    Keyframes for a Hippogriff − Musical Calligrams in memoriam Hester Diamond, commissioned jointly by the Berliner Philharmoniker Foundation, the New York Philharmonic and the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra (premiere)

    Andrew Watts countertenor, Tölzer Knabenchor

  • Anton Bruckner
    Symphony No. 4 in E flat major “Romantic” (2nd version from 1878/1880)

Bruckner’s “Romantic” Fourth Symphony has a distinct feeling of longing and closeness to nature – for instance, in the horn call at the beginning and the melancholy singing of the strings. The work is conducted by Jakub Hrůša, who also presents the world premiere of Keyframes for a Hippogriff by Olga Neuwirth, one of the most sought-after composers of our time. Neuwirth says the work is about trying “to remain a free soul despite the despair and pain in this world”.
