The Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France, conducted by Marzena Diakun, performs the Symphony no.9 by Antonín Dvořák, Hiatus et turbulences by Baptiste Trotignon, and Sieidi, Concerto for percussion by Kalevi Aho. Concert recorded on 15 March 2018 at the Auditorium of Radio France (Paris).
Dvořák’s Symphony no.9 “From the New World” is one of his great “American” works. Despite this association, a strong Bohemian presence is nonetheless undeniably present, though implicit, throughout the work. Strongly nostalgic for his homeland, the composer evokes its local celebrations and its landscapes.
Following this, the concerto for percussion Sieidi (2010) by Kalevi Aho, Finnish composer with a wide repertoire ranging from symphonies, chamber music, opera, to concertos for a variety of instruments including contrabassoon, tube, and double bass.
Finally, the world premiere of Hiatus et Turbulences by Baptiste Trotignon, an orchestral work brimming with energy and excitement.
