Wolfgang Rihm's works often emerge in family groups, with one piece serving as the starting point for a whole hierarchy of others, but the starting point for the five movements of the Nähe Ferne symphony was another composer. Rihm was commissioned by the Lucerne Symphony Orchestra to write pendants to each of Brahms's four symphonies, and after they were performed, he assembled the set into a symphony of his own, adding to the sequence an orchestration ……

Deus Passus is one quarter of the Passion Project 2000, which celebrated not only the turning of the millennium but also commemorated the 250th anniversary of Bach’s death. German conductor Helmuth Rilling honored this occasion by commissioning Passions from four disparate composers: Wolfgang Rihm, Tan Dun, Sofia Gubaidulina, and Osvaldo Golijov. Deus Passus is a setting of the Passion according to St. Luke, and it is a marvel of a piece for many reasons. For a full hour and a half, with music that is mostly slow and largely atonal (in the sense that Berg’s music is atonal), the twisting, aching, unpredictable harmonies are totally captivating. Rihm chooses a straightforward setting, a simple, dramatic telling of the story, and it is in his capacity for restraint that the true brilliance of the piece lies. He uses the chorus sparingly, mostly for dramatic purposes, having it portray the angry rabble bent on crucifying Jesus (as it often does in Bach’s passions).

Firmly established as one of the world’s greatest violinists, Renaud Capuçon career both on the stage and as a recording artist has spanned a wide gamut of concerto repertoire, chamber music and recitals.

Veteran violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter is not performing the usual Beethoven or Mozart repertoire here, but branching out to embrace new music commissioned for her. Along for the ride are the excellent New York Philharmonic under the baton of Michael Francis for the first Rihm work, and then under Alan Gilbert for the Currier piece, along with contrabassist Roman Patkoló. Lichtes Spiel (for violin and small orchestra) is indeed a "light game," with layered voices in the strings.

The great Bohemian-born composer Gustav Mahler once said, "A symphony must be like the world. It must embrace everything." Over the course of its nearly 300-year life, the symphony has indeed embraced almost every trend to be found in Western concert music.

Célèbre pour son sens de la poésie et sa virtuosité hors pairs, le pianiste américain Emanuel Ax interprètera une œuvre majeure de Richard Strauss, Burlesque pour piano et orchestre, une œuvre exigeante écrite par Strauss à tout juste 21 ans. Lorsque Strauss compose son poème symphonique Une vie de héros à la fin du XIXe siècle, il a 34 ans. Il y exprime tout son talent, avec assurance, puissance musicale et une touche de pathos. Aucune autre de ses œuvres ne dévoile autant d’égocentrisme et d’aplomb. Dans le cadre de cet hommage à Richard Strauss, Andrés Orozco-Estrada et le Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra se confrontent à ce monument du répertoire orchestral.
