The duet-concertino, the next piece to be played by the orchestra, was composed by Strauss after the war in Switzerland where he found a short-term refuge. The premiere was broadcast on radio. The composer did not attend the concert but noted in his diary that he at least listened to the radio broadcast. Strauss dedicated the concert to his friend Hugo Burghauser and wrote to him: „The dancing princess is frightened by the grotesque panting of the bear who imitates her. Eventually the animal wins her over and dances with him, whereupon he transforms himself into a prince. In the end, you too will be transformed into a prince and live happily ever after…”

The evening will conclude with Wagner’s Symphony in C major. The composer of great epic three-hour operas will appear here in a somewhat different light – his only completed symphony belongs to his early works.
