Nekaj čarobnega

Orkester je čarobna tvorba. Kot ogromen organizem, sestavljen iz drobnih nevidnih nitk. Tisti, ki ste pogledali film Avatar, boste vedeli o čem govorim. O tistem drevesu, na katerega se povežejo vsa bitja planeta. Z drobnimi nitkami. In se začutijo.      Dirigent je drevo. Nekdo, ki razporedi energijo med maso instrumentov in ljudi. Nekdo, ki vzame kričanje violinam in ga preda čelom. Nekdo, ki ljubezen iz strun viol pošlje pihalom ali odvzame bes trobentam in ga položi na opne bobnov… Orkester je nekaj tako čudovitega, da se včasih težko ubesedi. Že, ko sem bila majhna, sem sanjala o tem, da bi nekoč bila del takega sestava. In ko sem hodila na operne in baletne predstave, so me ob prvih zvokih uverture, oblile solze. Zvok orkestra se mi je zdel tako čaroben, mogočen in lep, da vse te lepote duša preprosto ni prenesla…   In kasneje, ko sem že bila članica orkestra, se mi je še vedno zgodilo, da so me sredi igranja oblile solze. Da me je dušilo od vsega lepega. Od lepote glasbe, drhtenja strun pod prsti ali vibriranja lesenega ljubimca ob katerega sem se privijala. Tudi tokrat ni bilo nic drugače. Kljub temu, da sem v novo sezono […]

Doctor Zhivago, one of the most beautiful and touching love stories in the world of art, is a famous novel by the Russian writer Boris Pasternak, for which he was awarded a Nobel Prize for Literature in 1958. In his outstandingly personal and philosophical story the author also contemplates on different aspects of system and the impact of the Revolution on humans and their social devaluation – the themes that were of course rather inconvenient for the authorities in the then Soviet Union. Therefore, in the face of great pressure put upon him, the writer had to renounce the prestigious prize.  After that his Doctor Zhivago remained rather unwonted at home, where the novel only re-established its true value after the social changes that occurred in the 1990’s. In the meantime, the novel became a huge success in the West, where it was translated into many languages. Particularly exposed in the novel’s renowned British-American film version, directed by David Lean in 1965, was an intimate story about the romance between Doctor Zhivago and Lara, which, after enthralling the audience and the film world alike (and receiving six Oscars and five Golden Globes), became a cult classic. Due to the fact […]

Othello

Verdi was enraptured with the playwright William Shakespeare, whom he considered »an authority in the field of human heart«, from the earliest stages of his creating. He composed Macbeth, where he found himself trapped by his lack of composing experience, created a rather remarkable opera Falstaff and also dreamt of writing music for Hamlet and King Lear, which unfortunately remained undone. Sixteen years after Aida and the making of his Requiem, he and his librettist Boito conceived together one of the greatest masterpieces, considered by wild consensus of musical connoisseurs as one of the most beautiful operas of all times. The reform of the opera, thoroughly perfected by Wagner, deeply influenced Verdi as well, who was thus guided by its much needed refinement at the time, when he was working on Othello. Thus devised within the synergy between Shakespeare, Boito and Verdi was a typical music drama, which was already warmly acclaimed by the audience at its premiere on 5th February 1887. In comparison to Aida, Verdi’s art in Othello was even more profound and thrifty in the sense of the means he used, as well as more sophisticated and richer in its musical essence.   In the year when […]
