Stravinsky - Orchestral and Choral Works (2010)

Stravinsky, Bach

Royal Flemish Philharmonic

Philippe Herreweghe

“What is important for the lucid ordering of the work – for its crystallisation – is that all the Dionysian elements which set the imagination of the artist in motion and make the life-sap rise must be properly subjugated before they intoxicate us, and must finally be made to submit to the law: Apollo demands it.”
Impossible to claim, therefore, that Igor Stravinsky is a composer of unrestrained excesses! Stravinsky referred in his revelations on composing, Poetics of Music, to the classical correlation between Dionysos and Apollo, excess and control, emo and ratio. By doing so, Stravinsky endowed his neoclassical writing with a certain philosophical permanence. It goes without saying that this ancient correlation, in which Dionysian drive evaporates into Apollonian control, should be tested out in the finales of Stravinsky’s ‘mythological’ compositions. Stravinsky, in fact, always created a remarkably Apollonian musical catharsis in these works. That is how the ‘operatorium’ Oedipus rex ends, with the literally blinding sense of guilt felt by Oedipus whose slowly fading heartbeat drives him to just within the city boundaries of Thebes.

Royal Flemish Philharmonic

A stylistically adaptable symphony orchestra, the Royal Flemish Philharmonic has the artistic flexibility to be able to interpret a range of styles in a historically responsible manner. The chief conductor, Jaap van Zweden, is responsible for the large-orchestra repertoire. His wide orchestral experience, which includes a period as Leader of the Concertgebouw Orchestra, has helped to shape the unique character of the Philharmonic. To achieve this, he works closely with the principal conductor Philippe Herreweghe who, because of his background, focuses on romantic and pre-romantic repertoire. This orchestra´s principal guest conductor is Martyn Brabbins.
