Rudolstadtfestival 2017 on Arte: Amy Macdonald | Toots & The Maytals

Amy Macdonald: Sunday, August 12th, 11:45 p.m., Arte

Gold and platinum for millions of CDs sold as well as sold-out concert halls do not alter Amy Macdonald’s fundamental attitude: “I just want people to be happy when they hear my songs.” She was more than successful at doing that at the opening of the Rudolstadt Festival 2017 – 18,000 spectators were completely bowled over.

Beethoven: Triple Concerto – Blomstedt, Gewandhausorchester – Faust, Queyras, Helmchen | on MDR Television

Thursday, April 26th, 11:35 p.m., MDR Television

More than 200 years after its premiere at the Gewandhaus in Leipzig, the famous trio Isabelle Faust, Jean-Guihen Queyras and Martin Helmchen have congenially mastered the artistic challenge of Beethoven’s gemstone together with the Gewandhausorchester. Under Herbert Blomstedt’s sensitive direction, the soloists unite chamber music intimacy together with virtuoso sophistication – and prove once again that the Triple Concerto is an unduly underestimated, much too rarely programmed masterpiece.
