Violinist Frank Peter Zimmermann is once again a guest with the Munich Philharmonic.

  • Frank-Peter Zimmermann, violin
  • Dima Slobodeniouk, conductor

Unfortunately, conductor Mikko Franck has to cancel at short notice the work period with the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra planned for this week due to acute health reasons. We are pleased that Dima Slobodeniouk has agreed to take over the concerts on Wednesday and Thursday. For this purpose, the program has been adjusted as follows: The German premiere of “Serenades” by Magnus Lindberg will be postponed to a later date, and Schumann’s 4th Symphony will be played instead of the “Rosenkavalier” Suite by Richard Strauss. The Violin Concerto in D major by Igor Stravinsky with Frank Peter Zimmermann and the Octet for Winds with the Munich Philharmonic’s own orchestra soloists remain unchanged.

 

With a idiosyncratic and ironic approach, Igor Stravinsky composed his Violin Concerto in D, which the Munich Philharmonic will perform in a long-awaited reunion with Frank Peter Zimmermann. Stravinsky’s Octet offers our own wind soloists a special opportunity to demonstrate their virtuosity. For his unusually scored chamber work, the composer had a precise idea of what it should sound like: “dry, cool, clear and sparkling, just like champagne”.

Programme

  • Igor Stravinsky: Concerto for violin and orchestra in D major; Octet for wind instruments
  • Robert Schumann:4th Symphony
