About the Concert

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

"There the melodies fly, so that one must be careful not to tread on them" - Johannes Brahms' Second Symphony reveals that he composed it in the middle of nature. He spent an entire summer at Lake Wörthersee in Austria, where it is still possible to trace where he came across these melodies. Even audiences at the time thought they could hear blue skies, trickling springs, sunshine and cool shadows, and to this day it is probably his most popular work for orchestra. Robert Schumann's Violin Concerto, on the other hand, is completely inward-looking and for a long time it was therefore somewhat overshadowed by other concertos of its kind. Very human and full of soulful emotions set to music, it is in no way inferior to them!
