Schumann meets Wagner

Philippe Jordan is one of the most successful Swiss conductors; he was chief conductor at the Paris Opéra and with the Vienna Symphony Orchestra, and he is still music director of the Vienna State Opera until 2025. Now he is coming to Zurich once again – with works by Wagner and Schumann and a sound that is conceivably far removed from the cliché of opulently charged romanticism. Lean, transparent, slag-free: this is how he shapes his interpretations. Incidentally, Wagner and Schumann knew each other personally; their relationship was "quite friendly", wrote the critic Eduard Hanslick, and they were also quite in agreement politically. However, Schumann found it irritating that Wagner talked so much – while Wagner, conversely, found Schumann's extensive silence strange. The fact that they also had very different musical ideas will not be overheard in this concert.
