mit Daniel Hope
Two artists closely associated with the Konzerthaus will be performing this concert: our former principal conductor Christoph Eschenbach will be conducting the Konzerthausorchester, and Daniel Hope, whom you can meet as a violinist but also as a regular host of the musical salon „Hope@9pm“, will be the soloist.
This time he will play Benjamin Britten's highly demanding Violin Concerto from 1939. After the interval, we will move on to the late 19th century: Pyotr Tchaikovsky died very suddenly in November 1893 just a few days after the successful premiere of his Symphony No. 6.
No wonder rumours were rife about it – it already sounds like a farewell to life with its unusual slow final movement. Whether the composer died of cholera, suicide under pressure or of his own free will will probably never be fully clarified. What is certain, however, is that his last work, the „Pathétique“, is a pinnacle of his oeuvre.
