Riga Jurmala Music Festival

Yuja Wang, Martin James Bartlett and Mischa Maisky travel to Latvia this summer to perform at the inaugural Riga Jurmala Festival, which opens on 19 July 2019. The festival was founded by Verbier Festival's Chief Executive,  Martin T:son Engstroem, and takes place over four weekends at the Latvian National Opera, the Great Guild, and the Great and Small Halls of the Dzintari Concert Hall. At the centre of each weekend are two symphony orchestra concerts from orchestras including the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra and London Symphony Orchestra as well as solo concerts and morning concerts featuring rising musical stars.

Bartlett is the first Intermusica artist to perform at the festival as he gives a solo recital at the Great Guild on 21 July.

2018 was another fantastic year for Intermusica artists, with many singled out by the world’s top publications and broadcasters in their end-of-year highlight features. Read a selection below:


Daniil Trifonov featured in a plethora of publications including The Guardian, Sunday Times, New York Times, The New Yorker, NPR, Arts Fuse, Seen & Heard and New York Classical Review. His recent release on Deutsche Grammophon, Destination Rachmaninov: Departure, with Philadelphia Orchestra and Yannick Nézet-Séguin, was widely praised, as was his ‘Decades’ recital at Carnegie’s Zankel Hall, which Alex Ross of The New Yorker called “playing of unreal beauty”. A recital with mentor Sergei Babayan was highlighted in Boston Classical Review, with Trifonov deemed “among the most sensational keyboard artists of his generation” and Babayan “second-to-none in his own right.”


Also popular amongst critics was Sir John Eliot Gardiner, whose Carnegie Hall appearance with his Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique, as part of Carnegie’s Berlioz Festival, drew glowing commentary. Gardiner’s Berlioz and Schumann exploration with the LSO, including an appearance at the 2018 BBC Proms, was similarly lauded (Arts Desk: “I reeled from… [Gardiner’s]… contributions … He sold instantly the ideas that wind and brass as well as upper strings… should stand”), and memorably enhanced by Antoine Tamestit’s take on Harold in Italy, which saw the soloist use theatrics to better inhabit the wandering eponymous hero (Tamestit’s Harold also came in for praise from Arts Desk, Limelight and New York Classical Review). Gardiner’s Verdi Requiem at the Concertgebouw and other venues was also mentioned by NRC and Seen & Heard.


British music champion Martyn Brabbins was singled out by several publications including The Guardian and Sunday Times, who included his releases of Tippett Symphonies 1& 2 (BBC Scottish Orchestra, Hyperion) and Ferneyhough: La Terre est un Homme (BBC Symphony Orchestra, NMC) in their recordings of the year round-ups. 


Matthew Aucoin was picked out by WQXR for his opera Second Nature (on the topic of climate change) and “[making] the [classical] tradition more alive and urgent than ever.” Aucoin’s conducting skills impressed The New York Times, who noted his “instinct for tension” when conducting Peter Sellars’ Santa Fe Opera production of Doctor Atomic.


Colin Currie Group’s release of Drumming, the first on the new Colin Currie Records label, enchanted listeners with Arts Fuse calling it “one of – no, the – greatest recording of the piece to date” and The Boston Globe terming it “an ecstatic rendition…[which]…absolutely transports.”


Andrew Manze’s Mendelssohn symphony cycle with NDR Radiophilharmonie, where he is Chief Conductor, garnered praise from Arts Fuse, as did his moving War Requiem with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic and NDR Radiophilharmonie at Liverpool Cathedral and in Hannover (one of Fiona Maddox at The Guardian’s Best of 2018), which saw British and German players unite to mark 100 years since the end of World War I.


Mark Wigglesworth was roundly praised by Seen & Heard (“typically first-rate conducting”), The Stage (“an exceptional musical performance”) and Arts Desk for his House of the Dead at the Royal Opera House; while over at English National Opera, Porgy and Bess, conducted by John Wilson, was a highlight for The Stage, The Guardian and Evening Standard.


Emmanuel Krivine’s Erato recording of works by Debussy with National Orchestre de France was deemed “electrifying” by WQXR; the same work was highlighted in The Daily Mail's top classical releases.


Other notable recordings included Marin Alsop and the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra’s “eminently accessible” rendition of Prokofiev’s Romeo & Juliet (WQXR); Nora Fischer’s Hush – “radically unorthodox yet utterly gorgeous” (WQXR), Boris Giltburg’s Rachmaninov Piano Concerto No 2 with Royal Scottish National (Politiken); and Marek Janowksi’s “sumptuous Hindemith collection” on Pentatone (Arts Desk). Recordings by Francesco Piemontesi and Renaud Capuçon (Liszt Années de pèlerinage, Orfeo, and Bartok Violin Concertos Nos 1 & 2 with LSO, Hyperion) featured in The Sunday Times’ Classical Albums of the Year.


Lahav Shani’s new position as Chief Conductor of the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra was noted as a special moment by Seen & Heard and NRC, while Giancarlo Guerrero’s performances with Boston Symphony Orchestra (“a spectacular, kinetic reading”) and Curtis Symphony Orchestra (“at once authoritative and at the same time warmly collaborative") were noted by Arts Fuse and Seen & Heard. Mischa Maisky’s Jansen/Maisky/Argerich Trio performance at the Barbican was deemed “chamber music writ large” and “opulent” by Arts Desk.


Singers singled out by cultural commentators included Lise Davidsen for her “superlative” performance in the title role in a “long overdue feminist reassessment” of Ariadne auf Naxos at Festival d’Aix en Provence (Seen & Heard), as well as for her involvement in the Royal Opera House and Antonio Pappano’s Verdi Requiem – “the classiest perfection imaginable, crowned by the phenomenal Lise Davidsen” (Arts Desk).


Fellow dramatic soprano Iréne Theorin was noted in Seen & Heard as a “commanding Isolde” in Staatsoper Berlin and Daniel Barenboim’s Tristan und Isolde, as was Natalya Romaniw, who sang "with grace and conviction” in the world premiere of Mark-Anthony Turnage’s Testament alongside the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra and Kirill Karabits.


David Alden’s “fine Lohengrin” at the Royal Opera House was singled out by The Stage, as was Garsington’s first full-scale commission, The Skating Rink, featuring Susan Bickley creating the role of Carmen.


2018 ended well for Sir James MacMillan, whose Cumnock Tryst took the number one spot in Fiona Maddox’s Best Classical Music of 2018 list for its unique role in “revitalising a local community with world-class performances”. The Scotsman, looking ahead to 2019, noted “it’s going to be a big year for Scotland’s most high-profile composer” as MacMillan turns 60, celebrating with a host of concerts and new works.

"Fleet brilliance and tender lyricism": rave reviews for Mischa Maisky, Martha Argerich & Janine Jansen at the Barbican Centre

09 February 2018

Mischa Maisky returned to the UK on 6 February 2018 for an outstanding evening of music-making at the Barbican Centre alongside Martha Argerich and Janine Jansen. The concert was part of a two-week tour that also includes performances at the Hamburg Elbphilharmonie, Paris Philharmonie, Amsterdam Concertgebouw and Vienna Konzerthaus, with a programme of Shostakovich and Tchaikovsky piano trios and a Beethoven cello sonata.


The trio's performances have been greeted with universal critical acclaim:


“Dazzling precision, fleet brilliance and tender lyricism…irresistible… understated eloquence”
Guardian, five stars


“sprightly and passionate…superlative”
Times, five stars


“a lesson in early Romantic playing… electrifying, high on adrenalin and abandonment – three players at the very top of their game”
Classical Source


“sheer joy of music-making…a masterclass in profound artistry…a turbulent, risk-taking, edge-of-seat interpretation from all three… the three players didn’t merely interpret the music they were playing but lived it”
Bachtrack, five stars


“rounded, noble, humane – and really quite modern, despite the players’ touches of Romanticism…extraordinary density and eloquence…what thrilling, spirited and passionate playing from this trio”
Die Welt


"On this stage we heard three musicians making real chamber music in the purest possible way. Someone in the audience put it like this: 'They have nothing left to prove.' And so it was, the natural intensity that ensued overwhelmed the hall."
De Trouw, five stars

Mischa Maisky performs at the Royal Festival Hall with Vadim Repin and Lang Lang

09 May 2011

Mischa Maisky visits the Royal Festival Hall for the second time this spring, when on May 19 he teams up with Vadim Repin and Lang Lang for trios by Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninov. The concert is part of the International Chamber Music Season, which Intermusica co-promotes. This stellar combination has already produced an extraordinary recording of the same repertoire for Deutsche Grammophon:


"Here is passionate communal music-making, most exhilarating in Tchaikovsky¿s final section, when the older musicians become gloriously infused with Lang Lang's youth and sparkle. At other points, the kaleidoscope of personalities keeps turning. In the Rachmaninov Maisky's soulful, yearning cello carries most of the music's emotional weight, with Repin in sweet support. Lang Lang himself stays bright, agile, but modest..."
The Times, October 2009 


"A celebrity trio that is much more than the sum of its parts... what impresses most of all about these performances is their single-mindedness. Nowhere is there even a suggestion of conflicting temperaments with their own agenda. What shines through here is the give and take, the kinship, of outstanding chamber music playing..."
Gramophone, November 2009
