Symphony concert 3: Massimo Zanetti, Mischa Maisky & Yulia Deyneka

Max Bruch Suite on Russian Themes op. 79 b (1905)
Romance for Viola and Orchestra in F major op. 85
Kol Nidrei for Cello and Orchestra in D minor op. 47
Richard Strauss Don Quixote op. 35

He makes the cello sing: Mischa Maisky is a cosmopolitan and an exceptional musician, as well as the celebrated master student of the cello legend Mstislav Rostropovich. Together with conductor Massimo Zanetti and viola virtuoso Yulia Deyneka, he proves that the »incorrigible romantic« Max Bruch has unfairly stood in the shadow of his contemporaries for too long. The battle against windmills which Richard Strauss based his op. 35 on was to be Bruch’s fate even beyond death. Maligned by the National Socialists for his composition of the Jewish Kol Nidrei, virtually all his work initially disappeared from public consciousness. Yet Bruch’s gentle harmonies and sensuous melodies deserve to be heard, especially from a master of the »singing sound«!
