About

Berg's Concerto for violin, an intense work affected by grief, interpreted by the violinist Gidon Kremer.

Alban Berg's Violin concerto, dedicated "To the memory of an angel," was composed in 1935. The dedication is not a poetic reference. The "angel" mentioned by the composer is Manon Gropius, daughter of Alma Mahler (Gustav Mahler's ex-wife) and Walter Gropius, architect and founder of the Bauhaus movement. Alban Berg, a close friend of the Gropius couple, was deeply affected by Manon's death, at the early age of 18.
