The concert is sponsored by

This concert is enabled by the sponsor Peter E. Eckes. The celebrated soprano Marlis Petersen, together with the Munich Radio Orchestra under Ulf Schirmer will interpret the plaintive Four Last Songs.  Ein Heldenleben – a hero’s life - is one of the works reflected in this year’s theme. Richard Strauss describes events in the life of a „hero“ (himself) and his wife, deploying an overwhelming palette of glorious colours and musical creation. Similarly inventive and difficult, full of bravura and wit is the Burlesque for Piano and Orchestra, in which the young French pianist Bertrand Chamayou, one of the shooting stars of his generation, will demonstrate his virtuosity.
