This charity concert focuses on different musical concepts of love. First, Debussy’s impressionist representation of the repentance of desire in “Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faune”, recounted by a flute-playing faun. This is contrasted with the frequently sober attachment formed for political purposes, though in the case of Wagner’s opera “Tristan and Isolde”, this is based on true love.
The charity concert continues the tradition of giving orchestra members the opportunity of a solo performance. Regardless of whether the Sinfonia Concertante K 297b was really written by Mozart or is merely his adaptation of another of his works, four soloists from the orchestra will demonstrate Wuppertal’s potent sound quality.
In “Le Poème de l’Extase”, Scriabin introduces the general theme that pervades all his work, the “concept of human power”. His work is impressive for its huge orchestra, which comes into its own in the fulminant final climax which is a musical transcription of the consolidation of human powers.
