Franz Welser-Möst conducts Brahms and Bruckner - With Matthias Goerne Verbier Festival 2019

About

“If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.” (I Corinthians, 13:1) Brahms’s Vier ernste Gesänge (“Four Serious Songs”) set the Christian scriptures to music, exploring man’s restless wanderings on Earth and ultimate destination of death. This musical meditation is paired with Bruckner’s Ninth Symphony, a fitting echo since the work would become the composer’s last symphony—superstitious individuals would explain that by the famous “curse of the ninth symphony”, part of the legacy of Beethoven. Catch these two masterpieces on the stage of the Verbier Festival with maestro Franz Welser-Möst at the baton joined by the talented baritone Matthias Goerne.
