Most composers could only dream of their music having such an effect – or perhaps they’d rather not? The premiere of Igor Stravinsky’s ballet «Le Sacre du Printemps» in Paris in 1913 ended with a regular scandal. To this day, this key 20th century masterpiece is considered one of the most complex and demanding orchestral compositions – but a challenge that the Tonkunstler Orchestra and Krzysztof Urbański face with particular relish! Max Bruch’s First Violin Concerto was, by contrast, a great success right from the start. The solo part is taken care of by the globally celebrated virtuoso Emmanuel Tjeknavorian.
