Gewandhaus Orchestra & Herbert Blomstedt

The first season of the Dresden Music Festival’s Palace Concerts opens with one of the world’s most renowned orchestras, the venerable Gewandhaus Orchestra Leipzig. And hardly a work would be more befitting for this ceremonious context than Mendelssohn’s »Lobgesang«, written by the composer and former Gewandhaus conductor for a lavish celebration of the 400-year anniversary of the invention of the printing press in 1840. The Gewandhaus Orchestra is led by its conductor laureate, Herbert Blomstedt, who celebrates his 90th birthday in 2017. An outstanding musical event!

Staatskapelle Berlin & Daniel Barenboim

The artistic symbiosis between the Staatskapelle Berlin and its chief conductor Daniel Barenboim has been fascinating experts and audiences equally for more than two decades. After performing a complete cycle of Bruckner symphonies in Tokyo, New York and Paris, this extraordinary musical liaison now appears in Dresden: Bruckner’s last, unfinished symphony, his farewell to the world, is paired with one of Mozart’s most melodious piano concertos – with Daniel Barenboim in his celebrated double role as pianist and conductor.

Simone Kermes: »Love«

»Love« – this word suggests drama, passion and great feelings. Problems, trials and tribulations, lust and grief, sublime bliss and deadly wounds – all this is part of Cupid’s arsenal, as we have known since the myths of antiquity about the gods, keepers of many passions. With her impressive coloratura voice and her overwhelming stage presence, Simone Kermes gives new sparkle to love in this program featuring works from various countries and three centuries!

Violin Recital Anne-Sophie-Mutter

In her recitals Anne-Sophie Mutter routinely breaks down boundaries. The exceptional violinist often presents daring new works, showcasing the impressively broad range of her art. A champion of contemporary music, Anne-Sophie Mutter likes to combine works she has commissioned with classical ones. Thus, her recital in the Palace Concerts series includes not only the famous Partita in D-minor by Bach and Brahms’ Scherzo from the romantic »F-A-E Sonata«, but also pieces by Penderecki which are full of surprises and manage to combine extremely different elements in one whole.

Anne-Sophie Mutter – Violin
