CLASSICAL CONCERT | Gulbenkian | Praça de Espanha | FREE to 36€, with discounts

April 27, 2023 @ 20:00 - 22:00

Gulbenkian’s classical music lineup for the Spring of 2022 is, as usual, the type of entertainment that reminds us why it’s very hard to just pick up and move from Lisbon to the countryside.

Note: tickets usually sell out very fast — we try to update this list when we’re alerted that they are —  and are usually discounted for those under 30 and over 65.

 

From the organizers, the schedule through June 3, 2023:

Olivier Messiaen: The Transfiguration of Notre Seigneur Jesus-Christ by the Gulbenkian Choir and Orchestra / Myung-Whun Chung

THURSDAY, 20:00 and FRIDAY, 19:00, Tickets €20.00 – €36.00
Duration 120 min / Interval 20 min

At the same time that Myung-Whun Chung was consolidating his reputation as one of the most talented conductors of his generation, his affinity with the work of Olivier Messiaen made him a specialist in the French composer’s music. The closeness between the two would lead Messiaen to hand over to Chung the direction of the world premiere of his Concert à Quatre , in 1994, even dedicating the piece to the South Korean maestro. In the Grand Auditorium, Chung will conduct one of the most impressive religious creations by the French composer, La Transfiguration de Notre Seigneur Jésus-Christ , commissioned by the Gulbenkian Foundation, premiered in 1969. This concert is part of a tribute to Madalena de Azeredo Perdigão , on the centenary of her birth .

Rolling Stone
Earthquake Mass, 12 voices,
by Antoine Brumel, in Times of Catastrophe

In an attempt to answer the question “What can art and music mean in a time of calamity and crisis?”, the Belgian vocal ensemble Graindelavoix recreates a masterpiece of choral repertoire, the Missa Et ecce terrae motus by the French Renaissance composer Antoine Brumel. From a singular crossing with other references, Brumel is interpreted in a crossing with the painting of the Flemish Pieter Bruegel and with the neorealist documentary Il Culto delle Pietre . An artistic questioning of ideas such as the resurrection or the inertia of the modern world, always rethinking the dialogue that can be established with the past.

Shostakovich’s 11th by Gulbenkian Orchestra / Hannu Lintu

— 20 MIN BREAK —

Dmitri Shostakovich
Symphony No. 11 in G minor, Op. 103, The year 1905

The superlative interpretive capacity of cellist Mstislav Rostropovich has motivated many composers to write works designed to take advantage of the amazing technical and expressive resources of one of the most outstanding musicians of the 20th century. This is what happened with Shostakovich’s Concerto for Cello and Orchestra No. 1 which, since its premiere in 1959, has won a top place among concertante works for cello. In these concerts, this demanding role will fall to Marco Pereira, soloist of the Gulbenkian Orchestra. Under the direction of the rigorous Finnish conductor Hannu Lintu, the program is completed with the famous Symphony No. 11, also by Shostakovich.

Earthquake Mass, 12 voices,
by Antoine Brumel, in Times of Catastrophe

In an attempt to answer the question “What can art and music mean in a time of calamity and crisis?”, the Belgian vocal ensemble Graindelavoix recreates a masterpiece of choral repertoire, the Missa Et ecce terrae motus by the French Renaissance composer Antoine Brumel. From a singular crossing with other references, Brumel is interpreted in a crossing with the painting of the Flemish Pieter Bruegel and with the neorealist documentary Il Culto delle Pietre . An artistic questioning of ideas such as the resurrection or the inertia of the modern world, always rethinking the dialogue that can be established with the past.

— 20 MIN BREAK —

Dmitri Shostakovich
Symphony No. 11 in G minor, Op. 103, The year 1905

The superlative interpretive capacity of cellist Mstislav Rostropovich has motivated many composers to write works designed to take advantage of the amazing technical and expressive resources of one of the most outstanding musicians of the 20th century. This is what happened with Shostakovich’s Concerto for Cello and Orchestra No. 1 which, since its premiere in 1959, has won a top place among concertante works for cello. In these concerts, this demanding role will fall to Marco Pereira, soloist of the Gulbenkian Orchestra. Under the direction of the rigorous Finnish conductor Hannu Lintu, the program is completed with the famous Symphony No. 11, also by Shostakovich.

Gulbenkian’s classical music lineup for the Spring of 2022 is, as usual, the type of entertainment that reminds us why it’s very hard to just pick up and move from Lisbon to the countryside.

Note: tickets usually sell out very fast — we try to update this list when we’re alerted that they are —  and are usually discounted for those under 30 and over 65.

 

From the organizers, the schedule through June 3, 2023:

Olivier Messiaen: The Transfiguration of Notre Seigneur Jesus-Christ by the Gulbenkian Choir and Orchestra / Myung-Whun Chung

THURSDAY, 20:00 and FRIDAY, 19:00, Tickets €20.00 – €36.00
Duration 120 min / Interval 20 min

At the same time that Myung-Whun Chung was consolidating his reputation as one of the most talented conductors of his generation, his affinity with the work of Olivier Messiaen made him a specialist in the French composer’s music. The closeness between the two would lead Messiaen to hand over to Chung the direction of the world premiere of his Concert à Quatre , in 1994, even dedicating the piece to the South Korean maestro. In the Grand Auditorium, Chung will conduct one of the most impressive religious creations by the French composer, La Transfiguration de Notre Seigneur Jésus-Christ , commissioned by the Gulbenkian Foundation, premiered in 1969. This concert is part of a tribute to Madalena de Azeredo Perdigão , on the centenary of her birth .
