Dai Fujikura is appointed “Composer in Residence” of the Nagoya Philharmonic Orchestra starting in April 2014.
The term of the residency will be three seasons, until the end of March 2017. He will be the first artist to be Composer in Residence in the 48-year-history of the Nagoya Philharmonic Orchestra.
During his residence, Dai Fujikura is commissioned to compose a new song cycle, works for orchestra and a concerto. The Nagoya Philharmonic Orchestra will also perform existing works of Mr. Fujikura.
The relationship between Dai Fujikura and the Nagoya Philharmonic Orchestra began in 2009, when the orchestra played the Japanese Premiere of the piano concerto AMPERE. Since then the NPO and its principal conductor Martyn Brabbins have performed multiple works of Dai Fujikura.
Russian-born composer Sergej Newski will receive the Berlin Art Prize for Music in 2014. It is awarded to honour artistic achievement and to promote creative work. The award ceremony takes place on March 18.
The Akademie der Künste has been awarding the “Berlin Art Prize – Jubilee Foundation 1848/1948” on behalf of the Federal State of Berlin since 1971. The prize was donated by the Berlin Senate to commemorate the March Revolution of 1848. Past award winners include György Kurtág, Enno Poppe, Wolfgang Rihm, and Mathias Spahlinger.
The release of Mayr’s ”Messa a quattro con stromenti parte concertanti” (1826) represents the first volume of sacred music within the complete works project.
Together with the ”Gran Messa da Requiem” the mass stands out within Mayr’s extensive catalog of liturgical music; by their expansive scope alone, both must be considered as principal works among Mayr’s sacred music contributions.
In contrast to the Requiem, the genesis of the Messa a quattro is clearly documented. Created on commission for the monastery at Einsiedeln (Switzerland), the autograph score resides to this day in the monastery’s library.
The somewhat clumsy subtitle of the work, ”con stromenti parte concertanti,” refers to the occasional instrumental solos within the score, a specific requirement of the commission Mayr had received.
Mayr’s setting combines exuberant melodicism of an italianate operatic nature with virtuosic polyphony. There are also clear references not only to Mayr’s revered contemporaries Haydn and Beethoven, but also to Mayr’s own master pupil Donizetti: in 1824 Mayr had asked Donizetti for a contribution to his festival of Santa Cecilia in Bergamo. Donizetti obliged by sending a Credo, within which he refers thematically to Mayr’s Credo così detto di Novara (1815). Mayr in turn now used this Credo by Donizetti in his Messa a quattro.
