Info
The great conductor Kent Nagano will take the Wiener Symphoniker through music from three centuries. It starts with the contemporary Concert Overture Con brio by the German composer and clarinettist Jörg Widmann. This orchestral work, premiered in Munich in 2008, reflects the spirit of Beethoven’s Symphonies Nos. 7 and 8 but applies a modern musical language of its very own. A step back in the past leads to Béla Bartók’s Music for Strings, Percussion and Celesta. With this work of 1936, commissioned by Paul Sacher for the Basel Chamber Orchestra, Bartók created a key work of the 20th century, which fascinates music lovers and musicologists alike. Finally, as a representative of the 19th century, the first and only Violin Concerto in D major by Johannes Brahms is an absolute must. To make this happen, after more than 20 years, the multiple award-winning Israeli-American violinist Gil Shaham will again be on stage as the soloist with the Wiener Symphoniker.
