Apologies for the poor video quality; video was copied from Conductor's own camera who hadn't realised the effect of stage downlighting in advance. The audio track on this video is mid-quality mp3 - but a full professional quality CD of the event is available on-line from Nimbus Records at http://www.wyastone.co.uk/music-of-19... as CC9026CD. Hope you enjoy!
Salomon Jadassohn? (1831-1902)
German/Silesian born (Breslau) Jewish Romantic era composer.
His significance?
He was a student of Hauptmann, Ernst Richter and Julius Rietz, as well as Ignaz Moscheles. He also studied privately with Franz Liszt in Weimar.
In his own turn he was a teacher of Edvard Grieg, Ferruccio Busoni, Frederick Delius, Richard Franck, Sigfrid Karg-Elert, Ruben Liljefors, Emil Reznicek and Felix Weingartner amongst others.
Thus he's an important musical development link between the generations.
What happened to his works?
He possibly lived in the shadow of contemporary Carl Reinecke and history has somehow overlooked/forgotten his contributions. There's also much debate about who was the worst despot of the 20th Century. Hitler, Stalin, Mao tse Tung, Pol Pot? Certainly Jadassohn, and his works, suffered a double whammy of suppression by two of them for reasons of ancestry and birth.
His works (140 in virtually every genre) are now being rediscovered, re-evaluated, and enjoying somewhat of a renaissance.
Concerto for Piano & Orchestra No. 1 Op. 89 in C Minor? (1887)
OK it's not mainstream piano repertoire, but interesting nonetheless; and, judging by the audience reaction in Petrozavodsk, a crowd pleaser.
