Season Opener with Kirill Petrenko

This is a past event


Kirill Petrenko, chief conductor of the Berliner Philharmoniker, opens the 2020/21 concert season with a programme that combines two cross-seasonal focal points of his work with the orchestra: the cultivation of the Classical-Romantic core repertoire with Johannes Brahms’s melancholy, profound Fourth Symphony, and the music of composers of the Second Viennese School with <em>Verklärte Nacht</em>, a youthful work by Arnold Schoenberg that is still entirely in the tradition of late Romanticism. It was inspired by a poem by Richard Dehmel, which is a homage to free love.
