His name is a byword for Russia’s orchestral culture – and for bridges to the West. For more than 20 years Valery Gergiev has headed the Mariinsky Theatre in St Petersburg while serving as principal conductor in London and Munich. To open the 2017 Festival he has chosen Wagner’s ‘Lohengrin Prelude’ to symbolise the idea of distance. ‘Blue, of benumbing, hypnotic effect’ is how Friedrich Nietzsche described this music. With Rimsky-Korsakov’s ‘Sheherazade’ we turn to the magic light of ‘Tales from the Arabian Nights’. Beethoven’s Fourth takes us back to Viennese society, where this vivacious symphony was immensely popular.
