A heaven full of violas

Antoine Tamestit, 2017/18 Portrait Artist of the Vienna Konzerthaus and currently of the London Symphony Orchestra as well as Artist in Residence of the Sächsische Staatskapelle Dresden, is one of the most sought-after violists of our time. When he returns to the Lothringerstrasse with the Dresdner Klangkörper and Daniel Harding, two works will be on the programme that were first performed here in 1947: Britten's concert suite "Four sea interludes" from the opera "Peter Grimes" and William Walton's Concerto for Viola and Orchestra, which is considered the first great viola concerto of the 20th century. The soloist at the premiere was Paul Hindemith, a friend of Walton. Friendship also played a musical role in the creation of Edward Elgar's fourteen "Enigma" variations: they are reminiscent of Elgar's confidants.
