    Chopin’s Piano Concerto No. 1 with Maurizio Pollini and Christian Thielemann

    No music collection should be without Maurizio Pollini’s legendary Chopin recordings. In this concert, he presents the First Piano Concerto with Christian Thielemann in the Philharmonie. In other ways as well, the evening revolves around the Romantic era: with Schumann’s Genoveva overture, Aribert Reimann’s Schumann fragments and symphonic interludes from Strauss’s opera Intermezzo that virtuosically oscillate between luscious late Romantic sound and pioneering originality.

  • Christian Thielemann and Maurizio Pollini with Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 21

    Christian Thielemann and Maurizio Pollini with Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 21

    Maurizio Pollini, grand segnieur of the piano, here plays Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 21 – as the press wrote – with his “familiar finesse, dexterity and virtuoso brilliance”. Christian Thielemann also conducts two popular works by Franz Listz – Les Préludes and Mazeppa – plus the rarely played Von der Wiege bis zum Grabe, Listz’s final and surprisingly chamber music-like tone poem.

    Claudio Abbado, Maurizio Pollini and Anna Prohaska

    Claudio Abbado and Maurizio Pollini: one of the great artistic friendships of classical music. In this concert from 2011, they perform Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 17. A further Mozart soloist is the soprano Anna Prohaska, who is also heard in Alban Berg’s Symphonic Pieces from Lulu. The concert closes with the Adagio from Mahler’s Tenth Symphony: a manifestation of the hopelessness and a farewell to life.
