They crossed the musical border between Austria and Hungary: Joseph Haydn und Franz Liszt, who are juxtaposed in this concert by Iván Fischer. From Liszt we hear Eine Faust-Symphonie, which vividly portrays the protagonists of Goethe’s tragedy: the brooding title character, the sensitive Gretchen, and the mischievous Mephisto. Haydn, on the other hand, is represented by his charming Sinfonia concertante, whose solo parts are played by musicians of the Berliner Philharmoniker.
