Liszt: Piano Concerto No. 1 & Suk: "Asrael" Symphony

Bertrand Chamayou, Dresden Philharmonic & Dima Slobodeniouk
{{ message.content }}

The triumph of death is a motif as old as art itself which has forever found new forms. Franz Liszt's first Piano Concerto features a fourth movement which resembles a kind of martial dance. In 1906, Josef Suk named his second symphony after Asrael, the angel of death. It is an exceptional work which leads us into a bottomless abyss, into nothingness, before lifting our souls to heaven. Suk dedicated the peace to the memory of Antonín Dvořák and to the composer's daughter Ottilie, who was also Suk's wife. The second concert from the Concerthall of the Kulturpalast Dresden, LIVE and exclusive here on takt1, featuring the Dresden Philharmonic under Dima Slobodeniouk, with Liszt expert Bertrand Chamayou at the piano. 


A co-production of the Dresden Philharmonic and takt1.
