Bach/Webern Fugue in Six Voices
Lachenmann Double (Grido)
Brahms Piano Concerto No 1

London Symphony Orchestra
Peter Eötvös conductor
Maurizio Pollini piano

The choreographer George Balanchine, who used the Fugue in Six Voices, believed that Webern’s orchestral music (here, a 1935 arrangement from Bach’s Musical Offering) ‘fills the air like molecules; it is written for atmosphere.’ Helmut Lachenmann wrote his disquieting Double (Grido II) for string orchestra in 2004. Brahms completed writing his titanic First Piano Concerto in 1859 after the tormented death of Robert Schumann, but it also reflects his guilty love for Robert’s widow Clara.
