ARD New Year´s Eve Concert Teodor Currentzis

Tschaikowsky Violin Concerto with Patricia Kopatchinskaja, Ravels Boléro, Stravinskys „The Firebird“

Description Program Artists

We promise: you’ve never heard Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto like this before. The hottest musical tandem in the classical scene, Patricia Kopatchinskaja and Teodor Currentzis, are joined by Currentzis’s SWR Sinfonieorchester, which will be lighting up with a thousand colors in music by Tchaikovsky and Stravinsky’s Firebird. The motto of this New Year? “Make fewer good resolutions, and listen to more good music!” “Good” in the sense of new, fresh, unconsumed. In other words, the way Kopatchinskaja approaches Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto. The way she sings on her violin and gives the melody rougher contours in order to express Tchaikovsky’s longing and his despair, since this longing is seeking something that it will never find. These are the priceless musical moments we are always looking for. But now, and with good reason: let us celebrate! You, our audience, the artists, and of course what brings us all together here: art.
