Deutsche Staatsphilharmonie Rheinland-Pfalz
Robert Schumann: Manfred Overture, Op. 115
Ernest Chausson: Poème
Johannes Brahms: Symphony No. 1
When Karl Adolf Suckow translated Lord Byron's dramatic poem Manfred into German, he thought of Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy as the ideal composer for his words. Eventually, Robert Schumann was to become the composer of an incidental music based on the translation that was inaugurated in 1852, under the baton of Franz Liszt. Also, Ernest Chausson's Poème was inspired by poetry, as the title clearly states and gives the soloist, Anna Tifu, the opportunity to show the expressive qualities and romantic colours of her violin. For the finale of the concert, Michael Francis and the Deutsche Staatsphilharmonie Rheinland-Pfalz have chosen Johannes Brahms's Symphony No. 1 – a truly personal milestone that contributed to finding new paths after Beethoven's titanic oeuvre.
