Music Of Love – Colne

Date: Sunday 29th April 2012 14:30

Venue: The Muni Theatre, Colne

G&abor Tak&acs-Nagy – ConductorAnna Stephany – Mezzo Soprano

A portrait of works by composers struck by the love bug. The muse for Webern’s uncharacteristically lush early Slow Movement was Wilhelmine M&ortl, his future wife. Brahms’ Liebeslieder Waltzes explore love in all its shapes and forms. Dvo’Ä_Ü¢&ak’s Love Songs, in an arrangement here by David Matthews, are all settings of romantic poems by Gustav Pfleger-Moravsky. Souvenir de Florence by Tchaikovsky, king of melodies, was dedicated to his mystery patron, Nadezhda von Meck, whom he never actually met.

“There are many conductors in the world who can get orchestras to play together but there are very few who can profoundly inspire. G&abor Tak&acs-Nagy is one of them.” Iv&an Fischer (conductor)
