CNSO - Czech National Symphony Orchestra

4th Subscription Concert of the CNSO in the Municipal house

200th anniversary of the birth of Czech classic Bedřich Smetana (1824–1884) is also acknowledged by the CNSO at this subscription concert. On this occasion the orchestra will perform the symphonic poem Wallenstein’s Camp. Together with the compositions Richard III and Hakon Jarl it is part of a set of three so-called Swedish symphonic poems, since Smetana wrote them (under the influence of Franz Liszt and his innovative endeavours in the sphere of programme music) in Göteborg, where he worked in the years 1856–1861. Wallenstein’s Camp captures the atmosphere of life in a military camp at the close of the day, the soldiers’ merriment as night falls and the quiet of the camp as its occupants sleep, while the guard performs his sentry duties. The reveille fanfare wakes the camp and the soldiers set out on another march.

ABOUT

200th anniversary of the birth of Czech classic Bedřich Smetana (1824–1884) is also acknowledged by the CNSO at this subscription concert. On this occasion the orchestra will perform the symphonic poem Wallenstein’s Camp. Together with the compositions Richard III and Hakon Jarl it is part of a set of three so-called Swedish symphonic poems, since Smetana wrote them (under the influence of Franz Liszt and his innovative endeavours in the sphere of programme music) in Göteborg, where he worked in the years 1856–1861. Wallenstein’s Camp captures the atmosphere of life in a military camp at the close of the day, the soldiers’ merriment as night falls and the quiet of the camp as its occupants sleep, while the guard performs his sentry duties. The reveille fanfare wakes the camp and the soldiers set out on another march. 

The Austrian-Czech composer and renowned conductor Gustav Mahler (1860–1911) expressed himself only in the media of symphony and song, maintaining a close and complex interrelationship between the two. In both genres he is today regarded as one of the greatest composers and musical visionaries of his day. Mahler wrote the songs grouped together in the free cycle entitled Five Songs on Poems by Friedrich Rückert for voice and piano in the years 1901 and 1902. More or less concurrently he set about writing the musical settings for another five of Rückert’s poems, which resulted in the cycle Kindertotenlieder (Songs on the Death of Children). Mahler’s enchantment with Rückert’s verse thus gave rise to two of the most exquisite song cycles in existence. 

Austrian composer and superb organist Anton Bruckner (1824–1896), who in 2024 shares his landmark anniversary with Bedřich Smetana, entered the musical history books chiefly as the author of a weighty collection of symphonies, of which the last (twelfth) remained as a fragment. He was continually reworking his symphonies, and hence they also exist in various versions. Towards the end of his life he even revised his entire set of symphonies virtually at the same time, as if, for him, they represented one, single oeuvre. Bruckner worked on his Symphony No. 7 in E major for two years (1881–1883) and it was first performed by the Gewandhaus Orchestra in Leipzig on 30 December 1884, conducted by Arthur Nikisch. The work’s premiere was, in fact, the 60-year-old composer’s first true success; his previous symphonies received negative reviews, or they were not performed at all. The premiere was followed by performances in Munich, Cologne, Hamburg and Graz, and only then in Vienna, the city which thus finally repaid its debt to him after long years of disfavour and hostility towards his music, which was strongly influenced by Richard Wagner.
