Famed German baritone Christian Gerhaher brings his renowned talents to the top-notch Bamberg Symphony, under the expert direction of Daniel Harding, in this live event from Bamberg! Conductor and soloist, both celebrated for their interpretations of the work of Gustav Mahler, begin the concert with his Rückert-Lieder, a setting of Friedrich Rückert’s poetry where words and music intertwine to create a rich tapestry of melodies, timbres and rhythms. The evening closes out with a breathtaking performance of Schumann’s Symphony No. 2, a mysterious work written during a long period of depression that nevertheless brims with a sense of triumph, especially in the moving Allegro that concludes the symphony.
