Béla Bartók
Concerto for two Pianos, Percussion and Orchestra
- interval -

Lucas and Arthur Jussen have made music together since earliest childhood – and you can tell just by listening to them. For years, international concert life has been unthinkable without the brilliant piano duo and with Béla Bartók’s double concerto, they finally make their first guest appearance with the Tonkunstler Orchestra. The central movement, an atmospheric nocturne, finds its counterpart in the sprawling Andante of shattering contrasts from Franz Schubert’s Eighth Symphony. Incidentally, the composer was never able to hear his own final symphony, which was for many years considered unperformable, even though it was ranked as the most important of the first half of the 19th century after Beethoven.
