On top of that, the music itself is the central theme of this new festival-like event. For six days we are celebrating not only our name giver Franz Liszt, but also the 225th birthday of his idol Franz Schubert. You will hear many rarely performed works by both composers for piano solo, lied duo, cello duo, piano quintet and piano concertos with the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra. Liszt Utrecht would not be possible without the support of our partners and sponsors (see page 37).

THE PIANISTS2

Special gratitude should be given to our founding partner TivoliVredenburg, which support has been our lifeline during the past years. Finally, compliments must be given to the musicians you are about to listen to. Not only have they managed to survive the past years of inactivity, but they have also been able to refocus and return with even more energy and imagination. We applaud their perseverance and wish them much joy during Liszt Utrecht 2022.

The impact of music is very often determined by the silence that has preceded it. After the sudden cancellation of Liszt Utrecht in March 2020 a new exhilarating edition is about to start. In the meantime, a revolutionary new concept has been dreamed up to give even more (equal) opportunities for the ten excelling piano talents to present themselves.

PIANO BRANDS

Another new element is that pianists no longer can choose their preferred piano brand. Instead, they perform each recital on a different instrument.

THE SCHUBERT EDITION

MUSICIANS FIRST NEW STRUCTURE

FIRSTMUSICIANS

Just as in real life, the pianists need to make the most of the instrument that is provided. They will get a Yamaha for the all-Liszt recital, a straight strung Maene for the chamber music recital, a Steinway for the song recital, and a Fazioli for the all-Schubert recital. This creates more equal conditions for the pianists, and it gives the tuner the opportunity to better prepare the pianos for each performance. For the finals the pianists can choose any piano they like.

MUSICAL EXPERTISE

For this edition, Liszt Utrecht presents a complete new and unique structure. Starting point for this change was the question how we could create an experience for the pianists that is less about competing and comparison, and which better resembles actual concert practice. At Liszt Utrecht we believe that a competition should be less about the result and more about the value that this event can offer to young musicians: a chance to present their artistic vision to a worldwide audience through multiple Thatperformances.iswhythere are no longer consecutive rounds, with pianists playing the same pieces one after another. Instead, Liszt Utrecht is programmed as a festival with a stable concert structure for each festival day. This structure resolves one of the biggest problems for the pianists: the order of performance. Now, all ten pianists perform each recital at the same time of day.

Liszt Utrecht works with a central theme for each edition. In 2022 the repertoire focusses on one of Franz Liszt’s idols: Franz Schubert, to commemorate his 225th birthday.

A final unique aspect, hidden from the public eye, is that each pianist has had the chance to fine-tune their performances with Liszt experts Leslie Howard and Andrea Bonatta during an academy in June. So, with confidence we can assure you that you are about to witness a week full of music at the highest level. We hope you will discover some exciting unknown works by the two Franzes, but most of all we hope that you will enjoy and appreciate the result of time and effort that these amazing pianists have put into the preparation of these concerts. To us they are all designated winners. 2

NLISZT

NLISZT Liszt Utrecht thinks it is important to develop and promote young Dutch piano talent. For the first time, five upcoming Dutch pianists (up to age 23) are invited to give one performance during the festival phase. These ‘NLiszt’ concerts form a small, separate piano competition on their own.

It gives the five young talents the possibility to gain experience and develop themselves within the structure of an international piano competition. The international jury is present during these concerts and selects a winner by the end of the festival phase. This winner receives the ‘Henk de By’ award of €2500 and will perform with the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra during the Grand Finale of Liszt Utrecht! 14

The American conductor Karina Canellakis started her position in September 2019, being the first female chief conductor of a Dutch symphony orchestra. Her fellow American James Gaffigan, principal guest conductor since 2011, has prolonged his engagement until 2023. Markus Stenz has been chief conductor of the orchestra from 2012 to 2019.

REIFCHRISTIAN

RADIONETHERLANDSPHILHARMONIC

German conductor Christian Reif has established a reputation for his natural musicality, technical command and leadership as an engaging communicator and outstanding orchestra builder. He has conducted the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, Dallas Symphony, Ulster Orchestra, Romanian Radio Symphony, Aalborg Symphony, Fundación Excelentia in Madrid, North Carolina Symphony, San Antonio Symphony, Santa Barbara Symphony, Toledo Symphony, Colorado Springs Philharmonic, Orchestre National de Belgique and Orquestra Sinfonica Portuguese in Lisbon.

The Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra, founded in 1945, plays a vital role in Dutch musical life. Besides major symphonic repertoire, it performs –more than any other Dutch symphony orchestra – the music of today, often including premieres of works specially commissioned for the NTR Saturday Matinee and AVROTROS Friday Concerts broadcasting series. Innovative programme concepts such as Pieces of Tomorrow reach out to a conspicuously young audience. Almost all concerts are broadcast live on NPO Radio 4, naturally implying that the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra performs for a live audience dozens of times larger than any concert hall could ever accommodate.

The Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra was awarded an Edison Classical Award in 2014 for its contribution to the musical life of the Netherlands, and in 2017 it was awarded the Concertgebouw Prize (with the Netherlands Radio Choir). www.radiofilharmonischorkest.nl

ORCHESTRA (RADIO FILHARMONISCH ORKEST) 17

Canellakis’ predecessors include Bernard Haitink, Edo de Waart (honorary conductor), Jaap van Zweden (honorary chief conductor), Jean Fournet and Hans Vonk. Guest conductors have included Leopold Stokowski, Kirill Kondrashin, Antal Doráti, Charles Dutoit, Valery Gergiev, Mariss Jansons, Michael Tilson Thomas, Gennady Rozhdestvensky, Peter Eötvös, John Adams, Christoph Eschenbach, Vasily Petrenko, Vladimir Jurowski and Pablo Heras-Casado.
