A reunion with maestro Järvi: the Hamburg International Music Festival 2021 brings the busy Estonian conductor back to Hamburg for one of his popular guest appearances here. The programme opens with Tchaikovsky’s String Serenade, which the professed Mozart-lover wrote »from the heart« in 1880. It is followed by Carl Nielsen’s Second Symphony, which is nothing if not emotional: the four movements represent the four human temperaments – choleric, phlegmatic, melancholy and sanguine.
Note: All Hamburg International Music Festival 2021 concerts are available to stream free of charge. Once premiered, each concert stream can be accessed for the whole festival period.
