Themed on late German composer Richard Strauss, this year's Beijing Music Festival will also celebrate the life of Chinese musician Huang Zi. Chen Jie reports.
Beijing holds quite a few cultural events throughout the year, but fans of classical music usually look forward to the month of October because of the Beijing Music Festival, an annual feature that helps bring to China the latest global productions.
The festival is fresh as it isn't about outdated Western artists' tours of China or unknown orchestras looking to make some easy money.
Last year, when it was the birth anniversaries of Italian opera master Giuseppe Verdi and German composer Richard Wagner, the festival presented many concerts to honor the musical giants - both were born in 1813.
This year Cheap Andre Moreira Jersey , the festival will focus on the late German composer Richard Strauss.
Some 19 performances will be presented from October 9 to 31, including operas, symphonic concerts, chamber music, choir and children's concerts. There will be two operas and 16 orchestral works among significant works by the composer.
"Richard Strauss was the leading composer of the late Romantic and early Modern eras, representing German Romanticism after Richard Wagner Cheap Alessio Cerci Jersey ," says Yu Long, founder and artistic director of the BMF. "But he is not known in China. Many Chinese even confuse him with 'waltz king' Johann Strauss II, the Austrian composer of light music."
Lorin Maazel was expected to direct the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra at the opening of the festival, but with Maazel's passing away on July 13, the task now falls on Andris Poga.
Poga, a Latvian composer and now the musical director for the Latvian National Symphony Orchestra Replica AC Milan Jerseys , won the top prize at the Evgeny Svetlanov International Conducting Competition in 2010.
Under his baton, Munich Philharmonic Orchestra will play two concerts for all Strauss-related programs. The first evening will feature Metamorphosen and Eine Alpensinfonie. The second evening will have Don Quixote, Don Juan and Till Eulenspiegels lustige Streiche.
Munich Philharmonic Orchestra was founded in 1893 in Strauss' hometown and the orchestra has since become one of Europe's finest.
Renowned Austrian-Hungarian conductor Gustav Mahler directed the orchestra in 1901 and 1910 to premiere his Fourth and Eighth Symphonies. In November 1911, six months after the composer's death, the orchestra premiered his The Song of the Earth.
After its debut at New York's Carnegie Hall in February 2002, under the baton of then-chief conductor James Levine Custom AC Milan Jerseys , the New York Times hailed its "energetic, richly colored and insightful ... music making".
The Munich orchestra returned to Carnegie Hall in April with an all-Strauss program that included Till Eulenspiegels lustige Streiche.
Yu Long will conduct his China Philharmonic Orchestra to play another Strauss-themed program that includes Erste Walzerfolge, Violin Concerto in D minor and A Hero's Life on Oct 26.
Lu Wei, the 33-year-old first violinst of Deutsches Symphonie Orchester Berlin, will play the violin concerto. Yu recalled he first performed with Lu in 1992, when the latter was 11 and the former was chief conductor of China Central Opera House.
In 1898 Authentic AC Milan Jerseys , Strauss decided to write a piece in the style of Beethoven's Third Symphony, Heroic. Yu covers Strauss' attempt in a bid to celebrate the promotion of classical music in China.
Born to a family of musicians in Shanghai, Yu, 50, took to music early and learned conducting at Shanghai Conservatory and Berlin Conservatory.
He returned to China to establish the Beijing Music Festival in 1998 and China Philharmonic Orchestra in 2000. China Philharmonic Orchestra was among the Top 10 most inspiring orchestras listed by Gramophone in 2009. Today, he is also music director of Shanghai Symphony Orchestra and Guangzhou Symphony Orchestra.
Opera has always highlighted the festival.
In the past 16 years AC Milan Jerseys For Sale , the festival has presented operas that were rarely staged in China, with many even debuting here. Alban Berg's controversial opera Lulu in 2002, Wagner's full-length Ring Cycle in 2006 and Richard Strauss' The Knight of the Rose in 2008 are among those.
In 2010, the festival and Boston Symphony co-commissioned Chinese composer Zhou Long to create the opera Madame White Snake, which earned him a Pulitzer in 2011. Last year, the festival presented five operas Cheap AC Milan Jerseys , including Wagner's Parsifal, co-produced with Salzburg Easter Festival.
This year, the festival brings Strauss' Ariadne auf Naxos and Elektra to China.
Yu says his dream is to someday produce The Woman without a Shadow, because "musically, it is one of the composer's most complicated and beautiful scores, but a big challenge to stage to any major opera house. It needs some 13 top soloists Cheap Yannick Carrasco Jersey , a large orchestra and elaborate sets, which requires a really big sum of money."
This year, the festival will also celebrate the life of Chinese musician Huang Zi (1904-3. Huang is the grandfather of Tu Song, program director of the BMF.
"My grandfather created a lot of choir works. Two to three generations of Chinese people grew up with his songs. It's a shame that I was born after his death, but his songs will be passed on," says Tu.
