DANIEL BEHLE

Kings of Bravura

Concerto Köln

Margravial Opera House Bayreuth

The internationally distinguished tenor and composer Daniel Behle commands a repertoire ranging from music of the Baroque era and Mozart to Wagner and Richard Strauss. For his programme “Kings of Bravura” he has delved deep into the archives. Together with this year’s Orchestra in Residence of the Bayreuth Baroque Opera Festival, he presents arias from the second half of the eighteenth century which have lain dormant in the archives ever since their creation.

The concert takes us on a journey throughout Europe: from England via Denmark, Germany and Austria all the way to Italy and Spain. Several of the composers included here were acquaintances of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and held by him in high esteem.  Besides Italian composers such as Giuseppe Sarti, Tommaso Traetta and Luigi Gatti, who helped Mozart’s sister Nannerl to scout for unknown works by their great fellow composer, we meet German composers like Joseph Schuster, whose works were in part attributed to Mozart, or Peter von Winter, who composed a sequel to The Magic Flute. In Mozart’s friend Josef Mysliveček we also encounter a long-forgotten Bohemian composer, but whose name can be read more and more frequently in recent years on European concert programmes.
