Info for Brahms: Symphonies Nos. 1-4, Serenades Nos. 1 & 2
Eine Neuaufnahme sämtlicher Sinfonien und Serenaden von Johannes Brahms mit der Tapiola Sinfonietta unter der Leitung von Mario Venzago. Dem Dirigenten ging es bei dieser Einspielung vor allem darum auszuprobieren, wie diese Musik klingen würde, wenn sie mit einem kleinen Orchester aufgeführt würde – in der Größe etwa, wie es Brahms am berühmten Hoftheater in Meiningen zur Verfügung stand. Eine undogmatisch gehandhabte historische Aufführungspraxis mit sparsamem Streichervibrato und Schwerpunkt auf dem Holzbläsersatz sollte als ästhetische Grundlage genügen. Herausgekommen ist eine faszinierend neue Sichtweise dieser bekannten Werke, die sich bewusst abhebt von den groß besetzten, »schweren« Interpretationen der 70er und 80er Jahre des letzten Jahrhunderts.
Mario Venzago, Dirigent
The Tapiola Sinfonietta
the Espoo City Orchestra founded in 1987, represents uncompromising quality and emphasises the critical role of each musician. The orchestra, composed of 41 musicians, specialises in the Viennese-Classical repertoire. 20th century modern classics and new music premieres also play an important role in the orchestra’s programme. The orchestra regularly performs with both Finnish and foreign top soloists and conductors, and also enjoys forays into e.g. children’s music and crossover productions. Its repertoire also includes chamber music concerts.
is the principal conductor and artistic director of the Bern Symphony Orchestra and Artist in Association at Finland's Tapiola Sinfonietta.
In the capacity either of principal conductor or general music director, Mario Venzago has directed the Musikkollegium Winterthur, the Theatre and Philharmonic Orchestra of the City of Heidelberg, The Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Frankfurt (now Bremen), the Graz Opera and Graz Philharmonic Orchestra, the Basel Symphony Orchestra, the Basque National Orchestra in San Sebastian, the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra and the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra. From 2000 to 2003, he was Artistic Director of the Baltimore Summer Fest as successor to Pinchas Zukermann and David Zinman. From 2010 to 2014 he was principal conductor of the Royal Northern Sinfonia.
Before taking up conducting, Venzago was a concert pianist at Radiotelevisione Svizerra in Switzerland, and performed throughout Europe as a soloist and accompanist.
Mario Venzago has conducted the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, the orchestras in Philadelphia and Boston, the London Philharmonic Orchestra, the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France, the Filarmonica della Scala and the NHK Symphony Orchestra. He is a regular guest conductor with internationally renowned symphony orchestras such as the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra, the Danish National Symphony Orchestra, the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra and the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra, and prestigious chamber orchestras including the Tapiola Sinfonietta and the Orchestre de Chambre de Lausanne.
Mario Venzago has given concerts with the world's most famous soloists, and worked together with directors such as Ruth Berghaus, Peter Konwitschny and Hans Neuenfels.
Several of his CDs have won international prizes such as the Grand Prix du Disque, the Diapason d'or and the Edison Award. His recordings of the operas â€œVenusâ€ and â€œPenthesileaâ€ and of all choral works by Othmar Schoeck with the MDR choir and symphony orchestra received great international recognition and prestigious awards, as did his first film, â€œMy Brother the Conductorâ€ by Alberto Venzago, which was shown in cinemas across Europe and brought out on DVD. In the spring of 2015, the collaboration between Mario Venzago and the label CPO on the project â€œThe Other Bruckner, with all ten Bruckner symphonies, was completed.
