Olli Mustonen, playing by numbers
Written for Virtual Finland by Mikko Hannuksela, Ondine
Olli Mustonen has merged the preludes and fugues of Bach and Shostakovich into a two-part programme. The first part was recorded in the order of keys used by Bach, i.e. chromatically ascending. The second part, now released by Ondine, features 24 preludes and fugues selected from both composers, organized according to the circle of fifths. Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750) completed the 24 preludes and fugues of Book I of Das Wohltemperierte Klavier in 1722. Dmitri Shostakovich (1906-1975) wrote his 24 preludes and fugues, Op. 87, in 1950-51. Bach's collection is organized by key in chromatically ascending order, whereas Shostakovich - like Chopin in his preludes - follows the circle of fifths. The preludes and fugues of both Bach and Shostakovich are steeped in numerical symbolism. Olli Mustonen perceived that this mathematical logic extended to the structural link between the two collections, a reciprocal symmetry. It is possible to perform all 24 pieces by both composers together without ever having to repeat a key. "These two spirals of keys complement each other wonderfully," Mustonen said of his discovery.

Olli Mustonen
Born in Helsinki on 7 June 1967, Olli Mustonen took his first harpsichord lessons at the age of five and was taught to play the piano by Ralf Gothóni at the age of seven. A year later he made his first composition attempts, and from 1975 studied composition with Einoiuhani Rautavaara. Soon, Mustonen was much sought after, both as a conductor and as a concert pianist (studies with Eero Heinonen). Since 1989, Mustonen has been playing an active role in the musical scene of his home country; first, he became artistic director of the Korsholm Music Festival and from 1990-1992 of the Turku Music Festival as well. He is co-founder and director of the Helsinki Festival Orchestra, and since 2003 has been conducting the chamber orchestra Tapiola Sinfonietta. As a pianist, Mustonen has given concerts with numerous major international orchestras such as the London Symphony Orchestra, the Royal Concertgebouw Orkest, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, the Berlin Philharmonics, and others. In addition, he maintains close working relations with renowned conductors such as Daniel Barenboim, Pierre Boulez and Christoph Eschenbach. In 1999, he performed the world première of Rodion Shchedrin’s Piano Concerto No. 5, which is dedicated to him, with Esa-Pekka Salonen and the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra. For his recording of '24 Preludes and Fugues' by Dmitri Shostakovich and '25 Preludes' by Charles-Valentin Alkan, Mustonen received both the Edison Award and the Gramophone Award in 1992.

Olli Mustonen
Olli Mustonen, geboren am 7. Juni 1967 in Helsinki, erhielt von seinem fünften Lebensjahr an Cembalounterricht und mit sieben Jahren lernte er Klavier bei Ralf Gothóni. Ein Jahr später unternahm er erste Kompositionsversuche und erhielt ab 1975 Kompositionsunterricht bei Einoiuhani Rautavaara. Mustonen avancierte rasch zu einem gefragten Dirigenten und Konzertpianisten (Studium bei Eero Heinonen). Seit 1989 übernimmt Mustonen Aufgaben im Musikleben seines Heimatlandes; zunächst die künstlerische Leitung des Korsholmer Musik-Festivals und 1990-1992 auch die des Turku Music-Festivals. Er ist Mitbegründer und Leiter des Helsinki Festival Orchestra und seit 2003 Dirigent des Kammerorchesters Tapiola Sinfonietta. Als Pianist konzertiert Mustonen international mit den bedeutendsten Orchestern. Er trat bereits gemeinsam mit dem London Symphony Orchestra, dem Royal Concertgebouw Orkest, dem Chicago Symphony Orchestra, den Berliner Philharmonikern und weiteren auf. Eine enge Zusammenarbeit pflegt er mit renommierten Dirigenten wie Daniel Barenboim, Pierre Boulez und Christoph Eschenbach. 1999 brachte Mustonen mit Esa-Pekka Salonen und dem Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra das ihm gewidmete 5. Klavierkonzert von Rodion Shchedrin zur Uraufführung. Für die Einspielung der 24 Präludien und Fugen von Dmitrij Schostakowitsch und den 25 Präludien von Charles-Valentin Alkan erhielt Mustonen 1992 den "Edison Award" und den "Gramophone Award".

Olli Mustonen, Piano / Conductor
'There's some real magic in this disc. His brilliant, glittering, delicate playing adds an icy edge of enchantment and clarity to pieces that are already enchanting in their own right...One feels that Mustonen understands Sibelius' imagination from the inside; outside, his touch gleams with the otherworldly incandescence of frost patterns in the sunlight'.

'There is no questioning the power of Mustonen's artistic vision... his
strongly profiled response to gesture and character - articulated with breathtaking digital eloquence - animates this work's colourful array of Austrian, Russian, Scottish, Welsh and Irish styles with engaging spontaneity'.

Web Search On the Aisle INDEX Olli Mustonen: Mannerism Over Music By Philip Anson / January 12, 2001 On the Aisle Olli Mustonen, piano Solo Recital Carnegie Hall Jan. 12, 2001 The young Finnish pianist Olli Mustonen is one of the classical piano world's new brat pack who seem to be trying to redefine classical pianism through willful "derangement of the senses", to use a Rimbaudesque phrase. Listening to these technically impeccable performers, one wonders if their experimentation is motivated by boredom with the old or fascination with the new. Along with the provocative Croation Ivo Pogorelich and the flamboyant Russian Arcadi Volodos, Mustonen uses the score as a springboard for his own aleatory experiments with tempo, phrasing, and dynamics. I guess Glenn Gould is the father of this eccentric school of young rebels who wilfully alienate conservative listeners, while building a small but vociferous following among the cognoscenti. Pogorelich's slow tempos and weird silences turn his concerts into sessions of mental torture or sublime zen meditation, depending on your expectations. Volodos is the idiot savant of the Steinway, performing astounding digital acrobatics that verge on a circus act.

Viele Facetten – eine Idee
Jan Vogler und das Moritzburg Festival
Das Moritzburg Festival hat ab heute seine Pforten geöffnet. Es ist ein hochkarätig besetztes Kammermusikfestival mit einer profilierten Konzeption und einer ganz eigenen programmatischen Ausrichtung. KLASSIK HEUTE sprach mit dem künstlerishen Leiter des Festivals, den Cellisten Jan Vogler.
KLASSIK HEUTE: Wie lange gibt es das Festival auf Schloss Moritzburg schon?
J an Vogler: Wir konnten im letzten Jahr unser 10jähriges Bestehen feiern, in diesem Jahr findet das Festival also zum elften Mal statt. Diese lange Zeit des Bestehens zeigt schon, dass das Festival auf einer Grundidee basiert, die langfristig gedacht ist.
Waren Sie von Anfang an Künstlerischer Leiter dieses Festivals?
Ja, zunächst aber zusammen mit zwei Kollegen. Ich habe das Festival gegründet mit einem Freund, dem Cellisten Peter Bruns und meinem Bruder, den Geioger Kai Vogler.
Wie kamen Sie auf die Idee, dieses Festival ins Leben zu rufen?

Olli Mustosen mukaan yhteistyö Shtshedrinin kanssa on ollut yksi hänen musiikillisen toimintansa painopisteistä viime vuosina. Säveltäjän teosten syvällisyys, rohkeus ja omaperäisyys ovat tehneet Mustoseen lähtemättömän vaikutuksen."
