Information about the programme

Andrés Orozco-Estrada, the principal conductor of the Vienna Symphony, has already performed Beethoven’s Triple Concerto with the BRSO. Now his programme includes Brahms’s Double Concerto. The special form of a concerto for multiple soloists seems to be at once a challenge and a matter close to his heart. Violinist Renaud Capuçon and cellist Daniel Müller-Schott are the protagonists in Brahms’s “work of reconciliation”. Originally conceived as a cello concerto, Brahms later gave his Op. 102 a part for solo violin, hoping it would help him to re-establish contact with the famous violinist Joseph Joachim. For years the two men had fallen out after Brahms took sides with Joachim’s wife during a marital rift. The concerto was meant to revive the deep friendship the two men had enjoyed for many years. Orozco-Estrada will also conduct Bartók’s suite from The Miraculous Mandarin (1928) and Blacher’s Paganini Variations (1947).
