New Year's Concert of the Junge Philharmonie Brandenburg at the Konzerthaus Berlin

The Junge Philharmonie Brandenburg invites you to its traditional New Year's concert at the Konzerthaus Berlin. The orchestra, conducted by Peter Sommerer, together with soloist Claudio Bohórquez, dedicates itself to one of the most demanding concertos in the cello literature: Joseph Haydn's Cello Concerto No. 1 in C major. Long lost, it was rediscovered only in 1961. If the work is still late baroque at the beginning, passionate virtuosity becomes apparent in the third movement at the latest, as it was becoming increasingly popular at the time in the flourishing Viennese classical period.

The centerpiece of the concert is Anton Bruckner's 4th Symphony. Bruckner achieved his breakthrough with this work. The success has remained with the Fourth to this day. Along with the Seventh, it is one of Bruckner's most popular works and a highlight of symphonic literature.
