SWR Symphonieorchester / Currentzis «Mahler: Symphony No. 3»
This year Teodor Currentzis begins the cycle with Mahler’s Third — and ostensibly longest — Symphony. Arnold Schoenberg described it as a work of «the most uncompromising truthfulness», and one which offered a glimpse into Mahler’s soul. The heterogeneous brittleness of the six-movement work has challenged generations of conductors – so we can be all the more excited to hear the interpretation of the creative genius from Perm.

Punch Brothers «All Ashore»
The five-member acoustic quartet of mandolin virtuoso Chris Thile will perform their new programme in the Wiener Konzerthaus. «The Washington Post» said of the Punch Brothers that they «stopped Bluegrass from getting dusty». For a band that started in a small club, they now perform on all of the world’s great stages and their performances combine irrepressible joy with breathtaking virtuosity.
