Jaap van Zweden is conducting the Christmas Matinee! Childlike wonder, romance, reflection and mourning converge in Mahler’s song cycle.
The Concertgebouworkest has upheld this joyful Christmas tradition for nearly fifty years. The Christmas matinees with Bernard Haitink are legendary. It has traditionally been the chief conductor who has led the orchestra in the Christmas Matinee, or exceptionally a very highly regarded guest conductor.
This year, the honour falls to Jaap van Zweden, who has always had a special bond with the Concertgebouworkest ever since he was appointed leader at a very young age back in 1979. He is currently music director in Hong Kong and New York and a guest conductor of worldwide renown.
The concert is sure to inspire both reflection and exuberance. The world-renowned baritone Matthias Goerne sings songs from Des Knaben Wunderhorn by Mahler. Childlike wonder, romance, reflection and mourning all have their place in Mahler’s colourful song cycle. Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony is an exuberant work full of obsessively repeated rhythms. But don’t forget the very lifeblood of the whole work: the melancholy second movement.
