Classical Masters with Stefanie True

Programma: ‘Klassieke Grootmeesters’, met Stefanie True (sopraan). Concertmeester: Rebecca Huber

Mozart, Haydn en Mendelssohn.

For the musicians of this orchestra, playing on period instruments is as natural as breathing. The new orchestra, Symphonie Atlantique, has inspired audiences in the Netherlands as well as abroad. You can hear them play early works of Mendelssohn, Haydn and Mozart with the same zest with which these composers won the hearts of the world.

The Hague is one of the world’s greatest centres to hear early music in the world. After completing their studies at the Koninklijk Conservatorium, many musicians remain in the Netherlands and for this reason, there are many early music ensembles active in the Hague. Rebecca Huber is not only an inspired director, but also an authority in the field of historical performance. Thanks to her knowledge and passion, every concert with Symphonie Atlantique is an unforgettable experience.

Mozart Reimagined: Transcriptions and Translations

Since the beginning of time, the most popular music has been covered – arranged. It was no different with Mozart’s music. Even in his own time, many of his works were arranged.

KV 546 is Mozart’s adaptation of his own work for two pianos. Composers often reused pieces they liked. Mozart, perhaps, thought to arrange the Adagio and Fugue for strings while he was arranging some of Johann Sebastian Bach’s fugues for string quartet.

Henri Brod was a renowned oboist and instrument builder active in nineteenth century France. He arranged Mozart’s Clarinet Quintet for oboe with strings. Mozart’s quintet was so popular that it was still circulating by Brod’s time. Moreover, he made this arrangement in 1862, and it was republished in 1870 in Leipzig after Brod’s death.

The Gran Partita is another of Mozart’s most popular works. It is scored for wind instruments with four horns and basset clarinets; hence, the Gran Partita was often arranged. It is exciting to capture the many colours of the original in a different instrumentation.

This program brings together well-known works by Mozart in a different light. Playing historical arrangements on historical instruments, Symphonie Atlantique brings a different perspective to your favourite music!

On 22 August, we will reprise our concert version of Handel’s Giulio Cesare at the Openluchttheater in Bloemendaal. Our performance of the same opera at Amsterdam’s Royal Concertgebouw this April was received quite well.

At Bloemendaal, we are excited to be performing with countertenor Maarten Engeltjes, mezzosoprano Tania Kross, and Olivia Vermeulen, Ruth Willemse, Dieuwertje Luppers, and David Greco. It will be an inspiring evening!
