About the Event

In this morning concert, a sense of intimacy and tenderness permeates the atmosphere. Frédéric Chopin's Piano Concerto in E minor features a slow middle movement, which the composer himself describes as a loving reflection of cherished memories, similar to a daydream on a picturesque, moonlit spring night. Unlike traditional symphonic compositions, Chopin’s piano concertos place the solo part at the center, unopposed. As the piano takes on the role of a virtuoso vocalist, the orchestra graciously supports and complements it. Leading the performance is Rudolf Buchbinder, accompanied by the esteemed Chamber Orchestra Vienna‐Berlin.

Following Chopin's expressive concerto, Antonín Dvořák's Serenade in E major takes the stage, offering a delightful and captivating experience. This piece showcases noble entertainment at its finest, characterized by its light‐hearted and charming nature. It can be likened to a miniature symphony, effortlessly incorporating a waltz and a heavenly Larghetto movement. Dvořák's exceptional craftsmanship is showcased throughout, creating a sublime musical journey.
