St David’s Hall Concert Season Tymor Cyngherddau Neuadd Dewi Sant

2013-14

Welcome to St David’s Hall! Croeso i Neuadd Dewi Sant! As my journey continues in Cardiff, it’s a real pleasure to introduce the 2013-14 season, which is simply bursting with the most wonderful music and I urge you all to come and explore these remarkable scores with us. This season is particularly special because our renowned Chorus celebrates thirty glorious years of music-making. I’m delighted to be working with them twice: both opening the season with Poulenc’s Gloria and closing it in June with Brahms’s mighty German Requiem.

A minnau’n dilyn fy hynt yng Nghaerdydd, pleser o’r mwyaf ydi cyflwyno tymor 2013-14, sy’n heigio o gerddoriaeth gyda’r mwyaf bendigedig ac rwy’n pwyso arnoch chi i gyd i ddod aton ni i chwilio’r sgorau rhyfeddol hyn. Mae’r tymor yma’n arbennig yn anad unpeth am fod ein Corws o fri yn dathlu deng mlynedd ar hugain godidog o gerddora. Rwyf wrth fy modd o fod yn gweithio gyda nhw ddwywaith: yn cychwyn y tymor â Gloria Poulenc ac wedyn yn ei ddwyn i ben ym mis Mehefin â Requiem Almaenig aruthrol Brahms.

On the theme of birthdays, we’re pleased to welcome back illustrious pianist John Lill in his 70th birthday year with our esteemed Conductor Laureate Tadaaki Otaka. Other highlights include Jac van Steen with a colourful programme of Bartók and Martinu˚, and Grant Llewellyn with two celebratory concerts for Christmas and St David’s Day.

A sôn am benblwyddi, rydym yn falch o groesawu yn ei ôl y pianydd o fri John Lill ar ei ben-blwydd yn ddeg a thrigain gyda’n Harweinydd Llawryfog mawr ei barch Tadaaki Otaka. Ymhlith uchelfannau eraill mae Jac van Steen mewn rhaglen liwgar o Bartók a Martinu˚, a Grant Llewellyn mewn dau gyngerdd i ddathlu’r Nadolig a Dydd Gwˆ yl Dewi.

Join us! Thomas Søndergård, Principal Conductor

Dewch aton ni! Thomas Søndergård, Prif Arweinydd

Tasmin Little plays / yn chwarae Szymanowski Friday / GWENER 15.11.2013, 7.30pm Szymanowski Concert Overture / Agorawd Cyngerdd Szymanowski Violin Concerto No 2 / Concerto Ffidil Rhif 2 Brahms Symphony No 1 / Symffoni Rhif 1 Conductor / Arweinydd Olari Elts Violin / Ffidil Tasmin Little Tasmin Little, one of Britain’s leading violinists, plays Szymanowski’s richly romantic Second Violin Concerto. Brahms’s majestic First Symphony commences in a mood of high tragedy and closes in a burst of irresistible life-giving energy – it’s easy to see why his friends and contemporaries dubbed it “Beethoven’s Tenth”. Tasmin Little, un o ffidleriaid blaenllaw Prydain, yn chwarae’r Ail Concerto Ffidil. Cychwynna Symffoni Gyntaf fawreddog Brahms mewn awyrgylch trasiedi aruchel a daw i ben mewn hwrdd o egni bywiocaol diwrthdro – hawdd gweld pam roedd ei ffrindiau a’i gydoeswyr yn ei galw’n “Ddegfed Beethoven”.

Rachmaninov & Prokofiev Friday / GWENER 28.11.2013, 7.30pm Prokofiev Piano Concerto No 3 / Concerto Piano Rhif 3 Rachmaninov Symphony No 2 / Symffoni Rhif 2 Conductor / Arweinydd Eivind Gullberg Jensen Piano Nelson Goerner In its heart-felt lyricism and power, Rachmaninov’s Second Symphony is one of his most dearly-loved works. It shares this Russian-themed concert with the lyrical bitter-sweet romance and cosmopolitan glamour of Prokofiev’s Third Piano Concerto, played by the expressive Argentinian pianist Nelson Goerner. Daw telynegiaeth a grym Ail Symffoni Rachmaninov o eigion calon ac mae y mwyaf hoff o’i weithiau. Mae’n rhannu’r cyngerdd Rwsiaidd yma â rhamant chwerwfelys telynegol a hudolieth aml-genhedlig Trydydd Concerto Piano Prokofiev, a chwaraeir yma gan y pianydd ifanc o’r Ariannin Nelson Goerner.

In his lyrical and uplifting Requiem, Brahms wrote a work of hope shot through with a powerful sense of calm and serenity.
