With this recording, we are once again showing the concert from the previous day: “Alban Berg’s Violin Concerto is a piece that gets under your skin,” says violinist Frank Peter Zimmermann. Deeply moved by the death of Manon Gropius, the daughter of Alma Mahler and Walter Gropius, the composer created a musical monument to the young girl, and at the same time created one of the most poignant concertos of the 20th century. Antonín Dvořák in his Fifth Symphony, on the other hand, strikes a completely different note – joyful, serene and pastoral.
