InterviewClaudio Abbado, Maurizio Pollini and Anna Prohaska on old and new musical friendships
Claudio Abbado, Maurizio Pollini and Anna Prohaska
Claudio Abbado and Maurizio Pollini: one of the great artistic friendships of classical music. In this concert from 2011, they perform Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 17. A further Mozart soloist is the soprano Anna Prohaska, who is also heard in Alban Berg’s Symphonic Pieces from Lulu. The concert closes with the Adagio from Mahler’s Tenth Symphony: a manifestation of the hopelessness and a farewell to life.
