Orchestre symphonique de Lucerne
Michael Sanderling, conductor
Marina Viotti, mezzo-soprano
Switzerland’s longest established orchestra begins the season with a new musical director. German conductor Michael Sanderling has just been appointed in Lucerne at the head of the symphony orchestra founded more than two hundred years ago. He starts his tenure with a visit to the great 19th century composers who stayed in Zurich. Wagner fell in love with Mathilde Wesendonck on the banks of the Limmat river, while Brahms attended the inauguration of the Tonhalle. Five beautiful Wagner songs on texts written by composer’s muse share the bill with Brahms’ most powerful symphony. The work’s manuscript is, in fact, kept in a Zurich library.
Richard Wagner (1813-1883) - Wesendonck Lieder
Johannes Brahms (1833-1897) - Symphony No. 4 in E minor
