Reveling in Sound

Coolness in performance, passion in playing: with both, piano virtuoso Denis Matsuev has been thrilling audiences worldwide at least since his victory at the renowned Tchaikovsky Competition more than twenty years ago. As a much praised standard bearer for Sergei Rachmaninoff's virtuoso work, he now presents his melancholy, rapturous Second Piano Concerto. At the podium of the Vienna Philharmonic is Franz Welser-Möst, who has a particularly close and productive artistic partnership with the orchestra. Together they will interpret Tchaikovsky's monumental Sixth Symphony. The work, to which Tchaikovsky's brother Modest gave the title »Pathétique«, seems like a swan song to a sinking epoch. It is a typical work of the fin de siècle, in which much of what characterized art, and music in particular, in the decades before fades away.
