Musical Sunday – Jean Sibelius

  • Jean Sibelius, Violin Concerto in D minor
  • Marcus Imbsweiler & Timo Jouko Herrmann
  • Concert, Literature
Many critics have only touched his works with pointed fingers. With the public, on the other hand, Jean Sibelius has always enjoyed great recognition. And so his Violin Concerto also enjoys lasting popularity: as a work that combines the classical form of the solo concerto with a very special sound character. National character, occidental tradition and personal style are inseparably interwoven here. Musical Sunday with Timo Jouko Herrmann and Marcus Imbsweiler this time on a sound journey to Finland!

Marcus Imbsweiler and Timo Jouko Herrmann give an overview of the multitude of musical means used and trace further peculiarities of this work.
Here, two enthusiasts have their say who have their very own linguistic approach to music. Imbsweiler has previously published novels and short stories about composers from Haydn to Shostakovich. Herrmann is guest conductor of the Heidelberg Symphony; his rediscovery of the song of joy Per la ricuperata salute di Ofelia, composed by Salieri, Mozart, and Cornetti, made him known worldwide.

The event will take place at the DAI Heidelberg and in parallel on the dai HOME Livestream.
