Brahms Double Concerto for violin and cello
Bruckner Symphony No. 2
Vladimir Jurowski conductor
Julia Fischer violin
Daniel Müller-Schott cello
Bruckner’s Second Symphony is where his epic symphonic journey really begins – where we encounter for the first time that rhythmic power, rolling inevitability and humble tunefulness that make his huge orchestral canvases so irresistible. Brahms simply hoped his Double Concerto for violin and cello ‘might deliver some fun’. But it turned out to be one of his most unique and strangely touching works – a piece full of fantasy and invention that has been described as an ‘endless love song’ between two instruments, ‘an opera without words’.
