Palace Concert

Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France – Franck – Hahn

Hilary Hahn grew up a child prodigy and is a world-class violinist today, enchanting audiences with her faultless technique and ravishing tone. At the Kulturpalast, the charismatic American musician will perform Jean Sibelius’ Violin Concerto, which was declared »unplayable« shortly after its world premiere. Today, the composition with its dark timbre, folkloristic verve and impressive challenges for the virtuoso soloist is acknowledged as one of the most important violin works of the 20th century.

Palace Concert

Bamberg Symphony – Hrůša – Hannigan

The Bamberg Symphony, famous for its characteristic dark, smooth yet brilliant sound, presents itself to the Dresden audience with its young Czech chief conductor Jakub Hrůša for the first time, joined by the fantastic Canadian soprano Barbara Hannigan. The singer has been celebrated for years as a vocal virtuoso and exceptional performer on stages around the world. Together with the Bamberg Symphony, this outstanding protagonist of musical modernism performs Hans Abrahamsen’s song cycle »Let me tell you«, which the Danish composer wrote especially for the soprano, commissioned by the Berlin Philharmonic and the Danish Arts Foundation. The second half of the program features Bruckner’s Fourth Symphony, often considered his most popular symphony. Its sobriquet »The Romantic« was bestowed upon it by the composer himself.

Festive Christmas Concert:Dresden Festival Orchestra – Bolton – Sabadus

Christmas is a celebration of love. And where would music, especially opera, be without love? Under Ivor Bolton’s baton, the Dresden Festival Orchestra takes its audience on a journey through the fascinating world of baroque opera, joined by one of the world’s best countertenors for this Christmas concert. Valer Sabadus, celebrated for his crystal-clear voice, sings famous arias by Handel, Vivaldi and Gluck, traversing the range from gentle melancholy to virtuosic high drama. His delicate cantilenas and racy coloraturas are bookended by festive baroque orchestral works – performed by the Dresden Music Festival’s own specialist ensemble for historically informed performance practice.

Palace Concert

Cappella Andrea Barca & Sir András Schiff

Andrea Barca – one of Mozart’s contemporaries – dedicated most of his artistic career to interpreting the latter’s piano works. Thus, choosing him as the namesake for the ensemble of international soloists and chamber musicians assembled by András Schiff was a logical step, given that Mozart’s works are also among the core repertoire of the Hungarian-born piano virtuoso and his Cappella. The programme chosen for the Palace Concerts – the Symphony No. 39 in E flat major (»Swan Song«) and the Piano Concertos Nos. 15 and 17 – consists entirely of works illustrating Mozart’s boundless imagination, while also pointing ahead to Ludwig van Beethoven and the perfection of classical form.

Cappella Andrea Barca
Sir András Schiff – Piano and Direction

  • Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: Concerto for Piano and Orchestra No. 15 in B flat major K. 450
  • Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: Symphony No. 39 in E flat major K. 543
