About This Event

Brahms’s Tragic Overture is not so much tragic as a ‘serious’ follow-up to his more frivolous Academic Festival Overture.

Dedicated ‘To the memory of an angel’, Berg’s luminous Violin Concerto is an intensely moving personal testament to the death of a young woman, quoting Bach’s funeral chorale ‘Es ist genug’.

Thomas Larcher’s nocturnal wanderings receive their UK premiere before a joyous journey down the Rhine in Schumann’s Third Symphony, which climaxes in a musical homage to Cologne Cathedral.
