    Czech music represents passion, verve and colour – and is thus ideally suited to get the audience in the right mood at a Waldbühne summer concert. Yannick Nézet-Séguin, one of the world stars of the younger generation of conductors, presents Antonín Dvořák’s sunny and folkloric Sixth Symphony, as well as Bedřich Smetana’s famous Moldau. In another piece by Dvořák, his violin concerto, we encounter the wonderful violinist Lisa Batiashvili.

    At this concert, Yannick Nézet-Séguin, chief conductor of the Philadelphia Orchestra, encounters Lisa Batiashvili – a both virtuoso and sensitive violinist, and thus the ideal interpreter of Bartók’s yearning Violin Concerto No. 1, in which the composer came to terms with an unrequited love. Following this, the orchestra performs Shostakovich’s 13th Symphony: a staggering accusation against anti-Semitism in the Soviet Union.

    In this concert from March 2014, and in the farewell season of his 45-year-career as principal flautist with the Berliner Philharmoniker, Andreas Blau gives a sparkling performance of Carl Reinecke’s lyrically Romantic Flute Concerto in D major, a work which the orchestra plays here for the very first time. Under the baton of the young Canadian conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin, the programme also includes Gustav Mahler’s graceful Fourth Symphony.

    This concert sees Yannick Nézet-Séguin present two of the greatest love stories in world literature – in settings whose music just quivers with emotion. First, there are Romeo and Juliet, portrayed by Piotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky with late-Romantic indulgence. In contrast are Daphnis and Chloé, whose story from atiquity is retold by Maurice Ravel in a tonal language that is sometimes delicate and sometimes angular and archaic.

    It was somewhat of a sensation when in 2010 it was announced thatthe then just 35-year-old Yannick Nézet-Séguin was to be the next music director of the Philadelphia Orchestra.Shortly afterwards, he made his debut with the Berliner Phillharmoniker. Together with Yefim Bronfman, he performed Prokofiev’s Piano Concerto No. 2. The concert also included Berlioz’s Symphonie fantastique with its wide-ranging scenarios, from airy waltzes to garish grotesquerie.
