Energetic humour

For almost 20 years, the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen and its chief conductor Paavo Järvi have been a musical power couple that has documented its artistic force through various projects, including an electrifying recording of Beethoven’s symphonies. With Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 1 and two late Haydn symphonies, Järvi and his orchestral dream team have the perfect playground for showing off their skills.

After throwing off the shackles of life as a court composer, Haydn was invited twice to London on concert tours. For these journeys he composed twelve new symphonies full of curiosity, humour, experimentation and an almost incidental perfection. Haydn thereby demonstrated why he was the measure of all things for his successors, including Ludwig van Beethoven.

In his Piano Concerto No. 1, Beethoven follows his teacher Haydn very closely, and yet he is also already pointing far ahead to the future with a certain freedom. That provides the young German pianist Fabian Müller a perfect opportunity to get involved in the musical contest.
