This year, the 75-year-old serenades with a select group of performers: Carl Orff's Carmina Burana is on the programme, a piece with almost unique expressiveness and musical depth. Justus Frantz gives one of the most famous choral works in music history a new twist and delights the audience. A must list of the Rheingau Musik Festival.
August 17th, 2019
Kurhaus Wiesbaden, Friedrich-von-Thiersch-Saal

Sergei Rachmaninov
Piano Concerto No. 2 in C minor, Op. 18
Dmitri Shostakovich
Symphony No. 10 in E minor (Op. 93)

Jan Lisiecki, piano
Australian Youth Orchestra
Krzysztof Urbanski, conductor

Jan Lisiecki mixes up the genre with his fresh approach and inspires the audience of the Rheingau Musik Festival as the soloist of Sergei Rachmaninov's great 2nd piano concerto - an homage to romanticism, with songlike melodious tones. Also on the programme: Dmitri Shostakovich's 10th Symphony. It has been alleged that Stalin's death in March of the same year had provided the main impetus for the symphony, and the second movement, in particular, is a portrait of the deceased tyrant.
