Dedication - Master Series 5

Christoph König - Conductor
Louis Lortie - Piano

Ravel - Le tombeau de Couperin
Saint-Saëns - Piano Concerto No 2
Mendelssohn - Symphony No 3 'Scottish'

Mendelssohn visited Scotland as a 20-year-old. It made a lasting impression that he was able to share, many years later, in music. Stand with the composer in the ruins of Holyrood’s ruined chapel, and listen for the ghosts of Scottish history murmuring in the gathering dusk. Then hike through the Highlands, enjoying the fleeting sunshine of the second movement, and the pervasive chilly gloom of the third. Visit old battlefields, take shelter from storms, and enjoy the misty, rugged wilderness – all in one symphony.

 

The first half of the program is warm indoor music. Louis Lortie, longtime friend of the ASO, plays the popular Second Piano Concerto by Saint-Saëns. The piano skips sublimely, then helter-skelter, over an eclectic score.

 

Le tombeau de Couperin is a colourful recreation of French Baroque elegance, and each movement is dedicated to the memory of a friend of the composer who had died fighting in World War I. Ravel’s genius makes the orchestra as lithe and graceful as a dancer in this gentle tribute.
