LISTED TIMES ARE GMT

A Word About Timings

All timings are listed in both Greenwich Mean Time and Eastern Daylight Time. North America and Europe are now on Daylight Time. For those of you who live in other time zones, you will need to make a calculation to derive the time of an event where you live. In North America subtract four (4) hours (from GMT) for the Eastern Time Zone, five (5) hours for the Central Time Zone, and six (6) hours for the Mountain Time Zone. Subtract seven (7) hours for the Pacific Time Zone and eight (8) hours for Alaska, and nine (9) hours for Hawaii. UK, Ireland and Portugal are one (1) hoour ahead of GMT. In most of the rest of Europe add two (2) hours (some Eastern European countries are three (3) hours ahead of GMT). In the Southern Hemisphere, Australia and New Zealand are on Standard Time (Australia is 10 hours ahead of GMT; New Zealand is 12 hours ahead of GMT).

For those in the United States, it is useful to keep in mind that broadcasts in the evening hours often appear in the NEXT day's listings because they occur in the small hours in GMT time, which is our primary reference in the following listings.

For more information on time zone calculations, double click the time display on the lower right of your screen (if you are using a PC) to display the Time Zone tab, then click on the drop-down menu for a full list of time zones and their relationships to Greenwich Mean Time. You may also let the TIME CONVERTER do the calculations for you.

SPECIAL PROGRAM: Der Dirigent Ádám Fischer
Live aus dem RadioCafe in Wien. Gast: Ádám Fischer. Präsentation: Albert Hosp

Derzeit ist er mit dem "Ring des Nibelungen" an der Wiener Staatsoper tätig, jenem Monumentalwerk, dessen Komponist sein Leben immer wieder mitgeprägt hat: Richard Wagners Musik spielt zweifellos eine entscheidende Rolle im Leben des Dirigenten Ádám Fischer, der heute zu Gast bei Albert Hosp im "Ö1 Klassik-Treffpunkt" ist.

2001 dirigierte Ádám Fischer den "Ring" erstmals in Bayreuth und wurde dafür als Dirigent des Jahres ausgezeichnet. 2008 rief er die Richard-Wagner-Tage in Budapest ins Leben, damals noch als Generalmusikdirektor der ungarischen Staatsoper. Diesem Haus kehrte der international gefragte Dirigent, vor dem Hintergrund politischer Interventionen der Regierung, im Jahr 2010 den Rücken. Ádám Fischer hat sich, ebenso wie András Schiff und viele andere ungarische Künstler/innen, niemals ein Blatt vor den Mund genommen; dazu passt der von ihm ins Leben gerufene Menschenrechtspreis der Tonhalle Düsseldorf. Fischer ist Chefdirigent der dortigen Symphoniker, ebenso wie des dänischen Kammerorchesters.

Die Mahler-Zyklen in Düsseldorf und sämtliche Mozart-Symphonien in Kopenhagen deuten auf zwei weitere Komponisten hin, die Fischer wichtig sein dürften. Dazu kommen eine nicht nur aus der ungarischen Herkunft begründete Leidenschaft für Bartok und eine Liebe zu Joseph Haydn, die Fischer u.a. mit der Gründung der Haydn-Tage in Eisenstadt, anno 1987, bewies.

Maestro Adam Fischer bekommt den diesjährigen Hauptpreis in der Kategorie Musik von der in Israel ansässigen Wolf Foundation. Der mit 100.000,- US-Dollar dotierte Preis wird an ihn wegen seiner besonderen Verdienste in der Musik als völkerverbindende Kraft verliehen. Mit seiner Gründung der Österreichisch-Ungarischen Haydn-Philharmonie noch zu Zeiten des Eisernen Vorhangs und seinem Wirken bei den Haydn Festspielen Burgenland hat er einen wichtigen Beitrag dazu geliefert. Er bekommt den Preis gemeinsam mit Paul McCartney am 31. Mai dieses Jahres, am 209. Todestag von Joseph Haydn, während einer Feierstunde in der Knesset in Jerusalem verliehen.

Der 1949 geborene Bruder des Dirigenten Ivan Fischer studierte Anfang der 1970er Jahre in Wien an der Musikuniversität bei Hans Swarowsky. Damit teilt er Ausbildungsstätte und Lehrer mit Zubin Mehta, dem 13 Jahre älteren Maestro, nach dessen krankheitsbedingter Absage Ádám Fischer nun im "Klassik-Treffpunkt" zu Gast ist. Am selben Abend dirigiert Fischer an der Wiener Staatsoper die erste von drei "Fidelio"-Aufführungen. Dass er sich trotzdem den Vormittag für das RadioCafe und Ö1 Zeit nimmt, ist für uns alle eine große Freude und Ehre.

Man darf sagen, dass Ádám Fischer nicht nur einer der bekanntesten, sondern auch einer der beliebtesten Dirigenten unserer Zeit ist; das gilt für die Menschen, die mit ihm Musik machen ebenso wie für sein Publikum. (1 hr., 35 min.)

SPECIAL PROGRAM: Building a Library: Leonard Bernstein's Candide with Edward Seckerson.

Based on Voltaire's 18th-century satirical novel about the misadventures of the pure-hearted and naive Candide and his much more worldly mate Cunégonde, Leonard Bernstein's 1956 operetta isn't just another Broadway show. It opened during the infamous witch hunts of Senator McCarthy and the House Un-American Activities Committee, which Bernstein and and book author Lillian Hellman had experienced firsthand. So alongside the blend of wit, sophistication and comedy, including brilliant parodies of operatic forms like 'Glitter and be Gay', the references to the Spanish Inquisition - 'What a day, what a day for an auto-da-fe' - and the irony of Candide's mantra that everything is for the best in the best of all possible worlds give the work a dark undercurrent.

That Candide never had the lasting success he thought it deserved really bugged Bernstein who tinkered with it on-and-off until the end of his life, resulting in multiple versions and the question of which, if any, is definitive. (2 hrs., 15 min.)

Opera: THOMAS ADÈS
The Exterminating Angel

Following the rapturous response to his last opera, The Tempest, the Met presents the American premiere of Thomas Adès’s The Exterminating Angel, inspired by the classic Luis Buñuel film of the same name. Hailed by the New York Times at its 2016 Salzburg Festival premiere as “inventive and audacious … a major event,” The Exterminating Angel is a surreal fantasy about a dinner party from which the guests can’t escape. Tom Cairns, who wrote the libretto, directs the new production, and Adès conducts his own adventurous new opera.

Opera on 3: Mark-Anthony Turnage: Coraline
Kate Molleson presents the world premiere of Mark-Anthony Turnage's Coraline - an operatic version of the dark fantasy tale by Neil Gaiman, directed by Aletta Collins with libretto by Rory Mullarkey. Soprano Mary Bevan sings the title-role with a cast including mezzo-soprano Kitty Whately and baritone Alexander Robin Baker who are making their Royal Opera debuts. Sian Edwards conducts the Britten Sinfonia.

During the interval, Kate is joined by guest Fiona Maddocks with contributions from Mark-Anthony Turnage and Mary Bevan.

Neil Gaiman has transformed the landscape of children's literature with his highly inventive, atmospheric and otherworldly narratives. His prize-winning novella, Coraline is packed with astonishing imagery - a much-loved story about a girl who discovers a door in her parents' house, leading to an entirely different place and family. For Mark-Anthony Turnage "the fundamental message beneath the story is that we shouldn't be afraid to do what we believe is right. Coraline is brave, not because she doesn't cry or get scared, but because despite these things she still tries her best and doesn't give up. That's why I wanted to write Coraline, because here's a message well worth telling; through opera or in any other way."

Coraline ..... Mary Bevan (soprano)
Mother/Other Mother ..... Kitty Whately (mezzo-soprano)
Father/Other Father ..... Alexander Robin Baker (baritone)
Miss Spink/Ghost Child 1 ..... Gillian Keith (soprano)

Oper (Starts at 1804/2:04PM): Aus Barcelona: Gounods Oper "Romeo und Julia"
Das berühmteste Liebesdrama der Welt, in Musik gefasst von Charles Gounod. In Barcelona treten zwei Nachwuchs-Stars auf: die russisch-österreichische Sopranistin Aida Garifullina und der albanisch-italienische Tenor Saimir Pirgu.

Julia - Aida Garifullina
Ste´phano - Tara Erraught
Gertrude - Susanne Resmark
Romeo - Saimir Pirgu
Tybalt - David Alegret
Benvolio - Ben~at Egiarte
Mercutio - Gabriel Bermu´dez

Grégorio - Germa´n Olvera
Capulet - Ruben Amoretti
Pater Lorenzo - Nicola Ulivieri
Herzog von Verona - Stefano Palatchi
Pater Jean - Dimitar Darlev
Chor und Orchester des Gran Teatre del Liceu
Leitung: Josep Pons

(Aufnahme vom 22. Februar 2018 aus dem Gran Teatre del Liceu)

In Barcelona kommt Gounods Oper „Roméo et Juliette“ als Koproduktion des Gran Teatre del Liceu und der Santa Fe Opera auf die Bühne. In dieser Inszenierung scheitern die Liebenden nicht an der Feindschaft zweier Familien in Padua, sondern an den Tücken des Amerikanischen Bürgerkriegs. Das ändert aber nichts an der überfließenden Romantik der bezaubernden Oper, die in Barcelona einmal mehr sehr tränenreich zu Ende geht.

Anschließend:
Brahms: 1. Klavierkonzert d-Moll op. 15 (Krystian Zimerman / Berliner Philharmoniker / Simon Rattle)
Mozart: Streichquintett D-Dur KV 593 (Arthur Grumiaux und Arpad Gérecz, Violine / Georges Janzer und Max Lesueur, Viola / Eva Czako, Violoncello) (3 hrs., 56 min.)

Opera Night: The Metropolitan Opera New York presents Thomas Ades' The Exterminating Angel

Following the rapturous response to his last opera, The Tempest, the Met presents the American premiere of Thomas Ades's The Exterminating Angel, inspired by the classic Luis Bunuel film of the same name. Hailed by the New York Times at its 2016 Salzburg Festival premiere as 'inventive and audacious ... a major event,' The Exterminating Angel is a surreal fantasy about a dinner party from which the guests can't escape. Tom Cairns, who wrote the libretto, directs the new production, and Ades conducts his own adventurous new opera. (3 hrs.)

Opernkonzert: Zum 100. Geburtstag: "Aus der U-Bahn auf die Bühne"

Eine Hommage an die Sopranistin Astrid Varnay
Von Marek Kalina

Die Opernkarriere der in Stockholm geborenen amerikanischen Sängerin mit ungarischen Wurzeln begann 1941 mit einem "Einspringer" an der Metropolitan Opera in New York. Die damals 23-jährige Sopranistin trat ohne jegliche Bühnenerfahrung anstelle der plötzlich erkrankten Lotte Lehman als Sieglinde in Wagners "Walküre" auf und absolvierte ein sensationelles Debüt. Als Wagner-Interpretin wurde Astrid Varnay bald weltberühmt. Besondere Erfolge feierte sie in Wagners Festspielhaus, wo sie gemeinsam mit Birgit Nilsson und Martha Mödl zu den Ikonen "Neu-Bayreuths" gehörte. Die 2006 verstorbene Künstlerin wurde zum Inbegriff einer charismatischen Sängerdarstellerin, die allein durch ihre Bühnenpräsenz - nicht nur in Wagner-Rollen - das Publikum zu fesseln vermochte.
