Choose four from the following concerts (please mark with a cross):
Katia und Marielle Labèque, piano
Krzysztof Urbański, conductor
Wolfgang Amadé Mozart
Concerto for two Pianos and Orchestra in E flat major, KV 365 (1779)
Le sacre du printemps (1913)
6.45 pm: Concert introduction with Lea Vaterlaus
Stravinsky was continuously inspired by Mozart's music and described him as an «extraordinary rhythmist». The way Mozart ‹grooves› is already audible in the introduction to the Concerto for two Pianos, but when the two sisters Katia and Marielle Labèque exchange the motifs of the final movement like imagined balls, the music takes off and you hear who the gods love.
Electrifying in a completely different, wild and archaic way are the «extraordinary rhythms» in Stravinsky's Sacre, which has evolved from a Parisian scandal piece to an ‹evergreen›.

After the concert critics' roundtable with Benjamin Herzog
None other than the world-renowned violin virtuoso Fritz Kreisler once said: "If you want to know who I think is the greatest living composer, I will say Elgar without hesitation." A little later he commissioned a violin concerto by Elgar, which Kreisler premiered in London in 1910. In the Stadtcasino Basel, one of the most prominent violinists of our time, the gentleman Daniel Hope, meets Ivor Bolton, who comes from near Manchester. An Anglo-Saxon evening awaits under the motto 'Very British', as Dvořák's 8th Symphony, nicknamed The "English" Symphony, is heard after the interval.

Allan Clayton, tenor
Zoltán Mácsai, horn
Ivor Bolton, conductor
Serenade for Tenor, Horn and Strings, op. 31 (1943)
Symphony No. 7 E major, WAB 107 (1883)
6.45 pm: Concert introduction with Hans-Georg Hofmann
Shortly before the end of the Second World War, Benjamin Britten wrote his Serenade for Tenor, Horn and Strings on six texts by English poets from different centuries. The result is a touching piece of night music, which is turned into a special experience by the tender, gentle and pure tenor voice of the British Allan Clayton.
Bruckner achieved his breakthrough with the public with his 7th Symphony. It was the turning point for the better in his life.
