symphony in four movements. The composer fondly referred to it as “my little Symphony in F,” distinguishing it from his sixth symphony.

 

His eighth symphony is generally light-hearted, though not lightweight, and in many places cheerfully loud, with many accented notes. Various passages in the symphony are heard by some listeners to be musical jokes.

 

As with various other Beethoven works such as piano sonatas, the symphony deviates from classical tradition in making the last movement the weightiest of the four.

 

“A Hero’s Life, Op. 40” is a tone poem by Richard Strauss. The work was completed in 1898. It was his sixth work in the genre, and exceeded any of its predecessors in its orchestral demands. Generally agreed to be autobiographical in nature, despite contradictory statements on the matter by the composer, the work contains more than 30 quotations from Strauss’ earlier works.

 

“Leonore No. 3” is considered by many listeners as the greatest of the four overtures to Beethoven’s opera “Fidelio.”
