Our concert highlights in April 2024
Vladimir Jurowski & Martin HelmchenRundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin Mozart
Besides Mozart's last great Vienna concerto, the Piano Concerto No. 25, the Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin will perform the Third Symphony by Ukrainian composer Borys Lyatoshynsky; in his time, it was subject to Soviet censorship, and thus temporarily had to drop the subtitle of its finale: "Peace will conquer war".
Stéphane Denève & Nikolai LuganskyDeutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin Dukas, Rachmaninow, Auerbach, Prokofiev
At first, Rachmaninoff's 2nd Piano Concerto did not quite manage to write itself; after a hypnotherapy, it then downright poured out: to express his gratitude, Rachmaninoff dedicated the concerto to the doctor – probably the most impressive proof possible for the rekindling of his creativity. Besides this grandiose work, you can hear Lera Auerbach's "Ikarus": the impatience of Icarus's heart fascinated the composer.

Karajan-Akademie der Berliner PhilharmonikerDamen des RIAS Kammerchor StudioDamen des RIAS KammerchoresKarajan-Akademie der Berliner Philharmoniker Schubert, Mendelssohn Bartholdy
We know Mendelssohn Bartholdy's "Wedding March" from the "Midsummer Night's Dream"; Schubert's "Entr'acte" from "Rosamunde" may well be familiar to classical music enthusiasts. But one hears the complete suite or the complete incidental music from "Midsummer Night's Dream" much more rarely. The RIAS Kammerchor Berlin, together with the Berlin Philharmonic's Karajan Academy, intend to change this.
Yamada & ZimmermannDeutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin Owen, Brahms, Rachmaninow
Morfydd Llwyn Owen was an unbelievably productive composer who noted down 250 compositions in her mere 27 years of life. The Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin will perform her Nocturne in D-flat major – conducted by Kazuki Yamada. This will be followed by Brahms's only, very difficult Violin Concerto. The evening concludes with Rachmaninoff's popular 2nd Symphony.
