Hermann Levi (1839–1900) attracted attention early on due to his musical talent. After studying music, he first worked as a conductor. In his early days, however, he also composed a lot, especially songs, of which the baritone René Perler and Edward Rushton put together a selection at the piano. Songs by Schumann, Herzogenberg, Duparc and Brahms complete the program. Brahms was initially close friends with Levi, but later there was a falling out over Levi's commitment to Wagner. The present program was played in the Wahnfried house on Wagner's original Steinway grand piano, which the composer received in 1876 as a gift from Steinway & Sons.

„Grenzgang - Crossing borders: Wandering between different worlds - In this music, border crossings become audible to me: from baroque to contemporary music, from music to religion, from the secular to the divine. That is why it is also about life and death, resurrection, enlightenment and remembrance - as in Bach's Chaconne in memory of his first wife Maria Barbara Bach".

Le long du quai was born from the reunion of a great friendship and the love of beautiful music ; music which speaks to us and moves us, music brought from the heart to the heart. Amazed that several of the most beautiful mélodies from French repertoire were composed using poems by Sully Prudhomme, we wanted to learn more about this famous stranger and winner of the first Nobel Prize in Literature. We encountered a poet and philosopher with a moving idealism, who was often melancholic. Prudhomme was a well-known Académicien in France in his time and one of the first instigators of the Parnasse movement. His texts were used by the greatest composers. As a result, we discovered and rediscovered a whole bunch of inspiring mélodies composed by Fauré and Duparc, but also mélodies by less famous, but just as interesting composers, such as Dubois, Franck, Widor, or Enesco…

Bach’s Chaconne and folk music from Denmark? Biber’s Passacaglia and a Swiss “Scottish”? And all that for viola alone? Played on a very special instrument: the famous Stradivarius viola “Gibson” from 1743… When Ursula Sarnthein, violist in the Zurich Tonhalle Orchestra, began recording the famous Chaconne from Bach’s Partita in D minor, BWV 2004, in September 2020, she did not yet know exactly where the journey would take her. The goal was to record music that crossed the violist’s musical path and that touched her – and that she can play alone on the viola. And her viola is a very special instrument: it’s the famous “Gibson”, that Stradivari has built in 1734.

The Nikolaus Harnoncourt's legendary Zurich farewell concert of November 2011. After 36 years of opera and concert activities at Lake Zurich, the maestro bid farewell to his orchestra and his audience with Mozart's Wind Serenade K. 361 and Beethoven's Fifth Symphony. The conductor originally intended to work on the Gran Partita at the performance venue, the Zurich Tonhalle. However, as he was already in poor health, the meticulous rehearsals typical of the maestro were moved to his home in St. Georgen in Upper Austria. The musicians of the Philharmonia Zurich (formerly the Zurich Opera House Orchestra), who were able to experience how the interpretation was fine"tuned there, still talk today with shining eyes about this intensive and immensely enriching collaboration. So it is not surprising that the orchestra gave literally "everything" at the farewell concert for one of the most important of his guild, in order to give its conductor a worthy musical farewell.
