Only the best will do
1st Hansa II subscription concert
Works by Stravinsky, Schumann and Haydn
In America he has long been one of the greats of his league, yet in Europe he is known only to aficionados. David Zinman, pupil of the legendary Pierre Monteux, took over the Tonhalle-Orchester Zürich in 1995 where he shaped its artistic fortunes for almost two decades. With Beethoven, Mahler and Strauss, Zinman successfully presented thrilling oeuvres, true to his credo: »I have always had a very special relationship with music.« Zinman is returning to a Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen subscription concert after a long break. His demands? Only the highest: »I analyse an orchestra’s performance rather like a football trainer who wants to elicit the best from his team.« The soloist is Maximilian Hornung, who felt his musician’s calling early on. He skipped school and studied in Zurich and Berlin, became principal cellist in Munich and now performs as a freelance musician with some of the best-known ensembles in the world – as now in Bremen.
