Of heroes, nature and humanity: The Honeck brothers – one is the concert master of the Vienna Philharmonic, the other conducts the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra – reunite to perform the violin concerto written by Mozart when he was just 19. Mozart’s biographer Alfred Einstein wrote about the work: «If there is a marvel among Mozart’s oeuvre, then it is this concerto.» It nestles between two musical depictions of nature and humanity: Antonín Dvořák’s «Rusalka Fantasy» and Mahler’s First Symphony, which describes the life of a hero.
Please note that the programme had to be slightly changed. Instead of Antonín Dvořák's «Rusalka Fantasy» the orchestra will be playing Lollapalooza by John Adams. Thank you for your understanding.
