The works of the 3rd Chamber Concert are all about love and connection in word and sound: When Johannes Brahms set out to compose the “Two Songs”, it was because of his close friendship with his long-time companion, the violinist Joseph Joachim. Brahms wanted to create a musical memorial to his love and composed the “Spiritual Lullaby” based on a text by Emanuel Geibel for his wedding, but withdrew the composition and revised it. Together with “Stillte Sehnsucht” based on a text by Friedrich Rückert, the composer then published both songs on the occasion of another happy event: the baptism of his godchild, Joseph Joachim’s son. In both compositions you can hear the unbridled joy of life, born of love. Leoš Janáček's (late) love for Kamilla Stösslová, who was almost 40 years his junior, was under a completely different and much worse star. In his second string quartet with the programmatic nickname “Intimate Letters” the feelings for the young woman are omnipresent. Just a year before his death, Janáček left behind a frivolous testimony to a great love: eruptive, provocative and passionate.
