Program Info: Dresdner Philharmonie Pablo González, conductor Arabella Steinbacher, violin
Erich Wolfgang Korngold said of his violin concerto that it was "more for a Caruso than a Paganini." Indeed, the work impresses more with its melting cantilenas than with breakneck virtuosity. Richard Strauss understood the symphonic poem ›Ein Heldenleben‹ as a self-portrait. That this was possible is proof of the artist's high social status towards the end of the 19th century. However, Strauss saw himself as a peaceful man, while the hero of his symphonic poetry also shows warlike tendencies. The richness of sound of the very large orchestra is overwhelming, which can lead to intoxicating effects.
Erich Wolfgang Korngold - Concerto for violin and orchestra in D major (1939 / rev. 1945), the concerto has themes from the scores for the movies ANOTHER DAWN (1937), ANTHONY ADVERSE (1936) & THE PRINCE AND THE PAUPER (1937) Richard Strauss - A hero's life, Symphonic Poem (1898)
