Introduction

Frank Peter Zimmermann first performed Alban Berg’s Violin Concerto in 1988 at a concert commemorating the 50th anniversary of Crystal Night: ”Berg’s concerto is a requiem, a work of art, a small universe that gets under your skin. I never tire of playing it.” The premiere of a new piece by Kaija Saariaho arouses great curiosity: what direction is the internationally acclaimed composer moving in?
