THE FASCINATION THAT NOTHING LOOKS DIFFICULT
Goethe expressed his admiration for the way in which Beethoven had musicalized his play Egmont (1809-1810) as he had perfectly described it: the heroism of the Count of Egmont who fought against the oppression of the people until his death. Even if we only listen to the overture, we will be able to hear the suffering of those who feel without freedom and the challenge and the hope of reaching it.
The last four songs (1948) composed by an octogenarian Richard Strauss also represent a challenge for the sopranos who have to combine their lyrical demands with the interpretation of the content of the three poems of Hesse (Spring, September, Going To Sleep) and the one of Eichendorff (In the Twilight). The portentous voice of Ainhoa Arteta, who has been singing for more than a decade, and her interpretative acumen make it seem that there is no such difficulty and she manages to delight us from beginning to end.
Schumann's second symphony (1846) takes on features of composers that he admired (Beethoven, Mendelssohn, Bach) but with his own personality, in which his emotional instability gives his works a sensitivity, energy and univocal meaning. The four movements arise from the desire to overcome difficulties.
