Ludwig van Beethoven: Klavierkonzert Nr. 4 G-Dur op. 58
Johannes Brahms: Sinfonie Nr. 2 D-Dur op. 73
Top sound with a Viennese touch
Herbert von Karajan, Wolfgang Sawallisch, Carlo Maria Giulini, Georges Prêtre, Rafael Frühbeck de Burgos: the list of conducting stars who have accompanied the more than 100-year history of the Vienna Symphony Orchestra and shaped its special Viennese sound is breathtaking. This season, Jaap van Zweden conducts the traditional orchestra in Frankfurt, bringing a fresh approach to his interpretation of three weighty classics. Beatrice Rana, one of the most extraordinary pianists who have recently attracted attention, sits at the piano this evening with Beethoven's Fourth Piano Concerto. Her playing is characterized by power and delicacy at the same time, and is as thoughtful as it is completely natural.
