10th Philharmonic Concert

James Conlon

Dmitri Shostakovich: Symphony No. 9 in E-flat-major Op. 70

Alexander Zemlinsky: “Die Seejungfrau” (The Mermaid) Phantasy in three movements for large orchestra, based on a fairy-tale by Hans Christian Andersen

Conductor: James Conlon
Philharmonisches Staatsorchester Hamburg

In vain does the mermaid dream of her prince in Hans Christian Andersen’s famous fairy-tale; in vain did Alexander Zemlinsky seek to liberate himself from his hopeless love for Alma Mahler. The unsuccessful wooing of the composer is reflected in this colourful, late-romantic phantasy for large orchestra, mixing imagination and reality. Conductor James Conlon leads this final concert of the season, in which the poetic, fairy-tale Zemlinsky is followed by Shostakovich’s parody of a victory symphony, his Ninth, written in 1944/45, which caused him to fall foul of the Soviet rulers.

Pre-Concert talk
60 minutes before the concert, there will be a pre-concert talk (in german) by Janina Zell.

Venue: Elbphilharmonie, Grand Hall, Platz der Deutschen Einheit 4, 20457 Hamburg
