Andris Nelsons conducts Stravinsky’s “Le Sacre du printemps”

You think that 20th- and 21th-century music is complicated? Andris Nelsons, music director of the Leipziger Gewandhausorchester and the Boston Symphony Orchestra, demonstrates the contrary in this programme. Although Stravinsky’s ballet The Rite of Spring turned the music world upside down, its elemental force is conveyed spontaneously the moment we hear this musical language, which is inspired by archaic rites. The trumpet concerto by Mieczysław Weinberg is a discovery: a work of sparkling virtuosity and ambiguous irony. The soloist is the Swedish trumpeter Håkan Hardenberger. The evening will open with a tribute by the Estonian composer Jüri Reinvere to Maria Anna, Mozart's musically highly gifted sister.
