Harmony 5.



Grieg: Peer Gynt Suite
Nielsen: Clarinet Competition
Sibelius: II. symphonic

Contributed by:
Klenyán Csaba -Clarinet

Conductor:  Kornél Thomas


Henrik Ibsen completed his philosophical poetic drama Peer Gynt in 1867, which was originally intended not for stage but for prose readings. Encouraged by the success of the readings, however, he saw fit to dramatize the work, and he personally asked his compatriot, Edvard Grieg (1843–1907), to compose the accompanying music in 1874. The composer focused on the lyrical parts of the piece and wrote music for these genre-like sections. Solvejg’s song has become a real hit, as has Anitra’s exotic dance or the vortex escalating to ecstasy in the cave of the mountain king. The Danish composer Carl Nielsen (1865–1931) left a diverse oeuvre to posterity. He contributed six symphonies to the development of the genre’s history in the 20th century. Two wind concertos were also born in Nielsen’s workshop: he wrote his Flute Competition in 1926 and completed the Clarinet Competition two years later. The piece is made up of four composite movements, an experimental work in terms of its phonetic solutions. The tonality that fluctuates between F and E, according to some interpretations, reflects sudden mood changes in a bipolar personality. The soloist of the work will be Csaba Klenyán, an excellent virtuoso who is at home in the classical, romantic and contemporary repertoire. Jan Sibelius (1865–1957) had an exceptionally long life, but his active work as a composer had practically come to an end in the 1920s. Sibelius is considered the national classic of the Finns, and the style of his music gives a special blend of romance and modernism. II composed in 1902. he began writing his symphony shortly after the success of Finlandia. An important addition to the work’s sources of inspiration is that at the time of composing, Sibelius was in Italy with such a fertile atmosphere for artists. The musical material of the symphony bears the hallmarks of Russian romance, which undoubtedly contributes to the fact that, despite being the longest Sibelius symphony for three-quarters of an hour, it is one of the composer’s “audience-friendly” works.
