György Ligeti Lontano Gustav Mahler Symphony in D major no. 9 __________________ Hugh Wolff presents two perennial works from the modern repertoire. Ligeti’s dreamy Lontano was used in the bloodcurdling thriller Shutter Island while in the fierce yet ironic Ninth Symphony, the last of his works to be fully completed, Mahler seems to be issuing a challenge in the face of death itself. Hugh Wolff mène ses troupes à travers deux œuvres dont la modernité ne tarira jamais. On retrouve notamment le Lontano rêveur de Ligeti repris dans le film terrifiant Shutter Island. Et dans sa redoutable et ironique Neuvième Symphonie, la dernière qu’il parvint à terminer, Mahler semble défier la mort. Hugh Wolff voert zijn troepen aan in twee eeuwig moderne werken. Ligeti’s dromerige Lontano werd onder meer gebruikt in de ijzingwekkende film Shutter Island.
En in de grimmig-ironische negende symfonie, de laatste die hij volledig kon afwerken, lijkt Mahler de dood wel uit te dagen.

Did you know that ...Symphony No. 9 by Gustav Mahler was voted the 4th greatest symphony of all time in a survey of conductors carried out by the BBC music magazine?
