Musical Vienna – where to?

The premiere of Brahms’ first symphony unsettled even his well-meaning friends: Eduard Hanslick was missing the sunshine; Clara Schumann criticised the daring opening; the work’s bitter defiance shocked Theodor Billroth; Hermann Levi had doubts about the middle movements; Hermann Kretzschmar opined that its passion caused more shock than delight. Karina Canellakis will distill these passions back to the clarity of musical substance that Brahms sets forth with the utmost concentration. She will be aided by two further laterborn composers, whose compositional quality is no less venerable and who had in their respective ways internalised “their” Brahms in order to, for better or for worse, transcend him. Thomas Hampson joins us for the haunting songs from Mahler’s Des Knaben Wunderhorn and Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen.
