Saint-Saëns on demand

From now on, you can experience the portrait about Camille Saint-Saëns again! After the concert has been streamed live, it is now available as a video on demand for free. GO PLUS presents three of the most important works of the French composer: listen to »Danse macabre« and its richness of details, the impressive Symphony No. 3 and the oriental »The Egyptian«, Saint-Saëns’ last piano concerto.

»We can be heroes«

At the age of 25, Mozart created the opera »Idomeneo« for the opening of the carnival season in Munich. It depicts the tragic narrative of the Cretan King who was forced to sacrifice his own son. 100 years later, Richard Strauss memorialized himself with his gigantic composition for »A Hero’s Life«. In contrast to Strauss, Benjamin Britten portrayed his heroes in a modest fashion combined with British humor. Britten’s only piano concerto will be interpreted by Korean shooting star Suwook Kim.

Brahms, Bruch and Braunfels

Max Bruch’s compositions highlight his appreciation for his friend Johannes Brahms. Bruch composed his piano quintet during the time he spent in Liverpool. Almost one century later, his manuscript was found in an attic in Liverpool. Walter Braunfels chose the inward emigration during the time of National Socialism in Germany and composed his string quintet towards the end of World War II.
