HOVING & MAGEN

Thu 25 Jan 2024 at 19.00, Espoo Cultural Centre
SEASON TICKET CONCERT 1: HOVING & MAGEN

Emilia Hoving, conductor
Sivan Magen, harp

Claude Debussy: Danse sacrée et danse profane
Alberto Ginastera: Harp Concerto op. 25
Richard Strauss: Le bourgeois gentilhomme, orchestral suite op. 60b

The harp is an instrument of myths and heavenly narratives. In Debussy’s Danse sacrée et danse profane, it displays both sides of its nature. Alberto Ginastera’s Harp Concerto has a Latin swing to it, drawing influences from South American folk music, but even here the magic of Orpheus’s instrument is palpable. Richard Strauss was more of a German burgher than a French nobleman. In his incidental music to Molière’s play Le bourgeois gentilhomme, Strauss pokes fun at the upstart snob but also criticises clinging to outdated ideals and the stuffy mannerisms of bygone days.

Pre-concert talk at 18.00–18.30.
Tickets from EUR 32 / 26 / 10
