Event Info

Last year at the Verbier Festival, the conductor Iván Fischer offered a new and improved version of the song “Happy Birthday to You.” He commented on the shallowness in the original song, the difficult leaps that cause many to sing out of tune, and the emphasis on the word "to" rather than on the phrase "to you." Fischer’s “Happy Birthday” is in a more romantic and personal style. (For those who are curious, a video is available online.)

So, who could be better suited to take the podium for one of the most impressive dance showcases this season? One might suggest that the symphony hall’s management quietly remove all the seats in the auditorium so the audience has room to dance—in the 3/4 rhythm of Josef Strauss's Waltz, the double rhythm of Johann Strauss’s Polka, the complex 5/4 rhythms in the Romanian Folk Dances of Bartók, the Hungarian Dances of Galánta by Kodály, and Dvořák's Slavonic Dances. Not to mention Maestro Fischer’s own orchestrations of two of Brahms' Hungarian Dances.

"When will we rest?" asks the reader, exhausted from all the dancing. Well, Iván Fischer gives the audience a break with three interludes: Dvořák's "Legend," which opens the concert; "Valse Triste" by Sibelius, which is more a reflection on dance than a dance itself; and of course Schumann’s Piano Concerto, in which the only dancing will be that of Daniil Trifonov’s fingers on the keyboard.
