The CBSO's former music director returns to his old stomping ground for a programme that mixed a Romantic staple with an austere 20th-century work.
Yefim Bronfman was the astonishing piano soloist for the Cleveland premiere of of Jörg Widmann's Trauermarsch. Franz Welser-Möst then led a transporting performance of Bruckner's Seventh Symphony.
Gidon Kremer, long-time champion of Sofia Gubaidulina, joined the Berliner Philharmoniker and Christian Thielemann for a performance of In tempus praesens.
An evening of heavy-hitting, late Romantic symphonic and operatic repertoire by Bruckner and Wagner that was rich in artistry, if a little overwhelming for some.
