Semyon Bychkov with Brahms

Tonhalle am See
Claridenstrasse 7
8002 Zürich

Dmitri Schostakowitsch Cellokonzert Nr. 1 Es-Dur op. 107

Johannes Brahms Sinfonie Nr. 4 e-Moll op. 98

Brahms's Symphony No. 4 was "huge, quite peculiar, quite new, brazen individuality. Athmet unparalleled energy from a to z": this is how conductor Hans von Bülow cheered after a rehearsal of the work. It is now conducted by Semyon Bychkov, who also has a lot of energy – not only on the podium. In recent months, as a Russian who had already emigrated in 1975, he has spoken out against the war at every opportunity. When he now performs Shostakovich's Cello Concerto No. 1 alongside Brahms's Fourth, it is undoubtedly about more than just music.
