ABOUT THIS CONCERT
The MCO and Artistic Advisor Daniele Gatti concluded their highly acclaimed cycle of Beethoven symphonies in 2016. On this tour, they briefly revisit this familiar territory with Beethoven’s Second and Sixth Symphonies. Violinist Christian Tetzlaff joins them for Berg’s Violin Concerto: written upon the death of Manon Gropius, the young daughter of Alma Mahler and Walter Gropius, this piece is dedicated “To the Memory of an Angel”.
The MCO’s most recent performance in Dresden was in June 2014, also at the Dresden Music Festival under the baton of Daniele Gatti, in a concert honouring the memory of Claudio Abbado.
