Transcription

1 Metamorphosis labyrinth of interpretations in word, sound, image, light and movement grew out of the A Biblical text For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Be it the sinful Faust of Marlowe or the heroic one of Goethe, or Schubert s Gretchen am Spinnrade, or Mendelssohn s Walpurgisnacht and its Finnish cousin the Vappu tradition, Weber s Freischütz, Stravinsky s lifelike Faust, The Soldier s Tale, closer to our everyday experience. Or Bulgakov, who uses Goethe s Faust as the backdrop to his own magnificent work. And more Busoni s masterly Doktor Faustus or Pousseur s Miroir de votre Faust a metamorphosis of a metamorphosis, a kind of magic river that carries the whole history of music along in a single, uninterrupted flow from Marlowe to yesterday. T he true story of Dr Johann Faust the alchem- ist is merely the seed that generated this tree of masterful fantasies. An artist does not copy he steals, then lets his imagination transform his work into a new, never-done-before reality This applies to all the masters mentioned but also to a few more who gallantly helped us to grow our own tree of dreams. H aydn s Mercurio, Mozart s Jupiter, Schubert s An die Sonne, Holst s Neptune, Kurt Weill s A Touch of Venus, Mahler s Lied von der Erde begin the festival in a concert planned as a leisurely walk between houses of light. Thereafter the Duke Ellington jazz version of Tchaikovsky s Nutcracker, Unto Mononen s Satumaa, Sibelius s Pelléas et Mélisande or his sublime Landscape with Cranes, Martinu s La revue de cuisine and Couperin s Leçons de ténèbres and a lot more besides: just take a look at this book of surprises so cruelly named The Advance Brochure. And last but not least most important of all: Welcome! Do not miss this feast of music for it happens only in Kuhmo and only once in the same way under the same stars. Vladimir Mendelssohn Artistic Director

3 21.15 Kuhmo Arts Centre Earth: Dearest Moon, I know you can speak and answer my questions for you are a person (after all). So I have been told by countless poets and infants. Is it true that you are inhabited by people, as alleged by Orpheus and a thousand other philosophers? A certain David Fabricius* even claimed to have seen, with his telescope, your inhabitants drying their linen out in the sun. Is it so that your people are driven in their endeavours by proud, selfish, even brutal deeds? Moon: Forgive me Monna** if I answer too freely, for I am only your humble servant. I do not really understand... I do not know ambitions, cupidity, nor conquest or wars, those ways do not prevail on my planet If you could raise your voice to be heard by Uranus or Saturn and you could ask them what really matters, you would receive the same answer as I get from Venus and Mercury when they circle closer to me. Even the Sun would give you the same answer, noble princess Earth: Forgive me, Celestial Moon, the humans which dwell on me assure me great happiness in the near future, I bear hope Moon: Hope as much as you wish, noble mistress, you will have to be content with hoping forever... * Late 16th century Dutch astronomer **Leopardi uses the shorter synonym for Madonna Reflections on Giacomo Leopardi s Dialogo della Terra e della Luna Gustav Mahler ( ): Das Lied von der Erde Hellekant, Bäckström, Seo, Gleisner, Sallinen, Luoma, Hiilivirta, Vähälä, Marquise-Gilmore, La Marca, Weijenberg, Simon, Ritavesi, Pedrini, Ferchen, Nurminen, Stasevska The friend of this concert is Kainuun Sanomat Salakamari 15/11 Live Poets Club/Men s Night Kiiskinen, Nieminen, Pyysalo, Vuola Music for Harp Magen

And she began to investigate my private life like an FBI agent! I didn t want to tell her that I was a bandoneon player, because I thought, She will throw me from the fourth floor. But finally I confessed and she asked me to play some bars of a tango of my own. She suddenly opened her eyes, and told me: You idiot, that s Piazzolla! And I took all the music I had composed, ten years of my life, and sent it to hell in two seconds. Piazzolla s account of his first lesson with Nadia Boulanger.

And Ravel went on asking Gershwin if he had the good and wealthy life he deserved as a well known composer.

12 Thursday Passion(e) In your last letter you wrote that you couldn t live without me anymore. We are like leaves from different trees blown together by friendly winds... What will happen when they meet? You a teacher of French and me, a humble vintner. Imagine our life together: Me, a peasant who reads Manzoni, Tolstoy and Sienkiewicz but still aware of my cultural shortcomings. And you with your beautiful skin and incredible lips, screwing up your delicious nose when I stumble over some complex pronunciation. This is extraordinary, isn t it? Give me a kiss my love, sulk on me... If I think of the mouldy scents that make up the charm of my village house, I can only imagine that you ll feel like a melancholic stranger there, you will shut yourself in like a hedgehog! You once told me that the big city, the noise of cars, ambulance sirens and trams are like a drug, helping you to work during the day and fall asleep at night. You will never be able to change this life for the dusty slopes of my village. Hurry, the priest is prepared to marry us on Monday before sunset, if you can only get here in time. And all your family and friends are welcome. They can sleep at the Termal Hotel. All. At my expense. In the evenings (as I already told you) I have this horrible habit of enjoying watching television. It might be terrible since so you say you refuse to watch it because your concierge has got one too. And on Sunday you will look at me as you would at a troublesome fly when I discuss the latest Juventus match with my friends. I can t help it, I really like this team. Sometimes why hide it you will also watch the match. Cursing me, I imagine. You will curl up in a corner of the armchair trying to read your Teilhard de Chardin (is the spelling right?) and pretending you are not there. Come, come my love, take a plane, an interplanetary rocket, a flying carpet. Time feels endless without you. I cannot wait any more, come my treasure, let s be unhappy.

Intermission The model Dr. Johann Georg Faust (c ), was a brilliant, disreputable astrologer/alchemist from Staufen in Breisgau. Accused of practising black magic, he was executed in 1540 to the bigoted satisfaction of his fellow-villagers and loving neighbours. A German chapbook about his sins translated into English in 1587 captured the undivided attention of Christopher Marlowe, resulting in his Doctor Faustus. It was a success. And as the mantle of lie wraps itself around any success, the Metamorphoses flowed forth. Reinvented by Goethe, who was familiar with Marlowe s work, the new fictional Faust came to completely overshadow the actual tale of the alchemist. And yesterday, in the Stalinist underworld of Bulgakov (The Master and Margarita), Mephisto, metamorphosed into a huge black cat, boards a tram in Moscow and insists on paying for his ticket. He is now a law-abiding Soviet citizen hoping to rent Berlioz s now seemingly vacant flat. Even cats bow in front of the Goethean subtext. Remember Dr. Faust the alchemist? Not much left apart from the intellectual provocation or vision of the biblical message.

22 The Celebration of Time Joseph Haydn ( ): Clockwork Music Zahharenkova In 1780 a rather interesting character appeared in Prince Esterhazy s famous orchestra, a priest named Primitivus Niemecz. Besides playing the cello, being the new court librarian, a scholar and writer, he also played keyboards and did music-machine maintenance. In no time at all, his music boxes and clockwork organ caught the attention of Haydn, who thereupon wrote 32 pieces for the clockwork organ. And Niemecz made three exquisite machines to Haydn s specifications. Intermission The Abolition of Time Ludwig van Beethoven ( ): 33 Variations on a Waltz by Anton Diabelli in C, Op. 120 for Piano Sigfridsson Useless to play advocates to Beethoven. But we might just mention one of the endless revolutions brought (un)willingly into the world of sound by the Bonn maestro. The honour of being neglected in those variations goes entirely to Diabelli. The practical indifference to the musical material and microstructure, the Lisztian introduction in the first movement and the gradual abolition of time in the variations made the road to the Lied von der Erde not long any more. Like all modern music, it leaves us with an unanswered question: Is it a step forward or a step towards autodestruction? There is, after all, an answer It is an unavoidable masterpiece.
