Interview with the soloists David, Edgar and Jérémie Moreau

Get in the mood for the programme now! The latest episode of the 'Concert Corner' podcast series is all about egocentric composers, operatic concert moments and musical insights into Richard Strauss' bedchamber. (in German)


The three French brothers David, Edgar and Jérémie Moreau have been making music together since childhood. Beethoven's Triple Concerto makes it possible for us to experience all three of them together as soloists.

Among composers, only Richard Strauss has managed to reveal family secrets musically - in his Sinfonia domestica. In doing so, he took his role model Goethe as his starting point, who believed that an artist should first and foremost draw «from the poetic content of his own life».

Gustav Holst
The Planets (1916) 


5.30 pm: Discovery programme with Benjamin François


Even the ancient Greeks believed that the movements of the celestial bodies create a harmony of the spheres that has an influence on the human soul. In his seven-movement programme music The Planets, Gustav Holst took up mythological ideas people had about the planets: from the warlike Mars to the dissolute pleasure of Jupiter.

Before that, you will experience the Basel debut of the American string trio Time for Three, TF3 for short. The American composer Kevin Puts imagined that the refrain of his concerto for TF3 and orchestra could be a message sent into space, containing references to our DNA, to our nature as earthlings.

Sinfonieorchester Basel

Benjamin Britten
Serenade for Tenor, Horn and Strings, op. 31 (1943)

Anton Bruckner
Symphony No. 7 E major, WAB 107 (1883)


6.45 pm: Concert introduction with Hans-George 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.
