With the death of Mariss Jansons one year ago, the music world lost one of its greatest artistic personalities. Born the son of conductor Arvῑds Jansons in Riga in 1943, the young Mariss studied at the Leningrad Conservatory before completing his studies with Hans Swarowsky in Vienna and Herbert von Karajan in Salzburg. In 1971 he was a prizewinner at the Karajan Conducting Competition and began his close collaboration with today's St Petersburg Philharmonic, initially as the assistant of Yevgeny Mravinsky and later as permanent conductor. From 1979 to 2000, Jansons was Music Director of the Oslo Philharmonic; from 1997 to 2004 he conducted the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra; and in the 2003/04 season he became Chief Conductor of the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks and the Bavarian Radio Chorus. The 2004/05 season marked the start of his tenure at the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra Amsterdam, which ended in 2015. As a guest conductor, he worked with all the leading orchestras of Europe and the USA, and his discography includes many award-winning recordings. An honorary member of major music societies, Jansons received numerous awards during his lifetime, including the Hans von Bülow Medal of the Berlin Philharmonic, the Bavarian Maximilian Order for Science and Art, the prestigious Ernst von Siemens Music Prize, and the Grand Merit Cross with Star of the Federal Republic of Germany.
This is a live recording of the symphonic interludes from Strauss’s Intermezzo and Brahms’s Fourth Symphony, performed on 8 November 2019, documenting the last concert by Mariss Jansons with the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks in Carnegie Hall, New York.
