Pippi Longstocking, Björk and any Tim Burton character played by Helena Bonham Carter all in one. #PatriciaKopatchinskaja playing her cadenza to Stravinsky’s Violin Concerto ‘with as little virtuosity as possible’. Quite a challenge for this force of nature. 💃 #gustavogimeno@rdamphil
What an overwhelming listening experience was it!
"Resurrection رستاخيز Symphony No. 2”
by ‘Gustav Mahler’
👉🏼He wrote about the imposing Final part: 'The earth trembles, the graves burst open, the dead rise and flow in an endless procession. The apocalyptic trumpets evoke, but in the midst of the deathly silence we think we hear a nightingale singing in the distance, like a last vague echo of life on earth.👈🏼
🗣A CHORUS of saints and heavenly people softly sounds: “There is no judgment, no sinner, no righteous, no great and no lesser man, no punishment and no reward! An omnipotent feeling, irradiated with love.”🗣
This Symphony is not be performed that often, because of the large staff.🔺This is necessary to evoke apocalyptic images and the victory over death🔺. No symphony that starts so exciting and ends magically.
