Esa-Pekka Salonen on Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring

(Source: reuters.com)

"The miracle of that piece is the eternal youth of it. It’s so fresh it still kicks ass and how many 100-year-old pieces do that? There’s such powerful vitality in that music it’s almost scary."

Esa-Pekka Salonen on his first encounter with Lutosławski

(Source: theartsdesk.com)

"I was a student at the Sibelius Academy and he came on an official visit. I went to his lecture and heard the concert he conducted – I think it was his Livre pour orchestra and the Second Symphony – and was very taken by his music. I felt that it was very powerful and well crafted but yet very direct and immediate – something I could understand, which was not always the case with new music of the 1970s.I was too shy to go and talk to him afterwards; I was dying to, but was sweating too much, so I think I just said “hello”, Finnish-style, and that was it."

really curious as to whether salonen has composed while inebriated since he seems to always be at a bar?

Esa-Pekka Salonen on Witold Lutosławski

(Source: newstatesman.com)

"The image I always have is of an old couple walking hand-in-hand through ruins which are still smoking. They are not even trying to find their family or possessions, they are just silently walking through the devastation.” And what of the oddly joyous codas that so often end the works? “It’s like he felt a sense of responsibility; you can’t leave your audience in that devastated place, you have to give them a tool to dig themselves out of the grave. He was that kind of man."
