Alan Gilbert and Frank Peter Zimmermann

The New Viennese School with Anton Webern and Alban Berg meets its great predecessor, Johannes Brahms. Available until 2 March 2021.

Concert stream available until 2 March 2021.


On the threshold separating the Romantic era from the 20th century, chief conductor Alan Gilbert performs pieces by Alban Berg and Anton Webern together with Brahms's Third Symphony. A work, to quote Clara Schumann, marked by both »poetry« and a »mysterious magic«. With this score, Brahms paved the way for his successors.

Anton Webern's orchestral idyll »Im Sommerwind« still breathes unmistakeably the atmosphere of Romanticism, while the twelve-tone Violin Concerto by Alban Berg, »Dem Andenken eines Engels«, is likewise one of the best-known and most heart-rending works of its time. Alan Gilbert is supported in the Berg by the exceptional violinist Frank Peter Zimmermann.
