Karin Hendrickson conductor
Southbank Sinfonia RUSH HOUR #8: TRANSFIGURED

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.

IWD 2019: WOMEN IN FRONT

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.
In Tune – Karin Hendrickson:

Replay here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m0002zy9

[Interviewed at 18:49s; 24:12s; 52:44s]

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.”

MISSION STATEMENT FROM CBSO:

Our Musical Leadership Project involves multi art forms of instrumental and choral music and creative writing, led by the CBSO Artistic Team: comprising: Composer Jeremy Clay, CBSO Lead Musician Jackie Tyler, Children’s Author Mandy Ross and a CBSO Choral Leader. Each year a new theme is chosen which becomes the focus for creative work with both primary and secondary students.  Ideas are arranged and scored for full orchestra and this leads to a number of workshops where students have sectional rehearsals with CBSO players and tutti rehearsals with a visiting conductor. The work produced is shared publicly both at the academy and in high profile venues including Symphony Hall and The CBSO Centre.  Over a five year partnership, the academy’s orchestra has developed significantly, now with over 40 members compared to just 12 three years ago.

In addition to the orchestra there has always been a vocal strand to the project with local feeder primary schools taking part in the project. Our a capella group has also been involved in the workshops over the last three years with students being involved in the lyric writing aspect of the composition work and also participating in the final performances.

Students are clearly inspired by the visiting musicians. There is now an established tradition of orchestral work at Shenley Academy and a strong relationship with the organisation that goes from strength to strength.

HAYDN Piano concert in D Major
SIBELIUS Incidental music to Belshazar’s Feast
HOAD Between the Sky, the River, and the Hills *new commission

An orchestra is a potent narrator, its voice weaving stories and setting scenes in a way that words just can’t. Cheryl Frances-Hoad’s new piano concerto takes us to Bosnia and a bridge over the river Drina which stood as a silent witness to four centuries of turbulent history. At the music’s heart sit the lives, relations and destinies of the locals, their tales infused with native folk music. Between the Skies, the River and the Hills also pays homage to Haydn’s Piano Concerto in D major and its bounding final movement, fuelled by a Croatian folk tune. 

Sibelius’ storytelling takes a different, but equally arresting, approach. His music for the stage conjures starlit skies, exotic processions and wistful solitude, drawing on folk music from earlier eras.

THE DALLAS OPERA HART INSTITUTE OF WOMEN CONDUCTORS CONCERT, KARIN HENDRICKSON, CONDUCTOR

Saturday, November 18, 2017, 7:30 PM, The Dallas Opera (map)

Karin Hendrickson conductor

The Dallas Opera is proud to present the six distinguished professionals selected to participate in the third annual residency of the Linda and Mitch Hart Institute for Women Conductors at The Dallas Opera in two public concerts, both in the magnificent Margot and Bill Winspear Opera House at the AT&T Performing Arts Center.

General Admission seating is just $10 at these historic concerts, and is available now by contacting The Dallas Opera Ticket Office at 214.443.1000 or you may purchase online at dallasopera.org.

These two extraordinary evenings will consist of stirring overtures, interludes, and heartbreaking arias that crisscross time periods and geographical boundaries, performed by a stellar ensemble of young opera artists and The Dallas Opera Orchestra.

Most importantly, it will be an exceedingly rare opportunity to see six accomplished women conductors at the podium, sharing their interpretations of these much-loved works by Mozart, John Adams, Verdi, Joby Talbot, Handel, Mark Adamo, Puccini, Massenet, Jennifer Higdon, Bellini, Donizetti, Carlisle Floyd and more. The conductors have come to Dallas from Australia, Brazil, Colombia, France, Poland, and the U.S.A. to take part in this year's Hart Institute.

Working to address a long-standing career issue in the opera world, The Dallas Opera in 2015 launched a unique, new residential program-one of only three in the world-designed to provide training and career support for distinctively talented women conductors. Female conductors, as well as accomplished women singers, opera coaches, accompanists, and instrumentalists with established careers seeking to develop new skills at the podium, were encouraged to apply.

A total of 161 women conductors and professional musicians answered the call in 2017 and applied by the April 30th deadline for the Institute. Nations that were represented in this year's applicant pool were from Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, China, Colombia, Cuba, Czech Republic, Denmark, Ecuador, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Iran, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Lithuania, and Mexico; as well as New Zealand, Poland, Russia, Slovenia, South Korea, Spain, Switzerland, Taiwan, the United Kingdom, Ukraine, and Venezuela.

Applicants from these 33 countries included music directors, principal and assistant conductors, concertmasters and music staff from top-ranked symphonies, opera companies, and conservatories.

MISSION STATEMENT FROM CBSO:

Our Musical Leadership Project involves multi art forms of instrumental and choral music and creative writing, led by the CBSO Artistic Team: comprising: Composer Jeremy Clay, CBSO Lead Musician Jackie Tyler, Children’s Author Mandy Ross and a CBSO Choral Leader. Each year a new theme is chosen which becomes the focus for creative work with both primary and secondary students.  Ideas are arranged and scored for full orchestra and this leads to a number of workshops where students have sectional rehearsals with CBSO players and tutti rehearsals with a visiting conductor. The work produced is shared publicly both at the academy and in high profile venues including Symphony Hall and The CBSO Centre.  Over a five year partnership, the academy’s orchestra has developed significantly, now with over 40 members compared to just 12 three years ago.

In addition to the orchestra there has always been a vocal strand to the project with local feeder primary schools taking part in the project. Our a capella group has also been involved in the workshops over the last three years with students being involved in the lyric writing aspect of the composition work and also participating in the final performances.

Students are clearly inspired by the visiting musicians. There is now an established tradition of orchestral work at Shenley Academy and a strong relationship with the organisation that goes from strength to strength.

BERNSTEIN Trouble in Tahiti

Set in a typical residential suburb, Tahiti! tells the story of a young couple who, despite apparently having all the key ingredients for happiness and having been afforded all the opportunities to hold on to it and be truly happy, alas... are not. Using a range of dramatic strategies, such as physical theatre and puppeteering, Tahiti! explores the extent to which our lives are already mapped out even before we start living them. It questions the degree of agency we believe we have, and highlights our seemingly chronic resistance to making changes, even when current events force us to face the undisputable failure of our plans.

CHRISTOPHER WHEELDON After the Rain (Pärt: Spiegel im Spiegel)
CRYSTAL PITE Flight Pattern (Gorecki: Symphony No. 3, Mvt. 1)

The Royal Ballet celebrates contemporary ballet with a programme that includes a world premiere from Crystal Pite and works by Christopher Wheeldon and David Dawson.

The Royal Ballet celebrates the diversity and richness of contemporary ballet with a mixed programme that includes an established classic, a recent work and a world premiere: David Dawson’s first work for The Royal Ballet, an acclaimed ballet by Christopher Wheeldon and a new creation by Crystal Pite. 

Pite is one of the hottest names in dance today; her many awards include an Olivier and a Critics’ Circle Award for Polaris at Sadler’s Wells. She makes her Royal Ballet debut with a large-scale ensemble work to music by Górecki. Dawson is a leading figure in European ballet and in 2005 became the first British choreographer to create a new work for the Mariinsky Ballet. His 2013 ballet The Human Seasons for The Royal Ballet was inspired by Keats’s poem of the same name, which describes the course of a human life. Wheeldon created After the Rain in 2005 for New York City Ballet to music by Arvo Pärt. This abstract work in two parts has found an extraordinary resonance with audiences around the world.
