FINAL REHEARSAL: Emperor

Manacorda / Leonskaja / Chorell
Fri 4.10.2019 10:00
Elisabeth Leonskaja
Kuvaaja: Marco Borggreve
Born 250 years ago this year, Napoleon is remembered with imperial pieces and a musical reaction to tyranny. Schönberg’s Ode to Napoleon was his statement of support for the forces fighting Hitler. The composer insisted that the singer must have ”the number of shades, essential to express one hundred and seventy kinds of derision, sarcasm, hatred, ridicule, contempt, condemnation, etc., which I tried to portray in my music.” Elisabeth Leonskaja is a piano legend whose devoted fans follow her achievements from one concert and country to another.

Helsingin kaupunginorkesteri

Vuonna 1882 perustettu Helsingin kaupunginorkesteri tarjoaa konsertteja Musiikkitalossa ja mahdollisuuden sukeltaa sinfoniaorkesterin maailmaan. Vuosittaisten 70–80 Helsingissä järjestettävän konsertin lisäksi orkesteri tekee säännöllisesti ulkomaankiertueita, joista ensimmäinen suuntautui Pariisin maailmannäyttelyyn kesällä 1900. Monet kaupunginorkesterin levytykset ovat saaneet kansainvälisiä palkintoja. HKO:n ylikapellimestari on Susanna Mälkki.
