                La grande attesa legata al concerto della London Symphony orchestra non è andata tradita. La platea del Ravello Festival, gremita in ogni ordine di posti, ha tributato alla storica formazione britannica applausi scroscianti e standing ovation finale. L’unica data italiana per questo 2014 della LSO con in pedana Daniel Harding ha confermato la straordinaria qualità dell’orchestra e il livello assoluto raggiunto dal giovane direttore britannico. Il trentanovenne direttore, al debutto a Ravello, ha aperto il programma con la misteriosa Incompiuta schubertiana, per poi dare spazio all’imponente Prima di Mahler, pagina carica di intuizioni e rimandi, prodigio di tecnica orchestrale, amatissima da Harding e dalla LSO che - come avevano già fatto alla Barbican Hall nel febbraio scorso – ne hanno dedicato l’esecuzione alla memoria di Claudio Abbado. Bis ricercato quello proposto da Harding. Il maestro ha scelto Elgar, compositore inglese vissuto tra Otto e Novecento e il suo "Nimrod" pagina tratta da un brano più ampio intitolato "Enigma Variations". (Nimrod ne è la variazione numero 9). Formatosi al fianco di Simon Rattle e di Claudio Abbado, che lo volle appena ventenne come assistente alla guida dei Berliner Philharmoniker, Harding è dal 2006 direttore ospite principale della LSO, con cui ha instaurato un feeling esclusivo e felice negli esiti. Harding dopo il concerto ha dichiarato: "Ravello per un musicista è un posto speciale per il fatto che è legato a Wagner. E quando ho visto il palco sono rimasto incantato. È una delle cose più belle che abbia mai visto. Sono molto contento di essere venuto qui e ci ritornerò".

                    The Allegro capriccioso movement that would become the finale was begun first, in Nice on Christmas Day 1928, and provided the musical material from which the other movements grew. It was followed by the second movement, completed at Echarvines on 13 September 1929, and then by the opening Presto. The orchestration of the first movement was completed on 26 October and that of the last movement on 9 November, 1929 (White 1979, 355–56). The premiere took place in the Salle Pleyel, Paris, on 6 December 1929, with the Orchestre Symphonique de Paris conducted by Ernest Ansermet (who had founded the orchestra that winter season) and featuring the composer at the piano (White 1979, 94, 359). The next year, Stravinsky made a commercial recording of the work as soloist, with the Straram Orchestra, conducted by Ernest Ansermet (Hamilton 1971, 172). Beginning in the mind-1930s, Stravinsky's son Soulima often performed as soloist, most often with his father conducting (Johnston 1971, 15) In 1949 Stravinsky corrected a number of misprints and omissions in the score, and this version was published in 1952. Unfortunately, a few new mistakes were added in this new edition, the most important of which was a change of the tempo marking at rehearsal number 14 from the original dotted-quaver = 88 to 80, which contradicts the specification that the semiquavers remain the same (White 1979, 359). Amongst other influences on the Capriccio, Stravinsky very much had in mind Carl Maria von Weber, whom he described as "a prince of music" (Fortner 1971, 30). The three movements are played attacca (without interruption) and take just under twenty minutes to perform. Presto Andante rapsodico Allegro capriccioso ma tempo giusto. (Wikipedia)

                      The gods had condemned Sisyphus to ceaselessly rolling a rock to the top of a mountain, whence the stone would fall back of its own weight. They had thought with some reason that there is no more dreadful punishment than futile and hopeless labor. (Albert Camus)
