What is the stroke for a Bow: intense and consuming, poetic and expressive. Joshua Bell is giving away no clock by Camille Saint-Saëns’ 3. Violin Concerto reveals no touch to the package that goes with each sound. And the audience attracts from the first moment, as his violin lying on the rumbling tones of the strings uses in the spell.
Bell is the star soloist at the concert of the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester in the Philharmonie. Yes, a Star he is, but one that is founded in the famous festival in May. And the acts translated, rather, honest, and approachable, modest, and with 51 still amazingly young. Beguiling Cantabile wins his violin in the lyrical passages of the second movement, and also in the stormy Finale, which is marked by the Spanish Falango abgeguckten theme, it loses the sound of nothing of substance.
On the programme of pieces in which folkloric dances have found their way into the art of music this evening. For example, in Ravel's "Tzigane": hilarious technical difficulties for the violin, compressed to 15 minutes, double stops, Pizzicatos, harmonics, everything in the Turbo-exchange. Ravel has made a meticulous Simulation of what it was called 100 years ago "Gypsy" music. After a few seconds, a small mishap: Bells shoulder rest is not sitting, he must readjust to interrupt, conductor Christian Macelaru, only the bow – and then the Stradivarius. If he wants to have? Wonderful Anglo-Saxon Humor, which defuses an awkward Situation immediately.
No fire of passion
"Tzigane," Bell with flying colors, especially in the first third, where the soloist plays completely alone, as if it were a Partita by Bach. The play of color, which he conjures up with mini-Printer relocations paint, remains long in the memory.More about

unlike, then, the second half of the concert. Macelaru, who is in the autumn of 2019-in-chief of the WDR Symphony orchestra, for the third Time on the podium of the DSO. Decidedly, clearly from his Gestures, he has his eyes everywhere, is a caring and yet something is missing. It is the fire of passion can ignite Macelaru. Bartók's "dance Suite" device tends to be brittle, and Strauss' "Rosenkavalier-Suite" of 1945, which revels in intoxicating, gently modern, a broken waltz, nostalgia, and actually stand out, in higher sound spheres resolutions would have to weave, despite the lush, string current, and a sensitive dynamic gradations in the orchestra erdverhaftet. A sober end to the day.
