A melodic mix of musical styles
This concert given on the 25th of February 2017 in the Grande Salle Pierre Boulez of the Philharmonie de Paris has two classics works, a work quite unknown and an alternative piece. The Orchestra of Paris play a great mix of works which are sure to test your ears and challenge your listening comforts. First, we hear Concerto in D Major Op 61 by Ludwig Van Beethoven with Renaud Capuçon playing solo violin. This work is written in a typical Beethoven style, with dramatic solo parts and comprehensive orchestral accompaniment. Next we hear ‘The Dance of the Blessed Spirits’ by Christoph Willibald von Gluck. This is a work for solo piano which, although a stellar piece of keyboard composing, is unjustly not often heard in compilations of piano music. Next, Ludwig Van Beethoven’s Leonore Overture No. 2 in C Major is played. this features a melody which is carried primarily by the flute. Finally, the alternative piece—Babylon-Suite by Jörg Widmann—is played. It is a textural piece which will challenge your belief about the noises an orchestra can make!
