Richard Strauss' fantastically orchestrated symphonic poem „Till Eulenspiegels lustige Streiche“ (Till Eulenspiegel's Merry Pranks) drives his hero musically through a fool's life of ups and downs, in which drasticness is just as much present as poetry – the Konzerthausorchester Berlin, under its principal conductor Joana Mallwitz, plays this rousing piece for you as a prelude. It is impossible to imagine the cello repertoire without Joseph Haydn. It is hard to believe that the famous virtuoso C major concerto was only found in Prague in 1961, after it had been thought to be lost since Haydn's lifetime. Gautier Capuçon, a French star of his guild, will interpret it. Also on the programme are a Haydn symphony with the belatedly coined epithet „The Bear“ and a contemporary examination of the composer by Peter Ruzicka.
