節目介紹 在今晚的音樂會,兩首展示「小提琴的藝術」的作品中間相距了近300年之久 — 羅卡蒂利總稱 為《小提琴的藝術》的 12 首小提琴協奏曲在 1733 年初次出版,而瑞士作曲家賈雷爾引發人們 想像的協奏曲《雲與霧》則在2016年創作,這次是該首作品的亞洲首演。 令人嘖嘖稱奇的是,和其他樂器不一樣,現代的小提琴和羅卡蒂利時代的小提琴實際上沒有甚 麼改變。事實上最珍貴的小提琴,都出自早期小提琴工匠如斯特拉瓦里(Antonio Stradivari) 等之手,他在羅卡蒂利出版其協奏曲的時候,還在製作小提琴(他活到1737年),其他著名的 小提琴工匠還有瓜爾奈利(Andrea Guarneri)和阿瑪蒂(Nicolò Amati) 。 在羅卡蒂利的年代,音樂的出版業正快速發展,為此羅卡蒂利在1729年來到當時的音樂出版中 心阿姆斯特丹,他曾在1721年於當地出版了他的第一套作品。羅卡蒂利的創作事業反映了出版 行業在國際間的蓬勃發展:當他移居到這個北部城市的時候,首先與勒塞恩(Michel-Charles Le Cène)合作,他在1733年為羅卡蒂利發表了編號為作品3的《小提琴的藝術》協奏曲。勒 塞恩的岳父羅傑爾(Estienne Roger)用嶄新方法印刷音樂,他把整部作品刻在銅版上,而不是 逐個音符地構起樂句、小節和音行。當時仍相當普遍的意大利舊式印刷在譜寫快速音符時十分 費勁,而羅傑爾的方法則使印刷這樣的段落相對地容易了。 羅卡蒂利與勒塞恩的合作只維持了一段時間,不久他獲得了正式的版權出版自己的作品,在 1732年發表了長笛奏鳴曲(作品2),1736年出版三重奏鳴曲(作品5),又在1737年發表了為 小提琴和持續低音而寫的室樂奏鳴曲(Sonate da Camera,作品6)。1741年和1744年,他又 先後出版了四重協奏曲(Concerti à Quattro,作品7)和三重奏鳴曲(作品8) 。 下半場是德伏扎克最富波希米亞感染力的交響曲(第八交響曲,它又有一個關於出版的故 事)。德伏扎克在生時,其最早的四首交響曲都鮮為人知,所以我們曾稱第八交響曲為第四。 它也被一些權威學者冠以「英國」交響曲的別號。德伏扎克的確經常造訪英國, 1884 年至 1896 年間至少九次到訪英國,也在倫敦指揮了這首交響曲,但第八交響曲並不是在英國首演 的。反而他的第七交響曲才真正是為英倫而作(1885 年由皇家愛樂協會委約),翌年他在列斯 音樂節指揮他的合唱曲作品《聖魯德米拉》(St Ludmilla) 。 這首 G 大調的交響曲有此別號是因為德伏扎克曾把它交給英國出版商諾韋洛(Novello)出版 (後來也是艾爾加的出版商)。這段時間,德伏扎克正與他慣常合作的出版商西姆羅克(Simrock) 產生矛盾。德伏扎克當時在國際間聲望漸隆,他覺得西姆羅克所付的酬金與他當時的地位不相 稱。他成功說服出版商把他那首第七交響曲的酬金由原來的三千馬克增加一倍,不過也同時應 允創作第二套(十分暢銷的)斯拉夫舞曲。但是西姆羅克只答應給德伏扎克的第八交響曲一千 馬克,聲稱大型作品的銷路並不理想。同時,德伏扎克也十分不滿西姆羅克用德語(安東)而 不是捷克語書寫他的名字。因為這首交響曲,兩者的關係就破裂了。直到德伏扎克由美國歸 來,他們的關係才見改善,他最後一首交響曲(第九交響曲),便再次由西姆羅克出版。 德伏扎克在1892年獲劍橋大學頒發榮譽博士,這是他與英國的另一段關係。他因此把第八交響 曲呈上,作為獲取學位必須要做的「功課」。 11


羅卡蒂利(1695–1764)

《小提琴的藝術》,作品 3: D大調第12協奏曲, 「和聲的迷宮」 快板 — 隨想曲 廣板 — 急板 — 慢板 快板 — 隨想曲

意大利作曲家和小提琴家羅卡蒂利,是個名副其實 的神童。他在1695年出生於貝加莫(Bergamo), 被 市 內 主 要 的 教 堂 聖 母 大 殿 ( Santa Maria Maggiore)錄取,後來教會批准他繼續到羅馬求 學,他在羅馬也許師從柯里利(Corelli),但更有 可能是柯里利的對手瓦倫蒂尼(Giuseppe Valentini)。但羅卡蒂利並沒有一直留在意大利。 他後來移居到阿姆斯特丹,除了作曲和演奏,還成 為音樂出版商。因此他在 1764 年去世時,是一個 相當富有的儒雅之士。 據說羅卡蒂利演奏時,經常站起來,有時演奏至三 小時之久。人們形容他的演奏像「地震」,但同時 他的表現也很沉實,衣冠楚楚。他在柏林覲見普魯 士王時,穿著藍色的、鑲有銀線的罩袍,佩上鑽石 指環,隨身帶著一把劍。他演奏時激情洋溢,據稱 一年就會損耗掉12把弓。 在往來羅馬和阿姆斯特丹的六年間,羅卡蒂利曾造 訪過曼托瓦(Mantua)、慕尼黑、德累斯頓、柏 林、卡塞爾(Kassel)和威尼斯。他的12首《小提 琴的藝術》協奏曲(作品 3),就是題獻給威尼斯 的貴族米歇利尼(Girolamo Michiellini)的。羅卡 蒂利在樂譜中寫了一段關於米歇利尼的題字:「他 來到那些著名的教堂崇拜中,聽我與出色的、陣容 無比龐大的樂隊一起演奏我的協奏曲,並以非常優 雅的言辭誇讚我。」至於是哪些教堂崇拜,我們無 從稽考。威尼斯最著名的教堂 — 聖馬可大教堂 (Basilica San Marco)— 雖然從蒙台威爾第的時代 開始以音樂演奏著稱,但卻沒有任何關於羅卡蒂利 在那�演奏的�錄。

12

12 首協奏曲之間並沒有甚麼關連,但總體而言的 確代表了當時最頂尖的小提琴技巧,尤其是高音部 份,對後來包括帕格尼尼在內的小提琴家都影響至 鉅。我們聽的是最後一首,它採用的曲式與作品 3 中其他的協奏曲一樣,在第一和第三樂章的末尾加 上了兩節華采段般的隨想曲。第三樂章的隨想曲出 現於樂隊最後一次演奏的重複段落之前,它至少與 之前的篇幅一樣長。雖然這些隨想曲一般都清晰地 寫了出來,但(尤其終樂章)往往留有空間讓獨奏 者即興發揮,現時還有一些當時的例子保存下來, 例如慕尼黑小提琴家雷伯(Gottfried Dominicus Reber)在1743年的演奏,它與羅卡蒂尼原先的出 版正好相隔了10年。 第 12 首協奏曲有一個獨特的元素,是其他 11 首協 奏曲中沒有的。它有自己的名稱,即《和聲的迷 宮》。羅卡蒂利續寫道:「進入容易,逃出困難。」 因此大家都要份外留神了! 第一樂章由踏步般的附點上行音,以及兩個半小節 的下行8分音符樂句展開,相當悅耳易記。獨奏一 串長音的新主題,隨即刪減為第一個隨想曲的琶 音。音域越攀越高,最後返回第一樂章開頭的主 題。廣板以其躊躇下行的4分音為樂曲降溫,獨奏 在穩定的通奏低音伴奏下蜿蜒,接著節奏轉為中段 令人意想不到的 16 分音急板,音域再次攀到極高 處, 又返回幾個小節的慢板。終樂章的節奏大搖 大擺,獨奏有一大段快速的演奏(在此大家會明白 為何羅卡蒂利把作品稱為和聲的迷宮),跌蕩上揚 的 16 分音和不斷變化的音程,雖然比起最後一個 隨想曲還是小兒科,但已足以令人激動。獨奏在奏 出自己編造的華采段後,樂隊便為全曲作出有力的 總結。

賈雷爾(1958年生)

《雲與霧》(2016)

(亞洲首演)

羅卡蒂利的作品面世 300 年後,我們回到當下。 賈雷爾的小提琴協奏曲《雲與霧》在 2016 年 1 月 22日於洛桑的大都會音樂廳(Salle Métropole)首 演,當時的演出就是由今晚的獨奏家擔綱,由洛桑 室樂團伴奏,指揮是韋勒斯坦(Joshua Weilerstein)。今晚是《雲與霧》的亞洲首演,它 的標題相當別緻,第一樂章採用了賈雷爾為比利時 伊利沙白皇后比賽創作的一首樂曲,稱為《⋯⋯像 雲一樣稀薄⋯⋯》(…aussi peu que les nuages…)。 賈雷爾在世界首演的節目表中介紹道: 「《 ⋯⋯像 雲 一 樣 稀 薄 ⋯⋯》 題 獻 給 拉 諾 伯 爵 (Count de Launoit),他是這項大賽的靈魂人 物,但在我創作此曲的時候去世了。我在構思 《雲與霧》的時候,在這小品之上加上了兩個樂 章:一個慢樂章,根據一個重複的和聲,氣氛頗 為冰冷;然後是一個終樂章,開始時一片寧靜, 接著回復到第一樂章高超的演奏技巧。事實上, 整首作品的技巧要求都很高,就算在最甜美的時 刻也如此。」 這個別緻的標題在賈雷爾的作品目錄中並非第一次 出現,他曾在1991至1992年為弦樂、豎琴、鋼琴 和敲擊樂所寫的一首早期作品用過同樣的標題。這 首作品在1992年10月22日於里昂的拉威爾音樂廳 首演,由克里文(Emmanuel Krivine)指揮里昂國 家交響樂團(Orchestra National de Lyon)演奏, 但後來他把作品從他的作品目錄中收回。現在賈雷 爾對此標題又重新作了一番解釋: 「《 雲 與 霧 》 直 接 取 自 奧 卡 爾 ( E m m a n u e l Hocquard)小說 [1985] 中的一段。這標題在我 內心深處一直有個位置,我想以它命名我的新協 奏曲來表示我的敬意。奧卡爾的作品與我想營造 的氛圍相當一致:在一種消褪的、被過濾的氛圍 之中,在樂曲的結構內,有一種律動定時重新 出現。」 協奏曲是由瑞士作品計劃(Œuvre Suisse)帶頭, 與瑞士藝術理事會(即瑞士文化基金會, Pro Helvetia)共同委約的最後一部作品(第 33 首)。

11 個瑞士的交響樂團,各自委約瑞士作曲家創作 三部新作。在 29 位參與的作曲家之中,賈雷爾是 唯一獲委約創作了三部作品的一位。他的大提琴協 奏曲《現身 — 補遺之六》 (Emergences – Nachlese VI,33首作品中的第四首),是為瑞士羅曼德交響 樂團(Orchestre de la Suisse Romande)撰寫,但 首演則由聯合委約的猶他交響樂團於 2012 年演 出,凱拉斯(Jean-Guihen Queyras)獨奏。而弦 樂四重奏與樂隊作品《��》(Spuren),則由琉 森樂團及阿迪蒂弦樂四重奏(Arditti Quartet)而 作,而最後由聯合委約的班貝格交響樂團於 2014 年首演。 小提琴以難度極高的樂音驟然進入,就像雲朵匆匆 飄遠一樣把樂隊甩在身後,但不久情調就轉變了。 緩緩膨脹的樂隊和弦使音樂的質地更為清晰,獨奏 回到綿長的線條,柔和地從伴奏樂器主要是圓號和 木管樂那��取樂音。一段��的號�,加重了不 安的氣氛,而獨奏線條變得更為複雜。突然,音樂 像被扳動一樣加速,小提琴向前直衝,來到一下突 發的銅管高潮。 由撥弦伴奏的華采段,把樂曲帶到低沉的慢樂章, 沉重的氣氛被喃喃的、牢騷滿腹的敲擊樂所加強, 包括鑼、大鼓和偶然發聲的震音板。小提琴獨奏拉 出簡短的段落,最後鼓動其他弦樂進入,而不祥的 暗流仍起伏不斷。漸漸地,一連串單獨的和弦結束 了昏沉的伴奏,獨奏攀到高音域呼吸新鮮空氣,情 調也變得輕鬆起來。 音樂像陽光驅散迷霧那樣躊躇地展開。銅管在某處 響了一下,上升的弦樂句又在另一端出現,節奏漸 漸加速,進入了終樂章。就如作曲家所稱,樂曲再 度回到開頭的速度。接著,再有一段緩慢而較深沉 的段落一直延伸到結尾,小提琴獨奏也攀到更高 處,直至幾乎超出人們的聽覺所及。

德伏扎克(1841–1904)

G大調第八交響曲,作品88 活潑的快板 慢板 優雅的快板 — 更活潑的 從容的快板

1889 年仲夏,德伏扎克在維索卡(Vysoká)鄉間 的別墅開始創作第八交響曲,他當時純粹是出於自 娛。他形容這首作品「與其他作品迥然不同,以嶄 新方式表達獨特的思想」。他之前已經向世人證明 了他能夠以傳統的方式創作傑出的交響曲,他覺得 現在可更大膽地嘗試新的形式。他採用的音調,還 有音調之間的關係 — 由大調至小調 — 也有所不 同,他創作了一首既有強烈個人風格,亦有鮮明波 希米亞氣息的作品。這首作品�發�他家鄉的情調 和純樸的鄉土氣息,滿溢歡欣的野外生趣。 1889年11月,他為樂譜作最後修改,1890年2月 2 日,他在布拉格指揮首演。兩個月後,他把它帶 到倫敦,由里赫特(Hans Richter)指揮。里赫特 在維也納指揮這首作品,德伏扎克未能出席這場奧 地利的首演,里赫特便寫信給他:「你必定會為演 出大感欣慰,我們所有人也覺得這是一首精彩絕倫 的作品,所以我們熱誠投入。可惜你這位第四交響 曲(即是第八)的生父不在現場,演出後,布拉姆 斯與我共進晚餐,我們向你舉杯祝酒致意。」 德伏扎克能夠如此輕鬆創造樂曲的旋律,所以開始 的樂章曾被比喻作一本小說,當中的角色(主題) 隨著故事的發展時隱時現,既有發展,亦會重現。 序奏中,單簧管、巴松管、圓號和大提琴以G小調 奏出舒緩醉人的旋律,當長笛獨奏彷如初醒的小鳥 把其他樂器陸續召喚起來,音樂悠然融入主音的G 大調。長笛與單簧管以 B 小調宣示輕快的第二主 旨,弦樂以三連音符在旁起舞伴奏。主題來回往 復,作曲家靈巧熟練地把各個主題加以發展。開首 深沉的主題曾經兩次重現,都是首先以 G 小調開 始,然後再次幾乎毫不著跡地過渡至大調,另外也 有一些較響亮而激烈的樂段,它們令音樂更富活 力,不過這兩者都無損全篇樂章基本的陽光氣息。 臨近結束,英國號再次引入長笛那彷如初醒小鳥的 主題,樂章隨即以亮麗的管弦色彩結束。 慢板樂章由兩個對比的樂段組成,首先以弦樂奏出 一個簡單而哀怨,若隱若現的降E大調旋律。只是 不久長笛和單簧管在一片寂靜中奏出一個新的鳥叫 聲,展示了這樂章的調性其實是C大調。主題和鳥 14

叫聲強力奏出,引出一段聽來似是較快的音樂,但 是事實上它以同樣速度寫成。首先是管樂,繼而是 小提琴獨奏奏出一些樂調作主導,從旁襯托的有大 提琴的撥奏加上低音大提琴,還有小提琴重複奏出 下降的 16 分音階,這些襯托使人想起德伏扎克祖 國的波希米亞鄉村的揚琴。兩個段落都重複再現, 然後這樂章逐漸淡出。 優雅的快板樂章與開首的樂章一樣,以G小調(諧 謔曲)開始,然後在中間的三聲中部段落轉向大 調。近乎圓舞曲的弦樂主題,配上如微波盪漾的管 樂伴奏和如軍樂響亮的音型,把音樂引向中段,長 笛和雙簧管奏出附點 8 分音/16 分音節奏,然後由 弦樂接上,切分音的銅管樂和弦作襯托。這個曲調 原本來自德伏扎克的獨幕歌劇《頑固的情人》 (The Stubborn Lovers,1874年),自從1881年在 布拉格上演後,他便收回這套歌劇。開始的圓舞曲 主題重現,音樂隨之步進尾聲,一股勁兒直奔向 前,直至最後戛然靜止。 小號以D大調響亮奏出,揭開最後一個樂章,它貫 徹這樂曲的風格,全首樂章其實不是基於D大調, 而是再次回到G大調。正如第一樂章開始時長笛的 鳥叫,這�的主題首先由一個上�的G大調和弦作 序幕,而且它與較早前出現的獨奏頗為相似。大提 琴先出現,第二巴松管則以對位伴奏,兩個段落都 重複了一次。樂章其餘的部份都是這個主題的不同 變奏,不過整個樂章多次引用第二變奏 — 它突然 加快,由全樂隊(尤其是圓號)響亮地奏出主題。 第三變奏是長笛的阿拉伯風格曲,而循環出現的第 二變奏再次奏出後,德伏扎克轉變調子,以開首長 號響亮的樂段為基礎,採用C小調,製造一段低沉 的猶如進行曲的樂段。最後回到主題,再有四個變 奏相繼出現,第二變奏最後一次奏出後,到了尾 聲,更加生氣勃勃,演奏急勁猛烈。 中文翻譯:古時月 此樂曲的樂隊編制 弦樂: 第一及第二小提琴、中提琴、大提琴、低音大提琴 木管: 長笛 (1)、長笛/短笛 (1)、雙簧管 (1)、 雙簧管/英國管 (1)、單簧管 (2)、巴松管 (2) 銅管: 圓號 (4) 、小號 (2) 、長號 (3) 、大號 (1) 定音鼓

Programme Notes Tonight the Art of the Violin is illustrated by works that are separated by nearly 300 years – from the first publication of Locatelli’s collection of 12 violin concertos issued under the collective title of L’Arte del Violino in 1733 and the 2016 concerto by Swiss composer, Michael Jarrell, with an even-more evocative title Des Nuages et des Brouillards (“Of Clouds and Mists”), here receiving its Asian première. The extraordinary thing is that – unlike most other types of instruments – the violin is virtually unchanged from the instruments from Locatelli’s day. Indeed the most prized violins are those by such early makers as Antonio Stradivari – who was still making violins when Locatelli’s collection were published (he lived until 1737) – Andrea Guarneri and Nicolò Amati. What was developing fast in Locatelli’s day was the way in which music was published, and that led Locatelli in 1729 to Amsterdam – a centre for music production where his first published works had been published in 1721. Locatelli’s career shows the growing international currency of printed: when he moved north he first went into collaboration with Michel-Charles Le Cène, who issued his Op 3 concertos L’Arte del Violino in 1733. Le Cène’s father-in-law, Estienne Roger, had devised a new way to print music, engraving whole pieces on copper plates, rather than building up phrases, bars and lines from individual notes. Back in Italy, the old way of publishing, with faster notes very laboriously notated, was still prevalent, while Roger’s process could set such passages with (relative) ease. As it happened, Locatelli did not stay with Michel-Charles for long as he obtained an official copyright to publish on his own, issuing his Op 2 flute sonatas in 1732, his Op 5 trio sonatas in 1736 and Op 6 violin and continuo Sonate da Camera in 1737. Two further sets follows – his Op 7 Concerti à Quattro in 1741 and Op 8 trio sonatas in 1744. In the second half we turn to Dvořák’s most infectiously Bohemian symphony – his Eighth (although there is another publishing story here too). Given the fact that during his lifetime Dvořák’s four earliest symphonies were unknown, the Eighth Symphony was originally known as No 4. It has also been nicknamed by some authorities his “English” Symphony, perhaps confusingly because, although Dvořák was a regular visitor to Britain (he made nine visits to the United Kingdom between 1884 and 1896) and certainly conducted this symphony in London, it was not premiered in Britain. It was his Seventh Symphony that was actually intended for England, commissioned by the Royal Philharmonic Society in 1885 and, the following year, Dvořák conducted the première of his choral work St Ludmilla at the Leeds Festival. 15


The truth behind the nickname for his G major symphony is that it was the first to be published by the English firm of Novello (later to become Elgar’s publishers). At this time Dvořák was having problems with his usual publisher, Simrock. With a growing international reputation, Dvořák felt the fees offered by Simrock did not reflect his current status. The composer had managed to persuade the publisher to double his original offer of 3,000 Marks for the Seventh Symphony, although only after promising to produce a second set of (very saleable) Slavonic Dances. But Simrock would only offer Dvořák 1,000 Marks for the Eighth Symphony claiming that large works simply did not sell well. Dvořák was also annoyed with Simrock’s refusal to spell his Christian name in the Czech way, as opposed to the German form (Anton). So, over this symphony they parted – although not for long. By the time Dvořák was returning from his American sojourn their relationship had much improved, so that his Ninth – and final – Symphony was once again published by his long-standing publisher. There is one further “English” connection to note. When, in 1892, Dvořák was given an honorary doctorate from Cambridge, he offered his Eighth Symphony as his obligatory “exercise”.

Pietro Antonio Locatelli (1695–1764)

From The Art of the Violin,

Op 3: Concerto No 12 in D, “The Harmonic Labyrinth” Allegro – Capriccio Largo – Presto – Adagio Allegro – Capriccio

Italian composer and violinist Pietro Locatelli, was obviously something of a prodigy. Born in Bergamo in 1695, he was first taken up by the city’s main church, Santa Maria Maggiore, before being allowed by the church authorities to study in Rome, perhaps with Corelli, but more likely with Corelli’s rival, Giuseppe Valentini. But Locatelli was not in Italy for long. As we have

16

seen in the introduction he moved to Amsterdam and – as well as composing and playing – he added another string to his bow (pardon the pun) by becoming a music publisher. Perhaps not surprisingly, when he died in 1764, he was something of a wealthy, cultured man. Reports of Locatelli’s playing – always standing up and sometimes performing for up to three hours – describe him as an “earthquake”, although he was always composed and dapper. He appeared before the King of Prussia in Berlin in a blue frock coat, embroidered with silver, sporting diamond rings on his fingers and a sword by his side. So passionate was his playing he is said to have worn out 12 bows a year.


During his six year itinerant existence between Rome and Amsterdam Locatelli is known to have visited Mantua, Munich, Dresden, Berlin and Kassel, as well as Venice, as his Op 3 set of 12 violin concertos, L’Arte del Violino (The Art of the Violin), is dedicated to a Venetian patrician, Girolamo Michiellini, of whom Locatelli writes in his inscription in the score “he was so gracious as to come to listen to and praise [my concertos] when I performed them with that distinguished and incomparably large orchestra in those famous church services”. As to which church services he refers to is difficult to discern. Venice’s most famous church – the Basilica San Marco – although well known for its music (from the days of Monteverdi and before) does not include any records of Locatelli having performed there. The 12 concertos are not connected, but together certainly represent a primer of virtuosic violin technique at the time, particular in the violin’s highest register. And they were influential, influencing generations of violinists and probably even Paganini. We hear the last of them, which follows the form of all its fellow concertos in adding two capriccios at the end of the first and final movements, just before the final orchestral ritornello (at least as long as the preceding music). These are always written out, but – in the finales – there is room for an improvised section, for which there are some extant, almost contemporary examples, by Munich violinist Gottfried Dominicus Reber, from 1743, just 10 years after Locatelli’s original publication.

The stepped, dotted rise and two-and-a-half descending quaver phrases that open the first movement are catchy and memorable, with the soloist entrance marked by a longer note and a new theme, which elides into the arpeggios of the first capriccio. Getting higher and higher, these eventually lead to the final return of the first movement’s opening theme. The Largo cools the temperature with its halting crotchet descent out of which the soloist meanders over a steady continuo pulse, that itself leads straight into the semiquaver flurries of a perhaps unexpected presto middle section that again gets stratospherically high, before just a few bars of a return to the Adagio. There is a rollicking swagger to the rhythm that underpins the Finale’s extensive run-out for the soloist (you can hear why Locatelli chose to call it a harmonic labyrinth here), with its welter of rising semiquavers and changing intervals, although that is little compared to Locatelli’s demands in the thrilling final capriccio – leading to the soloist’s own cadenza before the final orchestral outburst in conclusion.

Instrumentation of this work Strings: 1st & 2nd violins, violas, cellos, double basses Harpsichord Solo violin

The 12th Concerto has one unique element, not shared by the previous 11 concertos – in that it has its own name: Il Laberinto Armonico (The Harmonic Labyrinth). In fact Locatelli goes on to write: Facilis aditus; difficilis exitus, which means “Easy to enter; difficult to escape” – so hold on to your hats!

Michael Jarrell (born 1958)

Des Nuages et des Brouillards (2016) (Asian première) Nearly 300 years on from Locatelli’s we come almost up-to-date, with Michael Jarrell’s new violin concerto, which was premiered by tonight’s soloist, accompanied by the Orchestre de Chambre de Lausanne and Joshua Weilerstein in Lausanne’s Salle Métropole on 22 January 2017. Tonight is the Asian première of the evocatively entitled Des Nuages et des Brouillards (Of Clouds and Mists) which, for its first movement, adapts a piece Jarrell composed for the Queen Elisabeth Competition in Belgium, called…aussi peu que les nuages… (...as little as the clouds...). Jarrell explained in the programme for the world première: “The piece […aussi peu que les nuages…] was dedicated to Count de Launoit, who was in a way the soul of this Competition, but who died as I was composing the piece. When I conceived Des Nuages et des Brouillards, I added to this two movements: a slow movement, based on a repeated harmony with quite an icy atmosphere; then a finale which, in the beginning, is pierced with silences before revisiting the virtuosity of the first movement. In reality, the entire score is virtuosic, even in its sweetest moments.” The evocative title is not new in Jarrell’s catalogue – he had used it for an earlier work composed between 1991 and 1992, for strings, harp, piano and percussion, and premiered at Lyon’s Maurice Ravel Auditorium by the Orchestra National de Lyon conducted by Emmanuel Krivine on 22 October 1992, which has subsequently been withdrawn. Now was the title his own invention, as he explains:

18

“Des Nuages et des Brouillards directly refers to a passage in a novel by Emmanuel Hocquard [1985]. It’s a title that found a place close to my heart and I wanted to honour it by assigning it to my new concerto. Hocquard’s work corresponds to the atmosphere that I wanted to create: a faded, filtered atmosphere in which, within the structure of the score, there is a pulse that comes back regularly.” The concerto was the final commission (No 33) of the Œuvre Suisse initiative in association with the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia. 11 Swiss orchestras each commissioned three new works from Swiss composers. Of the 29 composers involved, Jarrell was the only one to contribute three works to the project. His Cello Concerto, Emergences – Nachlese VI (No 4 of the 33) was for the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande (but premiered by Jean-Guihen Queyras and cocommissioner Utah Symphony in 2012); while his Spuren for string quartet and orchestra (No 11) was for Orchestre de Lucerne and the Arditti Quartet (again premiered by co-commissioner Bamberg Symphony in 2014). The violin plunges in with virtuosic figuration, dragging the orchestra behind it as if the clouds are scudding by quickly, but eventually the mood changes. Slow swelling orchestral chords clear the textures and the soloist resorts to long solo lines with gentle snatches of other accompanying instruments – mainly horn and wind. An eerie whistle sounds, adding to the more uncertain atmosphere, as the solo line becomes more intricate. Suddenly a trigger spurs a sudden increase in tempo and the violin rushes forth, leading to a sudden brass climax.


A pizzicato accompanied cadenza leads into the lowering slow movement, its heavy atmosphere underpinned by quiet low grumbling in the percussion, including a low gong and bass drum and the occasional rattle. The violinist offers brief snatches, and eventually encourages the other strings, while the undercurrent of ominous sounds ebbs and flows. Slowly a series of separated chords ends the low drone accompaniment, and the violinist seeks air in rising to a higher pitch, allowing the mood to lighten. Hesitantly – as if the sun is evaporating the mist – the music develops – a brass utterance here, rising string snatches there, getting quicker and we are into the final movement which – as the composer remarked – revisits the speed of the very opening. Once again there is a slowing and a more contemplative passage that presides to the end, the violinist getting ever higher until it seems to evaporate out of human hearing.

Instrumentation of this work Strings: 1st & 2nd violins, violas, cellos, double basses Woodwinds: flute/alto flute (1), flute/piccolo (1), oboe (1), English horn (1), clarinet (1), clarinet/bass clarinet (1), bassoon (1), bassoon/contrabassoon (1) Brass: horns (2), trumpets (2), trombone (1) Percussion: timpani, vibraphone, tubular bell, triangle, spring-coils, vibraslap, cymbals, tam-tams, bass drum, crotales, marimba, cowbells, tom-toms Solo violin

Antonín Dvořák (1841–1904)

Symphony No 8 in G, Op 88 Allegro con brio Adagio Allegretto grazioso – molto vivace Allegro ma non troppo

When Dvořák started his Eighth Symphony in the late summer of 1889, at his country home in Vysoká, he was simply out to please himself. He described it as “different from the others, with individual thoughts worked out in a new way”. Having proved to the world that he could write masterful symphonies in the accepted form he now felt free to use a far greater degree of formal experimentation. His use of keys and their relationship – major to minor – is different, resulting in both a hugely idiomatic and unmistakably Bohemian symphony. It exudes the atmosphere and rusticity of his homeland and revels in the pleasures of outdoor life. Having completed the final touches to the scoring in November 1889, Dvořák conducted the première in Prague on 2 February 1890. Two months later he conducted it in London, where it was subsequently performed under the baton of Hans Richter. It was Richter who championed it in Vienna, writing the following to the composer who could not be present at the Austrian première: “You would certainly have been pleased with the performance. All of us felt that it is a magnificent work, and so we were all enthusiastic. Brahms dined with me after the performance and we drank to the health of the unfortunately absent father of No 4 (i.e. No 8).” So fertile was Dvořák’s facility in writing melodies that this opening movement has been likened to a novel wherein characters (the themes) appear and disappear, develop and recur within the narrative. The introduction, with its relaxed mahogany melody for clarinets, bassoons, horns and cello is in G minor, but this simply merges into the tonic G major when the solo flute, like an awakening bird, calls the other instruments to order. The lilting second subject, in B minor, is announced by the flute and clarinets over strings with dancing triplets. The development of themes, ebbing and

19


flowing, is deftly crafted and the sunny mood is neither obscured by the two reappearances of the dark-hued opening theme, both starting in G minor before once again merging almost imperceptibly into the major, nor the louder, stormy passages which move the music on with ever greater gusto. Towards the end the English horn reintroduces the flute’s original awakening theme and the movement ends in resplendent orchestral colour. The slow movement consists of two contrasted sections, opening in E-flat with a simple yearning, rising and falling melody for strings. However, it is soon evident that the true tonality of the movement is C major, with the flute and clarinet delicately punctuating the silence with a new birdcall. Forceful statements of both the theme and birdcall lead to what sounds like a faster section, but which is in fact written at the same tempo. Here – under the wind and then solo violin tune – pizzicato cellos and basses and repeated descending semiquaver scales on the violin echo the memory of the village cimbalom. Both sections are repeated, and the movement dies gradually away.

The rest of the movement is a set of variations on this theme, with the second variation – suddenly faster with the whole orchestra (especially horns) ringing out the theme – brought back throughout the movement. The third variation is for flute arabesque and, after a second airing of the barnstorming second variation, Dvořák goes off at a tangent in a C minor, droning march-like section based on the opening fanfare. Eventually returning to the theme for four more variations, there is a final sounding of the second variation before the più animato coda, played both fast and furious.

Instrumentation of this work Strings: 1st & 2nd violins, violas, cellos, double basses Woodwinds: flute (1), flute/piccolo (1), oboe (1), oboe/English horn (1), clarinets (2), bassoons (2) Brass: horns (4), trumpets (2), trombones (3), tuba (1) Timpani

As with the first movement, the Allegretto grazioso opens in G minor (Scherzo) and veers to the major for the central Trio section. The waltz-like string theme, with its rippling wind accompaniment and its martial fanfare figures, leads to the central section where flute and oboe introduce a dottedquaver/semiquaver rhythm which is then taken by the strings over syncopated brass chords. This tune originally came from Dvořák ’s one-act opera The Stubborn Lovers (1874), which he withdrew after its 1881 Prague production. A repeat of the opening waltz leads to the coda (molto vivace) which rushes headlong to a sudden, quiet close. Trumpet fanfares in D herald the final movement which, characteristically, is based not in D, but back in G major again. Here, like the opening flute birdcall of the first movement, the theme is prefaced by a rising G major triad, and bears much resemblance to that earlier solo. Introduced by the cellos, with the second bassoon accompanying in counterpoint, the two sections are both repeated. 20
