Musik im Gespräch
Top-class performances and introductory talks with experts who knowledgeably illuminate the cultural-historical background of the works presented: This makes the cycle »Music under Discussion« a special experience. A concert by the Wiener Philharmoniker in which the two legends Daniel Barenboim and Zubin Mehta interpret concertos by Beethoven and Chopin is accompanied by a discussion on the idea of concertizing; Haydn's and Mozart's successes in London and Prague – relived in concerts by the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen and the Swedish Chamber Orchestra – are placed in their historical context; the private and artistic partnership of Clara and Robert Schumann is discussed in the lovingly compiled cycle, as is the music of the Austrian late Romantic period. A special recommendation, not only for connoisseurs and lovers!
