Elgar, Beethoven & Brahms

Daniel Harding, Rudolf Buchbinder and the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra
{{ message.content }}

Unfortunately, due to health reasons, maestro Mariss Jansons,, will not be able to conduct the concert. However, maestro Daniel Harding promises to be a worthy substitute.


The late German music critic Joachim Kaiser considered him the ultimate Beethoven interpreter: Rudolf Buchbinder tackles the vivacious Piano Concerto No. 2. But before that, the evening gets underway with the magnificent Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra under Daniel Harding performing the overture from Elgar's "Dream of Gerontius". The oratorio, wildly popular in England, makes highly creative use of leitmotifs, clearly intended as an homage to the great master Wagner. The second half is dedicated to Johannes Brahms, opening with a "musical curtain" and ending with a penetrating and profane cantus firmus.

 Rudolf Buchbinder appears by the kind permission of Deutsche Grammophon Gesellschaft


A coproduction with MEZZO, NAXOS and the BR.
