about the programme

Ever since the corona pandemic hobbled our concert life, conductors such as Simon Rattle have tried to make the best of our limited opportunities by presenting works rarely heard in “normal” concert situations owing to their small instrumental formats. Brahms’s Serenade in A major, with its rapturous Adagio for Clara Schumann, is considered a major precursor to his symphonies. It was most recently conducted by Lorin Maazel in his Brahms cycle over 20 years ago. And Haydn’s Symphony No. 90 has never been played by the BRSO at all. Now it will receive just the right historically informed backdrop. And Stravinsky’s short Symphonies d’instruments à vent, written in memory of Claude Debussy in 1920, channel our focus entirely on the BRSO’s wind section.


Rehearsal with Sir Simon Rattle

“The world is always better with Haydn!” Sir Simon Rattle rehearses the Symphony No. 90 in C major, Hob. I:90 – a piece that the BRSO is playing for the first time in the orchestra’s history! We were there at the rehearsal.

BRSO-concerts without live audience until april 5, 2021

On March 3, 2021, the Federal Chancellor and the heads of government of the federal states decided to extend the lockdown until March 28, 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).
