Another Staatsoper highlight before they close the season with their *crappy* new music festival. A benefeit concert! In Philharmonie! With ASM! What could you ask for more?
On the fourth of July (hey, US Independence Day!), it was a Brahms night. His Violinkonzert D-Dur op. 77 opened the night. Mutter, stood beside the ever magnificent Barenboim, executed the piece in such a wonderful, concentrated way.
Brahms No. 4 is the second part of the concert. It's a good decent interpretation from Barenboim and our folks of Staatskapelle Berlin.
I'm looking forward for their next beneficial concert! Hope it's gonna be a more colorful programm, but... as for now, it's satisfactory.
EXTRA: a listening-tip, simply a 'classic' album, a must for Brahms' & Mutter's lovers...
