Three particularly close and long-term friends of the Berliner Philharmoniker meet in this concert: the conductor Daniel Harding, the violinist Frank Peter Zimmermann and the baritone Christian Gerhaher. The programme includes Beethoven’s Violin Concerto, which combines tender cantabile from the soloist with vigorous symphonic power. Gustav Mahler’s songs from Des Knaben Wunderhorn, on the other hand, impress with their Romantic, folk-like tone, unfiltered melancholy and subtle humour.
