PARIS/FRANCE: With Chostakovich Violin concerto no 2, with Philippe Aïche as soloist, it became and agressive concert, full of sadness, and also beauty in the middle of the sadness and agressivity. This sadness and dark mood was contrasted by Beethovens 9th Symphony, which ends with the “Ode to Joy”, a poem by Friedrich Schiller.


All the first parts sadness and darkness, was a great contrast to the happening in the last part of Beethovens 9th Sympnhony which was programmed after the break,

The second violin concerto was originally created in 1967 in Moscow by David Oistrakh, it was a 60 years birthday present to Oistrakh from Scostakovich.




Philippe Aïche managed brilliantly to perform the magic of the Russian art of violin in this extraordinary Sovjetique musicale excellence. In the second part he took good care of the melancholy


Ludwig van Beethoven 9. Symphony:

Among critics, Beethovens 9th Symphony, is almost universally considered Beethoven’s greatest work, and many consider it one of the greatest compositions in the western musical canon.
However for me, personally, I feel that many of Beethovens Symphonies gives me more interesting parts, as i feel that, a lot of this 75 min. long symphony is “only”, but also “elegantly” building up the choir and singing soloists in the last movement, with always modulating on themes that we, when we know the symphony is directing in to the final part.

The symphony was the first example of a major composer using voices in a symphony, thus making it a choral symphony. The words are sung during the final movement by four vocal soloists and a chorus. They were taken from the “Ode to Joy”, a poem written by Friedrich Schiller in 1785 and revised in 1803.

Beethovens 9th. Symphony is a large work, and in this cooperation for the first time (as far as i know) between Orchestre de Paris and Paavo Järvi, it is allways exiting how it will function, and happily they were going to repeat it at the concert 18th of June.   The first part was powerful, sometimes a bit too powerful for me, but in the second part with the dialogue between horn and wood and the direct dialogue between solo flute and solo horn is very interesting and was beautifully and with great musicality played by the two excellent soloists.

The final is the hit with its fanfare sounds in the deep strings and beautifully with one of the coming leading themes in the bases continuing up in the lighter strings andthrough all the groups is a masterpiece by Beethoven, taken well care of by the Orchestra.

With good soloists like Matthias Goerne (bassbaryton), who was beautifully and very well sounding opening it all in the singing part, and  Michael Schade (tenor), together with Luba Orconásová (sopran) and Petra Lang (mezzo), and a very well  singing Choire de Orchestre de Paris, with app 110 persons, led by Lionel Sow, the last vocal part of this famous Beethoven Symphony was in the very best hands. The sound of the choire was some times extraordinary well formed.
