CANCELLED due to Coronavirus - Korngold and Zemlinsky
- Mahler Nicht zu schnell (Quartettsatz)
- Korngold Violin Concerto
- Zemlinsky Die Seejungfrau
Anyone who wants to know what music for the book Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea sounds like , should definitely listen to Die Seejungfrau. Lush, late romantic music that at times evokes a mysterious, dark world, starting deep at the bottom of the sea. All based on a fairytale by Hans Christian Andersen, and at the same time Zemlinsky's expression of his impossible love for the unattainable Alma Schindler. Impossible, because Alma chose Gustav Mahler. Truly a piece in which you can immerse yourself in the fairy-tale atmospheres below the water table, that cliché does justice to the music today. Subsequently, the violinist will solo in the increasingly popular Violin Concerto by Erich Korngold, an Austro-Hungarian composer who fled from the Nazis and who caused a furore in Hollywood as a composer of film music for The Adventures of Robin Hood and Captain Blood, among others. Fragments of this can be found in his Violin Concerto.
