Heinz Holliger conducts Schumann and Zimmermann

Heinz Holliger can look back on an impressive career not only as an oboist and composer but also as a conductor. In this concert, he offers an exciting double portrait of Robert Schumann and Bernd Alois Zimmermann. Both were able to combine innovation and musical exuberance, as Schumann’s Spring Symphony and Zimmermann’s ballet Alagoana demonstrate. Thomas Zehetmair presents two of the composer’s works with solo violin.
