An evening with Brahms and the sunlit key of D major! An energetic violin concerto and a Romantic-era serenade reimagining the gallantry of earlier times. One of Europe's finest chamber orchestras in the form of Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen, the world-class Dutch violinist Janine Jansen, and one of the most popular conductors of our era, Paavo Järvi, who is also the scion of a uniquely successful musical dynasty, making him the sole maestro of our time to be able to say that both his father and younger brother - Neeme and Kristjan - are also globally renowned fellow practitioners of his artistic profession.
Why are so many violin concertos written in D major? Because the most important notes in the key (G, D, A and E) each correspond to one of the instrument's open strings. The predecessor to Brahms's 1878 concerto was Beethoven's masterpiece from 1806: this is the source of the work's dignity, power, seriousness and solemnity. The Hungarian motifs in the finale, however, allude to the fact that the composer wrote the composition for his friend József Joachim. Although the D major Serenade is a rar...ely played youthful work, it deserves to be played more often - and it will be good to hear it at last. It seems like it was just yesterday, rather than a few years into the new millennium, that we were marvelling at the refreshing virtuosity of a young Janine Jansen. Today, though, she has already been one of the forces on the international circuit for many years now. The Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen formed - originally in Frankfurt - in 1980. It attained professional status in 1987 and moved its base of operations to Bremen in 1992. Just like with any other truly noteworthy chamber orchestra, its members are also steeped in the symphonic repertoire. Paavo Järvi, a former student of Leonard Bernstein's, has demonstrated his skills with many orchestras around the world, from Cincinnati to Frankfurt and Paris. Today, he serves as the artistic director for these musicians from Bremen.
