CONCERT: Guest performance of the Frankfurt Opera and Museum Orchestra
Today Bruckner's symphonies belong to the core of the concert repertoire. When they were composed at the end of the 19th century, they had to struggle for public recognition. "Interest and astonishment balanced each other out," one reads in contemporary reviews, but also that the composer had been "celebrated stormily". The atmosphere in such concerts, mostly in the Musikverein Hall in Vienna, must have been unique. The violin concerto by Antonín Dvořák, written almost simultaneously, offers a Bohemian counterpoint. It is hard to believe that even this fascinating composition had to overcome a few hurdles before it became a worldwide success. The internationally acclaimed young violinist Yuri Revich will be accompanied by the Frankfurt Opera and Museum Orchestra, which has won several awards as "Orchestra of the Year", under the direction of Sebastian Weigle, General Music Director Frankfurt.
