Scandinavian couple in today's concert: the Danish Thomas Dausgaard meets the Norwegian violinist and composer Henning Kraggerud, who presents, on his Guarneri del Gesù of 1744, the Humoresques of the Finnish Sibelius. Dausgaard, honorary conductor of the Orchestra della Toscana and of the Danish National Symphony, is also in charge of the main baton of the BBC Scottish Symphony, the Swedish Chamber and the Seattle Symphony. Kraggerud, artistic director of the Arctic Philharmonic Chamber Orchestra, has been awarded the Sibelius prize for live performances and in disc of the composer's music. Also scheduled Requies by Luciano Berio, written between 1983 and 1985 in memory of his wife Cathy Berberian. an amazing singer with a unique voice, and the last of Brahms' symphonies, the Fourth, a century earlier, whose last movement looks back, towards the Baroque era. It is in fact a chaconne, that is a theme that stubbornly repeats itself, on the bass, for several times, while the other instruments build on it a building of amazing conceptual complexity.
