Optimism Made Sound

In his »Tragic Overture,« Johannes Brahms set the tragic itself to music. He renounced scenic inspiration during the creative process and confessed that he had »no particular tragedy in mind as a subject.« Instead, between elaborately shadowed turns of phrase and indulgent pathos, he also brings out the optimism of those who recognize the sublime in suffering – and smile through their tears. With his »Variations on a Theme by Joseph Haydn,« Brahms expressed his admiration for Haydn's epoch. He composed a masterpiece in which the proportions of instrumentation, form and thematic treatment are almost ideal. Johannes Brahms, who still shied away from composing symphonies in those years under the seemingly overpowering impression of Beethoven's symphonies, provided himself with security on the terrain of symphonic orchestral music with the »Haydn Variations«. At the same time, he founded a new form – the orchestral variations. Joseph Haydn himself has his say with his »Sinfonia concertante« in the second half of the concert, where he finds himself in the best company with Josef and Johann Strauss. On this evening, our portraited artist in 2022/23 Emmanuel Tjeknavorian can be experienced not only as a conductor, but also as a violinist.​
