WorksLes Noces (The Wedding)
Violin Concerto in D major, op.35
ArtistsPatricia Kopatchinskaja (violin)
Nadine Koutcher (soprano)
Testament to the versatility and musical command that Teodor Currentzis and his unique orchestra and choir possess, this new album brings together two diverse masterworks from two titans of Russian music.
Although they have already been acquainted for a long time, this recording represents the first musical collaboration between Teodor Currentzis and the exceptional violinist Patricia Kopatchinskaja. The instant artistic rapport (an 'artistic wedding' of sorts) between these two maverick musicians can be heard in this dynamic new recording of Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto - one of the most popular works in the violin repertory.
Currentzis’ authentic approach to the folk influences in Stravinsky’s music (as revealed in 'Le Sacre du Printemps') is again very present in his interpretation of Les Noces. This work for percussion, pianists, chorus and vocal soloists - originally composed as ballet music - is probably one of Stravinsky’s most rarely recorded works. The work is based on a Russian peasant wedding, which the cover artwork references.
Exceptional to this new recording is that the MusicAeterna choir members are all native-Russian speakers who bring another level of understanding and authenticity to the work. After her prominent participation in the 'Rameau – The Sound of Light' recording, Nadine Koutcher – freshly crowned '2015 Cardiff Singer of the Year' - returns to sing the leading soprano solo part in Les Noces.
