Haydn - Symphonies Nos. 53, 64, 96 (2017)

Haydn

Oregon Symphony Orchestra

Carlos Kalmar

Many composers have cause to envy Haydn. During his nearly 30-year tenure as court composer for the Esterházy family, Haydn enjoyed complete job security (something his colleague Wolfgang Amadé Mozart chronically lacked), access to a better-than-average orchestra, and freedom to compose what he liked. As Haydn himself observed, “My
Prince was always satisfied with my work. Not only did I have the encouragement of constant approval, but as conductor of the orchestra I could experiment, find out what made a good effect and what weakened it, so I was free to alter, improve, add, or omit, and be as bold as I pleased. Cut off from the world, I had no one to bother me and was forced to become original.”

Since the Oregon Symphony was established more than 100 years ago, it has been recognized for its internationally acclaimed music directors, skilled performers, diverse programs and outstanding community services in education and regional touring.

Carlos Kalmar

In May, 2011 he made his New York debut at Carnegie Hall with the Oregon Symphony as part of the inaugural Spring for Music festival. Both his imaginative program Music for a Time of War and the performance itself were hailed by critics in the New York Times, New Yorker magazine and Musical America, and the concert was recorded and released on the PentaTone label, subsequently earning two Grammy nominations (Best Orchestral Performance and Best Engineered). Under Kalmar’s guidance the orchestra recorded a second CD on the PentaTone label – “This England,” featuring works by Britten, Vaughan Williams, and Elgar.Carlos Kalmar is in his twelfth season as music director of the Oregon Symphony. He is also chief conductor and artistic director of the Spanish Radio/Television Orchestra and Choir in Madrid, and artistic director and principal conductor of the Grant Park Music Festival in Chicago.
