London Symphony Orchestra and conductor Gianandrea Noseda, Seong-Jin Cho /piano/

Friday, August 30th at 7 p.m., Dzintari Concert Hall 
London Symphony Orchestra and conductor Gianandrea Noseda
Seong-Jin Cho, piano
 
At the heart of the final weekend of the RĪGA JŪRMALA Music Festival is an orchestra which could easily be called the bravest and wittiest of the world’s orchestras. The concept of “boundaries” doesn’t seem to apply to the London Symphony Orchestra. Since its founding in 1904, the ensemble has always been avant garde, introducing or encapsulating the trends of the time. The Orchestra was the first to make records, film music, found its own record label, play at the Opening Ceremony for the Olympic Games and has taken contemporary music to new heights.
 
The LSO’s Principal Guest Conductor Gianandrea Noseda and Korean pianist Seong-Jin Cho first collaborated in a recording of Frédéric Chopin’s music. Today the musicians will perform Sergei Prokofiev’s Piano Concerto
No. 2 at the RĪGA JŪRMALA Music Festival.
 
Concert programme:
Nikolai RIMSKY-KORSAKOV Suite The Invisible City of Kitezh
Sergei PROKOFIEV Piano Concerto No 2 in G minor op. 16
Dmitri SHOSTAKOVICH Symphony No. 6 in B minor op. 54

From its first days the London Symphony Orchestra has been defiantly different and proudly pioneering – so says the London Symphony Orchestra (LSO) on its website.

The orchestra, founded in 1904, was the first British orchestra owned by its players, and its fiercely independent ethos has never waned. The LSO was one of the very first orchestras to record albums and film scores; nowadays, its discography contains more recordings than any other orchestra in the world.

The LSO was first in another significant field. In 1999, they founded their own record label, LSO Live. At the time, it represented an almost revolutionary approach to recording concerts and distributing recordings. It was one of the very first record labels to once again belong to the musicians. The LSO was the first to make use of digital filming, Blu-Ray Audio, and download and streaming opportunities. Their playing can also be heard on hundreds of film soundtracks, from Star Wars to The King’s Speech, The Shape of Water to Indiana Jones.
 
In 1912, the LSO became the first British orchestra to tour to America. A last-minute change in schedule saved them from travelling on the Titanic – the orchestra sailed a few days earlier on the Baltic.
The orchestra had its largest audience – 900 million – in 2012 when they performed with Sir Simon Rattle at the London Olympic Opening Ceremony alongside Mr. Bean (Rowan Atkinson).
 
With concerts taking place in the historic cities of Riga and Jurmala, the Riga Jurmala Music Festival features four weekends throughout the summer. A leading international orchestra and conductor anchor each weekend, offering a range of symphonic concerts and recitals that feature leading stars and young up-and-coming talent.
 
Conductor Gianandrea Noseda (1964) was born in Milan and studied conducting with Donato Renzetti, Myung-whun Chung and Valery Gergiev. He also studied piano and composition. He has been awarded the title of Cavaliere Ufficiale al Merito della Repubblica Italiana for his services to Italian art. In 2015, he was named Conductor of the Year by Musical America magazine, and in 2016 he won Best Conductor at the International Opera Awards.
 
He is currently Director of the National Symphony Orchestra in Washington, as well as Principal Guest Conductor of the London Symphony Orchestra and the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra. He is Principal Conductor of the Orquestra de Cadaqués, Catalonia, and the Stresa Festival in Italy. In July 2018, the Zurich Opera House announced that he would be the next General Music Director as of the 2021/2022 season, and it is already known that the main event of this season will be a new production of Wagner’s Ring Cycle.
 
Meanwhile, when Noseda was confirmed as Principal Guest Conductor of the London Symphony Orchestra, Head Conductor Simon Rattle said: “I am delighted that Gianandrea will become an even closer member of the LSO family. I have long admired his music-making, with its unusual marriage of lyricism and drama”.
 
Other orchestral musicians value Noseda’s exacting work and ability to perform characterful, inspiring music.
 
Korean pianist Seong-Jin Cho (1994) won the Warsaw International Chopin Piano Competition in 2015, and since that time his career has developed on an international scale.
 
A year later, he signed a contract with one of the world’s biggest record companies, Deutsche Grammophon, but he also released his first album. In it, he performs Chopin’s music both solo and in collaboration with the London Symphony Orchestra and conductor Gianandrea Noseda. Noseda describes Cho thus: “His way of playing is very natural, and yet there is some sophistication in finding new ideas without being eccentric. Just to find a way of expression while being natural; that is something I really respect in this very young artist.”
 
Cho’s manner of playing is simultaneously deliberate and poetic, certain and soft, virtuoso and nuanced, rich and clear. And this entire spectrum of feeling and expression is woven through with a natural feeling of balance.
