Beethoven’s Fourth Symphony is performed much less frequently than the heroic Third Symphony and the fateful Fifth Symphony. Unjustly so, because the work captivates with its originality, humour, and spirit.
Andris Nelsons, kapellmeister of the Gewandhaus Orchestra and music director of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, presents the symphony alongside Strauss’ Don Juan, a tone poem full of energy and sophisticated timbres.
Baiba Skride also plays Soﬁa Gubaidulina’s violin concerto Dialog: Ich und Du – an intense, sometimes meditative, sometimes apocalyptic dialogue between solo and orchestra.
