Information about the programme

“I am quite aware that I am no longer relevant for the present.” What sounds like resignation in this remark by Carl Reinecke can be more accurately understood as an expression of noble modesty. The composer believed in the artistic worth of his musical legacy until the very end – and the BRSO likewise concurs, which is why Reinecke plays the central role in this chamber concert that celebrates his 200th birthday. Among the members of the orchestra, flautist Henrik Wiese considers Reinecke’s genial sextet and his clearly more classically oriented octet to be “gems of their era”: “Reinecke wanted to give everyone the opportunity to display their instrumental skills – not just the esteemed flute.” Because a serenade is also required for such a milestone birthday, Reinecke’s pupil Janáček provides a harmonious diversion: “Youth, golden youth!” Haas, in turn, was Janáček’s pupil. He died in Auschwitz – but his music survived. None of them have been forgotten.
