Stravinsky - Orchestral Works (2018)

Stravinsky

Orchestre Philharmonique du Luxembourg

Gustavo Gimeno

This double album offers a testimony to Stravinsky’s overwhelming musical heritage, covering all the phases of his creative life. Igor Stravinsky (1882-1971) is twentieth-century music!

More than any other composer, he continued to develop his compositional style throughout his seven-decade-spanning career, innovating and adopting all the most important musical trends of his century. Historically, the musical journey starts with one of the first recordings of the recently rediscovered Funeral Song (1909), composed as a tribute to his teacher Rimsky-Korsakov.

The next phase in his development is represented with the raw but tremendously refined Rite of Spring (1913), Stravinsky’s most famous work that created a scandal at its Paris world premiere, and immediately turned him into a star. His Neoclassical style is showcased by Jeu de cartes (1937) and the Concerto in D (1947), whereas Agon (1957) presents Stravinsky’s original take on Schoenberg’s serialism.

This multifarious repertoire is performed by the Orchestre Philharmonique du Luxembourg and their Music Director Gustavo Gimeno, who continue their acclaimed Pentatone series of composer portraits that already featured monographs of Shostakovich, Bruckner, Ravel, and Mahler.

Gustavo Gimeno

Born in Valencia, Gustavo Gimeno began his international conducting career in 2012, when at that time he was a member of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra Amsterdam, as an assistant to Mariss Jansons. Significant experience was also harnessed in assisting Bernard Haitink and Claudio Abbado, with whom he forged an intense and influential mentorship. Following his acclaimed conducting debut with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra in 2014, Gustavo Gimeno took up the post of Music Director of the Orchestre Philharmonique du Luxembourg with the 2015-16 season. In his second season, he continues this partnership with a focus on the great orchestral literature including Mahler Symphony No. 4, Beethoven Symphony No. 7, Ravel’s “Daphnis and Chloé”, Stravinsky’s “Sacre” and new commissions of Mark-Anthony Turnage and Francisco Coll. Aside from his Music Director commitments in Luxembourg, Gustavo Gimeno has collaborated with a select list of orchestras including Munich Philharmonic, Cleveland Orchestra, City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, Orchestre National de France, Rotterdam Philharmonic, and the Philharmonia Zurich. In 2015, Gimeno led the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra on tour to Asia. In 2016-17 season, Gimeno will make his debut with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, the National Symphony Orchestra in Washington, D.C. and the Orchestra of the Academy of Santa Cecilia. He will also appear in Vienna twice that season, with the OPL at the Wiener Konzerthaus and with Vienna Symphony at the Musikverein. “His musical rhetorics are refined, his grip on the structure of the compositions is accurate and convincing” observed Joep Stapel in the NRC Handelsblad, “Gimeno knew how to keep the tension and made the musicians … excel.”
