28 March: James P. Liu, Music Director of the Wuhan Philharmonic, for the first time in Milan

On Tuesday 28 March 2017 at 9:00 pm, in the great hall of the University of Milan La StataleJAMES PENG LIU, Music Director of the Wuhan Philharmonic Orchestra – one of the most important Chinese orchestras – will make his debut in Milan on the podium of the Orchestra UniMi, thanks to the collaboration with the Confucius Institute.

The program starts with a piece of the American period of IGOR STRAVINSKIJ: the Danses Concertantes (1942). Not being considered by the composer as  music for ballet (although years later it was just used  for this), in the composer’s intention they represent a summary of his musical thoughts at that time.

Lang Lang won in 1995 the Čaikovskij Prize playing the Chinese Rhapsody No. 2 written by the Chinese composer AN-LUN HUANG (1976), of whom the program of the concert proposes, as the European premièreFlying free in the sky, second movement of the fantastic symphony The Deity in Cloud, performed as world premiere in April 2016 by the Wuhan Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by James P. Liu. The symphony is representative of the contemporary Chinese music  which finds inspiration in the ancient Chinese tradition but is interpreted through the canons of the modern Western orchestra.

With the Symphony No. 4 Tragic by FRANZ SCHUBERT, which closes the concert, we are back in the European cultural tradition. Written in 1816 by a nineteen years old Schubert, Symphony No. 4 deals with the cumbersome Beethoven model, like previous and subsequent Schubert’s symphonies. Although at that time it was essential to refer to this model, Schubert desired to distance himself from it.

Free admission for all 2016/2017 season  concerts upon registrating once here.
The entrance is allowed until places are available.

On Tuesday 7th March 2017, at 9:00 pm, in the great hall of La Statale Milan University, the Orchestra UniMi, conducted by ALESSANDRO CRUDELE, will play one of the masterpiece of the literature for violin : the Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto E minor. NATASHA KORSAKOVA soloist.

It will follow the usual contemporary piece that Orchestra UniMi (the only one in Italy) plays in each concert. In this case Manhattan Broadcasts, written between 1962 and 1964 by at that time twenty years old Viennese composer HK GRUBERManhattan Broadcasts, –as title and orchestra score – with a large rythm section and an electric guitar – suggest, evoke jazz and swing atmospheres, unusual for our concerts. As often happens, also this piece will be performed as Italian premiere.

And let us not miss anything in terms of rhythmic component and original timbre combinations, the concert will end with the Suite Pulcinella by Igor Stravinskij.

Free admission for all 2016/2017 season  concerts upon registrating once here.
The entrance is allowed until places are available.
