Quote from: ChamberNut on July 15, 2009, 09:52:13 AMBruce, as we have discussed before, Boreyko is returning for a guest conductor performance with the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra, for Shostakovich's 10th in the 2009/10 season. I can't wait!

Quote from: bhodges on July 15, 2009, 11:03:58 AMThe concerts are Feb. 19 and 20. We should have a "GMG Meet-Up!" (And/or, storm Ray's house. )--Bruce
Quote from: DavidW on July 15, 2009, 08:00:16 AM...One thing I've heard attributed to the 4th is that it's the closest to being Mahlerian. I never really understood that. In sheer length maybe? It's not exactly hysterical like a Mahler symphony would be. Is it in the harmony? Or maybe a just a melody?
Quote from: Brian on July 15, 2009, 11:05:59 AMMaybe I'll pilfer his Ormandy/Shostakovich CDs while we're there.

Mickelthwaite is offering some unusual programming, including a 7-night contemporary music festival in February, in addition to better-known fare like Beethoven's Missa Solemnis and Haydn's The Creation.--Bruce
Quote from: jochanaan on July 15, 2009, 11:40:24 AMIt's more in the overall construction and his methods of theme development. The orchestra is actually very Mahlerian in size and proportion, and the first movement follows a Mahlerian version of sonta-allegro form. Other Mahler-like touches include the third movement's opening funeral march and the bird calls from high clarinet and solo violin in the first movement. Its ending is very like the ending of Das Lied von der Erde, even down to the celesta arpeggios.

Quote from: DavidW on July 17, 2009, 05:31:01 PMI guess I just got too cocky about feeling like I would warm up to a piece with one careful listen, this is not Clementi here!
