The concerts on 5 and 6 December 2019 with Franz Welser-Möst and Alexandre Tharaud are dedicated to the memory of Mariss Jansons. Therefore, a program change was made.
Four years ago Hans Abrahamsen’s Let Me Tell You, with Barbara Hannigan, unleashed storms of applause. Now our programme features another work by this Danish composer: Left Alone, a piano concerto for the left hand. Abrahamsen, who suffers from muscular degradation in his right hand, wrote it for himself, taking Ravel’s concerto as his model, and dedicated it to this evening’s soloist, Alexandre Tharaud. Before then we will hear his memorial orchestration of Hans Werner Henze’s Sonatina 1947 for piano. At the rostrum is Franz Welser-Möst, musical director of the Cleveland Orchestra since 2002.
Rehearsal and the concert von December 5 with conductor Franz Welser-Möst, pianist Alexandre Tharaud and composer Hans Abrahamsen. As the concerts of this week were dedicated to the memory of Mariss Jansons, a program change was made and the Chor des Bayerischen Rundfunks under Howard Arman interpreted the 4th movement of A. Schnittke’s Concerto for Choir “Complete this work which I began in hope and with Your name”. (c) Astrid Ackermann
