Opening concert of the Hamburg International Music Festival

Kent Nagano

Pierre Boulez: “Répons” for six soloists, ensemble and live electronics

Ludwig van Beethoven: Symphony No. 6 op. 68 F major “Pastoral”

Kent Nagano
Live electronics: IRCAM
Philharmonisches Staatsorchester Hamburg

Pierre Boulez’s “Répons” was one of the notable highlights of Kent Nagano’s “Philharmonic Academy” in St. Michaelis at the beginning of his tenure in Hamburg. He artfully staged the “exchange speech” between the chamber ensemble and soloists as well as between electronically alienated and unalienated sounds in the sacred halls of the Michel. The major “Elbphilharmonie” project was still a construction site at the time. Ten years later, Nagano revisits this exceptional work by the composer, conductor and founder of the Paris IRCAM Institute and brings it to our new and yet already firmly established concert hall on the Elbe.
With Ludwig van Beethoven's “Pastorale” the modern one by Pierre Boulez is juxtaposed with one of the great classics of the repertoire. “Anyone who has ever had an idea of country life can imagine for themselves what the author wants without a lot of headings,” the composer tells us about his sixth symphony. In the middle of the Hanseatic city, streams, country people and shepherds' songs can be heard - or simply: the revolutionary power of simplicity.
