benefit concert for the süddeutsche zeitung advent calendar

A milestone in the 19th-century symphonic repertoire: even Robert Schumann waxed ecstatic at the “heavenly lengths” of Schubert’s Great C-major Symphony. Schubert’s path-breaking achievement was to compose, only one year after Beethoven’s Ninth, a similarly ambitious work that nonetheless struck out on paths all its own. Mozart’s virtuoso motet Exsultate, jubilate, sung by the Russian coloratura soprano Julia Lezheva, provides stunning opening to our annual benefit concert, held for the Süddeutsche Zeitung’s Advent Calendar. The programme will open with two of the Four Psalms for a cappella chorus by the Norwegian composer Edvard Grieg. Herbert Blomstedt, a Swedish conductor highly esteemed by the Munich public, will lend these pieces a delightful Scandinavian tinge.

On this basis, the Bayerischer Rundfunk is forced to cancel the concerts of its orchestras and musica viva. Tickets already purchased will be refunded.
