Isabelle Faust & Jakub Hrůša
The BRSO is giving its début in Gasteig’s Interim Quarter with Jakub Hrůša and the violinist Isabelle Faust. She will play the Britten concerto of 1939, a work whose symphonic earnestness and luscious violin writing place it among the foremost violin concertos of the 20th century. In addition to the insolent and brilliant First Symphony Jakub Hrůša will introduce us to a composer from his own Czech homeland: Miloslav Kabeláč. Advance ticket sales for the concerts on October 28 & 29, 2021 at the Isarphilharmonie will start on October 12.
OUR NEW VENUE – GASTEIG HP8

RICCARDO MUTI: VERDI REQUIEM
A special live recording has been released on the BR-KLASSIK label: the legendary performance of Verdi’s “Messa da Requiem” from October 1981, conducted by the then 40-year-old Riccardo Muti! The vocal soloists are no less prominent: Jessye Norman, Agnes Baltsa, José Carreras and Yevgeny Nesterenko can be heard! “Whoever has not heard this recording does not know the Verdi Requiem! ” Markus Thiel, Münchner Merkur 2021
NAGANO CONDUCTS MESSIAEN
Few performers are as intimately familiar with the musical language of French composer Olivier Messiaen as Kent Nagano. Now BR-KLASSIK presents three masterpieces by the sound magician Messiaen, which Nagano conducted in recent years on the podium of the BRSO. The focus is on the oratorio “La Transfiguration de Notre Seigneur Jésus-Christ”. In addition, the 3-CD box set also includes the works “Poèmes pour Mi” and “Chronochromie”. This edition is released not least in honor of Kent Nagano’s 70th birthday on November 22, 2021.
