    • La chevauchée de Brünnhilde


      from Victor Hamelin Added 56 1 0

      La Chevauchée des Walkyries est le nom commun que l'on donne au prélude de l'acte III de l'opéra Die Walküre, de Richard Wagner. C'est le leitmotiv de "La Walkyrie". Brünnhilde est le personnage central de La Walkyrie, et par trahison envers Wotan, se verra faîte prisonnière au sommet d'une montagne enflammée, que seul "celui qui ne connaît pas la peur pourra les franchir et aller réveiller la vierge, recevant ainsi sa main". Cette vidéo rend hommage à l'opéra wagnérien, et tente de retrouver l'essence de la vidéo, en passant par l'esthétique du tableau, et en figeant le mouvement pour mieux le redécouvrir. Réalisation: Victor Hamelin Images : GH3 + 20mm f/1.7

              http://www.goethe.de/ins/lv/rig/kul/mag/mus/wag/deindex.htm Mikus Čeže, musicologist It’s hard for me to view Wagner ironically now because I was ironic about him when I was young as a youngster till the age of 22 or 25. But that’s probably owing to the fact that I didn’t know Wagner well. At that age I was incapable of fathoming the ideas, the depth of his opera. And even just physically of listening to the whole thing several times and comparing renditions. But irony was quite alien to Wagner, too, by the way, especially with regard to himself. He couldn’t stand being made fun of, that’s why he disliked the French press, which regularly laid into him and really sank its teeth in. But now Wagner means a great deal to me personally, as an outstanding artist, as a genius. I think he is one of the few composers of the 19th century who merits that description. I have the sense, if we stick to Tannhäuser and its terminology, of having spent my youth in a very closed-off society behind the Iron Curtain, in what was actually a very highly ideologized society – one that could be compared to Wartburg, that ran only according to its own rules, didn’t try out many new things, was self-contained and maybe even a bit aggressive. And it was a closed system, from which we basically broke free. In those days I was living in the Soviet Union, that ideological Wartburg. Now I’m basically in a consumer’s paradise, on Venusberg, where everything’s accessible. But all the same there are certain chains, there are different chains. In those days they were ideological, now they’re more material chains. And Wagner’s the one who enables me to view these different systems from a distance, to drop out of the Wartburg society or out of this world of pleasure, this world of consumption. So I could say Wagner is the realm of freedom for me. He helps me feel free. If guests were to come to Riga in the spring, I would definitely take them to Bolderaja. That’s the place Wagner came through to get to Riga. That is where he understood for the first time, realized what Russia might be too, and met Russian customs officers, border guards. But the most important thing is that he returned there later for the ice drift. He’d been promised a grandiose, awesome, almost theatrical event. And Wagner was terribly disappointed, because the environment and nature in Bolderaja were already pretty shabby even then. And, according to his biographer Glasenapp, that’s why he got very drunk with his wife and came home in very high spirits. I’m of the opinion that that would be a trip in Wagner’s spirit. To go to Bolderaja and drink a health to Wagner. Not to his health, but to the everlasting health and continuance of his art.

                http://www.goethe.de/ins/lv/rig/kul/mag/mus/wag/deindex.htm Helēna Demakova, art historian, Latvian Minister of Culture 2004–2009 English translation of content When you drive into Bayreuth, you see a big dark dog straight off […]: that’s Wagner’s dog. And it’s like a living emblem of this human side of Wagner. My little white dog can’t stand Wagner. Maybe I listen to too much of it at home. French chansons, Mozart, yes, but not Wagner. Then she crawls under the bed. But seriously, in my day-to-day work I can’t get by without Wagner. That doesn’t mean I didn’t have grand plans regarding Wagner at some point in the past. They were realized when I was minister. Of course, one of my dreams was to produce Wagner’s Ring at our national opera house. That was our goal and we achieved it. But now I’m teaching at the Art Academy, and when I talk about Joseph Beuys, Anselm Kiefer or Christoph Schlingensief, I can’t help bringing up Wagner. What that means is that contemporary German art – and this may be a paradox – is rooted in German Romanticism and also in Wagner’s work. And I give examples in the whole tradition, the postwar tradition: Werner Herzog filmed an opera house, a fiction, in Fitzcarraldo. Christoph Schlingensief, who died, unfortunately, in 2010, had begun building a house in Africa. We admire the “Green Hill”, but I admire our national opera house, which put on a production of Wagner’s Ring this year for the bicentenary. Naturally, I can artificially pick any old venues or some that have a concrete connection to Wagner, but the main one is the national opera house. If you come to the show and look up, there’s a relief of Wagner over on the right-hand side. And I’d like to say to all Wagner fans: Wagner has been kept alive for so long not by museums, not by what’s been written about him, but by live performances. And that’s just it: we are in the tradition of live performance. So come, look up and then listen.

                  http://www.goethe.de/ins/lv/rig/kul/mag/mus/wag/deindex.htm How do you relate personally to Richard Wagner and/or his work? and What’s the connection between Riga and Wagner 2013? We were also interested in the views of ordinary citizens of Riga. So on the coldest day in January (-17 °C!) we asked passersby: Do you know who Richard Wagner was? and What was or is his relation to Riga? It’s true that most people were at work or in school at that hour, which is why most of the respondents turned out to be foreigners who were passing through Riga – from the US, Portugal, The Netherlands, Russia, Norway. But that just made the whole thing more diverse, more colourful! We hope you’ll enjoy their remarks! And thanks to all those who took part and gave us their support!

                    from Johannes Gärtner Added 524 0 0

                    Richard Wagner ist in Dresden und sucht die Stille des Sommers in Graupa. Inkognito reist er mit Kutsche an. Doch die Stille währt nicht lang. Denn neben zahlreichen Besuchern, Musiker- und Künstlerkollegen seiner Zeit treten nach und nach auch Figuren seiner Opern auf. In einer Verquickung von historischer Realität und Welttheater-Entwürfen nähern wir uns Wagners Leben und spüren der Ideengeschichte seiner „Dresdner Opern“ nach bis zur ´48ger Revolution und seiner Flucht aus Dresden. Als Schauspieler konnten u.a. Peter Anders, Hanns-Jörn Weber und Thomas Stecher gewonnen werden. Eine Kammerorches¬terbesetzung unter Leitung von KV Thomas Meining (Staatskapelle Dresden) begleitet Dresdner SängerInnen und Sänger (u.a. Ingeborg Schöpf, Ewa Zeuner, Dietrich Greve, Barry Coleman) und den Wagner-Chor unter Leitung von MD Jürgen Wirrmann. Am Abend gibt es ein niveauvolles Angebot an Speisen, deren Rezepte sich an den Essge¬wohnheiten zu Wagners Zeiten orientieren und Wein aus seinen Schaffensregionen. Vor den Aufführungen finden im Saal des Lohengrinhauses jeweils 19:30 Uhr (außer 28.6.) kurze Vorträge und Diskussionen (30 min) mit dem Titel „Mein Wagner – Prominente erzählen von Ihrer Begegnung mit Wagners Musik“ statt. Es ist Platz für ca. 50 Personen. Als Gäste haben bisher zugesagt: René Pape, Dr. Friedrich Dieckmann und Prof. Dr. Hans John. 28.06. Premiere | 05.07. | 06.07. | 12.07. jeweils 20.30 Uhr Weitere Infos: http://www.wagnerstaetten.de/Veranstaltungen/Aktuell/468/?vid=4950

                      from Junge Oper Berlin Added 130 0 0

                      Musiktheater unter Benutzung Richard Wagners „Der Ring des Nibelungen“ Libretto von Steffen Thiemann, Elektronics und Audioproduktion von Torsten Ottersberg Ein namenloser Patient erwacht aus dem Koma. Er zitiert den Philosophen Friedrich Nietzsche als wären es seine eigene Gedanken. Sein Arzt, ein Hirnforscher, ist begeistert. Für ihn besteht kein Zweifel, der Namenlose ist niemand anders als Friedrich Nietzsche selbst. Er sieht die Chance für eine neue biologische Spezies, den neuen Menschen endlich gekommen! Um die eigene Hirnleistung zu optimieren, werden die Hirne von Patient, Arzt und Schwester miteinander verbunden. Das Denken soll tiefer und radikaler in die Möglichkeiten des Zukünftigen vordringen. Der „alte“ Mensch in seiner Unzulänglichkeit wird überwunden! Zweifel werden weggesungen. Hirnströme fließen. Das Experiment verspricht Erfolg. Zwanzig Duschvorhänge, drei Würmer und Musik aus Richard Wagners „Der Ring des Nibelungen“ bilden den Rahmen der Kammeroper. Walhall wird zur Intensivstation. Deren Geräusche verwandeln Wagners Musik in einen neuen, eigenwilligen Soundtrack – der Sound der künstlichen Intelligenz im Hirn des Übermenschen aus dem Geist der Götterdämmerung. Regie: Birgit Grimm Licht & Video: Felix Grimm Dramaturgie: Steffen Thiemann Musikalische Leitung: Insa Bernds Klavier: Insa Bernds /Karine Gilanyan Mit: Helena Kolb, Richard Nordemalm, Ingo Volkmer
