Tapiola Sinfonietta: HOMMAGE AN CLARA season concert
Antonello Manacorda, conductor
Lisa Larsson, soprano
Richard Strauss: Overture and Dance Scene from the opera Ariadne auf Naxos
Hommage an Clara op. 115, orchestrated by Rolf Martinsson
Béla Bartók: Suite no. 2 op. 4
Swedish soprano Lisa Larsson pays tribute to Clara Schumann with a set of Lieder for which she commissioned orchestral arrangements from Rolf Martinsson. This is a cycle with appearances by the men in Clara’s life, Robert Schumann and Johannes Brahms. In the bright Dance Scene from Strauss’s opera Ariadne auf Naxos, a group of young gentlemen sing the praises of coloratura soprano Zerbinetta but fail to notice as she steals away with the Harlequin.
Bartók’s rarely performed Suite no. 2 was panned by conservative listeners in Berlin in 1909, but these days it provokes little more than a smile with its joyous antics.
