Info
For the tenth anniversary of the Basel Chamber Orchestra, Paul Sacher, its founder and director, had commissioned a “work not too difficult” to mark the occasion. The Orchestra at that time comprised an equal number of professional and amateur musicians. This was when Béla Bartók wrote the Music for Strings, Percussion and Celesta, which was to become a key work of the 20th century. The Swiss musicologist Hans Rolf Oesch described this work as one of the “most incredible creative achievements” of Bartók. Similarly, the status of the first and only Violin Concerto by Johannes Brahms is uncontested today. His contemporaries were still at odds with its assessment: On the one hand, the great violinist Joseph Joachim had been significantly involved in the genesis of the concerto and encouraged Brahms in its creation, whereas the Spanish violin virtuoso Pable de Sarasate rejected it completely. By now, Brahms’s Violin Concerto is considered one of the most important representatives of its genre. The multiple award-winning violinist Gil Shaham will interpret this downright symphonic concerto under the direction of the American star conductor Kent Nagano and the Wiener Symphoniker.
