Overview

Yuja Wang joins Klaus Mäkelä and the VFO for Rachmaninoff’s urgent, virtuosically glittering Fourth Piano Concerto, followed by Mahler’s much-loved Fifth Symphony.

Completed in 1926, Rachmaninoff’s Fourth Piano Concerto ended a prolonged compositional silence following his emigration to the United States upon the Russian Revolution. Blending his Romantic DNA with more modernist language, the work sits a tensely contemplative central Largo between two fierily restless Allegro vivaces, the second a virtuoso tour de force for the pianist. Mahler wrote his Fifth Symphony in the summers of 1901 and 1902, just after meeting his wife-to-be, Alma. Its first movement is a funeral march punctuated by two trio sections, one shrilly swirling, the other more sober; the first trio then forms the basis of the second movement, which builds to a triumphant brass chorale. Next come a Scherzo featuring folk and city waltzes, and a strings-and-harp-only Adagietto, conceived as a love declaration to Alma. The joyful Rondo-Finale then reimagines the Adagietto theme, before climaxing on the second movement chorale.

Venue Info

Salle des Combins - Verbier
Location   Chemin de Plan Pra

Salle des Combins is the Verbier Festival’s main concert hall. It normally seats 1,419. Each row is on a separate tier, which guarantees an excellent view of the stage. Improvements to the soundproofing and heat insulation make this a very high-quality non-permanent venue. All of the Festival’s symphonic concerts, operas, large world music, jazz, dance events and some recitals are presented here.
