Schumann’s Violin Concerto

The phenomenal Frank Peter Zimmermann is the soloist and Alan Gilbert conducts.

Frank Peter Zimmermann is widely acclaimed for his beautifully resonant violin-playing and he is considered one of the foremost violin soloists of our time. He has guest-performed at Konserthuset Stockholm many times before and is currently on the programme for the ongoing festivities in honour of the anniversary of Beethoven. At this concert, we will hear him in Robert Schumann’s passionate Violin Concerto.

The conductor will be American Alan Gilbert, who recently took over as chief conductor of the Hamburg NDR Elbphilharmonie. He is also the newly appointed music director of the Royal Swedish Opera in Stockholm. Gilbert was chief conductor of the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra from 2000–2008 and he is now conductor laureate; he was subsequently chief conductor of the New York Philharmonic Orchestra.

Here, he will lead the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra in Symphonia Domestica, a tone poem describing a day in the life of composer Richard Strauss. Each family member has their own theme and there is also a lullaby, a dream, a love scene and an abrupt awakening.
