MUSIC AND PHILOSOPHY: BIG QUESTIONS, INVISIBLE ANSWERS... 

WED Apr 18, 2018 20:00 | LOTTE Concert Hall

 

Thierry Fischer, conductor

Håkan Hardenberger, trumpet

 

Haydn, Symphony No. 22 in E-flat major, Hob.I:22, 'The Philosopher’


Ives, The Unanswered Question


Zimmermann, Trumpet Concerto in C major, 'Nobody Knows De Trouble I See'


--------- Intermission 20min ---------------


Beethoven, Overture to the ballet Die Geschöpfe des Prometheus (The Creatures of Prometheus), Op. 43


R. Strauss, Also sprach Zarathustra, Op. 30


Total Duration: about 120 mins(incl. intermission)

 

In the primal darkness, there’s a beam of light. A trumpet sounds, two chords blast forth – and in an instant, the whole universe is ablaze with colour. Richard Strauss wanted Also Sprach Zarathustra to tell the “entire story of humanity”, but if that world-famous opening is all you know, you’re in for a marvellous surprise! Strauss’s homage to Nietzsche is the spectacular climax to a whole concert of philosophical questions, from Haydn’s delightfully inquisitive early symphony and Beethoven’s celebration of the Enlightenment to Charles Ives’s mysterious The Unanswered Question. And with Håkan Hardenberger – possibly the world’s pre-eminent living classical trumpeter – joining Thierry Fischer in Zimmerman’s soulful concerto, the questions tonight will be just as gripping as the answers.
