about the programme
A little over a year ago Zubin Mehta conducted the moving memorial concert for Mariss Jansons, who passed away on 1 December 2019. So when this leading Indian conductor again stands at the helm of the BRSO in January, surely many listeners will recall the past year. The BRSO will play Haydn’s “London” Symphony No. 96 (“The Miracle”) and the BR Chorus will sing the two a cappella choruses from Giuseppe Verdi’s Quattro pezzi sacri: “Ave Maria” and “Laudi alla Vergine Maria”. Afterwards Schubert’s Symphony No. 3 will follow.
NO LIVE AUDIENCE IN January 2021
On January 5, 2021, the Federal Chancellor and the heads of government of the federal states decided to extend the prohibition of events until January 31, 2021, among other measures to contain the corona pandemic. On this basis, the Bayerischer Rundfunk is forced to cancel the concerts of its orchestras, choir and musica viva with live audience until January 31, 2021.
