This feminine evening welcomes the Wesendonck-Lieder in the heart of the program, which Richard Wagner wrote in Zurich, a political exile after the revolts in 1848 in Germany, taken by love for Mathilde Wesendonck, a devoted admirer, her grantee (with her husband) and author of the verses. The report also inspired the composer Tristan and Isolde, of which this cycle of five songs is the preparatory cartoon. Amelia Jakobsson interprets them, a Swiss cellist with a talented soprano voice.
Provenien is from Finland Eva Ollikainen from the school of Jorma Panula who has produced excellent orchestra directors in recent decades. From the early twentieth century, between 1902 and 1905, are the pages of Gustav Mahler and Max Reger that she must then deal with. The "Adagietto" from the Symphony n. 5 of Mahler, for strings and the harp, hovers in a dimension of dreamy oblivion: the director Luchino Visconti used it as a soundtrack for the film Morte in Venice. In closing the Symphony No. 4 of a nineteen-year-old Schubert (the only one together with the fifth in minor key), which feels the influence of the Beethovenian model.
