BERLIN PHILHARMONIC – JANUARY 2020

STRAVINSKY: Scherzo fantastique
HANS ABRAHAMSEN: Horn Concerto (World Première)
BERLIOZ: Symphonie fantastique

… Paavo Järvi treibt am Pult des Orchesters Berlioz’ Symphonie fantastique in eine köstlich radikale Überzeichnung … Paavo Järvi unterstützte diese Überzeichnung noch in dieser Musik, die zwischen Traum und Drogen changiert. Dabei besteht die Herausforderung bei Berlioz oft darin, die langweiligen Teile nicht durchhängen zu lassen. Wie oft musste man im langsamen Satz mit seiner ländlichen Idylle schon gähnen. Hier nicht! Das war ganz exquisit zwischen Regentropfen und Donnergrollen, und das Fernduett mit Albrecht Mayer (Oboe, hinter der Bühne) und Dominik Wollenweber (Englischhorn, auf der Bühne), war ein einziger Genuss.
rbbKultur, Andreas Göbel, 30 January 2020

… Stefan Dohr (Solist in der Hornkonzert von Hans Abrahamsen) spielt mit einer Kraft und Sicherheit, die zugleich großes poetisches Empfinden zulassen. Paavo Järvi am Dirigentenpult ist ihm darin ganz ähnlich, mit Strawinskys klangkulinarischem „Scherzo fantastique“ und Hector Berlioz’ „Symponie fantastique“ rahmen zwei Stücke das Programm, bei denen Järvi weniger das Fantastische einer außermusikalischen Handlung interessiert als die Komplexität der Machart. Der Eindruck ist dadurch nicht weniger groß.”
