BRAHMS Tragic Overture
BEETHOVEN Romance No.1
MENDELSSOHN Piano Concerto No.1
DVORÁK Symphony No.7

Every music lover knows Dvořák’s symphony ‘from the New World’, but when he wrote his Seventh, he was a lot closer to home – and it shows. Turbulent, passionate and bursting with melody, this is Dvořák at his most heroic, the Czech upstart proudly claiming his place alongside Beethoven and Brahms. So it’s wonderfully appropriate that this concert includes Brahms’s soul-stirring Tragic Overture as well as Beethoven’s Romance. In between, Lars Vogt takes to the keyboard to perform – and at the same time, direct – Mendelssohn’s brilliant First Piano Concerto. It drove Victorian audiences wild: you’ll hear why!

Karin begins her 19.20 residency with the Gulbenkian Orchestra as their first ever Young Conductor in Residence as Assistant Conductor to Lorenzo Viotti (Music Director, Gulbenkian Orchestra; Music Director Designate, Dutch National Opera & Orchestra)

In the summer of 1893, Gustav Mahler began a practice that would span for many years, he withdrew to the bucolic landscape of Steinbach am Attersee, surrounded by meadows and a lake which inspired the composition of Symphony No. 3. Mahler would come to refer to the second movement as “the most carefree” of his pieces, “as carefree as flowers can be”. For the composer, the outstanding ambition of Symphony No. 3 would lead him to attempt to translate into music all of the world’s magnificence.

Benjamin Attahir’s piece for serpent and orchestra is part of a programme lead by the Finnish conductor Hannu Lintu, who conducts canonical works with renewed enthusiasm.

What do you see – and hear – once the sun has set? Out on the great plain of Hungary, Béla Bartók hears a nocturnal rhapsody of insects and shivering leaves. In the emptiness of Iceland, Anna Thorvaldsdottir kindles a flame against a darkness that lasts all winter long. In eighteenth century Salzburg, the young Mozart dances the night away. And Benjamin Britten enlists a horn player, a tenor and some of the greatest poems in the English language for a luminous journey through to dawn. The superb young Swedish conductor Daniel Blendulf is our guide to an evening of music that glows in the dark.

BORODIN In the Steppes of Central Asia
SHOSTAKOVICH Piano Concerto No.2
TCHAIKOVSKY Symphony No.6 ‘Pathétique’

Don’t be misled by the name. ‘Pathétique’ actually means ‘full of feeling’, and Tchaikovsky poured everything he had into his sixth and final symphony. This is music in the raw, pounding with emotion and packed with melody after glorious melody: a magnificent way for Lars Vogt to open Royal Northern Sinfonia’s new season, and the climax of an all-Russian concert that begins deep in the deserts of Mongolia with Borodin’s colourful musical landscape. Then Vogt takes to the keyboard to perform – and direct – the delightfully playful piano concerto that Shostakovich wrote for his teenage son.

SCHOENBERG Verklarte Nacht 
SAINT-SAENS Symphony No. 2

Written on the eve of the 20th century, Schoenberg’s ultra-Romantic Transfigured Night uses the shimmering tones of a string orchestra to conjure a moonlit setting for a tale of emotional transformation. As a couple walk through a cold, barren grove one night, feelings change from despair to hope, from grief to joy, through an act of love and acceptance. The music similarly transforms from resignation and agitation to a hymn-like climax, rich in tenderness and compassion.

This is what a conductor looks like.

Every year on 8 March, Radio 3 marks International Women’s Day by devoting its entire schedule to music by women composers.

In 2019, as well as learning about the women behind the music, we’re hearing directly from some of the women in front of it – the conductors.

Although it's not as rare to see women on the podium as it was in the past, the number of women conductors in the UK is still comparatively small. The last five years have seen a flurry of new initiatives designed to support and encourage women to take up roles in musical leadership. But will the momentum last?

Throughout 8 March, we'll hear the perspectives and experiences of eight women in musical leadership, all at different stages in their careers.

Karin Hendrickson “People are starting to change what they can change within their systems. Hopefully, that means the bigger system will get healthier – for woman and for men, and for orchestras. Because this is not only about women, it's about the system. You need the system to work in a way that identifies pure musicianship and pure talent and move that forward. Because frankly, at the end of the day, we're in the business of curating culture.”
