Maria Radutu, Zyklus GLASWEISE KLASSIKER

CLASSICS BY THE GLASS

Four concerts with servings of wine | Curated by Maria Radutu

Audiences who attend a Maria Radutu concert expecting a traditional evening of piano are in for a surprise. The Austro-Romanian pianist does more than give a concert; she enters into a conversation with her audience, getting behind the notes on the page, and enticing the listener into new worlds of musical experience, while always seeking the path untrodden. As the conductor Donato Cabrera once observed, “There is absolutely no filter between what she feels and what she wants to convey to her audience”. This robustly direct approach will no doubt be evident in her concert cycle at MuTh. The series starts with the contents of her debut album, and it ends with music by the composers featured on her latest recording, namely Mieczysław Weinberg and Dmitri Shostakovich. This musical journey in between includes fiery rebirths and sleepless nights on an overnight train. Musical wine tasting: An hour and a half before each concert, there will be a hosted tasting of nine wines. Each will be perfectly matched to the musical programme of that evening’s concert, and also to the stories which gave rise to the music. For those attending, the interplay between aroma and music will offer a multi-sensory experience.

Insomnia. On sleepless nights, perhaps all of us - those who are happy and those who are sad (and those who are both), those who have a classical background and those who don’t, singletons and couples alike - could spend each hour listening to music? December 21st would be the ideal date to try this out. December 21st is the shortest day and the longest night of the year. The sun is at its lowest, and it marks the start of astronomical winter. Eerie moods; white landscapes; mysterious moments of beauty in sound: through a live experience, incorporating videos created specifically on the theme of insomnia, Maria Radutu lets us into her personal history, in a project which was inspired by the many journeys she has made by overnight train between Bucharest, Vienna, and Paris. Sometimes, not being able to sleep can be a fascinating experience! The pre-concert wine tasting: BLIND TASTING – On this, the longest and darkest night of the year, we will have a blind wine tasting. The identities of all nine wines will only be revealed just before the concert. You’re bound to be surprised! The wine tasting takes place an hour and a half before the concert, and is open to all who subscribe to the GLASWEISE KLASSIKER cycle. The wine tasting is not included in tickets purchased for this individual concert.

PHOENIX steers us through cheerfulness and melancholy, mania and stability. The programme aims to let the listener experience the richness of each of these emotional worlds in a single evening. It is a voyage which takes in twelve ports of call, namely twelve piano pieces by composers ranging from Frédéric Chopin to Mikael Karlsson. While the music is being performed, paintings by the artist Felicia Gulda are projected for the audience. Each painting was inspired by the piece of music it accompanies. In the words of Maria Radutu: “PHOENIX is the transformation of the youthful, passionate, unfettered soul, through a process of escape and loss, into self-confidence and maturity. An evening full of music, with a few stories - an evening to help us feel all those emotions once again.” The pre-concert wine tasting: WINE REBORN We take a look at recent discoveries - and also some comebacks - in the world of wine. Our aim: to leave behind the well-trodden path, and make new discoveries. This calls for courage and daring! The wine tasting takes place an hour and a half before the concert, and is open to all who subscribe to the GLASWEISE KLASSIKER cycle. The wine tasting is not included in tickets purchased for this individual concert.

The Roman goddess Concordia was always shown carrying a horn of plenty. She personified virtues such as unanimity, understanding and harmony, all qualities which are clearly needed when musicians play together. And these characteristics are very much in evidence when Maria Radutu performs with other MuTh artists such as Sophie Heinrich and Matthias Bartolomey. We hear piano quintets by Mieczysław Weinberg and Dimitri Shostakovich. These two composers not only suffered similar fates, with both experiencing repression under Josef Stalin’s reign of terror; they were bound together by a lifelong friendship, and each held the other in high esteem. They also inspired one other, and this led to lavish masterpieces such as their quintets: powerful and sensitive, with an explosive power!  The pre-concert wine tasting: CUVÉE CONCORDE - Each of this evening’s wines is the product of a friendship between winemakers - wines which have developed out of a shared inspiration and a sense of partnership. The wine tasting takes place an hour and a half before the concert, and is open to all who subscribe to the GLASWEISE KLASSIKER cycle. The wine tasting is not included in tickets purchased for this individual concert.
