Info
Musical milestones characterise the concerts of the Wiener Symphoniker in 2019-20, a season which, in the history of the Orchestra and its Music Director, represents itself both a milestone and a parting of ways. For this is the last season which Philippe Jordan will shape in this capacity together with the Wiener Symphoniker. This is now a time for review and also for a metaphorical outlook: namely through ground-breaking creations in the history of music. There, the work of Johannes Brahms forms a natural centre. Last but not least, this will give prominence to his instrumental concertos at the Wiener Konzerthaus concert hall: technically demanding works where Brahms avoids all purely external brilliance and, instead, employs the sounds of the soul whose tenderness, however, is often threatened by harsh confrontation. For his Piano Concerto No. 1, none other than Yefim Bronfman, Artist in Residence during this season, will sit at the grand piano. This will be combined with another “milestone”: Stravinsky’s Le Sacre du printemps which created a huge scandal at its premiere in 1913.
