Johannes Brahms: Clarinet Quintet in b flat minor / Hungarian Dance No. 1 in g minor
Stephan Koncz: Dances from Transylvania
Max Bruch: Rumanian Melody
Valery Gavrilin: Walztz from “Anyuta”, etc.
It is all very casual and un-philharmonic when Daniel Ottensamer and his philharmonic colleagues from Vienna and Berlin slip into the role of the “Philharmonix”. They have one main objective: firing things up. They transform melodies from all over the world into their “sound”. Once Ödön Rácz, solo bassist of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, gets going, the others have to hurry to keep up with him – in their irresistible Balkan-Viennese blend of styles. Johannes Brahms would have enjoyed it. After all, clarinet quintets in his time were not well behaved either. Finally, Stephan Koncz’s “Tänze aus Transsylvanien” will make sure that the audience is blown out of their seats.
