Information about the programme

The second part of our Brahms cycle, which Herbert Blomstedt, who is still in convalescence, unfortunately had to cancel, will be conducted by Simone Young. The Australian has been one of the most important conductors of our time for many decades. She regularly makes guest appearances at all leading opera houses and concert halls and will conduct the Ring des Nibelungen at the Bayreuth Festival for the first time this summer.

After a long break, Brahms wrote Symphonies Nos. 3 and 4, like the First and Second before them, again in close succession. And once again, two completely individual works were created. The Third in F major elevates the oscillation between major and minor to a central theme, while the Fourth in E minor crowns Brahms’ symphonic work with references to older music history and one of the greatest variation movements in the orchestral literature: the mighty Passacaglia as the final movement.
