Bratislava native Franz Schmidt wrote many significant symphonic works. However, it was his opera Notre Dame based on the famous novel by Victor Hugo that brought him the greatest popularity. Its Vienna premiere in 1914 secured international recognition for the composer. It is rarely staged nowadays, but three orchestral intermezzi have become a stable part of the repertory of […]

Out of Brahms’ two symphonic overtures from 1880 the Tragic one represents a more personal expression than the occasional Academic one. In his Sinfonia concertante Haydn played with a unique quartet of solo instruments “opposing” the orchestra. Concerto for Orchestra belongs to the last works of Bartók’s creative period. He composed it in 1943 in American exile on the commission of Serge Koussevitzky, who premiered it one […]

Bartók wrote his Divertimento for strings in 1939, at the outset of World War 2, a while before he left Hungary. It was commissioned by his friend Paul Sacher, who led Basel Chamber Orchestra at that time. In this relaxing work the composer coped with traditions and form principles of the Baroque concerto grosso. Haydn’s playful Piano Concerto in D major is […]

The ballet suite The Firebird belongs to the […]
