The London Symphony Orchestra (2G)

LONDON SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA (2G) -  Effective and full of images

14, January 2022, Elbphilharmonie, Great Hall

Miklós Rózsa was awarded the Oscar for the film music to "Ben Hur", and not only for that! But few people know that his Violin Concerto, composed for Jascha Heifetz in 1953, was also used in Hollywood as the film music for Billy Wilder's "The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes". It is thanks to Sir Simon Rattle and his exciting choice of programme for his second concert in residence with the London Symphony Orchestra that this expressive work will be heard alongside Sibelius's 7th Symphony, composed in one piece, and Bartók's Suite from "The Miraculous Mandarin". Bartók's expressionist dance pantomime once caused a theatre scandal at its premiere in Cologne in 1926: All further performances were banned by the then mayor Konrad Adenauer. More than 100 years later, the strongly rhythmically accentuated music, marked by garish effects, still leaves no listener cold.

Please note: This event takes place under the application of the 2G rule, only vaccinated and recovered persons are admitted.
