Thomas Hengelbrock IV

Festival opening concert

Description Program Artists

When the Münchner Philharmoniker come together with Thomas Hengelbrock, we can count on hearing the classics. Mozart and Beethoven have long since been abducted from the flagship orchestras by small, sleek specialist ensembles, but now, after all the inevitable polarization, we can finally take a deep breath and enjoy the synthesis: the best of both worlds, the sweeping lines along with the surprising details – that is, the Münchner Philharmoniker and Hengelbrock in a nutshell. For this concert, Turkish Mozart specialist Fazil Say has chosen a concerto whose slow movement translates the magic of an English garden into music. At first calm skies, and then gradually, the clouds gather. In Beethoven’s “Eroica,” the revolution finally bursts forth – the very storm that was quietly anticipated by Mozart’s clouds.
