About the Concert

Tickets for this event will be available from 12.06.2024 from 10 am.

With our new "Best of Classical Music" concert format, you can immerse yourself in the most famous works of classical music. We begin with a presentation that briefly introduces the work and provides listening tips. Then you can enjoy the selected symphony in a short concert. Afterwards, you are invited to join us at the Kulturpalast bar. Here, host Malte Arkona will be in conversation with the conductor on a small stage in the room. There will be no musicology on the agenda - Malte would rather lead us into the personal world of our respective guests. 

To the concert:

The audience had not expected so much sobbing and sighing when Tchaikovsky's sixth and last symphony was premiered in 1893. It was unusual even for the pathos-loving Russians. But they understood that the composer was concerned with the last things: pain, farewell, death, and that he wanted to give them something that could also comfort them. Today this symphony is one of the most famous and popular of the 19th century, and this much can be said: it also has cheerful, joyful passages.
