3 concert with Manfred Honeck

  • Manfred Honeck and Matthias Goerne

    Manfred Honeck and Matthias Goerne

    The orchestral songs by Richard Strauss are gems in which the intimacy of the Lied is combined with virtuoso mastery of the orchestral sound. Besides the Strauss songs, Conductor Manfred Honeck and baritone Matthias Goerne, who is in demand around the world, will present Schubert Lieder in new orchestra arrangements. On the second half of the concert, you can hear Dvořák’s Eighth, a symphony which can be described as “in good spirits” – quite a rarity in the late Romantic era.

    In this concert from the 2016 Easter Festival, Manfred Honeck conducts Robert Schumann’s Cello Concerto with Yo-Yo Ma as the soloist, and Tchaikovsky’s Pathétique – Romantic late works which could hardly be more contrasting. While Schumann in his work finds his way to contemplation and inward singing, Tchaikovsky in his last symphony aggressively bares his pain as his pride to the listener.

    Anne-Sophie Mutter plays Dvořák’s Violin Concerto

    The career of Anne-Sophie Mutter, who made her debut with the Berliner Philharmoniker under the direction of Herbert von Karajan when she was only thirteen, is inextricably linked with the orchestra. This recording documents a guest performance with Manfred Honeck and Dvořák’s Violin Concerto. As always, the unique tone of the violinist is astounding: velvety and rich while still fresh and flexible, unspeakably beautiful but never aiming for superficial gloss.
