About the Concert

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

Siblings can be very different. But sometimes they are also very similar. This was the case with Fanny and Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy, who understood each other very well both musically and personally. Felix was only 14 years old when he wrote his Concerto for Two Pianos in E major and performed it with his sister, who was five years older. And as there was no orchestra available at the time, they played the orchestral parts on the two pianos. Lucas and Arthur Jussen, the Dutch brothers who have regularly caused a sensation in concert halls for more than ten years, are likely to be similarly virtuosic: not only with their highly skillful playing, but also with their profound interpretations. Incidentally, they don't want to be described as prodigies: "We're just normal guys. We just love playing music." This is accompanied by Bruckner's Fourth Symphony, the "Romantic", which still evokes a longing for nature today with its bird and hunting calls.
