Introduction 60 minutes before the start of the event

Wagner's "Faust Overture" - inspired by Berlioz's "Roméo et Juliette" Symphony and Beethoven's Ninth - opens this concerto with dark pathos. Directly linking to the time of its composition at the beginning of the 1840s, the epitome of the romantic piano concerto follows with Elisabeth Leonskaja as soloist: Schumann's Piano Concerto in A minor, in which the composer strives for the aesthetic ideal of the close interlocking of piano and orchestra. The second half of the concert moves into the modern era with the second symphony by Heinz Winbeck (1946-2019), premiered in 1987 under the baton of Dennis Russell Davies. For Davies, Winbeck's five symphonies are a "logical and honest continuation of the thought and traditions of Bruckner and Mahler." In this spirit, Winbeck revives the symphonic genre full of ingenuity, verisimilitude, and modern contrasts.
