Then, following a performance of Milhaud’s jazz-accented ballet La création du monde, internationally acclaimed violinist Pinchas Zukerman will take on Bruch’s passionate First Concerto.

OSM Classical Spree / Virée classique

Classical SpreeThe 5th edition of the OSM Classical Spree Festival is a grand celebration of classical music, where great international masters meet a new generation of rising talent, performing work by composers of yesterday and today. With a colourful offering of more than 30 concerts over 4 days, the possibilities are nearly endless. Chamber music, recitals, vocal music, world music, youth oriented concerts, and of course symphonic concerts make up the varied programming.  This year the programming breaches the traditional borders of the concert hall, with a whole new series of free outdoor performances, movie and opera screenings.
