Franz Welser-Möst had to cancel his participation in these concerts for health reasons. We are grateful to have won Daniel Harding for the project, who can take over the direction of the concerts with a programmatic change: Richard Strauss’ “Sinfonia domestica” will be replaced by Strauss′ “Death and Transfiguration”, “Don Juan” and the “Tanz der sieben Schleier” from the opera “Salome”.

Information about the programme

Daniel Harding will perform Beethoven’s Fifth Piano Concerto together with Leif Ove Andsnes. Composed in 1809 during the Napoleonic occupation of Vienna, its expansive structure exudes a longing for peace and humanity. Instead of the planned Sinfonia domestica, the second part features two of Richard Strauss’ most popular tone poems, Death and Transfiguration and Don Juan, with which the young composer finally embarked on the path to becoming a “musician of the future”. Strauss established his fame as the leading opera composer of his time a few years later with Salome. The culmination of this ground-breaking work is Salome’s lascivious Dance of the Seven Veils – a dramaturgical and tonal fascination to this day.
