Transcendent Beauty of Sound

Soon after its foundation in 1949 by Eugen Jochum, the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra developed into an internationally highly regarded orchestra. It was among the top ten orchestras worldwide in the ranking of the British professional journal Gramophone. Now, with Yannick Nézet-Séguin on the podium, the orchestra will perform Johannes Brahms's Third Symphony, which brought to Clara Schumann's mind »the trickling of brooks, the playing of beetles and mosquitoes«. 

Clara Schumann herself has her say as a composer in this concert – the solo part of her piano concerto is interpreted by one of the most distinguished pianists of the younger generation. Beatrice Rana, born in 1993 in Lecce, is celebrated worldwide for her »sovereign, innate musicality« (The Los Angeles Times) and »orphic seductiveness, a transcendent lightness of touch« (The Times).

We can also look forward to the premiere of »Vers le silence«. The new work is by the Danish composer and music teacher Hans Abrahamsen, who is an authority on the contemporary music scene in Scandinavia. In its catchy structure, his music is reminiscent of his Estonian colleague Arvo Pärt and captivates with its pure beauty of sound.
