It was the celebrated 19th century violinist Joseph Joachim who stated that the Germans have four violin concertos. Of these, he asserted, the greatest is Beethoven's, the most serious that of Brahms, and the most intimate Mendelssohn's, but the richest and most seductive is the work by Max Bruch. Joachim was clearly thinking of the Violin Concerto in G minor - a composition against which all Bruch's other works paled into the background. Likewise little known is the work of Karl Amadeus H...artmann, though many regard him as the greatest German symphonist of the 20th century. The most interesting feature of his Symphony No. 2 is that it comprises just one slow (Adagio) movement, which the composer kept from a discarded work written previously.
In contrast to the two composers mentioned above, Wagner's name needs no introduction. To be performed is a popular piece of music from Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg that is unique for a number of reasons: unlike the composer's other stage works, it is a comic opera, while it is not founded on mythology but on real historical events. On this occasion, the audience will hear the 50-minute symphonic medley created from the three-movement piece by Dutchman Henk de Vlieger.
