Hummel Freudenfest Overture
Liszt A Hundred Years Ago
R. Strauss Der Rosenkavalier Suite
Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra
Kirill Karabits conductor
Liszt’s A Hundred Years Ago was first performed in Weimar for the festivities celebrating Schiller’s 100th birthday. A theatrical melodrama featuring actors interacting with Liszt’s incidental music, this performance is a brand new dramatic conception by Gerard McBurney.
It is followed by the Der Rosenkavalier Suite, an instant success with its Mozart-like farce and flurry of waltzes. Abounding in melodic splendour, this suite captures the most celebrated moments of the opera from which it is taken.
To conclude, Hummel’s joyful overture, composed to celebrate Napoleon’s defeat at Waterloo, interrupts its energetic chatter for a resounding burst of God Save the King.
