Virtuosity and humanity

Igor Stravinsky's second work for Diaghilev's »Ballets russes«, the dance play »Petrushka«, is about the sad fate of a marionette, slave of her impresario and finally victim of a jealous begrudge. The association with the pressure of competition between highly gifted, mercilessly drilled soloists, whether in ballet or concert, is evident, but does not catch on with Vilde Frang, who once raved in an interview about her »almost fairy-tale childhood in a peaceful environment in Norway«. Perhaps it is this naturalness of her sensitive virtuosity that regularly makes critics go into raptures. Before the Norwegian violinist's freestyle performance of Mendelssohn's E minor Concerto, Santuu-Matias Rouvali at the symphony podium heats up the mood with a lusciously galloping Rossini Overture. From his basic training as a studied percussionist, a fellow guild member of Sir Simon Rattle, for example, the 36-year-old Finn is certainly a dream cast for Stravinsky's rhythmically demanding musical language and thus the tricky magician behind Petrushka.
