Contrary to Arnold Schönberg’s and Anton Webern’s idiosyncratic treatment of Bach’s music, Gustav Mahler’s transcription of pieces from two of the Orchestral Suites could not be more faithful to the original text. Arranged for his first „Historical Concert“ with the New York Philharmonic Orchestra in 1909, the Suite even includes a written-out basso continuo part which saw Mahler himself at the keyboard. The following works by two Russian composers, Igor Stravinsky and Dmitri Shostakovich, could not be in greater contrast to each other. While Stravinsky’s neo-classically seasoned Capriccio was a breadwinning piece (the soloist, Yulianna Avdeeva, is the first-prize winner of the 2010 Chopin Competition), Shostakovich’s Tenth Symphony, surely amongst his most popular works, was written in a gasp of relief after Stalin’s death in 1953.
