Description

Röntgen: Bitonal Symphony - Radio Filharmonisch Orkest o.l.v. Dmitri Slobodeniouk - Live concert HD

Röntgens 'Bitonale Symfonie' (Symfonie nr. 9) door het Radio Filharmonisch Orkest o.l.v. Dmitri Slobodeniouk.

De Bitonale Symfonie van de Duits-Nederlandse componist Julius Röntgen wordt zelden uitgevoerd. Röntgen verloochende zijn afkomst niet. Leipzig was zijn geboorteplaats, de concertmeester van het Gewandhausorchester zijn vader, en een handjevol Mendelssohn-, Schumann- en Brahms-apostelen zijn leraren: Carl Reinecke en Franz Lachner. De stroom van composities zou vanaf zijn negende tot aan zijn dood oplopen tot zo’n zevenhonderd. En dat naast een toch al overladen beroepsleven. Röntgen was medeoprichter, pianoleraar en directeur (1912-1924) van het Amsterdamse Conservatorium. Hij was dirigent van het Toonkunstkoor Amsterdam (1886-1898), als opvolger van Johannes Verhulst. Met de in dit concert gespeelde symfonie experimenteerde Röntgen voorzichtig met het componeren met twee toonsoorten tegelijk, zoals Milhaud en Honegger dat destijds ook deden.

Opgenomen/recorded: AVROTROS Vrijdagconcert, 22 april 2016 in TivoliVredenburg te Utrecht.

Julius Engelbert Röntgen (9 May 1855 – 13 September 1932) was a German-Dutch composer of classical music.

Julius Röntgen was born in Leipzig, Germany, to a family of musicians. His father, the Dutch born Engelbert Röntgen, was first violinist in the Gewandhaus orchestra in Leipzig; his mother, Pauline Klengel, was a pianist, an aunt of the renowned cellist Julius Klengel, born in 1859.

Julius was a gifted child. Neither he nor his sisters attended school; he was taught music by his parents and grandparents, and other subjects by private tutors. His first piano teacher was Carl Reinecke, the director of the Gewandhaus orchestra, while his early compositions were influenced by Reinecke, but also by Robert Schumann, Franz Liszt and Johannes Brahms.

Röntgen also played an important part in establishing institutions for classical music in Amsterdam. In 1883, in association with composers Frans Coenen and Daniel de Lange, Röntgen founded the Amsterdam Conservatory. In 1884 Röntgen was heavily involved in the foundation of the Concertgebouw. He applied for the position of the director; however, to his great disappointment, the choice fell instead on the German Hans von Bülow, as the committee seemed to doubt Röntgen's abilities as a conductor. Nevertheless Bülow was not able to accept the appointment, and the position went in the end to the violinist Willem Kes.
