From the pastoral landscapes of Beethoven's Symphony No.6 to the vibrant folk scenes of Strauss' sound-poem Till Eulenspiegels lustige Streiche and Dvořak's Violin Concerto, this Prom takes a vivid journey across Central Europe. At the BBC Proms 2014, the world's largest classical music festival, David Zinman appeared in his final concert as chief conductor of Zurich's Tonhalle Orchestra, stepping down after almost 20 years.
Julia Fischer "was the accomplished and eloquent soloist" (Evening Standard) performing Dvořák's richly lyrical Violin Concerto with "the kind of flawless technique and steely vibrato that seems impervious to human fallibility" (The Telegraph).

"This beautiful Prom marked the end of an era. David Zinman's final concert as chief conductor of the Zurich Tonhalle was a superb example of his intelligent musicianship" The Guardian

Recorded: Royal Albert Hall, London, BBC Proms 2014

Reviews:This Prom, which marked the last appearance of David Zinman in his role as Chief Conductor of the Tonhalle Orchestra, showed their partnership has ripened over 19 years into something wonderful. Everything flowed naturally, nothing was exaggerated, and yet in their quiet understated way the performances offered plenty of illumination, as well as joy.
The programme was well chosen for a celebratory farewell, as there was barely a dark moment in any of the three pieces. The "merry pranks," of Richard Strauss's portrait of Till Eulenspiegel were fleet and highly coloured, but never coarse-grained, and the final return of Till's tune after he'd finally met his sticky end was as delicately nostalgic as an old photograph.
In the following piece, Dvořák's violin concerto, the limelight was seized by a very different kind of musicianship, as imperiously virtuoso and blazingly energised as Zinman was relaxed. It came from violinist Julia Fischer, who has the kind of flawless technique and steely vibrato that seems impervious to human fallibility. It was awesomely impressive, and exhilarating in Dvořák's high-stepping Finale, but it held us at a distance. Fischer seemed more the perfect incarnation of the virtuoso violinist, than a musician with a personal take on what she was playing.
After Strauss's high jinks and the folky rumbustiousness of Dvořák, the leisurely paragraphs of Beethoven's Pastoral Symphony could have brought on a fatal lowering of the musical temperature. Yet Zinman managed to make this leisureliness seem riveting, without trying to inject a tension into the music that clearly isn't there.
This was especially noticeable in the slow movement. Zinman took a brisker tempo than is usual for Beethoven's long country ramble, articulating the line so we always felt a sense of purpose throbbing underneath the music's drowsy surface.
