INFORMATION ABOUT THE PROGRAMME
The Ukrainian conductor Oksana Lyniv has recently drawn much attention and acclaim. Now she will head the BRSO for the first time. For her début she has chosen Mozart’s E-flat major Sinfonie concertante for violin and viola (K. 364) – a grand, moving dialogue between two string instruments, played by Jehye Lee (leader of the seconds) and Tobias Reifland (solo violist) and accompanied by the exquisite Mozart sound of their orchestra. Mendelssohn’s Fourth Symphony, with its riveting Italianate flair, conveys a high-spirited, effervescent joi de vivre, mingled in the second movement by a pensive orchestral “song without words” on Es war ein König in Thule. A third movement with romantic horn passages is followed by the madcap finale, a swirling saltarello again firmly rooted in Italy.
NO LIVE AUDIENCE IN NOVEMBER
On 28 October, the Federal Chancellor and the heads of government of the federal states decided to prohibit events from 2 November until the end of the month, among other measures to contain the corona pandemic. On this basis, the Bayerischer Rundfunk is forced to cancel the concerts of its orchestras and musica viva. Tickets already purchased will be refunded.
