Semyon Bychkov conducts Strauss and Schubert
In this concert from June 2014, the Berliner Philharmoniker and Semyon Bychkov commemorate the 150th anniversary of the birth of Richard Strauss. With Bruno Delepelaire and Máté Szűcs as the soloists, the programme included the composer’s Don Quixote, a work regarded as the epitome of symphonic tragi-comedy. Contrasting emotions were also in evidence in Franz Schubert’s Great Symphony, which constantly shifts in its expression of beauty and the abyss.
