about the programme

The Swedish trumpeter Håkan Hardenberger is second to none in ensuring that there exists a wealth of contemporary concertos for his instrument. The works written for him by such composers as Henze and Pärt, Takemitsu and HK Gruber, have long ago found their way into the standard repertoire. One such work is Harrison Birtwistle’s Endless Parade of 1987. Bookending this exciting modern trumpet concerto are Schubert’s “Unfinished” and a gem that transports us to the world of the French baroque. Thomas Adès’s artful orchestrations of Couperin preserve the grace of the original harpsichord pieces while projecting a sophisticated novel soundscape. It is even worth detecting the modernism, the disturbing fractured radicality, in the familiar tunes of Schubert’s “Unfinished”. Our guide on this far-flung musical journey is the British conductor Daniel Harding.

BRSO-concerts without live audience until april 5, 2021

On February 10, 2021, the Federal Chancellor and the heads of government of the federal states decided to extend the prohibition of events until March 7, 2021, among other measures to contain the corona pandemic. The orchestra’s anticipation of being able to play in front of a live audience again after Lockdown is great. Unfortunately, it is extremely unlikely that this will be possible before Easter. Therefore the BRSO has decided not to give concerts in front of a live audience up to and including April 5 (Easter Monday).
