Philharmonisches Staatsorchester Hamburg / Liza Ferschtman / Joana Mallwitz
- Classical Music
Kurt Weill is known first and foremost for his revolutionary music theatre. In 1921, long before his exile years in America, he wrote his first »Berlin« Symphony. Eight years earlier, Igor Stravinsky had shocked the world of culture with one of the most scandalous premieres in music history: the unique work that owes its timelessness to its unbending, archaic energy was »Le sacre du printemps« (The Rite of Spring). Joana Mallwitz, general director of music of the Nuremberg State Theatre, conducts the Hamburg Philharmonic State Orchestra here for the first time. Erich Wolfgang Korngold's sole Violin Concerto was first performed in America in 1947; the solo part is taken tonight by Liza Ferschtman, who enjoys international success with her charismatic playing, her expressive power and sensitivity.
