Bernd Richard Deutsch
Concerto for Cello and Orchestra
- interval -
César Franck

Bernd Richard Deutsch has been a firm friend of the Tonkunstler Orchestra since the emotional opening to the 2014 season with his Triple Concerto for Trumpet, Trombone, Tuba and Orchestra. The composer from the Lower Austrian town of Wöllersdorf now brings his new Cello Concerto, commissioned by the Tonkunstler, to the stage, bookended by Ludwig van Beethoven’s restlessly driven and tense «Coriolanus» Overture and the famous Symphony in D minor by César Franck. When the latter was premiered in 1889 in the Conservatoire de Paris, Franck’s idiosyncratic style asked too much of the audience. Now the piece is an acknowledged masterpiece and proves that today’s scandal can become tomorrow’s classic.
