Berliner Philharmonie

Berlin, Germany

A “Late Night” concert with French chamber music and Simon Rattle at the piano

 

The two French chamber music works of this Late Night concert show evidence of existential crises – but without sacrificing elegance. Olivier Messiaen wrote his Quatuor pour la fin du temps in 1940/41 in a German prisoner-of-war camp, surrounded by death. Claude Debussy composed his violin sonata in 1917, while he was seriously ill. Members of the Berliner Philharmoniker perform with Sir Simon Rattle at the piano.

Programme

After being conscripted by the French army in 1939, Olivier Messiaen became a German prisoner of war a year later and was deported to Görlitz prison camp STALAG VIII A. It was there that the composer, with death before his eyes every day, wrote his Quatuor pour la fin du temps around the turn of the year 1940/1941. Messiaen’s inspiration for this work came “straight from [...] the Apocalypse”, as it is portrayed in the Book of Revelation. With the approval of the camp commander, Messiaen and three other inmates performed the premiere of the Quatuor pour la fin du temps before more than 400 Belgian and French prisoners of war on 15 January 1941. “The audience was an extremely diverse mixture from all walks of life – agricultural workers, labourers, intellectuals, professional soldiers, doctors and clergy,” as the composer later recalled. “Never again have I been listened to with such attention and understanding as then.”

According to Messiaen, the musical language of the eight-movement composition for clarinet, violin, violoncello and piano is “disembodied, spiritual, and catholic. The thematic motifs, which melodically and harmoniously form a kind of tonal omnipresence, bring the listener closer to eternity in space and infinity. Particular rhythms, free from any measure, strongly contribute to moving the temporal into the distance.” The performance of Messiaen’s singular and – despite the circumstances of its composition – timeless work is the main work in this late night concert with Sir Simon Rattle on the piano, the orchestra’s principal clarinet Wenzel Fuchs, 1st concertmaster of the Berliner Philharmoniker Daishin Kashimoto and the orchestra’s 1st principal cello Ludwig Quandt forming the ensemble. To open this late night event, Sir Simon and Daishin Kashimoto also perform the Sonata for Violin and Piano by Messiaen’s fellow countryman, Claude Debussy.

             Klarinete Maratoia Ikasturte honetakoa hamaseigarren edizioa izango da (abenduaren 13-17 bitartean). Klarinete Maratoian musika-hezkuntzaren hatsarre edo printzipio ugari uztartzen dira: kalitatezko irakaskuntza, maila handiko musikari eta irakaslearen konpromisoa, jatorri eta maila ezberdineko musikarien arteko harremana bultzatzea, jende aurrean musika egiten trebatzea, ikasleek lorpenak jendaurrean erakustea… eta den-dena, klarinetearen bueltan. ​ Urtetik urtera Klarinete Maratoiak hainbat eta hainbat jarduera ezberdin ikusi ditu eta horretan dihardugu: Formatu txikiko zein ertaineko kontzertuak, Musika eta Literatura eta Musika eta Zinea uztartuta, ikus-entzunezko emanaldiak, argazki lehiaketa,teknologia berrien erabilpenak musikan (TIC), Music & English, musikarako materialen erakusketak, Clarinet Clinic, musikari bikainak gonbidatu,… Irakaskuntzari dagokionez, hasierako urteetatik bakarkako eta taldekako klarinete-eskolak egin dira maila guztietara zuzenduta: Musika Eskoletako bigarren edo hirugarren mailako ikasleak, alegia, klarineteari aisialdiaren begiekin begiratzen diotenak, adin guztietakoak: gaztetxoak, gazteak eta helduak. Baina  Maratoian badute lekua klarinetea lanbidetzat izango duten ikasleek ere, Kontserbatorioko ikasleek, alegia. Musika eskoletako irakasle dihardutenak ere ikasle bihurtzen dira Maratoian, eta baita orkestretako klarinete-joleak ere.  Irakasle zein interprete, Maratoira  klarinetearen teknika aurreratuenak barneratzeko etortzen dira. Jatorri hain ezberdineko ikasleen parte hartzea ez litzateke posible izango Carlos Casadóren sakon-sakoneko profesionaltasunik gabe. Carlos Casadó Bigarren saria lortu zuen I.C.A.-k (Internacional Clarinet Association) antolatutako Orchestral Audition Competition lehiaketan, eta orkestra-musikaren alorrean egindako lanari esker, trial bat egin zuen BBC Scottish Symphony orkestran, klarinete-plaza lortu zuen Göteborgs Operan orkestran, eta gaur egun, Orquesta Nacional de España orkestrako kide da.   Ganbera-musikaren alorrean, emanaldiak egin ditu zenbait talderekin, estreinaldiak, kontzertuk eta grabaketa ugari eginaz.Horiez guztiez gain, hiru CD argitaratu ditu: Música para clarinete solo del siglo XX; Arabesco, klarinete eta pianorako; eta Just for fun, klarinete baxu eta pianorako. Disko horiek oso harrera ona izan zuten kritikari adituen artean. Irakasle-lanari dagokionez, Coruñako Conservatorio Estatal Superior de Música kontserbatorioko klarinete-katedraduna da, eta hainbat erakunderen deiak jasotzen ditu, ikastaroak eman, topaketetan parte hartu eta bestelako jarduera didaktikoak egiteko. ​ 2006an, International Clarinet Association elkarteak Espainiarako Chairperson izendatu zuen.
