Introduction 6.45 pm
Due to the new stricter Corona regulations in Bavaria, cultural events are only allowed to have a maximum capacity of 25 percent. The concerts conducted by Herbert Blomstedt will therefore take place in front of a significantly reduced audience of around 300 people. With regard to ticket sales, we have decided on the following course of action: All tickets will be cancelled and the concerts will go on sale again with a capacity of 25%. Tickets already purchased or pre-ordered are invalid and will be refunded. Ticket sales for the concerts will be completely restarted on November 30 at 9am.

ABOUT THE PROGRAMME
“When I turned 85 I thought: it’s now or never. I have no more duties as principal conductor; now I must do something for Stenhammar.” Since then Herbert Blomstedt has turned 94, and he has remained true to his mission with unbroken commitment. The highly esteemed maestro has already presented works by his Swedish countryman on two occasions with the BRSO. Now he will introduce us to Stenhammar’s Second Piano Concerto, a grand late-romantic opus full of soaring melodies, riveting drama and harrowing intensity. The soloist Martin Sturfält, likewise from Sweden, has already played the piece several times under Blomstedt’s baton. And as Stenhammar’s major “idols” were Sibelius and Beethoven, the “Eroica” Symphony fits perfectly into the concert’s dramatic scheme.
