A thousand magical memories

The Vienna Chamber Orchestra presents 109 years of music history at its upcoming matinee: in addition to Chopin's Piano Concerto No. 1 from 1830, which forms the programmatic centerpiece, Felix Weingartner's Serenade op. 6 from 1882 - his only work for pure string orchestra! - and Béla Bartók's Divertimento for String Orchestra, composed in 1939 for Paul Sacher and his Basel Chamber Orchestra.
»It should give the impression of looking at a place that evokes a thousand magical memories«, said Frédéric Chopin about his Piano Concerto in E minor. With the premiere of the work on October 11, 1830, he bid farewell to his homeland, which he would leave forever a few days later. The Austrian-Romanian pianist Maria Radutu will be the soloist at the matinee at the end of May. She began her career in the 1990s as a child prodigy, was a founding member of the New Piano Trio and director of the social project »Building Bridges« and is currently artistic director of the Keys to Heaven Piano Festival at Esterházy Palace. Hong Kong-born conductor Jimmy Chiang will be conducting the concert, which marks his Konzerthaus debut.
