Karajan Memorial Concert
The final of four concerts on the Karajan’s commemorative centenary tour, the Berlin Philharmonic has never sounded better in the Golden Hall of Vienna’s Musikverein. Beginning with Beethoven’s Violin Concerto, a once misunderstood but now celebrated work, Anne-Sophie Mutter delivers a sensual and beautiful performance; in many ways a memorial for two men she grew up with, Beethoven and Karajan. Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No.6 Pathétique is a fitting finale, as celebratory as it is funereal in this powerful, full-bodied account under the baton of Seiji Ozawa. PROGRAM BEETHOVEN Violin Concerto Op.61 J.S. BACH Sarabande in D Minor BWV1004 (Encore) TCHAIKOVSKY Symphony No.6 Op.74 Pathétique ARTISTS Seiji Ozawa, conductor Anne-Sophie Mutter, violin Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra
