A violin concerto by Richard Strauss? Rarely played, not well known but an opportunity not to be missed, played by a soloist who studied in Moscow, France and Switzerland. Viktor Ullmann's Slavonic Rhapsody is another case in point. This composer, teacher and journalist died in a concentration camp in 1944, only a few years after composing the work. Ullmann's countryman Antonín Dvořák's symphonic breakthrough came in 1880 with his op. 60, published as »Symphony Nr. 1« (now known as his 6th symphony).

10 am/7 pm introductory talks (in German) by Klaus Albert Bauer in the main auditorium
