The fundamentally humanistic sound ideal of Johann Sebastian Bach and his son Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach meets the youthful romantic gesture of Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy: In the 4th Academy Concert, the series of Bach's Brandenburg Concertos, which began in the 1st Academy Concert, continues. A music that is so popular and admired that it flew through space on a data disk on board the “Voyager 2” space probe in 1977 - and is now back in Hamburg. His Symphony No. 6, nicknamed “Hamburger,” shows that Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach does not have to hide from his famous father’s overwhelming legacy. A piece of breathtaking tension with rich tones and a humorous wink. The latter Bach served as a model for another composer, namely Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy. The “Youth Symphony” by the twelve-year-old already foreshadows the composer’s great visionary potential.

Venue: Elbphilharmonie, Recital Hall, Platz der Deutschen Einheit 4, 20457 Hamburg
