Ensemble: Introdans
Memory of a Shape:
Dutch choreographer Regina van Berkel […] has already made choreographies in the Netherlands for companies such as Nederlands Dans Theater and for the Koninkrijksconcert (Kingdom Concert), but in recent years she has chiefly established a reputation abroad. In Germany for instance, where Martin Schläpfer – described by Hans van Manen as one of the biggest talents in the German dance world – invited her to make various works for ballettmainz and, later, Ballett am Rhein in Düsseldorf. One of these pieces is Memory of a Shape, set to music by the Dutch composer Theo Verbey (his Fractal Symphony), which is now receiving its Dutch premiere in this programme. This is a dance-rich, highly rhythmic, en pointe ballet in which the monumental stage decor and superb video images by Dietmar Janeck also play an important role.

Conductor James Gaffigan is making his first appearance with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, leading it in works by Prokofiev, Lutoslawski and the Dutchman Theo Verbey. Gregor Horsch, first principal cellist of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, is performing the Polish composer Witold Lutoslawski’s Cello Concerto. It was originally written for the star Russian cellist Mstislav Rostropovich, who premiered the work in 1970. Heinrich Schiff and the Concertgebouw Orchestra performed Lutoslawski’s Cello Concerto for the first time on a concert dedicated to, and conducted by, the composer himself in 1976.

Sergey Prokofiev composed his highly evocative and colourfully orchestrated ballet music for Shakespeare’s famous love story Romeo and Juliet in 1935. Out of frustration at the difficulty he faced trying to get the work premiered, Prokofiev arranged the original ballet score in two orchestral suites (and later a third) and a set of piano transcriptions. The composer conducted and played the suites as often as he could, and his efforts eventually paid off. His ballet Romeo and Juliet was finally premiered in 1938. That same year, Vladimir Nabokov published Invitation to a Beheading, a novel which would inspire Theo Verbey’s beautifully orchestrated work seventy years later.
