Beethoven & Franck

When César Franck's prominent D minor Symphony premiered at the Paris Conservatory in 1889, her idiosyncratic style overwhelmed the audience. Today the piece is regarded as a masterpiece and proves that a scandal of the present can become a classic of the future. Bernd Richard Deutsch is one of Austria's most successful young composers. To describe his style as idiosyncratic would be too far-reaching. What is certain is that he has a strong will for his own musical language. His gripping cello concerto is played in Grafenegg by Johannes Moser, who is a guest soloist with the best orchestras in the world.
